Los Angeles, California
Amber Stevens married Andrew West on December 6, 2014. The wedding took place at Carondelet House near downtown Los Angeles.
The bride walked down the aisle on the arm of her father, radio and TV host Shadoe Stevens. She wore a strapless tiered lace wedding dress by CB Couture and jewelry by Greene and Co. The groom wore a J. Crew tux.
The vows took place in front of an exposed brick wall underneath a chandelier. The couple exchanged rings by XIV Karats during the ceremony.
The winter wedding was planned by Carly Rae Design and featured a holiday Vanity Fair theme. Decor included Christmas trees, wreaths and garlands.
The flowers, by Fleur de Rye, had deep red roses, ranunculus, and scabiosa blooms. Table number assignments were written on red ribbons and tied to ornaments.
Dinner was served at long tables with metallic linens. The menu, by Tres LA, included chopped salad, kale Caesar salad, braised short ribs, seafood paella, butternut squash ravioli, roasted winter vegetables, and chive pommes puree. The gold brushed wedding cake was made by Cake and Art and was vanilla with raspberry jam filling.
Dart DJs spun the music for the evening and mid-reception, the bride and her dad twirled parasols and danced with guests in a New Orleans style second line with live jazz music.
The newlyweds honeymooned in the Dominican Republic.
