Real Wedding

Sara + David // Smog Shoppe

Sara + David’s gorgeous fall Los Angeles wedding at Smog Shoppe was such a fun family affair! A widely known secret: The Smog Shoppe is one of our favorite wedding venues here in Los Angeles, because that’s where our owner Margaux + her husband Chad were married!

Sara + David wanted their wedding to reflect their love of color and family – so they choose the only season here in Los Angeles where there is really any color change – the fall! They worked with The Little Branch florist to include a luscious palette of deep orange, mustard, fuschia and rust for their flowers, along with neutral elements like wheat and dried florals. Groom David rocked a rad deep plum suit jacket and Bride Sara wore a long sleeve dress from Love + Lace Bridal salon with a textured top and flowing skirt.

The couple choose all of their favorite food to be served, from a Boa station for cocktail hour from Fundamental LA down to late nite carnitas tacos from Jaliscos Mobile Tacos. They involved their family in making fun details for the event like crepe paper flowers for the napkin detail, and projected a custom caricature of themselves onto a large screen during the reception.
