Carondelet House Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Photos by:

Floataway Studios

Well, it looks like we might just have stumbled across our new favorite venue: Los Angeles’ Carondelet House. With a space that doubles as a beautiful ceremony hall and a warm and cozy reception venue, it’s easy to see why we’re so smitten. Jackie and Matt’s wedding day wanted their wedding to feel like “family living rooms over the holidays,” and judging by these images from Floataway Studios, we think it’s safe to say they achieved just that (and more)!

From the bride, Jackie: Inspired by the time of year, we wanted the celebration to feel like our family living rooms over the holidays. We wanted to capture the warmth, sense of togetherness and ease that comes with the season and infuse the evening air with it.

I have a huge family so food cascades from various corners, while people zip from here to there, and kids crawl about. I wanted to maintain that freedom and liveliness and knew that how we approached food would be the major driver in delivering this. We decided against a formal sit-down dinner and thought that a cocktail reception with passed heavy and playful hors d’ouerves would allow people to move and mingle freely. Matt and I love the outdoors and are daring in our own right. We wanted to nod to this in various ways. Heather of Twig and Twine brought in beautiful mosses and ferns as a backdrop to our story. We also gave our guests the option to donate to nature preservation causes in our registry. And in lieu of favors, we donated to the National Parks Conservation Association in their honor.

The Save the Dates were old postcards that I collected in Australia. I designed and printed out the text content in a bold, masculine font backwards and did image transfers of them with acetone. The invitations were a result of a worldwide collaboration between a graphic designer in Ohio, my mother-in-law in California, and myself in Australia. I knew I wanted to have a blend of materials in the suite and loved the idea of putting kraft paper, wood and cotton together. Alaina at Cheerupcherup printed the wooden RSVP cards and the envelopes. I requested the invite content as a digital file and had it made as a rubber stamp locally. I purchased homespun cotton and red thread at a fabric store, and kindly asked my mother-in-law to cut and stitch them to size. Once they made it back to Australia, I stamped and assembled the suite. Our event stylist created a guest book where our guests were asked to suggest adventures for us to go on or to give us any words of wisdom.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Think of your vendors as part of your team. Respect their time, energy, creativity and talent. Carve out a time in your celebration where it is just you and your husband and no one else. We are so thankful that our event stylist and coordinator, Wilmarose, set aside a 30 minute window after the ceremony and before we joined the reception that was just for us. She even had food and champagne waiting in the wings! Take a moment and soak it all in. Because you and your husband are tugged in different directions by excited friends and relatives, designate a friend to nudge you and your partner a couple of times to stop and marvel at the incredible swirl around you.

From the photographers, Casto Photography & Cinema: High school sweethearts Sarah & Branden envisioned a destination Georgia wedding celebrating their new life in the peach state while incorporating their love for their hometown in Maryland and love for the Baltimore Orioles (Branden is a pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles organization). They wanted to create a day that was both unique but would remain timeless. Incorporating the chippy brick walls of the venue, hints of copper, a bold color palette of blues and pinks, paired with sunlight streaming through the windows and classic pairings, Sarah & Branden’s wedding was truly one of a kind and a reflection of their sweet love.

Sailboats, waves, octopus and jellyfish are just a few of the amazing seaworthy designs featured in Concertina Press’s line of vintage inspired nautical wedding invitations and stationery.

“Ruth is an exceptional artist and artisan! She was very prompt to stay in communication with me throughout my ordering process. She worked with me to make sure that all my needs were met exactly. It was so comforting to work with her through the stressful process of ordering the perfect wedding invitations! I absolutely LOVE the way her products turned out, and cannot wait to send them to all my guests! Thank you SO MUCH Ruth, your kindness and professionalism have helped me more than you know!” ” – Emily D.

After living in the small town of Woods Hole on Cape Cod for nearly 11 years, Ruth, the owner and designer of Concertina Press, moved down to the sunny East coast of Florida to be closer to family. Her Cape Cod map save the date is still widely popular with couples getting married on the Cape, along with the matching wedding invitation. Since moving south she’s added more tropical designs including seahorses, sand dollars and waves.

Ruth takes pride in customer service, and making the online ordering process as easy as possible while still remaining personalized. You can purchase samples of any of her invitations online, or contact her directly with any questions or for a quote.
