Beauty blogger Chia Habte and Rapper-Comedian Tim Delaghetto wanted a Non-Traditional yet Classically Elegant Wedding in Sunny California that would incorporate their unique cultures and big personalities! The palm tree soaked Bel Air Bay Club was the perfect beach lined backdrop for this larger than life creative couple!

Chia Habte and Tim Delaghetto’s wedding design was a mix of classic aesthetics and bold choices. A white, cream and blush color palette mixed with pops of metallics alongside creative aspects that added a major wow factor to their fusion-focused nuptials.
Makeup is a serious business as you can see from Face It’s Sugar (Georgia’s) face. As a beauty blogger, it was crucial to Chia to have a makeup artist that understood skin type and personal makeup stylings. Chia’s loose and flowing updo was created by Alisha Jared Artistry.
Fun Facts: Chia is Canadian (Saskatchewan to be exact) and a cultural mix of Eritrean (Dad) and Salvadorian (Mom). Tim is Thai-American. Chia and Tim met in 2011 and have been dating long distance ever since.
Bridesmaid selfies all around! Chia’s bridesmaids were comprised of her sister and cousins who traveled from Canada to be apart of their big day.
Why should the bride be the only one with a fancy-ass robe?!
Chia originally had her vowes written on her phone but Tim then requested they both handwrite their vows so they can keep them forever. How sweet is he?!
When the groom is comedian-rapper on the MTV show Wild ‘N Out, you know the groomsmen are going to be a goofy bunch! Here they all are doing some “Groomin'”. Tim and his groomsmen wore tan, custom-made suits from Milo Andres.
My amazing team (Sebastian, Linda, Hayley and Lizzy (of Lizzy Liz Events) pow-wowing about the timeline.

Here is the review Chia and Tim left on The Knot:
“We had the pleasure of working with Holly Gray for our entire wedding planning process. We initially spoke with Holly on the phone and she was very bubbly and friendly! She didn’t pressure us into making a decision but rather encouraged us to talk to other planners to get a feel for what we wanted. Narrowing down a wedding planner can be difficult, so ultimately we chose Holly not just because her work looked and sounded impressive, but because of her personality.
She really clicked with us as a couple and we loved that about her. Because realistically whoever we chose would heavily be involved in our lives for the next year, so we wanted to make sure we had a great connection. After we locked down Holly, we jumped right into it! She had lots of recommendations for every aspect of a wedding; flowers, videographers, photographers, cake, music, makeup, hair, etc.
Holly accompanied us to our initial meetings with the vendors and spoke true to our vision. She always had our best interest in mind and made us feel comfortable every step of the way. Which is extremely important because this occasion should be done exactly the way you pictured it. There are hundreds of major and minor decisions to make, that it can be hard to feel confident in your choices. It was always nice to hear that we were on the right track and everything would be okay. On our actual wedding day, it was surreal to see everything come together. It was in this moment that we finally realized that the endless amount of e-mails and several months of planning was all worth it.
Holly was running around like crazy and making sure everything was in place and exactly how it should be. But in the same breath, she would suddenly appear right in front of us when we needed her. The day was so perfect and if there were any hiccups or mishaps, we didn’t notice a thing. That’s why you hire a wedding planner! There are no words to explain how incredible it was to have Holly leading us the entire way. She is an absolute gem and organized the most perfect day we could have ever imagined. It was a dream come true.”
