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.

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 couple opted for a romantic feel with a mostly white palette and shades of rose and gold.
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.
