The Couple
Danielle BeVier, a chiropractor, and Karin Yurkovich, CEO of bridal shop Erin Cole Design, first crossed paths at a local marketing event, but it wasn’t instant love. Over the next year, they developed a friendship that eventually blossomed into a full-fledged romance. A year later, Danielle proposed over dinner at Yamashiro restaurant in Hollywood.

The Party
The couple opted for a fashionable affair. “It’s a good reflection of who we are as women,” says Karin, who had an industry advantage when it came to the gowns. “Being in the fashion industry, we are surrounded by style and elegance.” For the shoreside ceremony, Karin walked down the aisle in a striking Monique Lhuillier gown, while Danielle stunned in a Rivini dress with a Monique Lhuillier overskirt. After they declared “I do,” the party moved to a private home for dinner, dessert and an all-out great time, which began with the couple’s first dance to John Legend’s “All of Me.” Karin says, “We were told by our guests that it was the most fun they had ever had at a party or wedding.”

What They Learned
As a wedding industry pro, Karin knew how to plan. She first turned to Pinterest and Etsy for inspiration, but it was a wedding planning book from Danielle’s bridesmaid, Abby, that really helped with organization.

The Honeymoon
The couple enjoyed a 10-day honeymoon on the Amalfi Coast.
