This Couple Married Under a Rainbow of Florals in Los Angeles

Wes Anderson meets Frida Kahlo Wedding

There’s no limit of inspiration you could draw from the Grass Room in Los Angeles. This building has lived many lives in its century of use; as a fish + oyster company, an ice cream factory, and a commercial site for far east imports. This quirky history, along with their mutual love for ocean tide pools, is what ultimately led Christina + Shmuel to choose this whimsical wedding venue.

Christina shares a bit about their wedding planning vision: We both love the ocean and tide pooling. At the same time, we wanted our wedding to feel magical and light-hearted. I found some inspirational photos and sent them to Inessa, our florist, and told her to be creative!

And magical it is! The planning + design talents at Feathered Arrow helped C + S celebrate their colorful wedding with dried floral elements, exotic fruit + thoughtful decor. A mystical wedding from start to finish!

Our Favorite Memory From The Wedding

Walking down the aisle holding Shmuel's hand and seeing all of our guests for the first time. It was so wonderful to share that moment with him. I also loved breaking my own glass at the end of our ceremony! The groom Shmuel's favorite memory was seeing Christina in her dress for the first time.

Christina tells us how she chose her Grace Loves Lace wedding gown: I tried on a bunch of dresses and couldn’t quite find “the one”. Grace Loves Lace was awesome enough to bring back a retired design for me. I actually hadn’t even seen it before it arrived at my door! I was a little stressed out by their no alterations policy, but it ended up fitting perfectly!
