Nouveau Carnival wedding: Nina + Amir

Categories   Real Weddings

When Nina + Amir play by their rules, nothing short of amazing happens. DIY wedding? Not this one. N + A left it all up to the pros! There were no vendors involved in this wedding by the way. So who exactly helped to pull off this eclectic nouveau carnival wedding? A group of crazy talented, “Party Enablers”. Amir’s words, not ours (but we may soon ban vendors to replace with that). The always refreshing photos, captured by Max Wanger, tell the entire story – from atop an L.A mountain to a colorful reception at the Marrakesh House. You’ll die when you see what Party Enablers, Bash, Please dished out for this partay.

From Kelly & Paige of Bash, Please:

Nina + Amir are two worlds but one heart. Both actor/comedians, she hailing from NYC and he from San Francisco, they have a love for eclectic, dramatic, flair and crazy fun. Their wedding was bound to be colorful in more ways than one. Bright pops of modern patterns mixed with French Moroccan elegance meet up at one of L.A.’s eco-friendly venues, Marrakesh House. Nina + Amir allowed us to take the traditional elements of a wedding and spin them into nouveau carnival. There’s a modern interpretation of a Persian Sofreh and a hookah lounge, both a nod to his heritage. We hired a tarot card reader and a fortune teller, a nod to her whimsical interests. Comedians dressed up as drag queens interviewed guests on video. A gospel choir played their processional. Pops of color in rainbow hues mixed with black and white sophistication set the tone for a playful reception. Nina wore a hot pink Valentino party dress for dancing.

Nina had one wardrobe change throughout the night, Amir had 5 different boutonnieres to change up throughout the night – each in a different color. To tie in all the pops of color, each table was assigned a color and the flowers (gorgeous pink peonies, hot pink nerine, pink heirloom roses, orange sandersonia, orange mums, yellow ranunculas, yellow dahlias, craspedia, acacia, green lisienthus, mint, purple clover, purple scabiosa) were arranged in an ombre effect in that shade.

There's such a wide sense of space in this wedding. We're absolutely in love with that. It looks like you two decided to do things your own way and they turned out so much the better for that! Your wedding day should be a celebration of yourselves, your personality, and what you value, and you two seem to be the epitome of that.

The wedding looks like so much fun! Where did you find your wooden flower boxes?

Happily Ever After on Feb 23, 2012

What a unique wedding. Love it!

Rebecca on Feb 23, 2012

Sierra on Feb 23, 2012

So many great details and inspiration here! Love those first photos of the couple on the hill.. looked so romantic and relaxing!

alexa on Feb 23, 2012

Wow, the groom changed bouts 5 times? So fun! I want these colors in my wedding now.

Jennifer T on Feb 23, 2012

Rainbow flowers..ok what a great beautiful.

Ashley on Feb 23, 2012

So pretty and fun! I have just one question....I see the couple had a pup in their ceremony, I just wonder where the pup went during the reception? I'd really like to incorporate our dog but I worry about where he'll be fore the rest of the wedding? He's a complete love.

Amir Talai on Feb 23, 2012

Thanks so much for featuring us y'all! We've been fans of the blog since the day we got engaged! And thanks so much for your kind comments everyone. It's wonderful to feel the love from people we've never even met. It was indeed the wedding of *our* dreams, and we wouldn't change a thing. Magic! To answer your Qs: Michaela- dont know about the flower boxes. Ask the wonderful ladies of Bash. Alexa, I didn't actually change bouts that many times. It was a(nother) great idea by the Bash ladies, but I knew that I'd just space and forget. So, I changed once, and then gave one to my dad, bro, and cousin. That way, even though I didn't have a wedding party, I still had a special little connection with my "best guys". Ashley, our little love Jesse was indeed the hit of the ceremony. You should have heard the ovation his entrance got. There are a lot of pet sitting services that will come pick up your dog and take care of them in LA. We simply had a dog walker (you can find one on Craigslist if there aren't notices around your 'hood) come pick him (and our extra housekeys) up in her car, give him a walk in our neighborhood to get all his energy (and other things) out, then leave him at our home, lock up, and pop the key in the mailbox. He was rested, stressfree, and happy to see us when we got home that night. Tweet me @amirtalai if u want contact info for the gospel choir or the tarot lady. We recommend them highly but neither of them have websites. Oh! And if you want more, here's the awesome vid of our reception, set to Lionel Richie:

Calie Rose on Feb 27, 2012

I love this wedding! The monochromatic boutonnieres and ombre effect of the brides bouquet and centerpieces are stellar! Definitely love ombre weddings...the grooms boutonniere wrapped in black and white stripe ribbon, the lounge areas, and other decor with the black and white stripes...stunning wedding!
