Julie + Farzad | SmogShoppe

From the moment Julie and I started planning the big day, I knew we were going to become close.  Her love for her husband, Farzad {Fuzz}, and their daughter is like something out of a story book. 

The journey from the beginning of their courtship to their wedding day was a long one, but well worth it.  We planned the day around traditions they had been forming for years with their growing family, close relatives and dear friends.  The historic Culver Hotel served as the bride and groom's dressing room, while the ceremony and reception took place at Culver City's chic downtown venue, SmogShoppe.  Julie wanted to incorporate shades of fuchsia without over powering the space, or making it appear too girly for her strapping man.  The perfectly crafted arrangements from SEED Floral completed the look by bringing in touches of gold and green. 

You can see the result of Julie's vision, including the DIY touches, in the images taken by the extraordinary team from STUDIO EMP.
