When your bride is a graduate from FIDM and has an eye for fashion, you know her wedding is going to be beautiful and very detailed with personal touches! Nicole and Brandon were referred to our team from one of our past couples and we couldn't wait to assist them on their wedding day. Nicole and Brandon met while working at the same fashion company in LA's fashion district. You could tell that they both had a passion for fashion just based on their own personal styles. I mean, check out her stunning BHLDN wedding dress! Nicole and Brandon had their wedding at SmogShoppe in Los Angeles. This was our team's first time at the venue and it was absolutely amazing. The ceremony area needed very minimal decor since the venue already had a stunning backdrop with a variety of greenery.
This was our first time coordinating a wedding without a wedding party and it was beautiful to see just the bride and groom standing up in the center. We love how they had bubbles for guests to blow during their recessional as they exited as the new Mr. and Mrs. Max City BBQ provided appetizers for the guests and Mia's Martini stirred up some delicious cocktails during cocktail hour. Jay from City Flowers did an amazing job, as always, decorating the reception room with gorgeous garlands and centerpieces. James from Valentine Entertainment did an amazing job entertaining the guests with music and games. When it was time for dinner, all of Nicole and Brandon's guests got to choose a variety of BBQ dishes and tasty sides that Max City BBQ prepared. Oh how we could go for some baby back ribs and a side of mac and cheese right now! Yum! The dessert bar was also buffet style and guests got to enjoy a variety of delicious sweets such as donuts, madeleines, and mini cupcakes. Nicole and Brandon wanted their guests to be well fed and entertained and they did just that! Kary and Tae from, The Times We Have, did an amazing job capturing their wedding day so beautifully. It was so hard to pick just a few to show but below are some of our favorites. Enjoy!!
