Today Stephanie and Johnny’s refined Kohl Mansion wedding is featured on Borrowed & Blue! What started as friendship for this darling couple quickly turned to romance and it was clear these two were living their own fairy tale. On their wedding day, 200 guests gathered to witness an Egyptian Coptic ceremony at Johnny’s family church where they followed the orthodox rituals, including donning crowns and capes. A Black tie reception followed at Kohl Mansion in Burlingame, CA – a 100-year-old estate which at one time was the site of lavish parties for the “smart set.” Stephanie had wanted a romantic, intimate and fun reception. The neutral palette was offset by bright pops of fuchsia. Twinkle lighting over the patio, candle-lit fireplaces, mantels and tables set an intimate atmosphere, despite the large guest count. A show stopper (besides the bride of course) was the cake display, taking advantage of light shining through the large windows that back lit a beautiful textured linen draped on the dark wood table to highlight a buttercream cake with olive branch details.
