Real Wedding: Jenn + Josh’s New Year’s Day Smog Shoppe Wedding

I am so excited to share this wedding today! The talented James Christianson (you may remember him from this lakeside wedding) sent me this and I knew I would love it since it was at one of my favorite venues – The Smog Shoppe in Culver City (it’s green also!) This one is stunning. A gorgeous couple, beautiful dress, succulents, and great details. I asked Jenn to tell me a bit about her planning. ” We tried to incorporate as many handmade/DIY elements in our day. We love the city and earth and are fond of a blend of the two.. We also tried to be as “green” as possible and our venue really set a good foundation for what we were aiming for.”

Thanks so much for sharing these beautiful photos (there are some GORGEOUS portraits of the couple – Jenn is stunning – so love that dress!!) and the details of your day. Congrats Jenn and Josh! Check out James’ Blog for more of his beautiful photos.
