Ooh LaLa La Fete bio picture
  • When Colette Lopez founded La Fete Weddings, it seemed the natural evolution of the things she truly loved: design, entertaining and love. Years later, her daughter has joined her and their chemistry sings of a match made in heaven. The mother-daughter team laugh together, shop together, work together and seem so closely connected that they finish each other's sentences- jumping in excitedly when talk turns to design and inspiration. It is, after all, their specialty.

    Their blog is to inspire and show you what they have created for their clients, and also what they can do for you. La Fete believes that each wedding should be as unique as the people getting married. They desire to create events that reflect each couples personalities and taste. La Fete has access to some amazing venues available in Southern California. Please check out the location section of the blog... Enjoy!

From the Bride… “We envisioned our wedding to be modern, traditional and elegant. We chose the San Ysidro Ranch for it’s storied history, privacy, romantic, intimate and scenic location. Because only our immediate families were in attendance, we opted for a formal and elegant affair serenaded by an acoustic duo under the stars. We enjoyed a caviar and champagne cocktail hour, followed by a fine wine pairing and a five course dinner with accompaniment of amuse bouche and an intermezzo.”

It was truly an affair to remember from the exchanging of our vows on the lower lawn, to the decadent sit-down dinner, chandeliers hanging from the branches above us creating a whimsical setting. The enchanting glow of the candles, lavish table settings, aromatic fragrance from the lush floral arraignments complimenting the aroma of the fine cuisine.”

Los Angeles Wedding Videographer- Artisan Productions

As a coordinator- so much thought, time and energy is put into planning & designing our weddings and the day itself goes by so quickly. We turn all of our hope & trust over to the photographers & videographers on the day of & pray that they capture the magic that transpires… and then, we wait. We wait for the day that the photographers sends us the photos and spend half a day sorting through our favorites. We also wait for the day when the videographer sends us their final edit of the wedding film and we smile & laugh as we re-live the happiest day of our clients lives. Well this wedding film was no exception & Artisan Productions NEVER disappoints!

Open this video in full screen, turn the volume up & enjoy this beautiful work of art that Aaron captured of Nicole & Walker’s Wedding Day:

The interior of the ballroom was filled with romantic draping & uplighting and then tall maple trees added freshness & brought life into the space. We used tall gold bar backs from Revelry Event Design to mark the two main bars in the space. Then we mixed in a combination of round, square and rectangular tables into the ballroom which held varieties of tall and low blush floral centerpieces and tons of candles! Michelle also loved the mixture of chairs that Tent Merchant provided. We used tall upholstered chairs for the head table which really set it apart!
