Kathy Nenneker, Editor in Chief  Los Angeles Weddings, tells WPN California brides are fashionable and body conscious wanting their red carpet moment.  This bride is not tradition bound.  You can hear more with Kathy by clicking here.  Los Angeles Weddings magazine is a leading bridal publication. 

Seneca Moss, contributing style editor Los Angeles Weddings magazine and former fashion editor of Cosmopolitan and InStyle magazines, tells us how this celebrity based area has brides that are glamorous, feminine and natural.  This bride takes risks.  She wants star treatment and she can get it.  The best stylists are available. She discusses trends in gowns.  Are you considering switching out of your wedding gown into a shorter, more fun dress?  What's the bridal party wearing?  The LA bride wants to look different.  It's all about the WOW factor. 

Join us as we head to Hollywood.  Destination: Warner Brothers Studios.  Hillary Harris, Director of Special Events, takes us on a personal tour like no other.  You love the movies, the musicals, the history.  You have the vision that takes you to a venue that will guarantee a memorable experience.  Join us on the backlots as we explore different locations and themes.  Weddings and social events are created by a professional team that handle the logistics, art direction and technical support.  The set lighting and phenomenal cuisine are the same used for premieres, television shows and features.  This interview is full of great ceremony and reception ideas.  At Warner Brothers the Hollywood bride is anyone in the United States, in the world, and that means YOU.  You're the star at this customized destination wedding. 

Who will buy my beautiful flowers?  Musicals on the mind.  Remember this song from Oliver?  Mark Held, owner of Mark's Garden in Sherman Oaks,  was recently named LA's best by Los Angeles Magazine.  Mark is the celebrated floral designer of the Academy Awards Governors Ball (for the past 13 years), Golden Globes and celebrity weddings including:  Avril Lavigne, Pink, Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Simpson.  The lovely weather and California sunshine allows for some beautiful outdoor weddings.  Find out how Mark got started in the business, trends specific to California, hot colors, original looks, bouquet choices and some great advice.

Last stop:  Lehr and Black Invitationers.  Ellen Black and Sol Lehr, brother and sister co-owners/creative forces, have taken over the company from their mother, Marcia Lehr.  Marcia Lehr was the very first to make high end, custom invitations for the Who's Who of Hollywood in the 1970's and 1980's (Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, Danny Kaye, Dean Martin, The Hiltons, The Spellings were just a few of her clients).  Ellen Black discusses the personalization of invitations.  Invitations today reflect the hip and trendy couple.  Los Angeles is about the beach, the mountains, Napa Valley.  How can you best represent yourself on the ever important invitation? Color?  Texture?  Fabric?  Ellen discussed Save the Date cards that can be playful and more casual incorporating photos and stories.  Lehr and Black one-of-a-kind creations are ornate, creative and highly personal.
