Modern Take on a Classic Wedding

July 21, 2021

With help from her bridesmaids, Emily put the finishing touches together for her wedding look in the open-air loft at Forme Los Angeles. Her classic white gown was paired with an intricate headband, up-do, and dainty charm necklace. Each bridesmaid wore a black maxi dress in different styles and all the girls held a bouquet of greenery with rust and white flowers. The group circled the venue posing for photos while Edwin and his groomsmen were elsewhere doing the same. Edwin whore a classic black suit with black tie to differentiate himself from his groomsmen who were wearing ivory ties. With matching sunglasses, the guys took group photos then lined up for ceremony with the girls.

Ghost chairs were lined up in the courtyard at Forme and an iron backdrop with boho floral arrangements stood tall as the ceremony backdrop for Edwin and Emily. Guests arrived through the wooden doors and signed into the bride and groom’s guestbook before taking a seat. Once everyone had arrived, ceremony music cued up and the wedding party made their entrance down the aisle. Emily was last to make an appearance walking down the aisle arm-in-arm with her father as guests stood from their seats. When she made it to Edwin’s side, everyone sat back down and the officiant began the ceremony. Vows and rings were exchanged and the importance of marriage was shared, then the bride and groom were pronounced husband and wife. Everyone clapped in excitement as the newlyweds shared a kiss and made their way down the aisle to exit the ceremony.

Beer and wine were pouring for cocktail hour while guests snacked on Filet & Wild Mushrooms with béarnaise sauce, Fig, Goat Cheese & Mascarpone Tarts with pomegranate sauce, and Shitake BLT Skewers with Argentinean chimichurri. The bride and groom took this time to take pictures with their immediate families and together with the entire wedding party before rejoining for dinner. A seating chart led guests to their assigned tables inside where tables were draped in ivory linens and gold flatware and rimmed plates marked each place setting. The iron backdrop from Emily and Edwin’s ceremony was brought inside as the sweetheart backdrop and flowers filled bud vases across all the tables. The newlyweds made their grand entrance and went straight into their first dance. After, toasts were made and the first course of Caesar Salad was served. By the time toasts came to an end, guests were served Chicken Florentine, Classic Filet of Beef, Vegetarian Rotolo Bolzano, Dauphinoise Potatoes, and Roasted Broccolini. The plated menu was selected by the bride and groom with help from our Event Specialist, Rachel, and the food was well received by guests who gave their meals a 5-star rating. The celebration came to a close when a 2-tiered wedding cake was cut and shared with guests. Everyone sent Emily and Edwin off in an uproar of cheers and said their goodbyes.
