When you get not one, but two fantastic photographers to capture your day and are under the stylish guidance of Sweet Emilia Jane, there’s no guessing that your wedding will knock some socks off. Sarah and Charlie are a lovely, bookish couple who live in Los Angeles and wanted their day to reflect their love, interests and styles. We’re lucky to have the designer herself walk us through some of the details.
From the designer. We were lucky enough to have two of my absolutely favorite photographers. Noa of Feather Love captured the sweet ceremony. The ceremony in the Marston House and the intimate reception at Old Venice Restaurant were the perfect venues for the old world European garden wedding with New England flair that Sarah + Charlie envisioned.
Jenna of Flutter Glass Photography caught all the little details, heartwarming toasts and rocking dance party at the reception.
As transplants from the east coast, Sarah wanted to include elements that were reminiscent of her Pennsylvania childhood. Her mom collected old milk bottles from various farms near their home which I filled with orange, burgundy and peach flowers for the centerpieces. Guests feasted on a traditional Italian dinner followed by an assortment of of the yummiest Italian pastries I have ever had.
Both Sarah + Charlie are avid readers and we wanted to incorporate vintage books into the decor.We were able to use a lot from their own collection. We named tables after their favorite authors paired with a quote from their favorite books.
This was by far the best wedding I have ever attended. It was so unique and perfectly represented Sarah and Charlie as a couple and as individuals.
