Brides from all over Los Angeles gathered to participate in this alternative to a traditional bridal show. The NotWedding is a "fake" wedding where brides get a first hand look at how a wedding flows and it gives them a chance to see wedding vendors in their element... at work making FABULOUSNESS happen at a wedding.
Candice Benjamin Photography provided these amazing shots of this incredible event. The "bride and groom" have been married for 8 years. On this night, they renewed their vows in an emotional ceremony. Their close friends stood in as their bridesmaids and groomsmen and their super cute daughters were the flower girls. My favorite part of the night was watching their little princesses twirl and twirl in their little tutus! What cuties!
Lot 613. I loved this space. And the food, provided by their in-house caterer, Premiere Events, was phenomenal! We kicked it off with pre-ceremony cocktails and were led right into an emotional and sweet ceremony as the couple renewed their vows.
Smitten on Paper as a jumping off point for our tabletop designs. SO GORGEOUS!
LOVE AND LIGHT:
For the traditional bride, I created a table design utilizing a white lantern surrounded by a floral wreath. We dipped votive cups in gold glitter and placed a single hot pink garden rose in each. A satin white crinkle linen was placed on the tables to provide a little texture but allow the colors to pop.
For the whimsical bride, we handcrafted a couple of super cute solar-powered marquee signs. These signs light up at night and were quite the show stopper. We wrapped votives in vellum paper and embellished them with magenta washi tape and placed a tiny little gold succulent in each. A white satin crinkle linen graced the table for additional texture and visual interest. Each chair was adorned with a cute LOVE or KISS bunting.
Brides who love a more vintage or old library theme will love our next table design. Using owl vases and words of wisdom, we infused a look that has both feminine and masculine touches. We created table runners and chair garland made out of vintage book pages. Books were wrapped in grosgrain ribbon and banner signs were strategically placed around the decor with the wise words found in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.
The book pages table runners, chair decoration, solar powered marquee signs and bunting are all available to custom order in our Fabulously Wed Etsy shop! Hop on over and pay us a visit!
