I am so excited to be able to finally share Christin and Elbert's fun and modern wedding with you all! We are so lucky to have it featured on the fabulous Wedding Chicks blog today, so please head on over there to see some more pictures and the cool post! :) I am over the moon to be able to have this badge on our blog now!!
And for some behind the scenes info:
Christin and Elbert celebrated their love with an intimate wedding at the Smog Shoppe and chose to prioritize the venue and photography in their budget - great choices! So, they booked the uber-fresh and fabulous Image is Found to capture their wedding day and it was a dream working with this husband and wife duo! I will let their stellar pictures speak for themselves!
The color palette consisted of neutral hues of grays and bamboo browns with white and pops of fuchsia pink. While they wanted to maintain the eco-friendly, succulent love of the Smog Shoppe in their wedding, they were careful to stay true to a clean and modern aesthetic. I was excited to do so since I feel that so many people choose to go with a more rustic styling at this venue. Christin is an architect and Elbert is a musician, so the wedding naturally reflected their backgrounds in art and design. Christin and Elbert were one of my couples planning their wedding from out of town, so they entrusted me with a lot of the details and design aspects of their wedding - which was SO much fun!!
Christin decided to keep the tables bare with no linens and considered using paper placemats but followed my suggestion and ended up sewing fabric placemats with the help of her friends. Aren't they the perfect accent on the tables?! I love how they complemented the colors in her simple, yet sophisticated, arrangements - provided by the talented Cindy Park of Floral Elements. Cindy and I met several times to go over the vision for their florals, and she could not have done a better job at bringing that vision to life! It is hard to imagine that she didn't even meet the bride and groom once before the wedding, because the flowers were just that perfect!
Miniature potted succulents doubled as escort "cards" and favors for guests and were a nod to the succulent wall in front of which they were married. Our team designed and created each card tag, potted each succulent and spray painted the terra cotta pots white to lend a more modern feel.
Guests dined on a casual dinner of street tacos topped off with a delicious Southern chocolate and banana cream cake from Vanilla Bakeshop. Yum!
