Martin and Aixa’s DIY Gallery Wedding

VOF was lucky enough to plan an extraordinary event for my beautiful co-worker, Aixa. The wedding was a true DIY affair and it turned out beautifully. We designed and constructed all the flower arrangements, gallery vignettes, invites and all. As an artist herself, Aixa wanted the wedding to feel like a hip new gallery opening. Voila! Gallery in Los Angeles, CA made for the perfect venue for this artist. We themed everything around the gallery and really tied the event together with the venue.

Special Vintage Objects around the gallery provided the perfect addition to the center pieces.

When doing your own flowers, don’t be afraid to play with different textures and forms, creating unique shapes, give flowers some life and extra interest.

This heart light became the center of attention at the wedding, gracing the front of the invites, the center of the alter, and, later-on, becoming a prime photo-opp on the night of the wedding.

As the gallery specialized in custom frames, this custom vintage style pinboard was made just for the special couple for guests to leave a special message.

Feathers in the bouquets gave an extra flair and vintage vibe.

Mason jars with hydrangeas and feathers were suspended from the ceiling to give height and extra interest to the space.

This pillow was hand-knit just for the affair. A question mark on the other side made for the perfect ring pillow.

Custom made vintage signs added personality and necessity to the space. Check back later for a special tutorial on how to make your own vintage documents. PS. It only takes 5 minutes 🙂

This special Lladro was given to the couple as their something borrowed from the groom’s parents. It made a perfect addition to the cake table. 

A Glamorous Affair

Inspiration for a Glamorous Affair
It’s been awhile since I’ve gotten a chance to post. Thanks W for picking up my slack! As W mentioned, I have been beyond consumed with wedding planning. Some might say I’m slightly obsessed, considering I have over a year till the big day, but what can I say, the VOF girls LOVE weddings.
While I’ve been pinteresting up a storm, cutting up bridal magazines, pouring over 100 Layer Cake, Style Me Pretty, Snippet & Ink and many more, I did find the time to finally watch The Great Gatsby. All I can say is “GASP!” I know there was a lot of discussion over this film, but as a self-professed obsessor over all things pretty, I was in love. To get to the point, this movie inspired my planning even more. Check out what I am thinking as I plan my glamorous affair!
