Real Weddings: Angel + Angela

We have a positively sigh-worthy wedding for you today photographed by two of my favorites, Ray and Erwin of Apertura! Angel and Angela had a unique and modern Los Angeles wedding at the SLS Hotel, infused with tons of personal touches and many DIY elements.  The couple planned their wedding on their own and both Angel and Angela were involved in the process – it’s so fun to see a groom so excited about their event!

Angela’s designed her gorgeous gown and worked with a dress maker in Indonesia to have it brought to life.  She finished and altered her gown at home by hand.

The floral elements were created by Bobbe Vagell and featured chartreuse flowers.  Flowers in a single color are so impactful!

As self-proclaimed foodies, Angel and Angela were thrilled to learn that the executive chef for the SLS is Jose Andres.  The food looks to die for!

Angela created the stationery for the event, including the programs, escort cards, and table names.  These mini-pomander escort cards are SO unique!

    I am an Interior Architect and I must say, when I typed “modern wedding” into the search engine, this is exactly what I hoped to find. The attention to the graphics and importance of quality in every peice is simply beautiful. Your invitation card really inspired me. It is encouraging as I face planning my own wedding, that so much can be done by hand.
