Viv & Lloyd’s wedding at Cafe Pinot was amazing! I’m sad I don’t have any pictures of the ceremony since I had bridesmaid duties, but it was seriously so beautiful. They got married under a tree decorated with pink flowers and ribbons streaming down, and there wasn’t a dry eye as the two of them recited the vows they wrote to each other. I get teary-eyed just thinking about it!
Their reception was set against the backdrop of the Los Angeles Library, and nestled amidst LA’s skyscrapers. Viv & Lloyd really wanted their guests to have a good time, so a jazz band (made up of their talented groomsmen & friends) entertained guests with covers songs like “Candy Shop” and “Between the Sheets” during the cocktail hour, and guests were treated to a silhouette artist, photo booth, and a yummy dessert table! They handed out several Flip video cameras so guests could help record the evening (it was really fun watching the footage afterwards). The groomsmen surprised everyone with an awesome dance, and Lloyd sang as Vivian danced with her father.
It was all so amazing and wonderful that I wish the night could have gone on forever!
Such a cool chandelier designed by Amber Event Production!
We helped to make custom buttons for each guest.
And it took us forever, but Lloyd & I finally figured out how to do a data merge in InDesign to make the seating cards.
Here are the groomsmen serenading the guests during the cocktail hour. Yup, that’s my hubby on the far right!

Vivian & Lloyd live in Portland, and there were lots of Portland guests, so our friends Janet & Allyson made these Portland cookies for their dessert table!
The paper heart straws and buttons we all helped to make.
I really love this sweet moment between the newlyweds!
These giant letters were made by Lloyd & my hubby Jeremy. Aren’t they so cool?
Some pictures from the photobooth. Juli and I made the banner b/c we really wanted to try printing on fabric. It worked!
