Multicultural La Jolla Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

At this point it’s pretty much a given that any wedding Amorology Weddings touches is going to be a beaut. Doctors Devi and Ryan wanted to have both Hindu and Western ceremonies and reflect their bright personalities + professions. Captured to a T by Sunday Romance, this wedding stole our hearts and it’s kicking off the week in fun pops of pink, orange, and all around fusion fabulousness:

From Heather of Amorology Weddings: When Devi and Ryan met in a hospital in LA, these two doctors knew they showed all the symptoms for a love that was sure to last. For their Torrey Pines Hilton Indian-fusion wedding we found inspiration in their shared love of the medical field and for life. This couple was a dream to work with, who was not only willing to trust us but have fun throughout the process and the results were positive!

Ryan made his grand entrance during the baharat, where he was brought into the ceremony on a horse. The ceremony further hinted to the concept and feel of the event by exhibiting a custom sign we created that read “where there is love there is life”… a favorite phrase of the groom’s. This hung above them on the Mandap as they participated in two ceremonies, one Indian and one Western.

As guests entered the ceremony they passed through the “Waiting Room” and were directed to check in and leave their prescription for a good marriage at the receptionist’s desk. Colorful clipboards adorned the office wall while displaying guest names and what room they were to be seen in (A.K.A. Table assignments) for later that evening.

As guests made their way into the reception, they were greeted with candy pill bottle favors that
read “There is no remedy to love, but to love more.” by Henry David Thoreau. The bride’s favorite animal, the elephant, was brought in through whimsy custom table numbers and paper elements by Brightly Designed that illustrated elephants with different medical instruments. Candle votives were appropriately wrapped with white gauze adding another decor element and texture to the table. Gorgeous centerpieces by Twigg Botanicals made of coral charm peonies, tulips, dahlias and dripping with white phaleonopsis orchids offered the ballroom a lushness and garden feel. The vases were also custom wrapped with the first-aid plus sign that we carried throughout the event… hinting towards a love that makes everything better.

After dinner,guests indulged on a delicious “Sugar Coma” dessert bar which included cupcakes named: Case of the Coconuts, CPR (Chocolate Peanut Butter Resuscitation), Viral Vanilla, Chocolate Check Up, An Apple a Day, Chocolate Overdose and Caramel Consciousness.

The sweetness continued with the couple’s first dance and a garter toss where Devi blindfolded her groom and tricked him into getting the garter off his best man’s leg rather than hers!

We loved working with Ryan and Devi and hope their future is filled with all the health and happiness that they deserve! – Heather of Amorology Weddings

Crafty Los Angeles Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Photos by:

Alex and Helen’s wedding is the perfect batch of creativity, a day which Helen lovingly refers to as “Our Joyous Day”. The theme of their day was “AH, that’s love” — also the name of Helen’s blog — a tribute to the acronym of their names, Alex and Helen. Christian Cruz knocked these photographs way out of the park. Capturing the ceremony and reception at LA’s own Heritage Square, all coordinated by Danni Hong, who you may also know her from Oh, Hello Friend blog!

From the bride, Helen: I love all things vintage, particularly from the 1940s. Our wedding was 40s-inspired, and our color scheme consisted of my favorite colors: buttercup yellow, French blue, and cherry red. We also incorporated vintage books and library-inspired trinkets, since I am a high school English teacher and my mister is a pastor. When we found our venue, I fell in love with the intricate details and spaciousness of the Victorian house museum that had plenty of room for a ceremony, reception, guestbook area, photobooth lounge, board games & croquet area, and more. I love details and handcrafting lovely things, so our Joyous Day was a huge handmade affair that I supplemented with vintage decor from my apartment and things I collected from flea markets.

We were very fortunate to have a wonderful community of friends and family who were so willing to help with our wedding. We aimed for a budget of $15,000, and ended up spending about $17,000 for a 250-person wedding. Many friends helped to craft for the wedding, and most of our vendors were friends, including our photographer, videographer, florist, DJ, officiants, day-of coordinator, ceremony band, barbershop quartet, reception jazz band, first dance singer, etc. We are so thankful for their sacrificial hearts that made this wedding possible. Executing this wedding has taught us that our relationship is lovingly shaped by our dearest friends and family, and we cannot have a thriving marriage without them in our lives. Our Joyous Day was truly a celebration of love all around!
