Bright and cheerful with white, charcoal and cream wedding colors, I love Tram and Gregory’s LA wedding at Vibiana, originally published on December 17, 2010…
This pretty and sophisticated wedding of Tram and Gregory, photographed by Caroline Tran Photography, has simply won my heart! I love the bright white look and the feeling of modern romance that leaps from the pictures. Beautiful!
The Goals: Tram and Gregory’s stunning wedding was just what they imagined – a contemporary, sophisticated and elegant affair in the perfect setting – the dramatic Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles. Getting the location and food right were the most important goals for the day, and the rest was filled in by the work of talented professionals and fun family DIY touches.
The Design: Tram began her wedding design theme after discovering the silver dresses for her bridesmaids. She added charcoal and cream to the wedding color palette, and they all fit perfectly within the striking white venue, Vibiana. The wedding ceremony was held outside in the courtyard and flowers and a beautiful lush arch were added to give the surroundings a garden-like feel. Inside the reception the room was decorated with sleek white flower arrangements, charcoal tablecloths and wedding favor boxes and silver Chiavari chairs. The wedding cake from Phoenix Bakery was made of white cake, butter cream and fresh strawberries. Its clean white look with a sprinkling of pink orchids was the perfect touch of color in the room.
The Look: Tram’s wedding dress was designed by Jenny Lee and found at The White Dress. She wanted her look to be sophisticated and elegant, so she chose simple but beautiful designs. Tram’s favorite item to wear was the lace veil handmade by her sister, which matched the lace on her dress. The bridesmaids’ chic silver dresses were by Laundry by Shelli Segal, and Gregory wore a perfectly cut modern suit by Hugo Boss.
The Moments:When asked what her most memorable moment of the day was, Tram answered that “Every moment was memorable. From the time I had my makeup and hair done to the our very last dance.” but she especially loved walking down the aisle and seeing her friends, family and father looking at her. During the ceremony she got nervous, so she says “Gregory whispered very nice things to keep me calm.” So sweet!
