Modern Downtown Los Angeles Wedding

Modern Weddings

A pair of newlyweds who never stop smiling and dance down the aisle are definitely our kinds of people. Anna Delores Photography captured Megan and Donald’s modern wedding at LA’s Millwick House, a venue so full of lush greenery that it nearly reminds us of a tropical oasis. Abby Lee Events helped the couple’s vision come alive, right down to the Mario and Princess Peach cake topper.

From the photographer, Anna Delores Photography: Megan and Donald stole our hearts after telling us that they met during a Zumba class (how freaking adorable is that?!?), and they couldn’t wait to bring the East and West Coast families together for a big day of love. This D.C. based couple decided to hold their wedding at the modern Millwick in the heart of Los Angles Arts District and Abby Lee Events worked closely with Megan to curate this gem of a wedding.

A Post-Elopement Reception at SmogShoppe

Elopements

We’ve shared quite a few elopements on Ruffled through the years, but it’s not often we get to take a peek at the celebrations that follow once you come home and spread the news to friends and family. Tatiana and William chose to elope in Georgia, but celebrated back in Los Angeles with Aaron Young Photography, Constance Curtis, and Holly Flora in tow creating endless magic for all to see.

a post-elopement reception at SmogShoppe

From the wedding planner, Constance Curtis Events: It was important to William (groom) and Tatiana (bride) to have a small intimate ceremony with only their immediate family. They did, however, still want to celebrate with all their extended family and friends. So as the wedding planning began, they decided to keep the intimate ceremony and the reception separate. The couple wed in Athens, Georgia and then celebrated their marriage at the SmogShoppe in Los Angeles, California, a few weeks later.

William and Tatiana wanted to create a fun party for all their friends traveling near and far. Many of their friends had never visited Los Angeles so picking a venue centrally located was important to them. It allowed their guests to stay in the city and explore. Entertainment was one of the most important elements for them. The couple has a favorite DJ they follow in Georgia so they decided to fly him out for the celebration. The couple never left the dance floor!

Floral-Filled Carondelet House Wedding

Romantic Weddings

No matter how many houses we see at Carondelet House, it never loses its appeal. It was a perfect fit for Rachel and David’s wedding captured by Valorie Darling Photography, which was a day full of some of the most striking hot pink flowers arranged by The Little Branch. Orange Blossom Special Events truly outdid themselves with the coordination on this one!

From the bride, Rachel: We got engaged 6/21/14. David planned an amazing surprise proposal at the Abbey (because it was where we had our first kiss). He tried to convince me we have to go for a friend’s birthday. When we got there he told me to keep walking toward the back and I finally came to a stand still when I got to an empty room with two huge cameras, roses and champagne. After, he surprised me with an engagement party (80 of our family/friends) at a friend’s store. We had the BEST night and left a few days later for Italy and Israel for two weeks to celebrate.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Plan quickly so you can relax and enjoy the process! Also remember that things really will go wrong (like a lot of things) so make sure you just go with the flow and enjoy your day.

Wedding Music:
Bride’s Processional: “At Last,” Etta James
First Dance: “Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me,” Mel Carter
Our cocktail hour was all Gipsy Kings! And the dancing was a fun mix of 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s and current music (think Madonna, Prince mixed with Don Omar and Haim)

Festive Wedding Celebration at Millwick

Pie-Shoppe

This was the sweetest day and oh how I wish I was a fly on the wall of this wedding, especially at Ashley and Luis’s ceremony during her vows. I am such a sucker for custom vows and ones that make you teary! Pie-Shoppe snapped the entire day and night away and I love all of the love between these two that were conveyed through the images. Orange Blossom Special Events and Foxtail Florals teamed up and infused the whole day with lovely muted colors, wonderful blooms, romance galore, and brilliant Mexican decor.

Festive Wedding Celebration at Millwick - photo by Pie-Shoppe http://ruffledblog.com/festive-wedding-celebration-at-millwick

From the event designer, Grace of Orange Blossom Special Events: Ashley grew up in LA, she has an affinity for individuals with disabilities, and has been fortunate to travel to amazing places like India, China and more. Luis grew up in Mexico City, he has a strong entrepreneurial spirit and somehow manages to win almost every competitive game he plays. They both love midcentury style, they love to stay up to date on local hot spots, and have a precious 5 pound puppy named Ella.

What’s more nostalgic (and adorable) than a wedding inspired by schoolhouse charm? That was the order of the day for vendors participating in The Big Fake Wedding in Los Angeles, and these wedding professionals absolutely delivered. Add in a tea-length wedding dress, a custom love song played for the first dance, and paper airplanes and you’ve got one for the books.

Los Angeles Foodie Wedding

Modern Weddings

How could a wedding between two restaurant owners not be good? Steve and Shanti’s LA wedding, photographed by Christina Lilly Photography, is full of wildflowers, a carefree bohemian attitude, and of course, all the good food you could hope to eat. Where else would such a beautiful wedding feel at home but SmogShoppe?

Los Angeles foodie wedding - photo by Christina Lilly http://ruffledblog.com/los-angeles-foodie-wedding

From the photographer, Christina Lilly Photography: The couple are restaurant owners and have a love for food and community. Steve is from upstate NY and comes from a family or artists and innovators. Shanti is from Southern California and comes from a family of hippies and her name basically sums her up, Shanti Star Church. They decided to bring their wedding to California where all of Shanti’s family and friends could add their touch to the wedding. The couple is passionate about incorporating surrounding artisans and they do the same in their restaurant back home.

The Reason

Today’s wedding beautifully captures the wonder of downtown Los Angeles while simultaneous infusing some tropical charm. The Reason, Beijos Events, and Elizabeth Bailey Designs worked to bring Chris and Nicole’s vision to reality, even incorporating clips from favorite movies during the reception as a nod to the groom’s profession.

From the event stylists, Beijos Events: The Billigs just LOVE LA and that was the overall theme and personality behind their big and special day. They got ready at the beautiful villas at Sunset Marquis Hotel then married at the new and unique Millwick in DTLA. Chris, the groom, is in the movie industry and they had an amazing video loop playing on the awesome backdrop at their reception that consisted of movie clips from all of our all-time favorite movies. Nicole the bride, works in the food industry and has a food blog, resulting in this couples major foodie status. Room Forty did an exceptional job with four amazing courses for their guests. The couple wanted to bring out their love for the city and its sophistication using muted classic colors paired with organic greens setting the tone for their modern gala. Needless to say, it was an incredible night!

