There’s a secret hidden between the skyscrapers and parking garages of downtown Los Angeles. Something you would never know was there unless told by someone else. Something that you wouldn’t find by yourself without some major exploring. Located discreetly on the fifth floor off of Wilshire Boulevard is a wedding venue. And we had the wonderful opportunity to photograph this Styled Session at The One Event Venue a few weeks ago.
The ceremony space was decorated atop the peaceful rooftop patio. Pampas Grass was displayed along each side of the aisle and led to a white gazebo at the altar. Guests could sit in elegantly modern clear acrylic chairs as the couple shared their vows and confessed their love to each other.
In a corner of the rooftop patio, a lounge space with decor provided by 3 Little Birds Event Planning was set in a way to encourage conversations between guests while keeping them comfortable. Behind the furniture, a window looked out upon the city. And in the distance, the famous Hollywood sign was visible against the mountains.
Organized by Laureanne, and styled by Jess from Not Jess A Planner, their meticulous attention to detail and diligent searching for the best wedding professionals brought this modern romantic styled session at The One Event Venue to life. Everything was elegantly and classically designed with absolutely nothing forgotten.
Caitlin designed a fairytale in real life with her ability to make florals bend to her will. Everything from the ceremony aisle, to the bride’s bouquets, the night was perfect. Inside, more florals were arranged on top of tables rented from Rustic Peony Co. The beauty of the centerpieces complemented the Main Hall of the One Event Venue and provided extra ambiance to the already romantic setting.
All three models wore attire designed by Rachelle Appelle. Our beautiful bride, Megan, began the night in a light pink dress decorated with small intricacies and a long train. A flower crown sat atop her head and tied in perfectly with her hairstyle. On her finger was a rose gold ring with a large diamond, generously provided by Maple Lane Jewelry. Her groom wore a gray tuxedo with custom-designed shoulder pads. As the night progressed, Megan changed into a stunning and flowy ombre dress for dancing. The dress has delicate designs around her shoulders and chest and was light gray and changed to blue and then dark gray towards her feet.
Jess was the third model at this modern romantic styled session. She wore a classic off-white wedding dress with large blue flowers set into the gown. At times she donned a blue leather jacket beautifully written on by Signs of Our Lives.
All of the model’s looks were completed by the time and talent of Claudia Pinto and Marestelle, our makeup and hair stylists, respectively. Their ability to bring out the models best features were left to the best in Los Angeles and they exceeded expectations!
The Invitation Maven knows better than most that the Stationery is one of the most important parts of any wedding day. She brought along some wonderful invitation suites that photographed beautifully. Her careful attention to spacing and the overall aesthetic made the stationery reflect and complement the rest of the styled session.
The catering and delectable sweets & treats were created by the brilliant mind and hands of Chef Amy. The design and dedication to detail on each dessert she made was impressive. Oh, how we wish our pictures could provide a taste of the heaven-esque desserts she made!
Thank you again to the incredible wedding professionals that made this styled session at The One Event Venue possible. We felt honored to be part of such a wonderful artistic team! Thanks to you, the day was beautiful, and we were privileged to capture it!
