Real Wedding: Aubrie + Josh’s Up Inspired Wedding

Aubrie + Josh are old souls. Everyone that knows them knows that and I love that they were able to incorporate this “old love” into their wedding. They did this with the concept of growing old together and still being up for adventure in the many years to come. Sounds familiar to a movie that was popular last year, right? Yep, they were also inspired by snippets from the animated film “Up!” Aubrie and Josh borrowed the colorful balloons and even an “Up” themed cake. They wrote their own vows which according to Lehua Noelle (the photographer) were “incredibly beautiful about growing old together, trust me, there were no dry eyes at this weddingThis wedding was incredibly sweet and the fun details were simple yet poignant. They were the right amount of detail, not too much, something most brides can handle, while being fun and striking.”

The wedding took place at the Marvimon – a hidden gem located in Downtown LA. It’s a tiny garden set in the middle of the city which is such a great contrast + perfect for a wedding.
