Imagine an oasis in the heart of Los Angeles, where lush gardens create their own version of Eden, beautiful swans swim in a tranquil lake, and the air is filled with a feeling of luxury and romance. At Hotel Bel-Air, this stunning utopia plays host to some of California’s most exquisite wedding ceremonies, where couples and their guests can celebrate their love in an unforgettable setting.
A fairy tale ambiance sets the stage for luxury weddings with enchanting grottos, stone fountains, charming bridges, and the iconic Swan Lake. Although indoor options are available in the Hotel Bel-Air ballroom, the property’s gardens are an ideal choice for any couple envisioning an outdoor ceremony. A staircase leading down to the garden makes for a lovely grand entrance as well.
When it comes to ceremony décor, Hotel Bel-Air is the perfect canvas for anyone’s style and taste. Minimal, all-white wedding décor is a magical contrast to the natural blues and greens of the gardens, while pops of richly colored floral designs can have a transformative effect. Hanging lanterns can bring out the tropical aspect of California’s warm weather, while crystal chandeliers allude to the quintessential luxury of Beverly Hills.
For Celio De Almeida and Edgardo Zamora’s ceremony, the two grooms – both, top event designers – let their artistic inspiration run wild with an over-the-top ceremony arch adorned with roses, and lanterns lighting the aisle. Various plush chairs and tufted sofas were used to seat guests, adding an extra touch of comfort and intimacy to the ceremony.
Saying “I do” is just the beginning of the Hotel Bel-Air wedding experience, as couples can choose to transition indoors for a wedding reception with a different design aesthetic or remain outside for an all-night wedding celebration under the stars.
