Carondelet House wedding: Rowina and Mark

Categories   Real Weddings

Carondelet House wedding | 100 Layer Cake

The brick walls, the relaxed and rustic vibe, and the the twinkle-lit courtyards at the Carondelet House venue near downtown Los Angeles make it quite the magical place. We envy any couple that gets to celebrate their wedding there. And we envy Rad + In Love for capturing not just any wedding there, but this dreamy one. Even with 120 guests, everything about their wedding felt so intimate. Maybe it was all the gorgeous lace details in Rowina and her bridesmaids’ dresses, or the candlelit alter both of their fathers created for them, but we’re loving it to bits.

The living succulent walls on both sides of the alter were built by Mark’s dad and later served as favors for guests to walk up to and pick off.

Both Rowina + Mark are super creative, so they actually designed and made their invitations, those rad gold and white coasters at east setting, menus, poster, and decorations.

Wow! That's an awesome idea. The ambiance of the interior of the house is perfect. The lighting is wonderful, photographers would really love that kind of environment to take photos. What I didn't like about the concept are the candles on the floor. They didn't somehow jive to the whole concept of the wedding but anyway, it made the ambiance complete though. I also loved the table set up! Definitely, a good caterer who know what they do. congratulations to Rowina and Mark!

A DIY wedding can really create satisfactory results and this post is a perfect example. You don't really have to hire or buy everything because for sure, there are ways that couples and their friends can work on to make wedding essentials more personal and a lot special!

Christian Louboutin heels on Mar 21, 2013

Yes, this is absolutely true! Now, with Christian Louboutin, it is possible to experience its original shoes at a price you always wanted. You might be thinking whether it will be a right decision to invest for a Christian Louboutin product. Well, it is really a matter of concern as unlike other accessories, shoes require a number of factors to be taken into account. Shoes are not only about wearing it, a correct design is always essential. They have well trained staffs who look after the necessary details during the manufacturing process. You can always trust them. However one must confirm that she is dealing with a genuine source while purchasing such products.

The simplicity comes across beautifully! I love the shot of the candles and flowers.

I'd enjoy to retire where air conditioning is not needed, along with a dog park with benches is nearby.