Colorful Carondelet House Wedding

Romantic Weddings

By now, it seems like we’ve professed our love for Carondelet House dozens of times. If you aren’t already as smitten as we are, then by the time you see these images from Lukas & Suzy VanDyke you’ll completely understand the hype. Thanks to Orange Blossom Special Events and Peony & Plum for helping bring together the couple’s vision for a cultural celebration of love!

From the bride, Jenny: I met Paul when he was three weeks away from moving to China for a year. I didn’t think he would call me since he was leaving so soon, but the next day he set up a unique date for us. He wanted to share some of his experiences with me, as he had traveled all over the world — to India, Vietnam, Cambodia, Israel, Jordan, Thailand, and Sri Lanka, to name a few. Paul found a Sri Lankan festival in Santa Monica and brought me to listen to the music, enjoy the dancing and the spicy food. We grew so close over those three weeks before he left for China and continued to fall in love while he was across the world.

A year later, Paul came home and we moved in together. We rescued the best dog ever, our fur baby, Ellie! One day I came home to find a note on the door. Paul had set up a scavenger hunt and used pictures from our relationship as the clues. He posted the pictures all over our neighborhood, and at the end of the hunt I found Paul and Ellie (and a ton of strangers who had gathered to watch) standing with roses. Paul got down on one knee, and of course I said yes. But he wasn’t done just yet. It just so happened to be Sri Lankan day in Santa Monica that evening, so to celebrate we relived our first date.

When designing our wedding, we wanted to incorporate lots of color and flowers inspired by the cultures that Paul and I love. We didn’t want it to be too girly. So I was especially thrilled when I stumbled upon Hmong runners and napkins from Thailand. We couldn’t be more thrilled with how everything came together and we cannot thank all our vendors enough for all their hard work to make our day just perfect!

Romantic Bohemian Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

This styled shoot from FreeHope Photography, Danielle Mitchell Events, and Floral Designs by Christa Rose has a bit of it all — a bohemian ceremony, an industrial reception, and serious romance tying everything together. Who knew a zinc table could look so incredibly chic?

romantic-bohemian-wedding-ideas - photo by FreeHope Photography http://ruffledblog.com/romantic-bohemian-wedding-ideas

From the photographer, FreeHope Photography: This collaboration was inspired by a rich autumn palette and a vision of eclectic vintage meets industrial, city life. We’ve incorporated a subtle elegant look of watercolor details, handmade touches in the large macrame backdrop, and indie flair with mismatched rugs lining the aisle. The simple glow of candles on the zinc top tables and against the red brick wall brought an effortless air of romance to the whole space.

Fresh and Colorful Lombardi House Wedding

Modern Weddings

Photos by:

Bonnie Tsang

Any wedding that’s full of color, fun, and ends the night with a trip to In-n-Out is going to grab my attention for sure. Hyeyoung and Gabriel’s wedding from Bonnie Tsang, GATHER Events, and Primary Petals was about as joyous as they come, which is totally evident in their wedding pictures — so we’ll let them speak for themselves!

Ruffled - photo by Bonnie Tsang http://ruffledblog.com/fresh-and-colorful-lombardi-house-wedding

From the bride, Hyeyoung: Our favorite memory was sitting down in the beautiful reception and looking out at everyone. We felt so blessed to have so many people from various moments of our life – and from across the world – present, celebrating us. We felt so much love in that moment. Their love for us individually and as a couple – and our love for everyone in that room – felt so palpable and we will never forget that feeling.

We wanted our ceremony to reflect love and family and we felt so happy to have it truly be a family affair. It felt so special to have Hyeyoung’s brother-in-law, Stephen Ahnert, officiate the ceremony. We loved the readings by Best Man, Michael Colon, Maid of Honor and Sister of the Bride, Soyoung Oh, and the groom’s parents, Carmen and Carl Nelson. We loved having Best Man and Brother of the Groom, Christopher Nelson, standing up there with us. And lastly, it was so special to have Hyeyoung’s parents, Ai Jung and Mootak Oh, and her 3 month old nephew, Owen Ahnert, all present and part of the ceremony. Along with this, having Hyeyoung’s aunt and cousins, traveling from Seoul, Korea and Hawaii, and Gabriel’s aunts, uncle, and cousins from Colorado and Illinois all present made the occasion even more joyful and special. Having Hyeyoung’s cousin’s husband, Jae Hwa Choi, DJ the event was the icing on the cake. Beyond this, having the majority of the guests fly in from across the United States to celebrate with us clearly demonstrated their love for us and we are immensely grateful.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? “Don’t sweat the small stuff” – this motto really sticks in our minds when thinking about wedding planning. Now the small stuff can, and will, differ from couple to couple. So I think the first thing to do is to sit down and decide what are the indispensable things and what are the “small” things. Once you have a clear idea of what you really want, it will make the planning process go much more smoothly and hopefully make the week-of leading to the big day much easier. Don’t let “small” things become large things during an undeniably emotional time. Also, during the special day, I think what truly becomes self evident is that even the seemingly “large” things are actually “small” things as it becomes crystal clear that only one thing really matters: being surrounded by family and friends – sharing in so much love, joy, laughter, and happy tears. Also, if available in the budget, hiring a planner is essential. We can unequivocally state that without Robin and GATHER Events, the day would not have been possible. Robin understood our aesthetic and what we wanted to focus on for the ceremony and reception, helping us bring to life our vision of the wedding. She also managed countless dilemmas and issues (ones that we probably are even unaware of) that emerged without involving us – which we are so grateful for. As such, we cannot emphasize enough the value of a planner. The thing is – amidst this joyful time, even with a planner, it will be stressful – so having a planner will truly save you quite a bit of stress and tears. Lastly, as noted, even with a full planning team and everything in place, the week leading up to the wedding will be stressful – especially as family and friends start to arrive to celebrate with you ahead of time. Make sure both the bride and groom/bride and bride/groom and groom make time for themselves – book your own hotel room away from everyone else, go to the spa, workout on your own, etc (whatever that truly allows you to decompress). The same way you schedule drinks, a meal, a coffee break, schedule time for yourself because it will be an intense time and taking opportunities to recharge alone will be essential.

