Intimate Garden Wedding in Downtown LA with Vibrant Colors

This colorful wedding in Downtown LA is brimming with vibrant colors. Lively pinks and deep reds match the glow of the bride’s cheeks as her excitement shines through in every photo by Shelly Anderson Photography. This jet-setting couple met in Dubai, engaged in Paris, and got married in Downtown LA. With the modern feel of Redbird LA, Vanessa and Raphy created their dream wedding with the help of Nicole George Event Planning & Design, and these stunning colors made for the modern garden wedding of our dreams.

From Kathleen of Nicole George Event Planning & DesignVanessa and Raphy have had a whirlwind romance to say the least. From meeting in Dubai 4 years ago, to being a long distance couple over the years, (Vanessa in Canada and Raphy in London) to getting engaged in Paris, these two were just meant to be!

They decided that a destination wedding was the best fit to bring their international families together and there is no better escape then sunny Southern California! Southern California plays an important roll in both Vanessa and Raphy’s families and their love story, thus it was important to add a little SoCal flair with their favorite LA-based chocolate bars, bright spring-time florals, and a cool urban location to get the vibe just right.

It was an intimate gathering of 70 of their closest friends and family so they wanted to ensure that everyone enjoyed the full LA experience. Redbird LA in Downtown Los Angeles was the perfect venue tocombine classy, modern, and organic aesthetics with their edgy and modern personalities. The beautiful architecture, outdoor spaces, and intimate nooks created the perfect intimate setting in the midst of the hustle and bustle of downtown LA. Redbird offers a culinary experience which was also a very important aspect as much of the menu was custom created for their tastes.

Instead of a traditional Photo Booth, we worked with our amazing photographer, Shelly Anderson, to host a more sophisticated portrait session as a favor for each guest. Our talented floral designer, Lark Farnum Design, perfectly understood Vanessa’s vision of a colorful and refreshing spring palette which highlighted the beauty of the outdoor garden in all of the right ways. The design felt lush, natural, and sweet combined with a modern and elegant family style setting under the market lights and olive trees of Redbird’s back yard.
