Montage Beverly Hills, Beverly Hills, California

Analuz and Paul’s Santa Monica wedding ceremony was held at the beautiful St. Monica Catholic Community church, where Analuz attended high school. It has been her parish ever since her school days, and choosing it for her wedding was one of the easiest decisions she made, she said. The gorgeous interior certainly provided a colorful, majestic backdrop for the ceremony photos.

After the ceremony, everyone headed into Beverly Hills for a reception at the Montage resort. “We felt that it was the venue that best matched our taste, and their level of service was beyond anything we had experienced,” Analuz said. “The Montage made our experience one that we will never forget.”

And one thing her wedding guests will never forget is the surprise samba dance. Dressed in rhinestones and feathers and smiling ear to ear, a small dance troupe performed at the start of the reception, with Analuz joining them and shaking it like a pro. “I love dancing and picked up dancing samba as a hobby a few years ago,” she said. “There were no lessons or rehearsal, just an impromptu moment that felt right.”
