Classic Romantic LA Wedding

Today I’m sharing this romantic and chic LA Jewish wedding from Love Light Images. I love all the chic, elegant, and timeless details. How stunning is the bride’s custom gown? Those delicate lace sleeves are too lovely!

The inspiration for our wedding was the California Club. The venue was chosen before everything else because Adam is a member and always dreamed of getting married there, so we let it guide our design decisions. We learned a lot about the history of the California Club throughout the wedding planning, and wanted the wedding to blend in with the elegant ambiance.

We chose long tables because it promoted conversation and allowed us to use tall candelabras (which I’d fallen in love with at a prior event), and we chose a live band because we wanted the reception to be a party above all else (that’s the reason I had a “short” dress, too! No getting stepped on for me). We wanted our wedding to set a tone for who we’re going to be as a family, and if we came across as fun-loving, elegant, and respectful, then mission accomplished.

Inspired by This Tropical Wedding Shoot

When we started brainstorming for this shoot for Rue Magazine, we knew we wanted to create an event that captured the essence of summer.  Gather Events created a design that was rich with lush florals and a playful yet elegant color palette that made our vision come to life!  We decided that the Shangri-La Hotel in Santa Monica would be the perfect setting with its pool deck brimming with tropical greenery and hints of an exotic vacation.  One of our favorite trends happening right now is the hot pink and purple pops of Bougainvillea and Jacaranda so we had Aly Morford from The Vine’s Leaf create a showstopping ceremony altar overflowing with both.  The intimate ceremony space was filled with earthy wooden and glass vessels and woven baskets from Found Rentals while the vintage wire chairs were accented with tropical fanning leaves to add a pop of greenery.  Vibrant floral rugs and ikat patterned pillows from Lulu and Georgia were offset by lovely vintage furniture pieces throughout.  Gather described the romantic lounge cabana set off to the side as a “respite from the summer sun and a perfect nook for the love birds to sneak in a kiss”.  Moving to the reception, the focus of the dinner table was an overgrown floral centerpiece conveying summer’s freshness and abundance complete with real grapefruit accents!  On the menu, the food and drinks are as colorful and refreshing as the florals, with an added hint of Mediterranean spice. Contemporary Catering created a delicious assortment with everything from a honey glazed laughing bird shrimp as the amuse bouche to a Lavender Berry Sparkler specialty cocktail with One Hope Wedding’s Sparkling Wine.  The paper goods, by Wiley Valentine, incorporated the ikat print to tie everything together as well as a dip-dyed napkin with the menu printed directly on to serve as a keepsake for guests.  Gather Event’s advice for a summer wedding?  “Create a relaxed, carefree vibe to keep your guests comfortable, incorporate a seasonal menu to keep things fresh and delicious, and add a healthy dose of eye-popping hues to keep it lively.  Turn up the color, it’s time for summer!”

Be Prepared to Be Inspired…

Idaho Woodsy Wedding

Idaho Woodsy Wedding

This Idaho wedding from Sara K Byrne Photography makes us feel a bit warm and fuzzy inside. Perhaps it’s the cozy wedding venue, the relaxed feel of the mismatched bridesmaids’ dresses, or reception perfectly tailored to suit the newlyweds. Keep an eye out for some amazing bouquets and gorgeous paper goods designed bythe groom!

From the bride, Katie: Matt and I both appreciate classy, yet understated style. We love the natural beauty of the outdoors and believed there could be no better inspiration for our wedding day. With that in mind, we chose from styles that created a soft look and a welcoming environment. Vintage décor, DIY projects galore, and numerous design projects meant we had a wedding that expressed US. I would describe our wedding day as vintage, rustic, woodsy, feminine, handmade, and cozy, with a color scheme of dusty rose, blush pink, mauve, light grey, navy blue, and caramel brown.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? If your friends and family members offer their assistance don’t be afraid to delegate tasks. While you’ve imagined this day and all its details for a lifetime only one thing matters – You’re marrying your best friend & nothing can take away from that moment.

From the photographer, SaraMatt and Katie came to gorgeous McCall, Idaho for their wedding day. The River Lodge at Blackhawk was their choice of venue, the unfinished interior matched their style completely! We spend the day exploring the beautiful meadows and fields near the property. Their graphic design background was seen in many details, from the itineraries to the Instagram challenge poster! We loved the wardrobe that Katie picked out for the wedding party, from the non-matching bridesmaids’ dresses to the jeans/suspenders look for the groomsmen. Matt went with J. Crew for the majority of his wardrobe. The rustic/vintage feel of this wedding perfectly fit McCall’s vibe.

Modern Americana wedding inspiration

We’re all about taking a classic theme and making it fresh. Keeps us on our toes. Zoom Theory Photography’s vision with this shoot was to create a modern twist on an Americana ranch theme, set in the gorgeous canyons of Malibu, Californ-I-A. It’s a little bit country, a little bit garden party, and a whole lotta pretty.
