Romantic Wedding at The Loft on Pine

Every now and then I come across a Bride & Groom that set my wedding-loving heart on fire, that make me blush ten shades of pink… and this duo, is no exception m’dears. From their impeccable style—slightly boho vintage served with a side of elegance, to their ridiculously captivating love for one another, I couldn’t help but pack their wedding feature with mostly charming portraits of them, snapped by none other than The Youngrens. You can crush on it all with me here in the gallery.

From The Bride And Groom…Adam and Kim met through mutual friends at a birthday party in Palm Springs over 6 years ago. Kim’s girlfriend told her ahead of time that she had a guy for her who’d be there that weekend. Kim didn’t get too excited because her friend had a pretty bad track record of these so-called ‘awesome guys she just had to meet’! But…when Kim and Adam met, it was to her surprise, an immediate connection. Kim thought he was super outgoing, funny, and charming. Adam thought she was sweet. And HOT, of course! They ended up hitting it off and spending time talking the whole weekend. 5 years later Adam popped the question on the Santa Monica Pier. Kim had no idea it was coming and Adam could hardly contain himself the week before. Adam even planned for their best friends to secretly photograph the special moment. Priceless!

Eight months later on August 16th, 2014, Adam and Kim tied the knot at a drop dead gorgeous venue called The Loft on Pine in Long Beach, CA. After a few weeks of searching for a venue Kim and Adam couldn’t find anything that felt like “them”. The moment Kim walked up the stairs to where the ceremony/reception take place at The Loft on Pine, she could NOT believe her eyes. Adam turned and saw Kim’s face as she took it all in. They both knew at that moment, this was IT. The high ceilings, the wood beams, the lightening was PERFECT. They were so pumped!

The wedding colors were champagne gold, blush and ivory. Kim and Adam chose these soft whimsical colors to balance the darker tones of the wood floor and brick walls of the venue. They really wanted all the details to reflect their personalities. Kim is soft and sweet and Adam is a little loud and funny. Everything from the casual look of the groomsmen in mismatching ties to Adam’s maroonish tux coat to the bridesmaids blush pink chiffon dresses to all the little details of Kim’s jewelry and dress really let everyone show off who they are. And Bloomin’ Bride Designs took everything to another level with all the flowers. The venue looked amazing before, but after Kelsie did her magic, it looked STUNNING.

There were a few special touches Adam and Kim wanted to incorporate into the ceremony and reception. During the ceremony, Adam and Kim took communion together as husband and wife for the first time. It was a super special moment for them and the perfect way to kick off marriage. Unbeknownst to Kim, at the end of the ceremony, right before they were pronounced husband and wife, Adam pulled out his cellphone, stopped everything, and snapped a wedding selfie with all the guests in the background. It was the best unplanned detail! Everyone laughed and that (their laughter) was the detail Adam cared about the most. It was SO much fun.

The most “Adam & Kim” detail in the reception was the Boba Bar. If you know Adam and Kim you know they LOVE boba. The owner of their favorite Boba Tea shop came in and setup a Boba Bar for them and all their guests to enjoy. It was a hit! In addition, instead of the traditional buffet or plated meal, Adam and Kim had their caterers setup food stations. It was fun, casual and really got people up and moving and interacting with each other. It was the perfect less-common way to do wedding food and it was awesome! And did we mention they had pie? Yup… no wedding cake. Just pie.

Adam and Kim’s most vivid and favorite memory from the wedding day was the ‘first look’. It was so emotional, intimate and raw. All the emotions and planning leading up to the big day came out in this reveal. When Adam turned around to see his bride, his smile was huge and eyes glistening. They hugged and cried and prayed together before committing their lives to each other. It was a moment they will never forget!

Our wedding favor was the Photobooth from MYphotoboothLA (myphotoboothla.com) The guests raved about how much fun they had in the booth and all of the prop choices were hilarious! Each guest took home a customized photo strip to remember the night by. We had a booth setup during the reception, as well as the cocktail hour. It was a blast!

Hands down, our venue, our photographers, our coordinator, and our family and friends made this a day we will never forget! It was perfect.

Oh, and favorite photos? Try, all of them. That’s what happens when you hire The Youngrens. :D

From the beautiful Bride…Our cake topper was a significant and sentimental decoration to the two of us. The Lladro figurine was passed down from Zach’s grandmother. Sadly she passed away shortly after we got engaged. It was very special to have a part of her there with us on our wedding day!

From the Bride and Groom… When we began planning our wedding, we had to consider the fact that we wanted to have a gorgeous and intimate wedding while still being on a pretty tight budget. The thought of a DIY wedding of sorts was daunting at first, however we figured out how to be resourceful and were aided by the talent and generosity of friends and family.

We both agreed that our favorite parts of the day were the moments we had between just the two of us. Our first look was incredible (thanks Josh and Meg!), we would absolutely recommend it for anyone who is on the fence about it- it was an intimate and joyful time in which we got to get excited together for the rest of the day to come. Our other favorite moment was during the reception when we got to sit back and enjoy the company of our family and closest friends who were all there to celebrate our marriage.

Some advice to those of you who are planning right now: those moments and the vows you make that day are what end up being the most important parts of the whole event. Keep it simple, focus on what is most important to you, and know that no matter how stressful it can get, at the end of that day you’ll be married and that is what matters!
