This is the first post in a new series dedicated to fabulous, modern bridal fashion! I based this bridal look around a gorgeous Donna Karan gown that features crisp, geometric folds along the neckline and bodice. Simple gold and black accessories with clean lines complete the ensemble.
Get ready for a whole lot of gorgeous! Captured by Kim Fox Photography, Katie and Eric were married this past June at a beautiful cultural center in Los Angeles, California. The venue, filled with modern lines and architecture, was the perfect setting for this stylish event. A color palette of gold and purple was used to accent the neutral colors of the venue. Katie and Eric completed a number of fun diy projects to make their wedding reflect their personalities. I love the gold crowns, inspired by “Where the Wild Things Are”, that everyone wore at the reception!
A few words from the bride:
Eric and I met in college and always have had a very fun-loving relationship. Although we didn’t realize right away we wanted to be together forever, we always kept in touch no matter what cities or oceans laid between us. When we decided to get married, we picked out the ring together, but I still managed to be shocked when he proposed to me while vacationing in Paris.
We love the clean lines and simplicity of the modern aesthetic so the floor to ceiling glass walls, high ceilings and the architecture of the Skirball was perfect. One of our favorite books is “Where the Wild Things Are” so we used that as a theme by framing quotes on tables and making gold crowns to add a playful and fun vibe to the party.
We didn’t want the planning of the wedding to be too stressful so with our families we did fun DIY things like spray painting bottles gold for the table numbers, creating a donation card to one of our favorite charities instead of favors, and designing and printing all paper used at the wedding. We also got vintage white Polaroid cameras so our guests could take pictures as they walked in which we turned into a memory book.
