It was around 2:30 this afternoon when we walked into the beautiful Vibiana, located at the center of downtown Los Angeles. After the Northridge earthquake and subsequent restoration, The Cathedral of St. Vibiana became simply The Vibiana. Extended family came first, to get group pictures taken with the bride and groom.
The actual ceremony started at 4:00 with Ariana playing Bach cello suites and concluded an hour later with the pastor introducing, for the first time, Mr. and Mrs. Hechanova. Then, there was a cocktail hour with an open soda bar and passed hors d’oeuvres. Everyone went back inside for dinner, and the spotlight entree was the baked salmon, caught by Tina and Jonathan.
We all enjoyed the beautiful and elegant event.
Congratulations, Jon and Tina!
