Devon and Faith had their wedding at the Los Angeles Natural History Museum, which meant lots of dinosaur and prehistoric details (including dino topiaries!). Faith wore an amazing black gown, sexy mesh booties, and birdcage veil. The ceremony was officiated by Devon's father and was held in front of the museum's dinosaur display. It also included an a capella version of Pixie's "Velouria." Jessica Schilling Photography captured all of the fun details and shared it with us.

    • Thanks! My advice to anyone getting married is always go with your gut feeling! If you want to wear a blue dress, do it! Traditions are like rules! They are meant to be broken! I have no regrets at ALL! But I'm also a girl who knows what she wants!

    • Thanks to everyone who commented on our cake! Jay's Catering in Garden Grove, Ca made the cake! Our concept was a last second inspiration, hurriedly scrawled on a napkin. Showing them Spirit Away pictures from cellphones. They did a great job of making it come to life.
