Smog Shoppe Wedding / Gina & Todd
A Vintage Chic Los Angeles Wedding
Gina and Todd had their Smog Shoppe Wedding at one of the more unique [and hard to book] venues in Los Angeles. As the name suggests, Smog Shoppe is a converted car garage in Culver City with the highlight being an entire wall of beautiful succulents to get married in front of. Gina and Todd were going to for a really great vintage chic look for their wedding and the venue couldn’t have been more perfect.
What a fun bouquet! Succulents were a theme at the wedding and tied in perfectly with the enormous green wall outside.
While there was a lot to work with initially at Smog Shoppe, you can see the detail elements they added worked seamlessly with all the great pieces that were already there. One of Gina and Todd’s favorite things to do is go searching through the various vintage shops of Long Beach, where much of their wedding collection was found.
Hair with style! Even the restroom at Smog Shoppe had a unique styling all its own.
You can tell instantly that Gina and Todd are completely meant to be together. Capturing moments like an emotional first look is what makes wedding photography so gratifying.
The wonderfully emotional ceremony took place in the courtyard in front of the succulent wall. Gina and Todd’s huge smiles clearly set the tone for the event, everyone was just beaming afterwards.
Nothing I love more than a good exit and bubbles played a perfect part! Gina and Todd passed out bubble blowers to people in the aisles and it made for a ton of fun for everyone!
Huntington Catering did a great job with the fun menu, tons of excellent comfort foods.
