The love story of actor Steven Yeun and professional photographer Joana Pak started back in 2009 in Chicago. The duo couldn’t wait to tie the knot on a picturesque Los Angeles hilltop estate in 2016. They wanted it to be a party that would integrate elements of their shared Korean heritage, and that’s exactly how things went!
The flower-filled affair kicked off at a stylish yet quirky Old Hollywood-style villa, the Paramour Estate. The two wore Korean-inspired attire and offered Korean-American fusion food, including a late-night snack of celebration noodles. This wedding made East and West fusion look like a piece of cake!
Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger
Comedic actor Chris Pratt wedded the author and daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Katherine Schwarzenegger, in a stunning Californian ceremony in the summer of 2019. The duo exchanged rings in an intimate ceremony at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito. This venue is tucked away in the lush highlands of Santa Barbara and encircled by gorgeous views of the Channel Islands and the Pacific Ocean.
It offers a grand array of scenic spots to hold a special ceremony. Must-see spectacles include the immaculate upper lawn, a pristine lower garden, a wine cellar, and various installations on the ranch. (Did you know? John F. Kennedy and Jaqueline Kennedy selected this spot for their honeymoon).
Miguel Jontel Pimentel and Nazanin Mandi
Long-time childhood sweethearts singer Miguel and model Nazanin Mandi married in 2018 after sharing over ten years together. The marriage was held at Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Simi Valley, Los Angeles. Lodged in the Santa Susana Mountains and only half an hour's drive from LA, this exceptional venue includes an enchanting main villa with splendid Spanish architecture and hosts a multitude of outdoor spaces.
Adorably romantic accommodations, shady groves of olive trees, sparkling fountains, and breathtaking canyon views can be enjoyed here. The event was attended by 260 loved ones, who got treated to an In-N-Out burger truck, ensuring everyone finished the night with a bellyful.
Ivy Getty and Tobias Engel
The heiress Ivy Getty, the great-granddaughter of billionaire oil magnate J. Paul Getty, wedded Tobias Engel, a photographer, in a perfect matrimony held in San Francisco's City Hall, in the fall of 2021. It is well known that the town hall in SF is an absolute treasure that celebrates and embodies the American golden age of the late 1800s.
With bronze-coated gates and staircases, it's tough to match the elegance of this venue. The bride's dress was an absolute jaw-dropper, which featured four coatings and actual fragments of a shattered mirror — a totally vintage masterpiece of a dress to match their 1960s wedding theme.
Lily Aldrige and Caleb Followill
Victoria's Secret model Lily Aldrige's world got rocked when she married the Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill in the spring of 2011. The two exchanged rings at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California. The ranch's story starts in old California, where nostalgia, romance, and legend entangle.
With 550 acres and 16-plus miles of hiking tracks through jasmine, lavender, orange blossoms, and eucalyptus stowed between the cliffs and ocean, San Ysidro Ranch is an oasis of natural beauty, peace, and quiet. It's no wonder that historical figures such as Audrey Hepburn, Winston Churchill, and JFK plus Jackie spent some time here for either a wedding or a honeymoon back in their days.
