los angeles wedding, marvimon- taylor & rafael

Taylor has worked as a wedding planner for years which meant she had no shortage of wedding ideas. Although her biggest inspiration came after a conversation with her Grandma. From Taylor- “My grandmother told me about how they had a sweet afternoon wedding at their church, followed by a cake and champagne reception. And I thought, why did that ever change? That sounds AMAZING; affordable, low stress, and to the point. Since we are very practical people it seemed like the perfect solution, so cake and champagne on a Friday afternoon it was!”

After their guests left with their bellies full of the three C’s (cheese, cake and champagne) we took off from The Marvimon for a photo adventure on Olvera Street and Chinatown. It was such a different and fun experience to shoot most of our portraits after the wedding. I’m still regretting not buying that Frida Kahlo mug at a booth we passed.