From the event designers, GATHER Events: Hyeyoung and Gabriel envisioned a joyous and festive day with lots of vibrant, happy colors. Fresh pops of peach, fuschia, yellow and orange in the design details offset Lombardi House’s clean neutral color palette. Primary Petals created the most gorgeous bridal bouquet with lush, colorful, textured florals, including peonies, poppies, ranunculus, succulents and eucalyptus. Hyeyoung and Gabriel got married behind our hand-dyed fabric backdrop for an extra touch of romance. Lupa & Pepi livened up their crisp, clean paper goods with fun geometric shapes and vibrant swaths of paint. A column of glowing twinkle lights softened the long u-shaped communal dinner table inside the venue’s modern barn and long, lush runners of greenery and pops of florals dressed the exposed wooden dinner tables. Little Nelly’s dinner spread included flank steak, slow-roasted salmon, torchio pasta and market vegetables and the evening was topped by a decadent dessert table of red velvet cake and mini desserts including cheesecake, fruit crisp and sea salt caramel pudding. With a guest list that included a number of professional dancers, the couple anticipated the dance floor to be a focal point of the event. We created a light and fabric curtain surrounding the dance floor and creating a cozy space for people to dance the night away. And dance, they did! We were treated to the most amazing dance-offs between street and Latin ballroom dancers. Guests recharged with a late night treat of In N Out burgers before the event concluded with a sparkler sendoff. It was the perfect celebration for this vibrant couple!

Brian Saculles

Not only do we love bridal showers with beautiful design ideas, we’ve shared quite a bit of them over the years. This time we’re letting the boys join in on the fun with this exceptionally styled bachelor shower from Brian Saculles, The Grunion Run Groomsmen Shop, Couture Events, and Shindig Chic. Impeccably dressed men with yummy cocktails and a modern tablescape to boot — how does it get better than that?

From the event designer, Couture Events: When the wedding bells are ringing, why do the girls get to have all of the fun? Couture Events, Southern California’s preeminent wedding styling and coordination studio, was thrilled to plan and execute a creatively styled shoot for a Bachelor Shower to give a toast to the groom and his guys. Complete with a cigar lounge where the boys can play poker, a classy bar stocked with signature drinks, donuts & desserts station and a dining table fit for a king.

Romantic Peach Wedding at LA Arboretum

Bohemian Weddings

When your inspiration for your wedding day is Anthropologie, it’s a safe bet you’ll be dealing in some seriously eclectic and chic style. That’s the look bride Savannah went for when she married her beau Coleman in Los Angeles, with the talented Joe+Kathrina Photography and Tasteful Tatters in tow. Add in some DIY touches from the bride’s family and friends, and you’ve got this beautiful result!

romantic peach wedding at LA Arboretum - photo by Joe and Kathrina Photography http://ruffledblog.com/romantic-peach-wedding-at-la-arboretum

From the bride, Savannah: I would definitely have to say that Anthropologie inspired the look and feel of my wedding. The Anthropologie brand and style is distinct and easy to identify, which is what I wanted people to think of my wedding; when they walked into our venue and looked around I wanted them to feel my personal style through the entire decor. I wanted each guest to think, “Wow, this feels just like Coleman and Savannah.” Well… who am I kidding? My cowboy husband definitely doesn’t exactly have the Anthropologie style, but you know what I mean, I wanted it to feel like us :) Bold patterns, an artistic feel and a feminine touch, were all things I drew upon from the Anthropologie style.

My wonderful wedding coordinator Emilee Sutherland and her team created these amazing DIY napkins for all of our guests. They were so beautiful and exactly what I wanted. The Tasteful Tatter team also made these to die for cake and pie boxes so that the guests could all take a slice of pie or cake home as their favor. This is just another example of them making my vision come to life, I showed them a picture and they did it! They are incredible. My last name is Lay, like Lay’s potato chips, so as a fun and personal touch we also handed out Lay’s potato chips with a cute tag as another favor. So cheesy, but cute! My cute momma and all of her friends also made individual cakes for each table. This way, when my hubby and I cut the cake, all of our guests were able to cut their cake at the same time. The individual cakes were so beautiful and such a unique touch. It was a perfect way to engage the guests and make them part of the experience.

Wedding Music:
First Dance: “Making Memories of Us,” Keith Urban

From the photographers, Joe+Kathrina Photography: Savannah had told friends, “I’m going to marry a cowboy one day.” As she went off to college little did she know that she’d really meet her cowboy. Enter: Coleman, an actual farmer whose family owns and runs a farming business in Oregon. Friends knew instantly these two were in it for life. While planning a wedding in California, Savannah worked on finishing up school in Boise – which needless to say made it all quite difficult. They were hard set on their June date which made it even more difficult to find the perfect outdoor venue where they could really put their own touches to bring together both their city and country families together. Savannah’s parents really helped find their venue and with Emilee and her team this wedding came together perfectly. There were hints of DIY with romantic flair throughout the day. From each table having their own homemade cake and different cake topper as their centerpieces, plexi glass menus, a thrift found bike with a basket as their escort “table”, a fun pattern as their tablecloth, a large “Love is Patient” decor at their sweetheart table, and of course cowboy boots. We had only been able to meet with Savannah in person before the wedding, which is always nerve racking having to wait until the wedding day to meet the groom but Coleman could not have been more gracious. Watching these two and photographing them together, they were so natural in each others arms. Most of all you could fee; their happiness together. It was a good day.

Modern Los Angeles Wedding at SmogShoppe

Modern Weddings

There’s no doubt about it, modern weddings truly shine at LA’s SmogShoppe. Add in a “kick of style” as the bride says, and you’ve got this whopper of an event from Chaz Cruz Photographer, So Happi Together, and Bloom Box. With a black, white, and gold color palette, the geometric accents truly shine through!

modern Los Angeles wedding at SmogShoppe - photo by Chaz Cruz http://ruffledblog.com/boho-glam-wedding-in-colorado

From the bride, Tiffany: Len and I met during our last year at the University of California, Irvine (zot! zot!) through a mutual friend who was one of our groomsmen. We were together for 6 awesome years before Len proposed in Central Park, a place where we spent a lot of time during our years living in New York City. After the proposal, we moved back to Los Angeles to start our new life. Our wedding was the BEST. DAY. EVER. (thus far, of course). We know it’s cliché to say so, but it really was! It was everything we imagined it to be, plus more. Ultimately, we wanted the day to reflect us: modern and elegant with a kick of style. But we also wanted the day to be very personal.

