After a year of dating and some chit-chat about marriage, Erica knew a proposal was around the corner so, like any Jewish girl with weddings on the brain, she always had her nails done, ready to go. But like any Jewish boy who wants to surprise his lady, Adi never asked when she thought he would! After convincing Erica to go to ahem, a “party” at the SLS Hotel in Los Angeles, she went to meet their friends at the “pre-party” room where Adi was standing and got down on one knee. She jumped up and down with that cute girly excitement you see in the movies and she asked him to do it again. Because, really, it’s a vision.
For her wedding day plans, Erica had the help of the amazing event coordinator, Mindy Weiss, and she didn’t let a thing pass by without her own personal Erica touch. Erica planned every detail to the T making sure that the weekend was everything she wanted it to be. And it was! The first time Erica and Adi saw each other dressed and ready was a magical, dream-like moment. The couple wrote their own vows and Adi’s dad married them, which really made the ceremony so personal and special.
It should be noted that Erica is a sweet bride who loves her sweets. After all, she is the owner of Sweet E’s Bake Shop in Los Angeles where anyone with a love for sugar and spice and everything nice would find their happy place! Naturally, the sweets table at Erica and Adi’s wedding was a display of the best of the best. Her amazing pearly six-level wedding cake, surprise groom’s cake which was a replica of the couple’s furry loves, and collection of yummies like cookie dough cake pops and chocolate dipped marshmallows all delighted guests at the confectionary centerpiece of the wedding reception.
Mazel tov, Erica and Adi!

From the Bride:
I grew up in Houston. So Jewish geography had Adi’s cousin from Houston make the connection and scheme up a plan to set us up. Got that? Adi’s cousin called me to place an “order”. At that time he happened to somehow get my permission to have his cousin Adi call me and needless to say an “order” was never placed. Adi and I were both burnt out after being set up on many dates, but because family was involved we had to meet. And so glad we did. An hour long phone call led to our first date and from then on we pretty much never left each other’s side.
