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.
Wow, talk about a ceremony location with a view! Photographed by Turn Loose the Art, LIz and Lee’s gorgeous ceremony location in Jersey City, New Jersey had a stunning view of the Manhattan skyline. Although Liz was concerned that rain would ruin the outdoor garden ceremony, luckily, only sunshine was present on this beautiful June day. Following the ceremony, the couple and their guests enjoyed a scrumptious cocktail hour and tons of dancing. I love the gorgeous deep purple that accented the bridal party attire, floral arrangements and decor!
A few words from the bride:
“My husband and I met on JDate in the Summer of 2007. We had our first date at a dessert bar close to his apartment, which would foreshadow many many shared desserts together (as Lee has a big sweet tooth). We also found shared love of travel and have been all around the world together (Costa Rica, Agrentina, Turkey, Croatia, Hawaii), trying new foods and experiencing new cultures. Lee proposed to me in December of 2010 where he surprised me at a bed & breakfast. We honeymooned in Belize and have since gotten a puppy!
We are so happy with all the vendors who made our wedding such a special day. We’ve had so many compliments about everything from the food to the band and, of course, the photography.”
Captured by SMS Photography, Alana and Adam were married last March at The W Hotel in Austin, Texas. The sleek, modern design of the hotel creates the perfect backdrop for the couple’s stylish event. A color palette of pinks and purples stands out against the whites and grays of the venue. I especially adore the use of orchids; from bouquets, to boutonnieres, to the huppah, these stunning flowers created just the right amount of drama. A few words from the bride:
“Both Adam and I have contemporary taste so The W in Austin was the perfect venue. We loved that we were able to have our ceremony on the outdoor terrace overlooking the city followed by the reception inside the Great Room. We wanted a beautiful, simple and clean spring wedding that was true to our taste…and BZ Events delivered. Our focus was music, food and flowers and we couldn’t have been happier with all three. It was a night we will never forget!”
