Leslie and Jeffrey's wedding is especially deserving of getting this SIX page spread in BRIDES. Every detail was so meticulously designed and planned, with Leslie at the helm as a super involved bride and a group of very talented Event Professionals to support her. Beaulieu Garden is a beautiful, magical property in the wine country. As soon as you drive down the tree lined path, you cannot help but instantly fall in love with the picturesque beauty around you. It was the perfect place to hold Leslie and Jeffrey's 'summer getaway' wedding, where friends and families traveled from all over the world to celebrate with this special couple.
This wedding had all the elements of a perfect guest experience. From the moment the guests arrived, they were greeted by valet attendants, followed by a Paula Le Duc Fine Catering staff with their famous out-of-this-world minted ice tea. Imagine strolling through a lovely rose garden with minted ice tea on a warm summer day, before being greeted by smiling ushers to show you to your seats for the ceremony. The ceremony began precisely at the invitation-stated start time, which I find to be extremely important in respect to all of your guests who made the effort to arrive early or on time. After witnessing a heartfelt ceremony, guests took another stroll to the adjacent 'Secret Garden', where they were greeted with delicious hors d'oeurves from Paula Le Duc Fine Catering, which included Pecking Duck Mini Tacos, Buttermilk Fried Chicken Bites, and Ahi Tuna Cones, amongst other delicacies. Several vignettes were designed by Leslie and Gloria Wong where guests got to peer into the lifestyle of Leslie and Jeffrey, along with special childhood memories and meaningful travels.
Dinner was served under an arbor filled with twinkle lights and vines, with romantic, flickering candles hanging above the head table where Leslie and Jeffrey enjoyed an evening of laughter, extraordinary food, and great music with those that matter to them most. The party continued after dinner, where guests danced under the starry sky, enjoyed cupcakes with varying shades of pink frosting, a wedding cake by Cake Coquette that was way too pretty to cut up, and a photobooth where the laughter never stopped.
Though it was hard to say good bye at the end of the evening, Leslie and Jeffrey were sent off in their vintage car with all the love and blessings in the world from their friends and family.
