Eclectic West Coast Wedding by Aubrey Joy Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

I’m sooo crazy about Elizabeth and Cristian’s eclectic style… and the gown, oh the gown.  Elizabeth wore a Monique Lhuillier stunner that is incredibly unique and sophisticated. Enjoy their story in photographs by Washington-based photographer, Aubrey Joy.The couple chose The Little Door Restaurant in Los Angeles because of its eclectic feel, knowing that traditional wedding décor was not going to work. Growing up in southern California, Elizabeth has always loved succulents and the desert greenery fit in perfectly with the vibe of the space. Items collected from thrift shops, flea markets and the Pasadena Rose Bowl Antique Fair were used as planters. To emphasize The Little Door theme, skeleton keys were tied to hand-calligraphed manila tags by NJW Calligraphy and displayed as escort cards. Guests were sent home with custom recipe books from the bride and groom, who both love to cook. With so many of their friends and family spread throughout the country, they don’t get the opportunity to share a meal nearly as often as they’d like, making the parting gift particularly sweet and meaningful.

Blissful Wishes to this gorgeous couple, Elizabeth + Cristian!
