Spicy Love Wedding at Smoky Hollow Studios

Sweet Love is so passé, Spicy love is what 2017 was all about! I had a blast working with Leslie and Matt on their Smoky Hollow Studio wedding back in October. As a couple, Matt and Leslie were hilarious and so easy to work with. A wedding planner's dream couple if you ask me! This wedding was fully of beautiful traditions, a ton of creativity but also a bit of edginess.

Getting ready in style

The gang started their getting ready party at nearby hotel but met up in the ultra cool bridal suite at Smoky Hollow Studios for photos. I just love the moodiness and texture that this bridal suite has. Although you're only allow to have 20 people up there at a time, it's perfect for bridal party photos!

Romantic ceremony

While everyone was getting dolled up, the 'Cause We Can Events team was busy setting up for the ceremony downstairs. We had about 100 guests attending this wedding which was perfect for this venue. We set up the ceremony chairs in front of the big glass garage doors which allowed for a nice long walk down the aisle. Once the ceremony was over, we just needed to flip the space into the reception by placing the same chairs at the tables.

Reception details + cocktails

While the newlyweds and their families took photos all around the wedding venue, the guests got to enjoy some yummy cocktails crafted by Cali Craft Cocktails. Leslie and Matt had a lot of cute and personalized details. From their original post card sign in book to their chalkboard art, they thought of it all. One of the coolest details though, were the centerpieces. Each table had a lantern and inside was a vintage cake topper that from past weddings or great thrift store finds. How freakin' cool is that!?

Get this party started!

Turn it up Mr. DJ! After a delicious dinner and unforgettable speeches from some of their favorite people, Leslie and Matt cut their cake and hit the dance floor! As the night started to wind down, we gathered all the guests outside for a very special Grand Exit. Any guesses on what it was?
