Simple Hindu Wedding

Found this stunning video on the Over The Moon site from a wedding we were a part of in 2011.  It was a beautiful wedding at the LA River full of color on culture.   Below we have included some of our Instagram videos from the night as well.  I love to see the polished videoographer and photogrophers picutes then cut to our posts of the party getting wild.



Event Ideas : Poetry done cool

As inspired by...

...Lauren & August's amazingly beautiful wedding who's backdrop was the ever dreamy Palm Springs and its ancient cacti.


...the historical Smoke Tree Ranch

Unique vendor...

Jacqueline Suskin and her Poem Store

It was so breathtaking to arrive at such a beautiful compound in the middle of Palm Springs.  As guests arrive, they were greeted with not only champagne (ps. despite what anyone says, this is a great way to start a wedding ceremony) and stunning cactus gardens, but also the romance of poetry.  Jacqueline sits at a wooden table with an old typewriter and a piece of paper.  Give her a subjest and she will create a memory for your guests to take home.  

What makes this vendor unique?

Suskin is a natural beauty with a sense of style.  Along with giving your guests something to walk away with, she creates a beautiful scene, with the vintage typewriter and trinkets, which sets the mode.




RIP Marvin...but HELLO Millwick

This past week we had a chance to DJ at the new Millwick in downtown LA.  Not only is the soundsystem amazing the space is a dream.  I was first impressed by the indoor gardens.  There is literally a forest around the dance floor.  The event was Droga5's annual dinner honoring the top 50 creatives in the advertising industry.  My favorite #girlboss Sofia Amoruso was there amongst others top cats.  We have a wedding coming up there which I am excited about because the courtyard is perfect for a cozy ceremony.  The Millwick gets our thumbs up.

Best Wedding Dance EVER!

Feeling a bit uninspired for your ceremonial wedding dances?  Or maybe your not really in the mood to dance with your dad to "My Girl"  Instead how about bring tears to your guests eyes and make it rain with some lil Wayne.
