Real Weddings: Yelena + Michael

Yelena and Michael were married at Malibou Lake Mountain Club in the rolling hills outside Los Angeles. They dubbed their wedding a “Jewkrainian” wedding – a blend of Jewish and Ukrainian traditions, the prettiest of these traditions in my opinion being their colorful chuppah, hand-painted by Michael’s mother. The beautiful florals by Mr. B’s included lisianthus, yellow spray roses, and lots of mixed greens in a color palette of yellows, greens, and white. A cute spin on the thumbprint guestbook, they let guests choose between leaving a fingerprint or using a tree-inspired stamp, adding variety to the print and sparing guests’ thumbs! Kaysha Weiner’s beautiful photos captured all the details from Yelena and Michael’s big day!
