From the bride, Jackie: We wanted something comfortable and homey. We love both rustic-chic and industrial styles which is why SmogShoppe was perfect for us. We chose a color scheme of blush, cream, and sage. The restored Durham Deli sign was originally built by Bob’s mom. We restored it and Emilia decorated it and found somewhere for it to be featured to pay homage to his mom.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? The day goes by so quickly that the majority of the true pleasure we found derived from all the love we felt and found leading up to it. The most important choice we made was to chose a wedding planner who completely understood our taste and style. If you find someone as amazing as we did, it makes it easy to relax and believe everything will work synergistically without having to micro-manage the details yourselves.

From the event designer and florist, Sweet Emilia Jane: When Jackie and Bob are together their infectious smiles and laughter brighten every single corner of the room. I love that The Hearts Haven was able to capture the very-special something that these two share. It just shines out of every image! I knew that their wedding was going to go down as one of the most fun-filled days ever and it blew past any expectation I had. We wanted to combine rustic romance with the SmogShoppe’s urban appeal. It was the perfect mix of styles for this glamorous yet down-to-earth couple who met on the ski slopes of Utah and have made a home for themselves in Los Angeles. Lace draped across the tables and literally hundreds of candles mixed in with garden roses, peonies and cafe au lait dahlias set the scene for our romance-to-the-max atmosphere. My favorite element by far, though, was the modern wood arch we draped with flowing fabric and dripping with greenery and flowers. Beyond the pretty, pretty details was a party that will most likely not be forgotten too soon by the lucky guests. Whoa Nelly, Pharmacie, Flashdance, The Vintage Table, SusieCakes, Carmela’s Ice Cream… pretty much the dreamiest dream team EVER! It was non-stop fun from beginning to end!

Huron Substation Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Our heart rate quickens just a bit any time we see a wedding at LA’s The Huron Substation, and even a little bit more when we see that Sweet Emilia Jane is behind the wedding design. Emilia didn’t hold back in making Jenn and Stephen’s wedding utterly memorable, and we’ve got Zaugh Photography to thank for taking control behind the camera for the big day!

From the bride, Jenn: We wanted to throw a fun dance party where everyone could mingle and enjoy each other. Instead of a sit-down dinner, we opted for a cocktail party with fried chicken sandwiches, pickles, stoli doli’s (our family favorite drink), and non-stop dancing to Motown and funk. We started serving drinks the second people arrived and provided a school bus to take everyone back to the hotel at the end of the night so people didn’t have to worry about boozing it up.

We really wanted our family to feel like they were a part of the ceremony — being that it’s not just about us, but two families coming together. It’s a Jewish tradition to plant a tree when a baby is born. So we came up with an idea to have our parents and grandparents each bring a jar of dirt from their homes. Some of the dirt was from Canada, there was sand from a beach in Florida, Boston, California… Each family member got up, gave us a blessing, and put the dirt in a single jar. When our first baby is born, Stephen and I are going to plant a tree using that dirt.

Our wedding was truly a labor of love. We had so many friends step in and donate their time as a wedding gift to make our dream day come true. We’re so grateful to David Zaugh who shot our photos, Holly from My Floral Bliss who created our beautiful flowers, and Alix Hester who baked our amazing cake. And of course very special thanks to Sweet Emilia Jane. She made the day run effortlessly and transformed our space into something more beautiful than anything I ever pinned on Pinterest! We actually have this stunning art piece that she made hanging in our hallway. Every time I see it, I think of how unique and special she made our day.

Any advice for couples planning their wedding now? Make sure you have a few easy activities beforehand. We threw a shrimp and crab boil in a very confined space where people were forced to wear bibs and get to know each other. By the time the wedding came, it was more fun because everybody was friends. Plus I didn’t feel as pressured to say hello to each person on the day… more time for dancing! Second, hire a videographer. There’s nothing like having a beautiful video to immediately transport you back to day. The Why We Love were so amazing – if they’re anywhere near you, hire them right now. So worth the splurge.

Little decoration was needed because so much was already there. We incorporated geographic elements into our wedding through our wedding invitations that doubled as a map, and with our seating chart and tables. Each tabled was named after a state we had both visited over the years. Our favors were the DIY coaster project and the potted succulents that guests could take home to use or plant in their garden.

We hired Sweet Emilia Jane so she could help guide our vision. She referred us to several vendors and because of her, Patrick and I were able to enjoy our wedding with our friends and family members.

We wanted to honor our wedding party’s individuality so the groomsmen wore their own suits and I picked Coralie Beatrix dresses so my bridesmaids could choose their own style and wear it again and Patrick’s was custom tailored. Throughout the entire planning process, I had a litany of friends offer me their services that included, but not limited to, hair + hair piece, makeup, bouquets, vendor referrals, and chalkboards. All the details of our wedding could be tied to someone generously giving their time or talent which made the day truly special.
