Happy Wedding Wednesday!
Today, we are so excited to share with you one of our favorite weddings of 2016. From the moment I met Marisa & Jason, I fell in love with their sweet disposition and chill, yet excitable demeanor. We are grateful to have been able to plan & design with these love-birds. Together, we were able to create an event that really resembled their personalities. It was a fab time, and looked drop-dead gorgeous! Their wedding was unique in it’s aesthetic and design combining formal, whimsical, and urban touches all around. It was one of those times when we mixed together an overwhelming amount of visuals, but it totally worked!
Marisa & Jason’s wedding was a well styled celebration of love and family. To get a general idea of their style and design, you have to understand some context of the couple. Marisa and Jason both work in the music biz and also happen to have the cutest little girl that you have ever seen named Olive that served as their flower girl.
The couple fell in love with Millwick, a venue with funky furniture in the middle of the arts district in downtown, because it gave them the perfect template to bring their creative, artistic vision to life.
It was important for the couple that all their guests have a great time and that the aesthetics were very detailed. We worked with them to craft a romantic soiree that was super fun, gorgeous and meaningful. As a venue, Millwick already has quite a bit going on, but the couple wanted to elevate the space to bring it from a laid back backdrop to the perfect setting for a formal fete. To set the stage, we started by hanging both greenery and bistro lights from the ceiling (lush + enchantment = swoon).
We made it detailed, but kept it simple and clean. We used individual champagne bottles as both the party favor and place card. We brought in cool mirror art, vintage glassware, specialty flatware, and lots of fun fab touches and more to bring the look from pretty to perfect!
We even put together a bit of a speakeasy with a secret tequila tasting and cigar bar, and brought in an old car to take fun photos.
Really fun meets really beautiful in this family-styled feast, complimented by one heck-of a Maids-of-Honor speech set to the ever so familiar “Fresh Prince of BelAir” rap.
The food was to die for and the look was divine. Everyone danced the night away and had an amazing night! Guests called it the best wedding ever (and we’ll take it!). We are also very excited to see this wedding featured in California Weddings Day’s upcoming magazine. Can’t wait!
