Typography Wedding Inspiration

typography wedding

This Southern California team shares a deep love of literature + typography – just like me! Beautiful fonts and text inspired this shoot styled by Kristeen LaBrot of Kristeen LaBrot Events, and shot by Sara Allen of onelove photography. The idea was to explore the more energetic side of wedding styling with bright colors (some neon!), an abundance of fresh flowers, and a feeling of pure happiness throughout the event, all accented with letters, ampersands, and lots of love. Monk Space (located in downtown LA) is one of the latest locations available for weddings with an industrial-pretty vibe. Exposed brick walls, very old advertising signs painted over the brick in parts, and trap-door skylights add to the atmosphere with just the right amount of charm.

And wait until you see the wedding dress by Beane & Company! It looks like a piece of art with its bodice made completely out of paper, and the skirt of peau de soie and tulle. Beane and Co. made the sparkling ampersand headpiece to complete the look. The models for the shoot are real-life husband and wife, the sweet Allyson + Rob. :)

To help lighten and brighten the space, Gilly Flowers created bold, romantic bouquets and centerpieces, as well as sculpted huge quotation marks out of fresh flowers to hang on the wall behind the sweetheart table. I am in major love with the bouquet which uses poppies, tulips, roses and more – so, so gorgeous!

And last, but certainly not least, the beautiful cakes by Superfine Bakery. This nine-cake set is Superfine’s new take on the monogram. “Why have just your initials on a small plaque or topper when you can have your names spelled out in cake?” says Andrea Boudewijn of Superfine. Each cake is adorned with a green sugar letter spelling out the couple’s names, accented by sugar poppies, peonies, sweet peas and ranunculus.
