Stained glass-inspired wedding ideas at The Ruby Street
Los Angeles friends, have you attended any events over at The Ruby Street in Highland Park yet? If you love modern, artistic design AND venues with a history (it was originally a church, built in 1905), this one is a must-see. Betsi Ewing teamed up with Pigsty and K2 Event Production to add a Mexican-inspired twist to the stained glass adorned space.
This Galia Lahav gown. Quite the show-stopper, no?
They incorporated blue, red, fuchsia, orange, and turquoise throughout, knowing the bold color would not only contrast with the white details, but give off an air of celebration, too.
Pigsty explains, Ruby Street is such a unique and beautiful venue with cathedral stained glass windows and eclectic décor, so the canvas we had to work with was already special. We wanted to find a design that was complimentary to the decor of the space, but also unexpected and unpredictable in nature. After brainstorming different design directions, we decided on a colorful modern Mexican theme that would be perfect for a summer wedding, utilizing fun, bright patterns with a mix of clean, natural elements—a look that we thought would work incredibly well in this event space.
And if you need a little bridal hairstyle inspo, this ‘do by Paige of BE.NYLA is a winner in our books.
In opposition to the color, we brought in natural elements by setting a long wooden table with distressed leather chairs arranged underneath a ceiling treatment of floral arrangements in terracotta pots hanging in woven macramé plant holders, which were then also used in the ceremony. Every detail was well thought out to correlate with the overall theme including the succulent cupcakes, mini flans, and churro bites for desserts and mini Casamigos tequila bottles inside shot glasses for escort cards.
Really digging all the different ways we’re seeing macramé pop up in modern weddings as of late. Not just a boho thing!
Like we said, dream venue! Be sure to check out the talents below to see more of their beautiful work…
