Happy Tuesday, you guys! We hope you had a great Labor Day weekend, and that you’re soaking up the last few weeks of summer! We’re ready for another gorgeous week here at GWS, and we’re kicking things off with Haley + Austin’s stunning urban-chic wedding captured by Tiffany J Photography. Besides being a crafty + creative duo (they both have backgrounds in merchandising; she at Anthropologie and he at Will Leather Goods), they both are incredibly stylish, too! Most of the details you’ll see below were handcrafted by the two of them including all of the dream catchers, the macrame hanging and even the groomsmens’ bolero ties + cuff links!
Hayley shares more, We chose the Elysian as our venue because we knew we wanted both our ceremony & reception outdoors. We wanted something that felt earthy, urban & intimate & the Elysian fit our style & personalities perfectly. Handcrafting and curating special pieces has always been something we love doing together and we wanted the wedding to be an extension of our personal style. Almost all of the signage, props, decorations and alter were created by the bride and bridal party. All of the plates were vintage finds or family heirlooms.
So in love with H + A’s sweet first look!
Yes to Hayely + her bridesmaids’ amazing dresses! Hayley is wearing Saldana Vintage and her girls are rocking floral print dresses from Reformation. Shop more dresses that match with this gorgeous aesthetic below:
This wall of dreamcatchers is pretty amazing, no? Bravo to our bride + groom!
I don’t think there was a dry eye during the ceremony, us included. We were worried that doing a first look would detract from seeing each other during the ceremony but if anything it made it even more special and gave us more time together to celebrate our love story.
The Grilled Cheese Truck is our favorite food truck in LA and was a non negotiable of the groom, which I was more than okay with.
Hayley closes with these words, Adding our own special touches made our wedding really feel like the best day ever. Seeing everyone’s hard work, all of the decorations, our friends singing, all of our favorite people in one place is something I will never forget.
Big congrats to the happy couple on such a beautiful day!
