Personal touches, plenty of good food, and a double first look were the hallmarks of Spencer + Linda’s classically lovely union. You might recognize Spencer and Linda since we shared their gorgeous engagement photos (and the story of how they met!) a few months ago. If you didn’t catch those photos, you might just recognize Spencer as he was the former drummer of Panic! at the Disco! (and yep, his best man was Brendon Urie along with Brendon’s wife Sarah who was the maid of honor!) And speaking of those two, we still love looking at their wedding photos from a few years ago! :)
Ok, but back to this gorgeous couple – Linda + Spencer – for today! The two were determined to create a day that truly reflected their relationship, beginning with a backdrop of deep greenery at Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. Tables were set with locally-made treats, Italian antipasti, and a dinner + dessert bar (including churros and strawberry shortcake push-pops, YUM) to keep guests full all night!
Linda tells us, We wanted to make sure that our wedding really represented us as a couple, not just be a collection of cool things we saw at other people’s weddings. We love food and we wanted everyone to have the best dinner ever, so Wolfgang Puck put together a menu of all the things we love!
onelove Photography was there to capture all the romantic details:
I loved that we did a simultaneous first look - I didn't know what Spencer was wearing, so It was my first time seeing him, too! We stood on opposite sides of a huge pillar and turned around at the same time. So much anticipation was leading up to that first look so I'm glad we both got to experience it the same way.
I literally had tunnel vision until after the ceremony was over - I don't remember seeing anything or anybody else except Spencer as I was walking down the aisle. We wrote our own vows, and those vows are my favorite part of the day (I still read them every day). We wrote them on paper and had them framed afterward.
Linda looked ever the classic bride in Vera Wang.
We love this classic bridal bouquet by Seed Floral!
How creative is this: Spencer + Linda wed on a palindrome number, 6-18-16, so they incorporated mirrors throughout the ceremony to hint at the reflection of the day!
We are looooving this use of greenery at the reception! The couple decided on a color palette of black, white, and emerald, then called on copper details for a stylish pop.
Hello, dream cake! Quite the delicious statement from Superfine Bakery!
When we first got engaged it was very easy to get overwhelmed by all the cute, novelty things you see on Pinterest. You save every single thing you see because it all looks so good! But what is good for (specifically) you?
Several things went wrong before the wedding, but Spencer was good about reminding me that literally nobody but us would know - everybody else just sees a great wedding!
Don't be unmovable. The things I thought I absolutely needed at my wedding ended up not looking great together, so we changed quite a few things. For instance, circular tables ended up looking better with the venue's reception layout than long banquet tables (which I originally wanted). I'm glad we were able to see that and evolve on our choices.
What a beautiful day! Congratulations, Spencer + Linda!
