Stephanie + David | Vera Wang Wedding from Jay Goldman Photography
Stephanie + David’s wedding comes to us from Beverly Hills with an outdoor evening ceremony and ballroom reception at the Four Seasons. I love all of the the lush florals in ivory and white throughout this couple’s wedding: a flowered archway and chuppah, and oodles of plush roses, carnations, hydrangeas, calla lilies, and more, giving the atmosphere such a romantic, elegant and formal feel…not to mention, perfectly compliments Stephanie’s Vera Wang gown, Gemma. Don’t miss Stephanie’s long flowing loose curls and her delicate diamond encrusted belt – she looks so relaxed and glamorous. Enjoy!

The Ceremony We had an outdoor lawn ceremony, with white flowers everywhere. Flowered archway entrance and a flowered chuppah. There was a four-piece string quarter (West Coast Music) and soft golden lighting.
The Reception Our reception took place in the ballroom at the Four Seasons. We started with a cocktail hour in the outdoor patio, followed by dinner and dancing in the ballroom. Our colors were ivories and champagnes – everything neutral and elegant. We had gorgeous centerpieces mounted by antique silver candelabra-type things. Mix of square and round tables, and mix of high and low centerpieces. The walls were accented with soft golden lighting and designs.
Stephanie’s Dress Search I found the Vera Wang Gemma dress online before I began my physical search and thought it was the most gorgeous dress I’d ever seen. The first dress I asked to try on once I started shopping was the Gemma – I just fell in LOVE with it from the pictures. I was nervous it wouldn’t fit, but it was PERFECT. I continued to try on about 30 additional dresses, but just kept coming back to Gemma.
How Stephanie Felt in Her Wedding Dress I felt, glamorous, beautiful, and loved. It was the perfect dress for me.
Why Stephanie Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress I’m a very practical person. Plus I live in NYC – it’s not like I’ve got a ton of space to store a wedding dress! Plus, I know that if I end up having a daughter who is anything like me, she’s going to want her own dress.
