Lot 613. As always, Sassy Girl Weddings pulled everything together perfectly, and transformed the loft space into the prettiest urban oasis – how amazing are those hanging arrangements??

One of my most favorite moments was the father-daughter dance – Lina told me her dad’s favorite type of dance is bon odori, a fun group dance that takes place at the Japanese obon festivals. So that’s what they did for their dance! It was my first time seeing this done at a wedding and I loved how their guests joined in, how it was something that was so special & meaningful for Lina and her father, and how his smile showed just how happy he was :) It was a wonderful reminder that your wedding is about you, you can choose what resonates with you most, make your own traditions, and infuse every corner of it with what you hold most dear to your heart :)

It’s no secret that I love pretty outdoor sun-kissed weddings, but there is definitely a soft spot in my heart for the urban loft wedding! This one at Studio 11 had all the fixings – amazing brick walls, beautiful exposed beams, a stunningly lit reception, and an intimate outdoor space perfect for portraits. Aside from all the whimsy and fun that was packed into this day, it hands down had some of the best food I’ve ever experienced at a wedding! Jen works with Kensington Caterers and seriously everything from the hors d’oeuvres to the dessert station was top notch!

Thank you so much Jen & Jason for allowing me to capture your beautiful day! I can’t imagine a couple better suited for each other & I’m so happy for you both! :)

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!)
