Laid Back DIY Wedding in the Los Angeles Hills

Today, we are so elated to be sharing this fun wedding in Los Angeles! If you are yearning for a summer wedding, these two lovebirds did a stellar job at creating a fun atmosphere well into the night. We loved Kyle and Natalia’s vintage wedding theme, and all of their fun DIY wedding decor details.

From the Bride:

The inspiration for our wedding was our hometown- Los Angeles. We knew early on in the wedding planning process that we would have an LA wedding. We met in Los Angeles ten years ago during our final semester in college. We’ve always viewed the city as an extension of our relationship, and wanted our friends and family to share in the closeness we felt to the city.

We were looking to find an outdoor venue that felt unique yet also represented our laid-back vibe. Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook, a public park in Culver City, had just opened a new area, and we would be the first couple to get married there!

Seeing as our venue was a public park, it would truly need to be a DIY wedding. We brought in everything from the bathrooms to the blankets our guests sat on. We relied heavily on our incredibly talented friends and family to be part of our event for hair & makeup, flowers, decor projects, music, comedic toasts and even officiating. Having the involvement of those closest to us furthered the importance and intimacy of the event.

Luxurious Pink Grand Canyon Wedding

Today, we are tickled pink to be sharing this epic desert wedding. Mai and PJ were married married in Scottsdale Arizona, at a beautiful Catholic church. Their reception party was held at The Four Seasons hotel, inside one of the expansive ballrooms. Our favorite part of this unique wedding though, was when PJ and Mai went off into the Grand Canyon for some once-in-a-lifetime wedding photography.

From the white laser cut invitations that look like lace, to the whimsical soft pink bridesmaid dresses, this whole occasion is swoon-worthy. The quiet desert scenery is ultra romantic, and a perfect spot for an intimate moment between the new bride and groom. Mai’s extra-long wedding veil may just take your breath away; and her flower bouquet filled with stunning succulents isn’t too shabby either!

Fairytale Purple Wedding Inspiration

Today, we are so overjoyed to be sharing this angelic, lavender wedding inspiration with you all.

If you have longed for that perfect fairytale wedding, you may have just stumbled onto some of the best inspiration yet. Complete with purple wedding invitations pressed with gold foil, an elegant tiara, and bright pink florals, we can’t stop relishing the beauty of this styled shoot.
