February 22, 2021

We are so excited to share that the beautiful wedding of Danielle and Maks was recently featured over on Carats and Cake! See more about this beautiful and elegant wedding below, and head over to Carats and Cake for the full feature!

Here is a quote from their wedding planner, Nicole George to give you a more completely picture of this beautiful event.

“I worked with Daniella and Maksim very closely from the beginning of their engagement to create their dream of a classically elegant downtown Los Angeles wedding. In choosing Alexandria Ballrooms, a hidden and historic gem in the heart of downtown LA, the warm and inviting ballrooms gave an ode to 17th century French architectural design with it’s high ceilings, gold detail, wooden floors, endless mirrors, and sky-high windows.

The venue provided a naturally classic and elegant setting but we added pops of deep and rich hues and texture into the florals and design to create a more modern and youthful ambiance. The bright florals matched the bride’s vibrant personality whereas the hidden nooks and hallways created intimate and private moments that the groom felt was important to incorporate into their day. Aside from textural florals, our rentals and lighting played a large piece to help the space feel more intimate. By lighting up the floor to ceilings in soft shades, incorporating family-style dining, and touches of gold, down to the flatware, heighted the guest experience.

Although the ballroom space immediately felt inviting and intimate, our band certainly helped create a lively opportunity for all guests to feel welcome on the dancefloor. Daniella and Makim opted for courses upon courses upon courses of Russian family favorites to be served all night long followed by a 12′ long dessert display of yummy donuts, cake, berries, and traditional Russian pastries. The atmosphere was classic in all the right ways but spicing up the “traditional” style of wedding with splashes of modern and youthful flair was what made Daniella and Maksim’s wedding beyond perfect!” – Nicole George, Owner + Creative Director
