Inspired by a classic French picnic, Stephanie and Ted’s Elysian LA wedding married chic style with the warmth of gathering friends and family together over good food and music. Their sophisticated black and white decor designed by Button Events was accented brilliantly with touches of bright pink, soft aqua, and dazzling gold. We definitely can’t talk about our love for this wedding without mentioning Stephanie’s custom gown from The Rio Collection — how precious is that bow!
Stephanie and Ted
Elysian LA, Los Angeles, California
It would be a very simple yet classic French picnic. I wanted to do something simple but chic and warming, minimizing the simplicity of the beautiful venue and peppering in my style with touches of bright pink, local florals and many DIYs projects. Such as printing 130 menus on individual bread sleeves, purchasing napkins from Muji and wrapping each one with a printed holder to a photo wall covered with over 100 handmade tissue papers for the backdrop.
My favorite moment was when we were at the alter, we were so nervous, but I had the chance to look around at the guest and then at Ted, and realized how incredibly blessed we were to have so many amazing family members and friends from around the world gather at this one single place for ‘us’. How special and lucky and loved we felt.