In keeping with tradition, we were married in the same church my parents were married in 30 years ago, I used my mother’s veil and added a few extra details, and we used my grandmother’s wedding dress skirt as our veil during the traditional Filipino ceremony. These all added to the sentiment of the day and meant a lot to us and our family.Our journey began after meeting our wedding planner Nancy Park of So Happi Together and our photographer Chaz Cruz of Chaz Cruz Photography. Both have to be two of the most talented people in the wedding industry, hands down! Just take a look at the photos – they speak for themselves! Also, the most important thing to us was being able to relate to all our vendors on a more personal level, even after the wedding was over. All we had to do was tell them what we wanted and like the magicians they are, they made all our wishes come true. We loved Chaz’s work so much we printed all our engagement photos on canvas and displayed them on a bookshelf at the reception. We enlarged our favorite shot which ended up being the backdrop to our dessert table at the wedding.

Everything was pretty much seamless after Nancy joined the picture. She was always there for us, reliable, responsive, honest, and went above and beyond in every project. She is really everything you could want from a wedding planner. She was truly there for me the way a good girlfriend would be there for you on your wedding day. After signing with her, we now had time to create and DIY some of the details. We gold dipped crystals to go with the place cards, and my mother, grandmother and I made all of our detailed napkins from scratch. I really have to hand the credit to Fayaz at Bloombox Designs who really just took our floral and decor ideas to another level that left us breathless the second we walked into our reception venue. We sincerely love all of our vendors and appreciate everything they did to make our day special.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? First, hire a wedding planner. I know this may seem daunting, but they really know what they’re doing and will save your sanity. They will allow you to enjoy your day, and the process of planning. Trust me, you won’t regret it. Secondly, I would ask to prioritize the aspects of your wedding that mean most to you and go from there (aka splurge!). For us, the three most important things to us were photography, food and invitations. Urban Palate, our caterer, blew our minds on the day of the wedding, just as they did during our tasting. We’re planning on scheduling another tasting to celebrate our 1 year anniversary! Our cake was from Sweet and Saucy and was delicious! I wish I could go back in time to eat more of it. They executed our design inspiration perfectly! Our invitation suite was from Lucky Penny Paperie, a letterpress stationery vendor I found on Etsy. The calligraphy on our envelopes and place cards were done by Tammy Mendoza with Letters to You. Her handwriting is so unique and beautiful and we’ll cherish them forever. We got so many wonderful comments on them! Last but not least, I would ask you to savor every moment and have fun! Don’t just go through the motions because before you know it, your gorgeous day will be over! Also, remember to SMILE!

Organic Sophistication in Venice Beach

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Ashley Kelemen

“Romance with a touch of edginess” is how the event designer behind today’s shoot describes her vision, and to say mission accomplished is a true understatement. Ashley Kelemen, Belle Destination Weddings & Events, and Sweet Marie Designs took a color palette of slate grey, deep reds, and light pinks and built a modern weddingscape around it, and we can’t help but fall head over heels in love with the result.

organic sophistication in Venice Beach - photo by Ashley Kelemen http://ruffledblog.com/organic-sophistication-in-venice-beach

From the event designer, Belle Destination Weddings & Events: The inspiration for the shoot started with the desire to combine modern and classic elements together, fusing romance with a touch of edginess. The 3 story state of the art industrial mini-mansion at 800Main in the heart of Venice Beach California was a perfect starting point. The space is vast and offers many separate areas to host a ceremony, cocktail and dinner reception.

To set the vibe of the dinner table, we chose to incorporate a base of charcoal colors for the table linen and chairs while softening up the look with layering a lighter and billowed runner down the center. The asymmetrical floral centerpiece gorgeously designed by Sweet Marie Designs graced the table with pops of rich burgundy colors fading into softer and lighter hues, ending with a cascade of greenery down one side of the table offering a little touch of “wild”.

For the table top decor, we wanted to incorporate a mixed metals look using golds brass, and mercury tones. We did this by bringing in modern gold place card holders, brass flatware & candle holders and mercury votives. An eclectic collection of vintage china displaying a mix of metallic detail paired with smokey charcoal goblets added the perfect compliment to the table setting. The place cards and dinner menus designed by Erica Keuter Designs displaying ripped edges provided the final touch.

We couldn’t take our eyes off of the one-of-a-kind vintage decadence engagement ring which was just the right amount of bling!

Penguin Books Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

As an avid lover of English literature, this next shoot is utterly irresistible for me. A talented team including Ilene Squires Photography, Party Task Force, and Valerie Jurado put together a wedding session inspired by Penguin paperback books, adding a bit of neon flair and modern wedding ideas to round everything out. What better time for a vintage book page backdrop?

literary love inspired wedding shoot - photo by Ilene Squires Photography http://ruffledblog.com/literary-love-inspired-wedding-shoot

From the event designer, Andrea of Party Task Force: Our styled shoot was inspired by the iconic Penguin paperback books. Based on the polychromatic Penguin books, I chose a color palette of bright jewel tones including orange, emerald green, and dark blue. And the graphic, triple-banded covers of the books inspired everything from the invitations, to the color-blocked bridesmaids’ dresses, to the inside and outside of the cake! The bright pops of orange in the chargers and napkins, and the beautiful liquor decanters in emerald green, dark topaz, and amber which lined the table along with stacks of colorful Penguin books brought in even more color. Plus, the napkins and place cards were designed to look like Penguin book covers underneath each guest’s glass plate, and the brass penguins, candlesticks, and cameras infused the table with some vintage soul.

Italian Villa Dinner Party Inspired Wedding

Romantic Weddings

LA’s Carondelet House is as popular a wedding venue as ever, and yet we never tire of seeing it. When it comes to creating effortless glamour, well, they’ve cornered the market. Jenn and Chris planned their wedding with the help of Joyeuse Photography, Fleuretica, and Joyce Kim Weddings, and we love their refreshing approach for decor — Jenn says she designed everything as if she were decorating her own home!

