Keiko and Kotaro planned a vibrant Cielo Farms wedding celebration, but due to visa issues, the bride was denied entry into the United States. Determined to celebrate their love and ensure their guests enjoyed the night, Keiko and Kotaro tied the knot in a virtual ceremony. Keiko and Kotaro were very excited to invite their guests to their destination wedding in Malibu, CA. They love Southern California and from the moment they stepped foot at Cielo Farms, they knew it was where they wanted to get married. They wanted to treat their guests who were traveling so far to an incredible experience that they would never forget. From the welcome gifts waiting for them in their hotel rooms, to the beautiful decor, to the delicious food and drinks – every little detail was chosen with careful consideration and love. Keiko was immediately drawn to bright playful colors but still wanted the atmosphere to feel very elegant and luxurious.
Star Hansen Events decided on a color palette of pinks, yellows, with pops of teal and beautiful mixed metallics for that hint of glamour. The decor was romantic and feminine and flowers were abundant. Citrus fruits were incorporated because they remind Keiko and Kotaro of California and this added such freshness to this summer wedding. On the guest dining tables were a beautiful mix of delicate dishes, handmade watercolor menus, and teal placards for a fun pop of color. Guest dined on delicious food and sipped “Cielo Sunrise” cocktails while enjoying music under the stars. It truly was a magical night.
