Francie & Ali’s Fabulous Nuptials in the City of Angels
Last weekend, I had the pleasure of attending a wedding at Vibiana, downtown LA that I can only describe as fabulous. FAB, even. Every detail about Franie and Ali’s day was crisp, classic, and oh-so chic. I kid you not—when I saw her dress for the first time, I almost died right there in the church pew. Look at it! Absolutely stunning. Francie’s platinum hair and cascading bouquet were the perfect compliment to her gorgeous dress. Add contagious happiness into the mix? The perfect ensemble for a white wedding…
The cocktail hour was held outdoors immediately after the ceremony. The champagne was flowing (specifically from the hand of the mustached man who moves with the table seen below), the cigars were puffing (hand-rolled, right there in front of you), and folks like Sean and I were pillaging the photo booth. That’s what we do now, after having had a photo booth at our own wedding. We figure it’s in our best interest to take as many photos in the photo booth as possible, and completely dominate an entire page in the couple’s scrapbook. Having seen the technique used in our own scrapbook, we feel the need to always return the favor!
After cocktails, we enjoyed more cocktails indoors, where the ceremony site had been transformed into a class-act banquet hall.
This is my favorite photo of the pair… it depicts pure, unadulterated happiness, and dancing. The two best things in the world. Congrats, Francie and Ali!