From the bride, Jennifer: Chris and I first met in SF at a singles Valentine’s Day dinner party thrown by a mutual friend, not one intended to introduce people to their “special someone” but more in the vein of “this holiday sucks. I’ll cook so if you’re not doing anything, come over.” We went on our first date several months later, and five years to the DAY since that first date, we got married in my hometown of LA.

Our dream wedding was inspired by an Italian Villa dinner party and a gorgeous venue like Carondelet House really made it easy for that to become reality. I approached the entire wedding planning process as if I were decorating my home; I was far more focused on creating a certain ambiance over incorporating colors and schemes, although admittedly, I’ll always be partial to the color gold! If it felt “warm, romantic, and soft”, I was pretty much game.

Starting with the outfit of this fabulous party host aka my wedding dress, I wore a classically Jenny Packham beaded sheath dress which matched the old-school glamour of Carondelet House perfectly. It was also important that I looked and felt comfortable, still in keeping with a glamorous Italian-Villa-owning-party-host! To go with my relaxed and romantic gown, I had a wildflower bouquet of loosely arranged seasonal blooms like dahlias & ranunculi added in with my personal favourite, astilbe. Similar blooms in a mixture of mini bud vases and mason jars, along with candles galore were scattered across the dinner tables. I wanted to keep flowers fairly minimal in keeping with the relaxed intimate dinner vibe, just enough to accent the natural beauty of Carondelet House (exposed brick, bright windows and dazzling chandeliers). Everything was set against a white backdrop with streaming lights and smilax vines which I felt really punctuated the entire room with romance!

In addition to instilling a “warm and inviting” quality throughout the wedding, Chris and I also cared a lot about incorporating special touches that reflected who we were. So what exactly reflects us? If you were to ask that to our guests, they would unanimously answer “they love to eat”. So not surprisingly, we wanted to highlight our shared love of grub. For example, our table names were the names of our favourite restaurants which were calligraphed onto beautiful antique gold mirrors. We used French ivory paper lace doilies with guests’ names calligraphed in gold as place cards which looked so elegant when laid out onto the reclaimed wood tables . We had pictures in gold frames featuring photos of us from many of our most memorable meals, including one from our engagement which took place at of course, a restaurant (with the help from my favourite chef, Thomas Keller). We had our dinner menu assembled into cootie catchers and straw flags with food related trivia about us. Additionally, we featured this one project poster that listed every single restaurant Chris and I had ever dined in together during our 5 years of dating, along with who we dined with, obviously many of whom were our guests. This last detail was particularly rewarding as rarely does my my addiction to list-making/documenting benefit someone other than just myself.

Our wedding was truly an unforgettable night, and although I was so happy that all my RuffledBlog inspirations came true, all that really mattered were the vows we made to love each other forever surrounded by all those we hold dear. Actually (sorry, humblebrag alert!), the owner of the villa somehow got a hold of this footage and asked if he could feature it on their website. Quoting him, “it was the most touching, endearing video I have ever seen created at Carondelet House. It truly captured the essence of a beautiful couple on a beautiful day.” Chris and I are very aware of the insane videoediting talent of Amari Productions, in addition to the glamorous wardrobe and makeup that helped us look our best that day. However, we still believe that essence he was referring to was also because of our deeply rooted love that just radiated through, especially as it multiplied from all the additional love we were showered from our family and friends. We were super flattered and needless to say, we continue to visit Carondelet House’s homepage from time to time!

Modern 4th of July Summer Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

We’re kicking off 4th of July weekend with a bit of ultra modern Independence Day inspiration straight from the rooftops of LA. This shoot from Jessica Lynne Studios, Inessa Nichols Design, and Blue Box Events trades in the traditional red, white, and blue for a palette of black, white, gold, and a burst of greenery for an ultra mod feel. Prepare yourself to be inspired and have a happy 4th, all!

From the photographer, Jessica of Jessica Lynne Studios: The City of Angels shoot is inspiration for the modern LA bride who wants to embrace her *own* style on her wedding day. With this shoot, we sought to create something that would appeal that trendy LA couple who frequents Verve Coffee, lives in a historic artist loft and could be found meandering around the flower market on Saturday mornings.

To achieve this very minimal, modern LA vibe, we took bridal style somewhere different – keeping our florals to only greenery, letting the groom wear his favorite denim jacket instead of a tux & choosing a venue with the very best view of the city.

One of my favorite parts of the shoot was the Mondrian-inspired greenery wall that Inessa created. Not to mention, the sassy black & white American flag tapestry from Urban Outfitters used as tablecloth and most of all ending on a helipad overlooking the entire City of Angels. We are so thrilled to share the outcome – we had the time of our lives creating this!

Sophisticated Science Fiction Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

The Melideos

Before I saw this wedding, I might have been a bit skeptical of a Great Gatsby meets science fiction wedding — but these images from The Melideos prove that not only can it be done, it can be done absolutely beautifully. Celestial details (like star-shaped confetti and Moon Pies for dessert) commingle with tables named after classic science fiction films, all wrapped up in a classically glam Los Angeles setting.

From the bride, Bianca: My husband Felix and I share an affinity for classic vintage style and movies, so we aimed for an elegant, vintage glam affair reminiscent of those ballroom scenes in black & white movies from the 30s & 40s — Old Hollywood without being too literal. Beyond that, our only requirements were that the wedding be outside with delicious food and lots of dancing. When we found Cafe Pinot, with its beautiful courtyard gardens, city skyline views and the iconic Art Deco L.A. Library as a backdrop, we knew it was the place for us. It provided the perfect modern meets vintage vibe and really echoed our aesthetic as a couple. The fact that it’s located in downtown LA, where we met, fell in love, and currently live, made it even more special.

Flower recipe: Bouquet — Black Magic and Piano roses, peonies, waxflowers, chamomile flowers, eucalyptus and myrtle. Centerpieces — Black Magic roses, spray roses, Sarah Bernhardt pink peonies, antique green hydrangea, white & red wax flowers, pink rice flowers, eucalyptus and myrtle.

