Real Wedding Shenanigans: Adrian & Amber

Adrian and Amber chose to celebrate their love the best way they knew how. The couple wanted to have their wedding be as reflective of them as it could. While the SmogShoppe provided a unique and earthly venue, Adrian and Amber chose to add elements that would match this esthetic while also showing off their personal style.

For the ceremony, the bride and groom used a mix of bench and couch seating. Including tasteful decor options, the couple used a four-tone color palette which was comprised of blacks, deep purple, grey, and succulent green. White pumpkins, and floral centerpieces that were made up of these colors created the most beautiful decorative adornments. When it came time for the dinner, guests could tell that the bride and groom truly knew what would taste best. Two stations with the yummiest foods included: tacos, chips, rice and beans, while the other featured Huntington sliders, mac and cheese, and french fries. Adrian and Amber’s dream day was heartfelt, filled with laughter and tons of amazing food!

Real Wedding Shenanigans: Anna & Jackie

November 11, was a memorable day for Anna and Jackie as they wed at St. Denis Catholic Church. Following the ceremony, both of the couples families enjoyed tea and lunch at the groom's parents home. Reuniting with their guests, the wedding reception was held at Union Station in Los Angeles, California. Built originally in 1939, this station has been home to a number of people for decades. Its unique architecture and design, were perfect for Anna and Jackie's celebration of their big day. 

The color palette for the day included sage, white, ivory, and taupe. Filled with Fruitwood Chiavari chairs and Ivory cushions, the reception was breathtaking. Menus for this 10-Course Family Style meal, were accented with sage napkins, ribbon, and greenery. Unique elements to this wedding such as a personalized slideshow of the couple, was enjoyed by all. A beautiful day for all, we loved Anna and Jackie's exquisite wedding!
