Stained Glass Wedding Inspiration at The Fig House

fig house styled shoot

Today’s unique styled shoot takes place at a brand new Los Angeles venue called The Fig House. It’s the brainchild of Steve Fortunato (of LA’s Room Forty) and was designed by Emily Henderson (of HGTV Secrets from a Stylist). To celebrate the opening, Jesi Haack Designs pulled together a beautiful editorial that focused + expanded on the pretty colors + design elements that were already decorating the space thanks to Emily. Inspired by all of the stained glass throughout, that became her motif for the day. You’ll see it artfully represented just about everywhere! And lovely details like the lush, wild florals by Honey + Poppies and the creative hand-painted paper goods have us totally swooning over it all. And we’re sure you will be, too! Here’s a bit more about the venue from Emily Henderson:

It’s 1920’s Hollywood Deco meets 1980’s party, meets 2014 Highland Park. Every piece of lounge furniture is one of a kind, designed by yours truly, with 50 pieces of original art by 12 different local artists (curated by The Jealous Curator), and some custom stained glass windows (by the world famous Judson Studios) that will make modern church goers weep with neon joy. In short: It’s Gatsby meets Any Warhol meets Marie Antoinette.

Sounds pretty rad, right?! And now you get to see it for yourself in all its glory! :) Big thanks to Woodnote Photography for these super fun photos!

The octagon tables added a fun modern edge to the classically lush table scape, and each place setting featured a hand painted illustration for the dinner menu. Such a cool idea.

Retro-Woodsy Mountain Wedding: Elisabeth + Mike

bride and groom

Elisabeth + Mike are an adorable, fun-loving couple who’s style is a little quirky and filled with personality. They love all things vintage + retro and wanted to infuse that nostalgic goodness into their handmade Nor-Cal mountain wedding. They chose a vibrant color palette of mustard yellow + mint green and DIY’d every last detail – big and small! They also incorporated nods to their extensive travels and Mike’s Mexican heritage in the form of thoughtful details + delicious cuisine. Sounds like a wedding that would have been such a blast to attend! :)

From Elisabeth, Our main goal was to make the day a fun and memorable experience for our families and guests – we really wanted our wedding to be a great time and feel like a celebration for everyone involved.  We tried to add in a lot of details about Mike and I as a couple so that it would also feel intimate.  We didn’t really have a strict theme, but the general idea behind our decorations was vintage/travel/rustic.  Mike and I lived in Dubai and have traveled to about 20 countries together so we tried to incorporate that passion into our decorations by using old maps and vintage travel postcards for our table numbers.  Our venue, The Brazil Room, is located right in the middle of the woods, so we thought that rustic would be the most appropriate type of decorations so that we weren’t fighting against the beautiful scenery of our venue!

Thanks so much to onelove photography for sharing these super lovely images with us today + congratulations to Elisabeth + Mike!

It’s difficult to choose the most memorable moment of the day, but I loved our “first look” – it was a great to have a private moment together before the whirlwind of the day really started. We were able to just smile at each other and feel the excitement of the day.

Ok how much do you love the playful bridal party attire?! The ladies picked out their own dresses (and some even hand-dyed their frocks to be the perfect shade of yellow!) and Elisabeth’s “Men of Honor” wore super stylish mustard pants!

Vintage postcards + no. 2 pencils (since Elisabeth is a school teacher!) were left at each place setting to encourage guests to jot down their well wishes for the duo. And the succulent centerpieces were hand-grown and potted by Elisabeth + Mike!

As soon as I got engaged, a friend told me, “No matter what, you can’t please everyone, so just make the day exactly what you want it to be”. That was great advice for me, because I definitely try to make everyone happy. If that is your goal throughout the planning process, you are going to add an incredible amount of stress to the process!