I’m a writer and astrology/metaphysics nerd and Felix is a science fiction geek, so we went with a loose celestial theme — “Written in the Stars”. We named our tables after favorite science fiction movies and gave Moon Pies as favors. Color scheme was white and gold with navy blue accents. And — because my husband is Chinese — red flowers for luck. The venue didn’t require much decor, so my mom & I DIY’d all of it. She made confetti cones using pages from Arthur Miller’s autobiography “Time Bends” and gold star confetti. I painted white eyelet Chinese lanterns with gold glitter paint and inserted lights to make them look like stars in our ceremony tree, and framed vintage astronomy prints for the escort table. Our signage, programs, escort & table cards were Etsy custom designs we had printed locally. Our biggest DIY project was the flowers. My mom & I designed/arranged all the florals — except the boutonnieres. We picked up 2 carloads of flowers from the LA Flower Market and put everything together with a couple helpers. It was a lot to take on, and the money saved maybe wasn’t worth the added stress, but ultimately we were super happy and proud of what we’d accomplished together. And everyone wanted the center pieces at the end of the night!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? It’s just one day! Try not to sweat the details, be flexible, roll with the punches and let go of expectations. Everyone will have an opinion about everything — be gracious but firm in your vision. Be present and enjoy this moment in time. Also — invitations get thrown away! You need trees more than museum board. Trust me.

Tropical Leaves and Sea Glass Wedding Shoot

Wedding Design

Now that we’ve finally made it to summer, we’ve got the perfect shoot to make these hot days feel just a bit cooler. Krista Mason Photography, Lauryl Lane Botanical Stylist, Chic Celebrations put together this beautiful wedding session overflowing with tropical greenery and sea glass for the centerpieces, with just a bit of yellow to bring in an extra bit of color. And that BHLDN wedding dress? Definitely a new favorite.

From the event designer, Gianna of Chic Celebrations: The Lombardi House is one of our favorite new venues! Though it’s in the heart of Hollywood, when you step onto the property, you are immediately transported to another time and place. We wanted to bring that feeling through this shoot. Oversized tropical greens were the perfect pop against the crisp white space.

As soon as we spotted that gorgeous BHLDN dress, we knew. It was the one. The detail in the lace overlay went perfect with the breezy, tropical vibe of the day. For a splash of color, we brought in a collection of sea glass bottles, all different sizes, to run down the table over loose gauze runner. Names were written across leaves and perfectly accented the wood chargers. The whole day made us want to getaway to the tropics!

Romantic Organic Wedding at Elysian LA

Wedding Design

When you blend romantic and urban styles, beautiful things can happen — just look to this styled shoot from Erin J Saldana, Etablir, and The Flower Lab for proof. Shades of aqua, gold, and green dance together and make the most eye-catching symphony, while a mix of roses and anemones top off the look with inspiring floral design.

From the event stylist, Vivian of Etablir: The inspiration for the photo shoot was based off of the love for a beautiful garden I visited in Paris called the Jardin du Luxembourg. Since then I have always envisioned a glasshouse inspired wedding in a Paris type garden setting. With that said, I teamed up with a group of talented vendors and created a hybrid of our styles for this dreamy wedding styled shoot. It seems to be a great juxtaposition between romantic and urban. There is a great aesthetic when combining the two! Beautiful detailed garden and dress design among eclectic industrial urban lifestyle.

Sheer Romance Wedding at Carondelet House

Elegant Weddings

Carondelet House, you never disappoint. Brandi Welles Photographer and The Poppy Studio recently worked together on Sabrina and Lino’s wedding day, bringing us some incredibly beautiful images and floral design in the process. One of our favorite details? Take a look at the reception centerpieces, and you just may find a hint or two of fresh fruit peeking out!

From the bride, Sabrina: Our ceremony took place on a beautiful, sunny afternoon at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in downtown LA. Its grandiose presence set the stage for the day. Built in the 1920’s, it’s romanesque architecture was reminiscent of the churches I frequented on family trips to Italy. After the ceremony, we proceeded to our reception in true vintage Italian style as we drove away in a 1959 mint green Fiat convertible. The ride from the church to the reception was truly our favorite moment of the day. With the warm of the autumn breeze surrounded by feelings of pure love and excitement, the day couldn’t have seemed more perfect.

The reception dinning area had two large family style tables surrounded by round tables filled with lush floral arrangements created by the Poopy Studio, which included shades of beige, brown, green foliage, along with apples and oranges. Before the wedding I scoured flea markets for weeks in search of unique vintage decor such as vintage pink and milk glass vases. Tre LA completed the look with vinage glassware used during dinner. After dinner, guest were let loose to the dance floor and to munch on homemade Italian biscotti, not to mention the wedding cake. Lino and I joined in the fun after I slipped into my hanbok, a tradition Korean dress to pay homage to his culture. As we danced the night away, surrounded by our Korean-Italian families and friends, we knew that very moment the magic of the day would be ours forever.

I’m not quite sure we had a true theme, but we really wanted to integrate both of our cultures into the day. Lino’s mother and family members wear classic Korean hanboks (traditional dress). I walked down the asile to my favorite Italian composer Enio Morraconni. We left the church with style in a 1959 Fiat 500. We had an Italian Biscotti bar for dessert made by all the wonderful Italian women in my life, and I danced the night away in a hanbok to pay homage to Lino’s culture. The color scheme we used was beige, blush, and gold. I DIYed as many projects as I could and I loved every minute of it. It added just the perfect touch of personal detail to the day. I made the moss initials that hung on the metal gates at the entrance of the reception. I made our seating chart using a $20 frame, ribbon and tags. I made a lovely framed heart art out of twine that was placed on our gift table. I found an old vintage tackle box and placed doilies inside for a unique card box. I rummaged through flea markets for months in search of an old typewriter, vintage pink glass vases, and for old frames to use for our parents and grandparents wedding photos. I printed all of our menus, seating chart and ceremony programs.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Don’t let too many people influence your decisions regarding the planning process. Everyone as an opinion about something. Remember, the day is about you two. If you want to invite 50 people as oppose to 150, stick with it and stand your ground. In the end, this day is a reflection of your love and personalities. The day flies by, and everyone will tell you that. Try to sit back and take in a few specials moments of the day, and preserve those feels and moments deep within your heart. For us, that moment was the 10 minute car ride from the church to the reception. We had the top down in our adorable 1959 mint green Fiat. With the warmth of the autumn day and breeze upon us in the back seat, that was our moment to take a deep breath, hold each others hand and savor the feelings of pure elation.

