A gorgeous bohemian wedding at the Smog Shoppe in Los Angeles, CA has hit the blog! It’s time for my once a year post. Just kidding, it’s a goal of mine to start blogging once every 1-2 weeks. I have literally 50+ amazing weddings that I’ve never shared on our website. Time to change that, right?! Here’s a really great bohemian, chic wedding at the most epic venue ever called the Smog Shoppe. You guessed it, it used to be a running smog shop! The giant succulent wall combined with the industrial feel created the most unique and perfect vibe for Chase and Nicolette’s rad wedding. Salted Blooms knocked it out of the freaking park with the florals. Flawless.
You’ll see that this couple opted out of doing a first look. Instead, they exchanged cards and gifts while being separated by a wall. Tears were instantly flowing, it was so amazing and beautiful. I most definitely had to wipe my eye a time or two. Sweet Chase was emotional within about 30 seconds of reading his letter from Nicolette. For any couples who are hesitant about doing a first look, definitely consider this as an option! It’s a great way to keep the reveal for the aisle, but still getting to hear and touch one another. The emotions that come from these are just unmatched. Now, enjoy the photos. 🙂
