Dani & Kailas: Laurel Canyon Wedding

Dani and Kailas had a wedding that truly reflected their passions. Kailas is a jack of many trades, and one of them is backyard and garden design. Their wedding took place at a private residence that was landscaped by the groom himself. Dani is a professional dancer and dance teacher, their wedding featured choreographed dances and an aerial dancer performance. Instead of a traditional sit down dinner, we planned heavy appetizer throughout the evening so that guests could maximize their mingling and dancing. It was truly an event to remember.

It was a blast getting ready with beautiful bride Danielle, and her hair and makeup team.


The groom, Kailas, and his brother Teuvo greeted their family and friends as guests began to arrive.

The guests entered the private residence down some cobblestone steps and then they were greeted with some sweet signage.

For the ceremony, guests sat in a semi-circle on the lower grass and looked up onto the deck turned altar at the wedding party.

The wedding party came down from the guest house, through the crowd, and up onto the deck.

Dani’s uncle was the best officiant! He made jokes, we laughed, we cried…

Then guests moved up to the top level of the property to mingle and dance while the wedding party took photos.


You know there was TONS of dancing at this dance instructor’s wedding!
