Fall 2017 Cover.jpg

The wedding of Branden Hampton and Stephanie Perez planned by Wife of the Party was nothing short of magical. The festivities began at a location steeped in Los Angeles history. Completed in 1928, Greystone Mansion, also known as Doheny Manions, is a 55 room Tudor style former home situated on 16 acres of premium Southern California land. The architect, Wallace Neff, took much of his inspiration for Greystone Mansion from Petit Trianon in Paris. Petit Trianon was the place Marie Antoinette felt most at home, it was her escape from the constraints of palace life, it was her "happy place". It is also absolutely gorgeous. Mr. Neff and Edward "Ned" Doheny, Jr, the original owner, had good taste.

Greystone Mansion was privately owned until 1965 when the then owner declared he was going to subdivide the property and demolish the mansion. The City of Beverly Hills purchased it in 1965 and in 1971 it became a city park. In 1976 the mansion was added to the National Register of Historic Places and has been used in many movies and TV shows. 

Stepping onto the grounds at Greystone you may feel you have been transported to one of those movies or the grounds of Versailles. There are lush gardens, a reflection pool, an historic courtyard, and room after beautiful room. The bride and groom said their vows in the formal garden complete with a classic and stately water fountain as their backdrop.

After dinner guests made their way down to the third location of the day...the glamorous Kensington Ballroom. Here we used many of our lounge pieces to create a modern look.
