Smog Shoppe wedding, Culver City, (sneak peek) Marri and Bryan

2 great weddings in one week, I am a lucky girl. Oh how I wish everyone was as relaxed, fun and creative as Marri and Bryan. And since I am wishing I would happy to shoot at the Smog Shoppe monthly. I just love this venue. Plenty more to come but I was so excited to see these fun portraits and I was working on them hours after getting home from the wedding. Stay tuned for dioramas, great food and fun wedding ideas.

Monica and Gary Smog Shoppe, Los Angeles, July 24, 2010

I was so thrilled to shoot Monica and Gary at the Smog Shoppe in Culver City. It was a location I had been dying to go to. I love their other location the Marvimon House and know both places lend themselves to an awesome backdrop and fun party atmosphere. I am so in love with the weddings here and Monica and Gary are no exception.

Hats off to Monica who was super involved with every decision and had a great attention to detail.  And thanks to All You Need is Love Events for helping her ideas come to fruition, and Eco Caterers for beautiful AND delicious food and catering.

Lily and Russell April 4, 2009 Marvimon House, Los Angeles

 Lily and Russell April 4, 2009 Marvimon House, Los AngelesIts a tie, I cant decide which LA downtown venue I love more. Hotel Figueroa has long been my favorite downtown location but now…the Marvimon House has entered my world. I love this place everything about it, the location just outside of Chinatown, its nondescript outside entrance and then the amazement you have when you walk into this crazy cool place. It has the perfect balance of hip, modern, warm, rustic, welcoming and fun. Lily and Russell chose this venue and I was beyond excited to finally shoot there. They took the feeling of this former car showroom turned “loft” and added their personal touches to make an stunning, classy, fun wedding. Every detail from the gourmet food to the succulent arrangements made this about as perfect party as I can imagine.
Note: an idea to steal….mini milk shakes and doughnuts served late night. Yumm.
Lily and Russell, you guys are awesome, if this is an indicator to your future entertaining I hope I am there for Bar Mitzvahs and 50 year anniversaries. Cheers.

Kristin Banta events worked hard to executed their ideas and did a great job
