Modern Luxury Brides California hosted an evening of "wedded bliss" at the gorgeous Noor Pasadena—the destination for flawless weddings and events in historic downtown Pasadena. Bridal industry professionals networked and sipped on signature White Wedding cocktails made of vodka, agave nectar, fresh lime and green seedless grapes. Guests nibbled on hors d'oeuvres such as crispy coconut shrimp, mac & cheese bites, mini crab cakes, parmesan French fry cones and Kobe beef sliders. A scrumptious buffet included Portobello mushroom ravioli topped with grilled asparagus, Caesar salad and freshly baked artisan breads. Inside the Sofia Ballroom that can accommodate more than 300 guests, Magnolia Bakery treated guests to sweet wedding cupcakes and introduced guests to its custom baked goods including tiered wedding cakes and bridal dessert tables. Wedding experts also got a peak at the adjacent Ella Ballroom and its Art Deco inspired décor. Music was provided by Once Upon A Dream harpist Kelly Axen and DJ tunes by Scratch Music Group. Bohemia Dance Company entertained everyone with a dance medley across various time periods and cultures. The evening ended on a high note with a strolling Champagne Diva, who literally wore a ball gown dress that held more than a hundred self-serve flutes of Champagne. Each guest took home a gift bag that included Brides CA and the Bed, Bath & Beyond "howbook" to create the perfect registry.
