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.

“We kept the traditions we felt passionate about, ditched the ones we felt weren’t as meaningful to us”
Today I get to share with you the cool, stylish and very classy Smog Shoppe wedding of Shannon and Nick from Steve Cowell Photo. I love everything about this wedding from Shannon’s classic dress and flower crown, to their accidental first look.
Nick had curated an art exhibition near where I was living. I walked by, peered in the window, and thought it was interesting enough to have a look. We met, scheduled a studio visit to see my work, and spent a year or so becoming friends. About two weeks into our relationship we went to Cleveland on a whim. That was a trip we will always remember fondly.
The only DIY element we had were our Save The Date cards. The master copy was Sharpie on paper. Easy.
