Elegant Gold + Black Wedding

Black, white and gold is one of our favorite color palettes because of its timelessness, and when we saw how impeccable these shades looked in Gretchen and Chadi’s wedding, we were obsessed! After a ceremony at Our Lady of Mt. Lebanon – St. Peter’s Cathedral, this Los Angeles couple stopped by Walt Disney Concert Hall for a photo session, then headed to Cicada Restaurant for a reception that will make your jaw drop! This classy venue was the perfect choice for Gretchen and Chadi’s elegant affair. The restaurant boasted a double grand staircase, sparkling chandelier and balcony lined in gold and black chevron décor. And the tabletops? Lush white florals and silver candelabras radiating candlelight served as beautiful centerpieces by Ixora Floral Studio. We love the black napkins and sophisticated gold chargers at each place setting, but we especially adore the smiles on the couple’s faces. Thanks to the talented Candice Benjamin Photography for capturing this fancy celebration!
