Traditional Romanian Orthodox meets LA party at this art deco wedding

In Romania, we kept the ceremony traditional, which is itself offbeat because it’s like a time capsule — orthodox traditions reminded me of this year’s Met Gala. For the LA party, I wanted all local greens: palms to match the invites (and bridesbabes getting-ready outfits!) and succulent gold terrariums and little vases that doubled as favors. I wanted my 12 bridesmaids to pick their own dresses. The only rules were to pick a metallic or navy blue outfit they would love.

5 weddings that prove LA's Rawtography excels at stunning wedding photography and video

If there was ever a photo and video team who keeps us googly-eyed at the weddings they send our way, it's the LA-based superstars of Rawtography.

Yep, THAT Dick Van Dyke.

Here are some of their favorite weddings (that are now ours', too!)…

Enjoy the dark forest vibes at this moody and macabre wedding

We wanted to create a dark, moody vibe without going to over the top goth. We wanted our wedding to reflect who we as as people and as a couple. We both love the macabre. We decided to have our wedding have reflect elements of death (skulls, etc.) and life (lush plants, etc.) to represent the end of what came before as it transitioned to the new life we were creating together.
