Ok, LA couples still looking for a rad venue! There is a new venue here in Los Angeles that I’m super excited to share today – in fact, this is the first wedding held at the space. The Palihouse Holloway in West Hollywood was the perfect location for Melissa + Jon with a sweet rooftop (perfect for the ceremony!) and a courtyard space that is mix of outdoors and indoors perfect for their reception. Today’s wedding shows off what a rad venue it is and with it designed by the talented duo at Bash, Please you know you won’t want to miss this one! Melissa + Jon wanted to make sure their wedding had the perfect mix of both their personalities with lots of little details. Love the ultra modern feel of their day with the white, black + yellow color palette – and wait until you see their special ceremony backdrop! Pretty stunning. :) Big thanks to Aaron Shintaku for the photos and congrats to Melissa + Jon!
Our first look. After about 48 hours of nonstop wedding planning activity, we’d both been in the zone, decision making, and working like crazy – apart most of the time. So it was amazing when the smoke finally cleared and we both saw each other’s best friend again. It was in that sweet moment that we knew all of the hard work and planning was worth every minute.
Loving those bridesmaids dresses and their bright yellow shoes! So fun! :)
Fun napkins with cute facts about the lovely couple!
Trust your instincts. Make a few decisions on a whim.
