Chic Summer Downtown LA Wedding

There is something about LA weddings that I just love. They have a modern elegance with the right amount of urban style. This quintessential LA celebration, shot by Betsi Ewing Studio and Luke David, is classy and chic, with beautiful florals by Valerie Jurado Botanical Design, and a touch of whimsy with some of LA’s food trucks. Let’s kick off the week with some fun and this gallery has just that and more.

From Betsi Ewing StudioAdam and Beth both lived in New York City around the same time but perhaps only met on the subway. Beth believes Adam was probably the nice guy who helped her pick up her students’ papers on a windy subway platform. In the summer and fall of 2011, Adam and Beth were both led to Los Angeles.

Unbeknownst to them, Adam and Beth were both going to the same church, Pacific Crossroads Church (PCC), and living two blocks away from each other. In September of 2012, Adam felt compelled to join a community group through PCC and picked the one most convenient, two blocks away, lead by the Doctor sisters, Beth and Maria. So as the story goes, Adam arrived on Beth’s doorstep.

A little over a month later Beth and Adam were dating. They knew very early on in their relationship that they were meant to be together forever. On their one year anniversary, Adam surprised Beth with the greatest question ever, and asked her to marry him.

Beth enjoyed every minute planning the wedding during their seven month engagement. Producing high-impact events in her own line of work, she found herself with extraordinarily detailed itineraries for vendors and family alike, and a 30-tab spreadsheet. The groom was masterful at arranging the reception, music, transportation and hotel.

No LA wedding would be complete without LAPD ghettobirds (helicopters), a taco truck, and the groom laying down a sick DJ set.

Backyard Garden Wedding Inspiration

Like all northeasters, I’ve resigned myself to blankets and wool socks for the foreseeable future. But my daydreams and desires are still pinning for fresh fruit and delicate sundresses. This shoot, photographed by This Modern Romance, produced by Be Inspired PR, is fuel to my fire. Poppy & Plum Events created a backyard wedding wonderland and as I prep for snow, this gallery is where I will happily remain.

Whimsical

From Be Inspired PR… We teamed up with Vow To Be Chic to create a fashion-forward inspired wedding. We pulled multiple looks from their rent-able designer bridesmaid dresses to outfit our bridal party. Looking at nature created our inspiration and the perfect color palette for our backyard wedding shoot. Inspired by a collection of berry hues standing out against neutrals and soft grays, and using the garden as the perfect backdrop to our vintage table adored with whimsical flowers and carefully curated dish ware. We really liked the idea of incorporating a nice summery feel by adding blackberries to each place setting and mixing in some fun floral place settings to keep it light. Additionally, we used a watercolor look and unusual shape, hexagon, for the paper products which added a fun fresh look for our invitation suite.

Confetti-Filled LA Engagement Session

A year ago today I received a sparkly little number on my ring finger, so when I came upon this post, well, I may be a bit partial, but I got all giddy inside. Jenna Bechtholt snapped away as these newly engaged lovebirds celebrated with colorful confetti amid a chic city backdrop. Tis the season for all things wonderful so let’s grab another plate of cookies and dive into one seriously adorable gallery.

From Jenna Bechtholt Photography… Is there a better romantic backdrop than a perfect view of any major city’s skyline?! Not in my book!

Mace and Amos are such a playful and sweet couple, which is so clearly demonstrated in so many of their engagement photos! From rooftop dancing and lots of laughter to confetti tossing in a magenta tulle skirt, Amos and Mace’s urban engagement session is definitely one for the books! We decided to document this special time in their lives with an urban and stylish shoot in downtown Los Angeles. We mixed up the locations with first starting in a back alley and finishing on top of a parking garage with a panoramic city view as the sun was beginning to set. I adore pairing contrasting elements together which is why the juxtaposition of a grungy city vibe for a romantic and stylish occasion led to a really fun and unique outcome!
