Soolip Wedding

I've been looking forward to attending the Soolip Wedding Event for a month and I'm happy to report it did not disappoint. Wanda Wen, co-founder of Soolip is inspirational entrepreneur; she started with a passion for paper and $50,000 back in 1995. Now her 'paper' business has expanded to three boutiques on Melrose Avenue and SF famed lifestyle store Gumps.

Another reason I've been desperate to go was because the event was held at Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles. And what a gorgeous location! The high ceiling and columns were impressive and the adjacent courtyard was quaint and cozy. For brides looking for something different, this location will not disappoint. I think the rental fee for a Saturday night starts at $16,500 ~ not too bad especially if you can bring in your own caterer and alcohol. Here are a few pictures from yesterday.

My favorite for the day...
Notable mentions: we also enjoyed immensely the mini-cupcakes from Vanilla Bake Shop, cake bites by NancyKay's Confections, and delicious appetizers from Creme de la Creme and Food Art.