Romantic LA Wedding At Carondelet House

Romantic Weddings

Any wedding at LA’s Carondelet House is a feast for the eyes, but when you pair that with a bride who has not one but two show-stopping gowns, the wedding is all but guaranteed to be a forever favorite. Stephanie and Frank had Laura Izumikawa Photography and Joyce Kim Weddings bring their wedding vision to life, and we think you’re going to love the result!

From the bride, Stephanie: When we got engaged and started planning for our wedding, we knew it was important to have an intimate event at a unique venue with family and close friends present to celebrate with us. We came across Carondelet House in Los Angeles and fell head over heels the moment we walked in. It was different than the other weddings we were used to, and the exposed brick walls and vintage furniture were the perfect backdrop in setting the tone of our wedding. We loved the small courtyard and the pockets of the venue that had a lot of character and made it feel like an inviting home. We started piecing the vision together and decided that hiring a great wedding planner would help bring life to our ideas. Finding the right one wasn’t an easy task, but we brought Joyce Kim Weddings on board and she was able to cohesively pull together our vision of soft romance with hints of vintage.

Fast forward to the wedding day. We couldn’t believe how everything turned out because it was so much more beautiful than what both of us ever imagined. The venue was brimming with details – from the blooms in the flower arrangements, the smaller decorations at the sign-in and sweetheart tables, the dessert set-up that was overflowing with florals and filled with all of our favorite desserts, and to the escort gold-framed mirror with the white decal – all were exquisite!

Our wedding day flew by so quickly, but we can say that it was the most gorgeous and meaningful day of our lives. Having our loved ones celebrate our union was a blessing and we were even able to incorporate our two dogs in the photos since they’re family! We truly got the wedding that we wanted, and we’ll always be able to fondly remember back to that impeccable day.

Vintage Inspired Wedding in Downtown LA

Vintage Weddings

The second I saw these images from Monica and James’ wedding at LA’s Oviatt Penthouse, it occurred to me that I might just have a new favorite wedding venue. Rich with architectural details that are a nod to years ago, it’s a beautiful spot that’s sure to inspire any vintage-loving bride. Let’s Frolic Together and Rosebud Floral Design put together some incredible work to tell the couple’s love story, which includes a breathtaking first look on the rooftops of downtown LA!

From the photographer, Jasmine of Let’s Frolic Together: James and Monica’s charmingly Art Deco wedding was filled with delightful details that celebrated the past. The day began at the Los Angeles Athletic Club; this historic hotel set the perfect vintage tone for the day. Monica’s gorgeous Jenny Packman dress, her adorable shoes, the bride’s maids sweet pink frocks, it was all so splendid. I particularly loved the bride’s maids glittering chiffon capelets. On the rooftop of the Athletic Club with their reception venue in the distance, James and Monica saw each other for the first time. Surrounded by the skyscrapers of LA, it was an awesome mesh of history and modernity.

The Oviatt Penthouse provided a rich sense of gorgeous 1920s history, brimming with details from the past. From Monica’s sweet bouquet to the Italian fountains to the checkerboard dance floor the unique details added up to a beautiful story paying homage to the past. It was a true DIY affair as James and his groomsmen set everything up. I loved the giant marquee lights love sign and even when we got rained out during the reception everyone bound together and the energy of the party grew indoors. These dance maniacs were a joy to photograph and the wild day was wonderful from start to finish.

Colorful LA Wedding at The Fig House

Whimsical Weddings

Los Angeles’ The Fig House is undoubtedly one of our favorite new venues on the block, so you can imagine how excited we are to share this stunner of a wedding from Christine Farah Photography, CCL Weddings & Events, and The Vine’s Leaf. It’s jam-packed with color, geometric details, and great ideas (like the hangover kit for guests to take home), so let’s jump on in!

neutral bridesmaid dresses - photo by Christine Farah Photography http://ruffledblog.com/colorful-la-wedding-at-the-fig-house

From the bride, Jennie: We wanted something fun and lively, really a party atmosphere because that’s what a wedding is a big fun party. Fun. Bright. Colorful. Modern. Festive. Geometric. We didn’t have a theme really, but we wanted to work with what the venue already had to make it really seamless.

Bouquet recipe: I have really bad allergies, so we told our florist to keep the florals to little to no scent. They included orchids, hydrangea, ranunculus, lisianthus, and anemones.

Modern SmogShoppe Wedding with Fuchsia Accents

Modern Weddings

Fuchsia is a top pick when it comes to our favorite colors, so we were pretty excited when we saw this wedding from Wildflowers Photography, All You Need is Love Events, Krista Jon, and Archive Rentals. Amber and Chris had a day full of romantic details, gorgeous floral design, and cheeky touches, like the Justin Timberlake masks that were passed around for guests to wear. This is a day we won’t soon forget.

From the event stylists, All You Need is Love Events: When you have a wedding where there are two people that are as in love as well as super-creative as Amber and Chris, it was always going to be nothing short of spectacular. The bride and groom have phenomenal style and it showed in every aspect we created with them.

Amber and Chris had a vision for their day that intertwined a little bit of modern, a little bit of vintage, and a lot of bit of fun! Cutouts of Justin Timberlake may or may not have been involved. Every detail big and small was taken care of and with an all star cast of vendors, the evening was truly a dream. From the metal menus on the table by Mae Mae Paperie, delectable everything by Auntie Em’s, stunning florals and furniture from Archive Rentals, all captured by the amazing peeps at Wildflower Photography, all set to the back drop of the stunning Smog Shoppe venue, you truly had an evening that was perfect in every way. Oh and just to make it that more amazing, the bride surprised the groom with an Acapella Choir singing a medley from the couples favorite movie “Pitch Perfect”. It was aca-awesome!

Wedding Inspiration with Magnolia Leaves and Cotton

Wedding Design

Winter brings about some of the prettiest wedding decor, and this styled shoot from Tina Chiou Photography, Styled by TC, and The Bosky Dell is a perfect example. Taking magnolia leaves and blooms, mixing in a bit of cotton, and adding a stunning gown by Catherine Deane from BHLDN, this shoot makes us remember why we’re always excited to see the chillier months roll around.

