Alexa and I first met in a quaint coffee shop in Culver City. The conversation kept going off track in a good way. We were being women and being real with one another. After a hug goodbye I knew I was going to be in this girls life for a long time. The email came and I was over the moon to be chosen to be a part of their wedding.
Her dad came to our first venue meeting which was delightful. To witness his admiration for the Adamson House and how much sense it made for his darling daughter was touching. She embraced her Mexican heritage focusing on Día de los Muertos from her floral headpiece to the bartenders being full face painted, from indigenous textiles to tortilla warmers for centerpiece vessels and from a taco cart for cocktail hour to a pinata for the wedding cake. She thought of it all and we made it happen with enthusiasm.
We went full speed ahead with design, rentals and catering. With the help of her florist, Shindig Chic, it all came together magically. Alexa moved to London shortly after the initial planning began. Her now husband is from there and was already building their home for her arrival. Thanks to modern technology we were able to keep tight communication throughout the process. The first time I met Jack was on Skype which was a lovely treat being I was not going to shake his hand until much closer to the big day. These two were meant for each other which you can see in the images captured by their very talented photog, Justin Lee Photography
