Okay, I have to spill a guilty secret. I was “this” close to hijacking these two wedding dresses for my own, after seeing Bora stun in them. If only I was getting married again… swoon! Simply breathtaking! Bora is a designer for Tory Burch so it makes sense that her wedding would be so absolutely stunning! See her engagement session here.
Bora shares, “My love of design, decor, interiors, fashion.. i wanted it to be a mix of classic & modern with lots of greenery. Instead of how a “wedding” should be with color themes- i wanted it to be “how I would decorate my home” or a “dinner party”. Romantic, classic, a bit quirky with all my favorite things- topiaries, blue & white Chinoiserie vases, black & white checkered floors, chandeliers, candelabras and I definitely wanted long rectangular tables. I also had my ‘Olympia Le Tan’ book clutch for the wedding- as something blue, which I loved!”
“I wanted all the guys to wear a colorful striped Happy Sock. It’s the grooms favorite thing- always wears one of those Happy Socks so I thought it would be cute to have all the groomsmen and my nephew, the ringboy to wear them!”
“My friend, Patty helped paint the map and wreath/garlands for my invitation. I knew I wanted it to be watercolor, organic looking, and lots of green. From that I created the watercolor menu. My cousin was generous enough to print them all for me at his print shop in NYC.
I felt The London was such a modern space, so i wanted to balance it with soft, vintage colored flowers in organic shapes, gold accents and a chandelier.”
“I wanted it to feel classic but with a little twist- a little ‘Alice in Wonderland’ like- with the gold chairs, black & white checkerboard dance floors, giant topiaries, with a crystal chandelier centering the dance floor. I thought the bistro lights and candelabras will give it more of a soft, romantic feel (instead of harsh spotlights or colored lights) with the view of Hollywood from the rooftop.”
“I always knew I would have a giant monogram topiary at my wedding… I wanted it more giant but it took much longer and it was much heavier than expected so that was as large as I could go. It took weeks and many trips to downtown LA but I thought it was successful at the end.”
