Every inch of this Los Angeles wedding is dripping in gorgeous, old Hollywood style glamour from the rooftop venue to the perfect in every way Claire Pettibone gown. It doesn’t get much cooler, until you take in the art that is photography by Frame 36. We have a feeling the guests came for the gorgeous views and stayed for the love and the pretty cake. See more of the GLAMOUR in the gallery.
From Karen Koch…Katie and Paul wanted an old Hollywood style wedding and choosing the historic Oviatt Penthouse in downtown Los Angeles made for the perfect backdrop. The ceremony and reception were held in the evening on a bi-level terrace with a black-and-white checkered dance floor. The cocktail hour was in the penthouse, where guests could wander around looking at signed photos of Hollywood greats, as well as photos of the couple. Guests received cocktail napkins with the Mae West quote, “Too much of a good thing can be wonderful,” and the W.C. Fields quote, “I drink therefore I am.” To underscore the venue’s historical atmosphere, a deejay took guests on a musical journey with highlights from different decades. The couple’s first dance, choreographed by their Arthur Murray instructor, was to Dean Martin’s “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head.”
