It was love at first site when this couple first met eyes…with a taxidermy goat at The Marvimon House. You’ll be surprised by how strange that doesn’t sound after you take a gander at the images photog Heidi Geldhauser captured of these creatures and this mag spread worthy bride and groom at this succulent laden soiree. From the leafy textural Holly Flora designs (complete with kale!), to the vintage books, the scattered antlers (and shark teeth!), we promise you’ll wanna get down with these party animals. You don’t have to take our word for it: get those pearly whites ready to devour the whole shindig.
From the Bride… We started our venue search online and found a funky little venue that complemented both our styles — it was a small loft in downtown LA, complete with exposed brick walls, a succulent garden and a goat head hanging on the wall! We knew it was the perfect place, and needless to say, The Marvimon was the first and only venue we saw. The style of our wedding was influenced by the venue. We told the florist we wanted a vintage, eclectic vibe with succulents and taxidermy. Holly knew exactly what we wanted — there were antlers, vintage books, succulents, kale, sharks’ teeth, geodes, vintage apothecary items and even a little taxidermy crocodile head (that sat at our table of course!). We had a quick ceremony, ate great food, then partied the night away. And at the end of the night we filled our drunken bellies with street-style tacos! It was the best night ever, and we couldn’t have asked for more.