From the photographer, Tina Chiou: I wanted to create a minimalist, modern with a touch of vintage and eco-friendly. I wanted it to have a wintery feel… so we went with the cool colors of grey, navy, green but also warm with rust and clean with white. The cake is very unique with the calligraphy written on the cake with a quote by John Green in his book The Fault in Our Stars. Can never go wrong with calligraphy! We had a couple different centerpiece designs. I just love the magnolia branch suspended above the lovely couple. It definitely brought nature indoors. You can have the earthy outdoor elements inside!

About the venue, there are so many different corners of the space that provide such a great backdrop for a great wedding. We utilized their black wall in front of the stairs because it emphasized the tablescape and how clean it looks. They had this beautiful exposed brick wall on the other side of the space and it gave an industrial but warm atmosphere. The gown was from BHLDN but designed by Watters and it’s amazing. It’s lightweight but embellished! It gives the illusion of a strapless dress without exposing too much as it has the transparent collar to also keep you secure and slightly warmer. The color of it was perfect! I loved how it worked so well with the rust tones and the bride’s hair.

The floral arrangements were done by The Bosky Dell. She has amazing taste and loves the minimal look. The arrangement with the tall vases had live raw cotton in them. They are still growing to this day! Very eco-friendly. We incorporated magnolia leaves and some faux magnolias. Could you tell?

Chic Wedding with Grey and Deep Red Accents

Modern Weddings

Steve Steinhardt

Modern, chic, masculine, and romantic – this Los Angeles wedding has it all in spades. Brian and Chad exchanged vows in a touching and intimate ceremony, and the couple brought on Steve Steinhardt to capture the day and Beth Helmstetter to style every bit to absolute perfection. We love the unique hanging seating chart with acrylic slides, and of course the colorful wedding cake surprise!

From the stylist, Beth Helmstetter: We absolutely loved working with Brian and Chad on their day. As soon as Prop 8 was overturned by the Supreme Court, Brian was on the phone with us and we hit the ground running. Their best friend works for Milk Studios and offered the space as the spot for the wedding. We couldn’t have been more excited! For their day, we went fresh, modern and masculine. We loved popping the deep red tones off of the natural graphite, marble and grays of the space. In the end, this made for one of our favorite weddings of the year.

Downtown Los Angeles Wedding

Caleb John Hill

We recently introduced you to a new favorite venue in Los Angeles, Elysian — and now we’re back to share another wedding in this stunning spot! Photographer Caleb John Hill and event stylist Megan Elise Events helped make Nicole and Caleb’s dream day a reality, and we can’t imagine a more beautiful result.

Downtown Los Angeles wedding - photo by Caleb John Hill http://ruffledblog.com/downtown-los-angeles-wedding

From the bride, Nicole: When Caleb and I started thinking about our wedding, we wanted to find a way to include our two main styles that encompass not only our taste but also our lifestyle. Caleb’s an electrical engineer with a love of the outdoors and I’m a graphic designer obsessed with flowers. We knew we had to combine these two and we came up with this mix of industrial and natural. We wanted to find a venue that was clean and modern on the inside juxtaposed with nature on the outside since we knew we wanted an outdoor/indoor wedding. We wanted every single aspect of our wedding to remind our guests of us, so we made sure everything was unique and a decision we made together.

The best way I can describe our wedding is industrial modern meets the great outdoors. We didn’t necessarily have a color scheme, although grey was always apart of our vision. We really wanted the natural aspect of the flowers and the plants of our venue to set the tone of the wedding and our colors complimented those nicely. Our colors ended up being grey, peach and muted purple. Once we picked The Elysian as our venue, we made all decisions based on imagining it all at our venue. Being a graphic designer, I designed our invitation suite as well as all of the signage, programs, and table decor. Our invitations had hand painted watercolor and hand-lettering with a sans-serif thicker font to give it a clean modern feel in the design while keeping the natural vibe through watercolor. I also included a geometric shape that we carried through the decor with handmade metal shapes hanging on the walls and for our photo booth backdrop and glass gold terrariums used on the cocktail and side tables. My father is a carpenter and contractor so he had the hand-lettering I used of our names for the invitations blown up and cut out of leaf patterned acrylic. We also had signs I hand-lettered for our coffee and ice cream stations and pointing to our photo booth. We added as many personal touches as we could. For instance, I also work at a cafe for a local coffee roaster and had them serve coffee at the wedding which made it so special to have my coworkers there! We also had signature bride and groom cocktails that we picked along with a full bar option.

Flower recipe: I’m obsessed with lavender and eucalyptus plants so those were a must in my bouquet. Like I said, I wanted every part of our wedding, including the flowers, to complement our venue and the overall vibe we were going for. When I met with my florist, I showed them multiple pictures with lavender and eucalyptus so they understood the look I wanted. From there on I let them make decisions since they’re the experts. My bouquet included peach garden roses that brought in a beautiful romantic feel along with queen anne’s lace, peony roses, rice flower, jasmine, spray roses and pulmosa greenery. The other arrangements had sonia roses, rosemary, and rice flower additions.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Although it’s been said many times, make your wedding what you want it to be! Caleb and I had a VERY specific vision for how we wanted our wedding to be and not only aesthetically. We had been to countless weddings and had critiqued what worked well and not so well and used that knowledge to make what we feel was the best combination of all things that worked well. We wanted our wedding to embody us, who we are now and who we want to be as a now married couple. We chose to keep some traditions and change others up, for instance, we switched where we stood during the ceremony so I could see my girls behind my about to be husband and he could see his guys behind me. That made the ceremony even more special! We had multiple people tell us after the wedding how much the wedding embodied who we were and how every detail was so personalized towards us. Even though it can be overwhelming, think through EVERYTHING. Hire a wedding planner, ours was the absolute best and she understood our vision. Photography and music were a huge pieces to our puzzle so we hired a photographer who we felt would capture our wedding the way we would’ve if we could! Our photographer Caleb had the perfect artistic and journalism eye we wanted. We hired the best DJ we could find who never allowed people to leave the dance floor once they started. Work together and make this day about you, because people want to celebrate the two of you!
