Wedding Date on Mar 17, 2018

Mike and I actually met at a wedding! I coordinate weddings and he was a groomsman. While we both noticed each other throughout the rehearsal and wedding day, we didn't end up really speaking until afterwards when he emailed me to ask me out. Fast forward a couple years, and many travels and laughs later, and we got married March 17, 2018 at The Fig House in Los Angeles.Mike and I didn't behold ourselves to a particular theme or color palette except for a broad "jewel tones, things that match The Fig House, and lots of pink!" direction. The decor was meant to be colorful, eclectic, whimsical and inspired by everything I loved from weddings I’ve coordinated or found on Pinterest.We really wanted our wedding to be something uniquely personal to us. There were little details that our guests probably didn't notice that were inside jokes to us – some were even surprises for each other! We had tiny Monopoly houses painted gold and themed detail cards in our invites because we love playing the video game version; Cracker Jack boxes were a nod to Breakfast at Tiffany's; we named our speakeasy The Bear & Fawn after a YouTube video that cracks us up – Mike even bought bear and fawn statues! Bic pens, a Game of Thrones cake topper, and a ‘member berries’ sign on our sweetheart table were all meant to make us smile throughout the day. We left out traditional activities that didn’t suit us, such as the garter and bouquet toss, and parents’ dances.We also wanted things to be eco-friendly and somewhat cost-effective so we eschewed some of the typical things like printed save-the-dates, RSVP cards, menus, programs, and a guest book, and we used recycled tile samples that would otherwise have been thrown away for our escort cards (hand lettered by me!). We limited one time use items and bought things we knew we could pass on to other couples for their weddings.Mike really wanted to have a few surprises for our guests – an Irish jig for St. Patrick's Day, an In-and-Out truck for late night snacks, and a speakeasy-style Irish whiskey tasting. We just wanted everyone to have a good time since our families and many of our friends traveled from out of state. He works in the film industry so we had a few movie-themed decor items, and our rehearsal dinner was even at a movie theater – iPic in Pasadena. We showed "How to Steal a Million" with Audrey Hepburn and had movie themed cocktails! Our wedding also had a photo booth, plenty of dancing, and few signature cocktails to entertain our guests.The dessert table was really important to us because we love treats! We had three cakes with different looks and flavors, complemented with mini donuts – all were vegan. This was an area I really went crazy on because I knew I could be creative and colorful, and create a focal point. In addition to our very talented cake designer, our florist really brought the display to life and tied it in with the rest of the room.It really was the best day ever for us and we look forward to more special moments in our future!
