Industrial Los Angeles Wedding
Modern and industrial, this Los Angeles wedding photographed by Alders Photography gave the bride and groom total creative freedom. Everything from the ceremony backdrop to the cake topper were composed of raw materials, while hints of yellow brightened up the space making for one very unique and handcrafted celebration.
From the bride, Taryn: We wanted a venue that would complement our modern/industrial style – a blank canvas with no creative limitations that we could completely customize. Helms Daylight Studio fit the bill. High ceilings, wood beams, exposed metal, ceremony and reception at one location, and total creative freedom.
We built the backdrop, stage, photo booth, centerpieces, dessert stand, cake topper, and designed the print collateral. We displayed our art pieces on the entrance wall of the venue. Our theme was modern/industrial. We wanted to incorporate raw materials (natural wood, metal), and our colors were primarily grey and yellow. We chose a subtle grey with a pop of yellow, because we wanted our unique design and custom-built features to outshine the colors. There were many personal family touches: the bride’s grandmother performed the ceremony, the bride’s late grandfather’s necktie held her bouquet together, and the groom’s late grandmother’s salt & pepper shakers (her trademark) were on each table.
Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Don’t settle for mediocre. Fall in love with your venue and customize each detail to fit your unique style. We made it a rule to invite only people we both know so neither of us had to introduce ourselves to guests at our own wedding. Get ready for the best day of your life and take in every moment, because it goes by way too fast!

What a fun way to incorporate industrial elements into a wedding!
Love the very cute program and the clever wooden ‘vases’. Great job and beautiful pictures! Congrats! 🙂
I am loving the sterking sil er marcasite dangle pearl pendant. What a beautiful classic piece.
What a beautiful bride!!!!
So much fun to see a wedding totally different ! So proud and happy to have been part of it.
Thank you so much Ruffled, for the feature! Always a pleasure to grace your pages! Taryn and Kyle were some of the most amazing clients. Creative in the details and owned their wedding day, not conforming to what anyone else wanted, but what was truly them! Hope this gives ideas to future brides and grooms!
The beautiful celebration of Love with My grandson Kyle and his lovely wife (my new granddaughter) Taryn. I was so very glad to be part of their memories.
Their unique selection of items to the ceremony and reception were amazing. It truly showed who these two young adults are – always remembering they beyond to our Lord and Savior.
What an honor to be featured on Ruffled! Thank you for letting us relive the greatest day of our lives through this blog post!!
This was a beautiful wedding that really stood for the kind of couple these 2 are. As a bridesmaid in this wedding and the sister of the groom I can say that this wedding was lots of hard work. Without the help of family and friends it wouldn’t be possible. I am so glad to know these two people and to be apart of their lives. I loved to modern, open feel, and all the special touches that stood out. It is important to make your wedding “your day” and to create an environment that represents who you are as a couple. Taryn and Kyle pulled that off perfectly!
What a great advice!!! I think that way too! congrats on your beautiful marriage!
