A Boutique And Glamourous 1920s LA Wedding – Stephanie & Jonas

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Who got engaged over the winter break? I’d love to hear your stories and see you beautiful rings.. Make sure you go and share them over on the Marry Me Ink Facebook page!

Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you Stephanie and Jonas’ LA wedding at Culver City Hotel, full of 1920s glamour, from Steve Cowell Photo.

We met each other at a hockey game. My roommate (Chelsea) at the time had tickets to go see the LA Kings play and her date fell through at the last minute so I decided to join her. She befriended my future husband in line while ordering beer and the rest was history, and ironically we both were wearing long sleeves the whole night and didn’t know until we became Instagram “friends” the next day how tattooed we both really were. 

The whole wedding was pretty much DIY. I didn’t want a wedding planner – I wanted it to be my own and even if things didn’t turn out perfect I was okay with that because it was something that I created with love and from my heart. I knew I wanted it to be 20’s themed with a touch of that Gatsby glamorous feel so I really stuck to that idea, almost everything was hand made or customized. Every single detail was thought of, almost like putting a puzzle together, every piece just fit so it was really neat seeing that vision come to life.

E&W Couture – Beach Hut Brides

ew-146

I have always love the sweet, ethereal style of E&W Couture (Which until recently I didn’t realise stood for  “Ears & Whiskers Couture” – Hence the rabbit ears on their logo!), so when Carly Turner Photography sent me this beach hut shoot, I just had to say yes to featuring it! Carly sent me little email with all the details about the shoot..

I’m a wedding photographer and love shooting weddings, but I also love all the girly bits – especially the dresses! I photographed a wedding in the Spring and my bride had this really simple, unique two piece outfit (long skirt and seperate strapless crop top). The bride had told me that it had been made by E&W Couture and that I should check out the website as they had some really gorgeous stuff.

I got in contact with E&W Couture and ended up arranging to use their dresses on some styled bridal work. I chose dresses that I thought would suit the models best.

Grant and I have known each other since we were really little. When we were really young both of our families were living in Botswana and really good friends. While they socialised around the pool we used to play in the mud and stuff. When I was 10ish my family moved to Canada and a year or 2 after, Grants family moved to Australia. We lost touch until one day I was bored and added a bunch of people on Facebook that I knew from Botswana and he didn’t remember who I was so he sent me a message. We got to chatting and I was going traveling to Australia so I figured I would go and see him. He picked me up from the airport, we saw each other and just knew.

We both met at a destination wedding – We were the only two people from Florida. We ended up making out for two days straight and, after our goodbyes, texted each other non-stop. After three months of over 3hours drives to visit each other, we moved in together.

Out day was about having all our closest family and friends together and just celebrating with everyone.
