We are thrilled to share that our historic venue, Carondelet House has been featured on Green Wedding Shoes for this stunning wedding that featured gorgeous floral swings!

“A venue built as an Italian villa in the 1920’s, floating floral swings at the alter and reception, berry + gold toned details, a dog taking a bite out of the cake…didn’t see that last one coming? Well, it just happens to be one of the bride’s favorite details from this elegant + whimsical wedding! (Trust us, it’s SUPER cute.) Mallory + Beau planned their special day at Carondelet House in Los Angeles with the help of Orange Blossom Special Events, who made the couple’s vision come to life!

Mallory tells us, ‘Both of us had our “must-have” priorities. My husband is originally from the East Coast, so he likes elegant weddings and insisted on wearing a tuxedo and having a band. I wanted bold florals and whimsical touches (such as our dog making an appearance on the cake), and we both wanted killer food. We were relaxed about everything!'” – via Green Wedding Shoes
