Emilie and Tyler’s Wedding, Huron Substation, Downtown Los Angeles

A lot has already been said about Emilie and Tyler’s fantastic wedding at the Huron Substation in downtown Los Angeles.  This wedding was recently featured on Style Me Pretty, but I wanted to post my own blog entry since there were so many quirky and original details that this couple chose for their wedding (coordinated by wedding planner extraordinaire, Amanda Ma, of Pasadena-based Fresh Events Company).  I really loved capturing the vibrant colors, as well as the artsy and engaging personalities at Emilie and Tyler’s wedding!

Here were some of the other vendors who contributed to their day:

Ceremony and Reception: Huron Substation

Catering and Wedding Cake: Auntie Em’s Kitchen and Catering

Hair and Makeup: Mieko with Kelly Zhang Makeup

Videographer: Cloud 9 Cinematography

DJ: Red Shoe LA

Rentals: Town & Country Event Rentals

Deborah and David’s Wedding, The Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles

Deborah is the type of person that is so bubbly that her smile literally lights up the room and while I wasn’t able to meet David until the day of their wedding, you could practically see the sparks fly when they saw each other for the first time (maybe that’s why David and his groomsmen wore socks with lightning bolts on them?!)!

It’s tradition that Jewish ceremonies be performed at sundown, so when Deborah descended the stairs in the evening dusk for their ceremony at The Skirball Cultural Center, it set the scene for a very dramatic evening.  Deborah’s cousin officiated the ceremony, which was a nice personal touch.  Amy Shapiro with Mindy Weiss Party Consultants did a fantastic job bringing all the elements together for their wedding day.

Some of the other vendors for their wedding included:

Videography: Lenny Dodge of Entertainment Plus

Flowers: Commerce Flowers

Cake: Rosebud Cakes

Band: Aejay’e & The Full Spectrum Band
