Stephanie and Scott planned on a type of wedding celebration to be stylish and fun while showcasing their 2 different cultures. Stephanie is half American, half Koran while Scott is originally from New Zealand and they held their wedding in an unusual LA warehouse location which also represented their other passions in life as artists. As soon as you’ll be able to check out their pics, you’ll be glad to see that they were able to make a exceptional job in having a meaningful and stunning event! I can’t help myself but to be obsesses with the gold and ivory colors palette which helped in giving off a modern appeal while the hints of green shades highlighted the floral arrangements that were made for this day. And don’t miss out on their special photo booth backdrop which was carefully made by the groom himself and even the paper lanterns dipped in gold that decorated the entire reception area. There’s a lot of beautiful ideas to be inspired of!
From the bride… We did our best in incorporating elements that were truly us. Scott is a graphic designer and illustrator by trade and I am a fashion designer. Scott illustrated the signage, match-boxes, photo booth, napkins, invitations, and etc. I’m used to having flowers all around as my mother once worked as a florist. I also want to use fabrics that represent my enthusiasm for fashion. I used a lot of those fabrics at the altar and utilized it to divide some sections of our ceremonial venue. By having these personalized touches, we were able to signify who we are as individuals and as a couple.
Thanks you very much Bryan Miller for capturing these incredible images of the wedding and sharing it to us and best wishes to Stephanie and Scott!
Stephanie had this Jeffery Campbell copper shoe at the wedding and it made her look interestingly beautiful!
And I just love the idea of having the boys made a stopover at the Handsome Coffee Roasters and had their pre-ceremony chill-out.
The LA warehouse which their wedding was held was located at an area with full of artistic-inspired buildings which served some of the backdrop for these photos.
And here’s a glimpse of their gorgeous paper lanterns…
And of course, how can you resist admiring this layered fabric backdrop which Stephanie created for the ceremony? It’s really signified the bride’s ‘passion’ for fashion and it fits to the brick wall background as well.
Our choice of music – Processional: “Ends of the Earth” by Lord Huron, Recessional: “I’ll be Your Man” by The Black Keys, First Dance: “I Found You” by Alabama Shakes
We placed a small golden sheep at every table setting to give a nod to Scott’s New Zealand (Kiwi) origin. Not only it became as one of the coolest decorations at the wedding but it also gave a warm and homely feel to all the Kiwi visitors we had on this day. We want to infuse both of our cultures and it we did! Like the food that we served which comprised of Mini Tacos to symbolize Southern Cal and the Lamb Sliders which resembled New Zealand.
Our most memorable part of the wedding – Stephanie: We slipped out in the middle of the reception and took Sophia with us and had our couple photos outside under the beautiful evening sky. This moment also served as a break for us to soak everything in and it all had my favorite photos of the wedding too!
Scott: That would have to be our first dance. Stef and I were doing a slow-dance and I was looking all around to all the people that we both cared about. I was so happy that they all came to show their love and support and it made me wondered what I could have possibly done to deserve having these people around.
Wedding advice – Make sure to incorporate you personal touches on every setting and make a timeframe of the things to do and what needed to be done before the big day arrives. We were working on a tight budget, but lucky for us we still managed to find a way to work things around (example: shopping around for the thing we needed, creating the napkins and ties, and cost cutting on table elements). Your wedding is great time to ask your family and friends a favor too! And in response to that all they need is to be there at your wedding day to show their love and support for the two of you which I know that most of them are more than willing to give it to you!
