Happy Wedding Wednesday!
Before the year is up, we have one more wedding to share with you. We loved creating this celebration with the couple to bring their different backgrounds and fun personalities into the fabric of their day. Without further ado, we are happy to share the wedding of Allison & Matt with you, one of our favorite couples of last year.
Allison and Matt are a fun-loving couple that doesn’t take themselves too seriously. The love between these love-birds sparked when they met in college at Yale University. Matt is a Jewish actor and composer while Allison is a catholic Irish scholar of love in literature. For Allison’s Irish background, the couple opted for a traditional wedding at St. Ambrose Catholic Church located in West Hollywood. As urban-foodie lovers and Allison’s love for literature, it only made sense that the couple decided to hold their reception at Cafe Pinot located in the heart of downtown directly beside the Los Angeles Public Library.
We worked with Allison and Matt to create an enchanted urban garden filled with color and pattern that the guests could never forget. The design had a tailored elegance inspired by the colors of their alma mater using navy and greens with white touches and pops of copper (foxy, foxy foxy!). We wanted the place to glow, so we used florals with muted, neutral tones surrounded by candles galore to emphasize the natural and organic atmosphere with bistro lights overhead and uplights throughout the space to light up the night.
If you had not noticed, the name cards were paired with Irish bells. This Irish tradition is two-fold: to keep the bad spirits away, and as a signal for the couple to kiss (opposed to the old glass clink)! It was really important to this pair that their guests have a super fun time, so we incorporated “game night” fun with customized playing cards as party favors, and board games in the lounge area. Oh, and our favorite touch was the fancy-pants scotch tasting bar that kept the party going all night long!
The food was catered by the Patina restaurant group and was absolutely to die for. The night ended with an adorable cutting of the cake and a sweet kiss from the couple as the guests partied the night away.
Allison and Matthew’s wedding was a celebration to remember. We are so grateful to have been a part of it! Congratulations to the happy couple and thank you for another fun night out!
