Modern Gatsby-Inspired Wedding at The Fig House: Carla + David

Modern Gatsby Wedding

Today’s stunning wedding at The Fig House in Los Angeles, captured by the amazing Logan Cole, is just about as dreamy as it gets. Combining an old-world feel of the Gatsby era with stylish, modern details reflective of the two of them, Carla + David produced a setting that’s sure to inspire many of you currently planning your own wedding day. There were gorgeous protea + peony laced centerpieces (crafted by the team at Birch and Bone), safari-inspired black + white textiles and craft cocktails + gourmet eats that were surely worth remembering. And by enlisting the talents of Orange Blossom Special Events, Carla + David were able to achieve the impeccably styled, sophisticated wedding they dreamed of, all the while spending an amazing night making memories with their family + closest friends.

From the bride + groom, We pulled in elements that had personal meaning to us: A customized ceremony with friends and family participating, decor that nodded to Carla’s South African roots, moments alone to just take it all in and a desire to buck the conventional (no cake, no bridal bouquet, no garter toss.) And as we always say, we love it when couples do what feels right for them!

Our Advice To Those Planning Now

Hang on to the most important things that matter to each of you. For David, it was a personalized ceremony and creating a fun environment for our guests. For me, it was all about the food and making sure we had time with friends and family, so doing a first look was key to get a lot of the picture taking out of the way early.
