These invites just scream California cool, don’t they? That’s how Bash Please described Kristen + Josh’s colorful 250 guest Irvine wedding when they sent these shots by Jennifer Emerling our way. K + J (founders of the nonprofit 9 Dots) didn’t have a particular theme in mind, but they knew they didn’t want to stress over the planning or the wedding. They cut out traditions that didn’t make sense for them (and are known to get stressful if you let them)—no bridal party, no seating assignments, online RSVPS, meticulous DIYs, etc. That way, they could sit back, relax, and enjoy everything their rad team of vendors put together for their big day.

Is Kristen’s Reem Acra gown not the most stunning thing ever?

Kristen’s vision: bright, happy colors, leaving out anything that felt too stuffy. Josh’s must-have: food trucks. It all just fell into place from there, and the Bash Please team wowed with a bunch of custom décor to fit their laidback vibes.

Kristen says, The 1st dance was to Pharrell’s “Happy” with a small portion of choreographed silliness.

Final words from our bride…

Every moment is super memorable for us, from getting ready to the dance party at the end. The ceremony was really special. We had my little sister and Josh’s little brother officiate and Josh and I wrote our own vows. Our siblings walked our little dog, Tio, down the aisle and Tio sat up at the front during the ceremony. Even though we had almost 250 guests, the ceremony was so fun and intimate, we’ll never forget it!

Industrial modern Florida wedding inspiration | Photo by LH Photography | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=85478

Laura of Ashton Events Planning and Design + the team below snagged the coolest venue for their shoot: Snap! Space in downtown Orlando. It’s an indoor-outdoor art gallery with contemporary industrial features that the team honed in on with a simple color palette of black, white, and cranberry with metallic and organic greenery. With ultra chic accents and geometric accessories, this shoot is all about the littlest details.

Thanks to LH Photography for sharing the images below!

Laura says, A few favorite details included the whimsical yet modern, lucite swing seats, the stunning concrete detailing in the stationery, as well as the unusual presentation of an “interactive” centerpiece where the guests can serve themselves.

It was all about contrast: Between light and dark, modern and raw. And can we just take a moment to admire this cake…
