The Loft on Pine in Long Beach, California is one of our very favorite venues and we’re pretty sure that Leigh + Matt’s magical wedding is about to reveal why. The space is vast with rad architectural details, ready for couples to bring in their own personal style + create a day that’s reflective of them. L + M worked with Bash Please + Moon Canyon, so it’s safe to say the details + florals we’re crazy good. But aside from the amazing design elements that made this wedding unique, the bride + groom wanted their focus to be on creating a fun, memorable night shared with all their loved ones. Here’s more about that from Leigh:
We wanted to make it as much of a celebration as possible and we did that the best possible way we knew how. The biggest part of that was sharing our love with our family and friends. We wanted to spend as much time with them as possible throughout the whole event which even meant attending much of our cocktail hour. Another special touch was having a family style dinner. We both grew up eating with family and friends this way so we knew this would be special to incorporate this into our celebration. It was such a great feeling to hear our friends and family had just as a fantastic time as we did and that they felt this celebration truly represented who we are as a couple.
Thanks so much to Hugh Forte for the amazing images and congrats to Leigh + Matt on a gorgeous day!
We love Matt’s suit from Klein Epstein & Parker. (And fun secret embroidered message below!)
The bridesmaids each hand-picked a floral print dress that were hand-picked by each bridesmaid with no dress being from the same designer! They go together so well, don’t you think?
