An Emmy-winning Dream Team Gets Hitched in Style!

“Hello Hollywood” could be a phrase best used to describe the glamorous wedding of Emmy-winning, Los Angeles-based, TV producing duo Sarah Skibitzke-Donnell and Bryan Donnell. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house as Sarah and Bryan walked down the isle to the classic love song “At Last” at the Church of Angels in Pasadena, California, on December 23rd of last year. The pair had met six years earlier while Sarah was producing a TV show, she needed to hire a cinematographer and Bryan stopped by her office to drop off his resume. Needless to say he got the job…and the girl!

While the wedding took place in California, when the Seattle-born bride returned home she decided to have a custom dress created by renowned fashion designer Luly Yang. “I loved the idea of having a couture dress from my hometown of Seattle.  To say that I was wearing an exclusive Seattle designer and in a dress that no one else had really added to the ‘fun’ element of getting married and wearing a wedding dress, something I didn’t know I was initially looking for,” Sarah recently told me. Her custom gown complimented her Moroccan-themed reception that included live drummers, a stunning Persian dancer and a veiled female DJ. The intimate wedding of 80 guests made for a festive celebration just days before Christmas, which had been a dream of Sarah’s as a little girl.

Congratulations to to the happy couple!
