Bridal Sign Up

Maya Hazen & Michael Manshel

April 27, 2013 | La Villa Contenta, Private Estate, Malibu

Pastries By Edie in Canoga Park created a two-tiered white cake confection, accented with dusty rose-colored flowers.

Maya chose a gown by Francesca Miranda; Michael opted for a sleek Dolce & Gabbana tux.

Maya and Michael’s dogs, Stella and Cricket, joined the celebration.

Colorful small bites were provided by chef Marcos Arana
of L.A.-based Sportsmen’s Lodge.

Menus were crafted by Paper Source.

An expansive view of the Pacific from a private Malibu estate provided a stunning backdrop for Maya and Michael’s big day.

THE COUPLE
Maya and Michael were introduced through a fitness trainer. “He finally asked me out, but it took two years of staring at each other and not speaking more than two words,” admits Maya.
THE DETAILS
The couple opted for a romantic feel with a mostly white palette and shades of rose and gold.
THE PARTY
Maya changed into Brian Atwood heels and a shortened Sue Wong dress for the afterparty. DJ Max Chipchase joined a percussionist, electric violinist and go-go dancers to keep the Gatsby-esque affair going post-reception.
