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?

Alli + Rob’s Smoky Hollow Studios Wedding

There are so many things I love about this Smoky Hollow Studios wedding but one of my favorites was that this local Hermosa Beach couple made it a priority to have great speeches. I know that's pretty much impossible to show you in photos but, trust me, they were EPIC!

Like any great wedding, the day started out with the girls getting ready at the brand new ocean front Redondo Beach Shade Hotel. Armed with cute rompers and a glass of champagne, the bride and her bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done by the lovely Emerald of Makeup by Emerald M.

The bright floral bouquet by Floret Moon Designs with all of its different shades of pink and green really popped against Alli's ivory dress. The invitation suite matched the whole color palette perfectly and added that extra touch of detail.

Meanwhile, Rob and his groomsmen were putting on their jackets, tightening their ties and putting the finishing touches on their groomsmen attires.

The First Look took place in front of a really cool live succulent wall on one of the Shade Hotel patios. Although it was quite windy, Chloe Moore managed to capture some really sweet moments between the soon-to-be newlyweds.

After some cute photos, the couple and their bridal party headed to the ceremony and reception site, Smoky Hollows Studio in El Segundo. This venue is a warehouse meets trendy rustic studio right in the heart of the South Bay. It's filled with plants and a ton of cool eclectic decor. Alli and Rob, who brew their own beer, had branded pint glasses, farmhouse napkins and colorful floral arrangements on long wooden farm tables. The ceremony arch was a giant macrame backdrop surrounded by greenery and ferns. Such a great look!

The ceremony itself was both sweet and funny. I don't think there was a single dry eye in the room. Once Alli and Rob were pronounced husband and wife, guests were given a margarita and Border Grill was ready with some delicious food!
