Happy Monday! Today’s wedding is a fun one, friends. Molly + Asher tied the knot at a gorgeous, old Los Angeles mansion with a celebration that was filled with chic, European-inspired design elements and a carefree summer dinner party vibe. Some very special people were involved with Molly + Asher’s wedding, ensuring it would be memorable and one-of-a-kind…but don’t worry, we won’t ruin the surprise for you. It’s just too good! Molly has a few words to share with us about the day, then it’s right to the lovely photos by Heather Kincaid, which you definitely won’t want to miss…
As a stylist, I had done a lot of photo shoots at the Paramour Mansion and felt very connected to the space. I knew that when the day came for me to get married it would only feel right to do it there. Boy was I right! I wanted the reception to feel easy and casual with a chic European edge, and my wedding planner, Sharlene Griffith, really stayed true to that vision. Whoa Nelly Catering did an amazing job with the food, and the wine from Hess vineyards superseded my expectations. I didn’t want any part of the evening to be uptight. The goal was for people to feel like they could kick off their shoes and run through the grass if they wanted to.
I grew up with Mary Kate and Ashley. They are very close friends of mine and have been for 15 years. The minute I got engaged they said they would love to design and gift me my gown. There is no one I would rather have done it than those girls. Their taste is impeccable and I really trust them. Their team was so incredible and patient with me. They were always so calming and made the process even more enjoyable. Designing my gown with them was the most exciting and emotional experience of my life and I will never forget what they did for me, I will hold it in my heart forever.
Mild (ok, major!) case of dress envy. Molly made such a stunning bride!
And how cute are she and Asher together? Love how he is looking at her in the photo below. :)
Gorgeous ladies! We just adore all those dresses.
And how incredible is Molly’s lace veil? That beauty was also designed by Mary Kate + Ashley of The Row.
For the processional, Molly + Asher’s friend Jenna Caine sang Case of You by Joni Mitchell.
I cried all the way down the aisle because I was so overwhelmed with all the love around me. It was so personal. We wrote our own vows and both cried while exchanging them. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
Such pretty, romantic tablescape details!
During dinner, Molly’s godmother, Stevie Nicks, gave a toast and then a surprise performance of Fleetwood Mac’s Landslide. Talk about a magical way for the night to unfold!!!
Such a stunning wedding! Congratulations, again, Molly + Asher – and thanks so much for sharing your day with us!
