You all are going to love all the details shots Mandilynn Photography snagged of J + A’s SmogShoppe wedding. They didn’t have a theme per se, but they did want it to be fun, modern, and personal. Jeanne says, We incorporated our favorite colors and things into the design and ended up with a hodgepodge of black & white stripes, pinks, reds, our Asian heritages, Hot Wheels, pugs, and Star Wars!
Andy was pretty easygoing about all the planning details, but SmogShoppe was one big YES!
Jeanne’s modern bouquet had peonies, anemones, lisianthus, and eucalyptus. She says, We planned for a year, on and off. The biggest hurdle was when our original florist dropped out the week of our wedding. Fortunately, with tremendous help from family, we arranged, delivered, and set up 90 vases with minimal stress! And we were able to book a new florist last minute to create the bouquets and boutonnieres. Tips for those planning: Don’t hire a non-professional as a vendor without a contract and contingency plan. Something is bound to go wrong during wedding planning. Just be flexible, have fun, and remember that your wedding is going to kick butt regardless!
How fun is this? They created all décor (the marquee, thousand crane display, chair silhouettes, signage), centerpieces, table runners, ceremony fans, menus, and goodie bags for the little ones.
I found Mandilynn Photography when looking for dresses on Instagram! One of her past brides wore a Katie May dress like mine. We loved Mandi’s photography style. Upon meeting her, it was her easygoing personality and clear expertise that clinched the deal for us! We hate being in front of the camera, and she knew how to put us at ease from the get go.
