From the Bride, Jennie:

Various shades of purple, magenta, indigo and grey were the main palette colors we wanted to draw from. There is so much green and grey within the space that I felt like it really needed a pop of color. My first instinct was to go with warm, bold colors…but after discussions with Kate, the floral designer, we went with a cooler, juicier feel. Really embracing the bright blues with fuchsias and raspberry reds.
we wanted our wedding to feel like one big dinner party and wanted a venue that would be conducive to having such an event. we wanted the wedding to feel intimate, despite having a guest count of 160 and wanted it to feel cozy, as opposed to stuffy or overly formal. the venue that we picked was perfect. it’s basically a big smog check center with high ceilings and it is one open space. there is really an indoor and outdoor feel to the venue, which we thought was perfect, since we wanted everyone to feel like they were a part of the wedding, no matter whether they were seated inside or outside.
The vintagey / old hollywood feel was established first a foremost by my gown, shoes, hair etc. Then we went forward from there. All the containers for the flowers were from Flowerwild’s personal collection. Paired with the flowers, a mixture of 3 to 4 arr per table – it had a very mondern edge to a throwback look. this theme ran throughout, from the venue to the attire to the music to the decor.

    These pics are GORGEOUS! The Smog Shoppe is one of my favorite venues in Los Angeles, as a wedding planner. And her dress and her bridesmaid dresses are perfect! Wonderful job!

  13. Jennie

    Thank you everyone for your kind words! Kate and Laura (and all of my other vendors) did an unbelievably amazing job. To answer some of your questions, the shoes are by Pedro Garcia (I believe they are called the D’Orsay pumps?) and the bridesmaids dresses were purchased very inexpensively on Newportnews.com. I randomly ran into the site, and the dresses fit in seamlessly with the rest of the wedding decor. As for the veil, I am actually selling it :)

  14. sarah

    beautiful! love the holga!!

  15. Megan
