{ ayumi + brian | smog shoppe wedding }

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

Such a joy-filled day! Ayumi & Brian are those type of people who radiate positivity & warmth at all times, and their wedding was a perfect reflection of that – the bright pops of color everywhere, the cheerful table settings, the labor-of-love DIY goodness {check out those handpainted signs! the cool toolbox! the invites! the pocket squares!}. Even the retro print fabric that made appearances throughout the day exclaimed, “happy!” Even more cheer – as an alternative to petals or bubbles, they had guests blow up Japanese paper balloons (just like the ones that made appearances in their engagement session!) and toss those during the recessional. The Smog Shoppe, with its quirky backdrops & always intimate vibe, provided the perfect nook to house all this joy :)

As I always say, the most beautiful weddings to me are not necessarily the grandiose ones, with the ginormous budget, or the opulent decor – they are the ones that are by default unique & creative because they incorporate the pieces of who you are, that are naturally stylish because they celebrate your personalities, that can’t help but be meaningful & fun because they focus on your very own special type of love :)

I can’t thank Ayumi & Brian enough for giving me the chance to be a part of this day, and to All You Need is Love Events for coordinating everything perfectly behind the scenes (and designing all the amazing florals!)

{And thank you to Style Me Pretty as well for featuring this wedding! You can see the post & read more about the details straight from the bride here!}

smog shoppe wedding

You may remember Kelley & Edmund from their colorful Up-themed engagement session! Now imagine this theme being sweetly carried over to their wedding. Add some pinwheels. A couple hundred of them perhaps. (Handmade one-by-one by Kelley and her mom! Check out the altar! They made them ALL! MIND=BLOWN!) Then add some pretty patterned dresses. A casual & artsy venue (I’ve been wanting to shoot at the Smog Shoppe for eons). A stack of books here, a cluster of milk glass vases there, and an ice cream cart, filled to the brim with salted caramel & strawberry buttermilk, to round out the evening.

With a setup like this, and dozens of excited family and friends in attendance, this wedding was just as magical as the movie it was themed after :) It was such an honor to share in their joyous day!

A wonderful thank you to Wedding Chicks for featuring Kelley & Edmund’s wedding on their blog! Be sure to check out the post with additional eye candy here
