Marvimon wedding: Allison + Lowell

Marvimon wedding

With it’s vertical garden oasis, re-salvaged rustic tables, and exposed brick walls, The Marvimon House in Los Angeles added quite the awesome factor to Allison + Lowell’s wedding. But then what Brown Paper Design did with the florals (um, check out those hanging planters) just transformed the room. And, aside from their initials being L + A, these two really are in love with everything LA. Like really. LA based vendors under one roof, Moscow Mules graced the tables, pretty music was played, and pink snake skin stilettos were worn. T’was a successful & gorgeous wedding, you’ll see!

These pink snake skin stilettos paired with an all lace and French bustled gown may not have sounded like they’d mix well, but oh did they. Wow. And the dress? There’s a pretty great story behind it that you’ll hear all about from Allison in just a sec.

My dress was a custom made unfinished Monique Lhuillier lace dress which I bought at a sample sale. It doesn’t have a name attached to it because it was never a part of any collection. I feel in love with the lace detailing and had never seen it before, and have yet to see it again. The dress had to be altered down 3-4 sizes, fitted, and finished by Anne Fiser of “A stich in Time”.  The jeweled belt & veil I wore was handmade by Anne’s daughter, Olivia.  They not only made my dress spectacular but helped me with every part of my wedding including, and most importantly, recommending Yoleine (my amazing coordinator and planner).

Brown Paper Designs blew my mind!  The flowers used for the bridal party were icelandic poppies, ranunculus, stock, peonies, and yellow roses (to honor my grandmother that passed away & they’re also the flower for the city I was born in: Tyler, TX). Throughout the space they used a mix of ranunculus, stock, peonies, moss, walking sticks… it all looks stunning.

Moscow Mules were a huge hit in Los Angeles back in the 1940’s, so they gifted each of their guests with their own mug!
