Real Wedding: Lulu + Billy’s Bright Modern Wedding

I love the bright colors Lulu + Billy choose for their modern wedding at the Smog Shoppe in Culver City. And Lulu’s bright pink Christian Louboutin heels? So fun. I also love the collection of mismatched J Crew bridesmaids dresses she picked for her girls. Thanks to Kelly at Kelly Melissa Photography for sending me this fun wedding!

From Kelly, As a photographer, the best thing I can ever hope for in a wedding is that the couple will step out of the “cookie cutter” wedding box, and completely personalize their wedding to make it very THEM. And, oh boy, was this wedding VERY Lauren & Billy. All of the details were executed perfectly.

Lulu was sweet enough to send some thoughts from the day also.

Favorite Memory of the Day: How unbelievably happy we were. It was so amazing how every detail of our wedding actually came to life. Every aspect of our wedding, from the guest, food, flowers,to the amazing people working, was perfect…There was one time I was sipping champagne before the ceremony started watching on the big screen and listening to the Marie Antoinette Soundtrack and movie playing…at that moment I knew everything was right, that I needed to remember this moment, it was perfect. …if they say perfection doesn’t exist, not on this day!

Any advice for those planning now? Listen to your heart. Be creative and think outside of the box. Stay true to yourself. Make sure every detail of your wedding represents the two of you, because it really is about you. And make sure to have the best time ever!

Thanks so much Lulu + Billy for sharing your day with us!

  1. Love the maid's dresses, not matching but complimentary. The SmogShoppe seems to be a hot spot in LA, I have seen several very unique, personal, and creative weddings on the blogs that were held there.

  18. i have been using the picture of the bridesmaids dresses as my inspiration but have been coming up empty handed finding the right ones. All are too casual or the wrong colours. If you have any suggestions or could tell me where these ones were found that would be very helpful!! thank you! :)
