Wedding Recap: Amanda and Jacob

I had an amazing time a couple of weeks ago coordinating the wedding of Amanda and Jacob.  Their wedding was held at the Huron Substation in Los Angeles, which was a new venue for me.  I loved everything about the venue, from the exposed brick to the outdoor ceremony space.  Plus, the venue manager was extremely helpful and very laid back (which was definitely in keeping with the vibe of this wedding).  Amanda was one of those brides that I rarely heard from after booking.  She had all the details of her day figured out and really just needed me to come in and execute her plans.  Everything was labeled (yay!) and she was detailed in her set up requests (and gave me pics, which is always a good idea).  And while she had her plans and her ideas, she was very relaxed about the schedule and the flow of the wedding, which made for an awesome party for the guests.  Here are some highlights from the big day!

This was the guest book and gift table, which was located inside the front door of the space.  They had guests find their birthday on the calendars and sign their names (which is a brilliant idea). I was a big fan of the art deco calendar!

Amanda's idea for centerpieces turned out just beautiful.  There were a variety of bottles in all shapes and sizes and Amanda did the flowers herself.  The lace table runners were provided by her mother in law and the mercury votive holders added just the right amount of glitz.  The wood tables belong to the venue and they really complemented the look of the wedding.

This huge chandelier is one of the highlights of the space.

Amanda made these flags for the guests to wave at the end of the ceremony.

Providing guests with cocktails before the ceremony is becoming more and more of a trend and I have to say, I am totally on board!  It really sets the tone for a fun evening.

I am in love with this outdoor ceremony space (which was also the cocktail space, and later just a general hang out area).  Their ceremony was short and sweet, and very personal. (Sorry for the blurry iphone pic!)

The ceremony space also held the oh so awesome candy bar at the end of the night.

And this was a dancing crowd!  Seriously, some of the best wedding dancing I have ever seen!  These guests had the moves.

I had an amazing time working with both Amanda and Jacob and I was so happy to get to help make their beautiful vision come to life!
