Celebrate: An International Affair

It’s officially summer! And everyone knows that summer is wedding season!

However… we don’t just plan and coordinate weddings. At CLD, we do events of all types! And on May 31, we were able to coordinate our first Bat Mitzvah at Smog Shoppe in Culver City.

This celebration was in honor of the amazing Olivia, who is one accomplished young lady. Olivia and her amazing mom, Abby, put their heads together to design a beautiful event with an international theme. This family has traveled all of the world and this event was a perfect opportunity to showcase their love of travel.

Smog Shoppe provided the perfect background for the ceremony with their wall of succulents and plants and eclectic decor. At the end of the ceremony, guests were able to mingle in the courtyard over appetizers and cocktails. A short while later, we were able to lift the Shoppe’s garage doors and welcome guests indoors for dinner, a special candle lighting ceremony, and dancing!

Olivia and Abby’s international theme continued for dinner, with each table being named for a different city instead of a table number! The children had a long running table through the middle of the floor, awesomely decorated with international candies and trinkets. Schaeffer’s Genuine Foods provided not one, but two buffets: one themed for children, featuring a soft pretzel tower, sliders, mini-mac-and-cheeses, while the adult buffet featured succulent short ribs and salmon. We did notice, however, that majority of the adults migrated over to the kids buffet for some delicious nibbles. Adults and kids alike were also entertained with a Photo Booth, airbrush tattoos and a wax-hand station!

Thanks to this wonderful family for letting Christina Logan Design be a part of a beautiful day!
