Modern Eclectic Madera Kitchen Wedding in the Heart of Hollywood

October 29, 2019 | brooke

Calling all Vegan-friendly, thrift shop lovers: Michelle and Matthew’s eclectic Madera Kitchen wedding in Los Angeles will set your hearts on fire! The couple knew their wedding would be green and full of texture, which is exactly what planning team Redlight Special Events set out to create. We’re obsessed with all of the eucalyptus and stunning arrangements East Rooted Florals created, as well as sentimental, thrifted finds like a wooden room divider that set the tone for the entire day. Pro tip: Dried florals and thrifted items both make for awesome home decor after the big day. We’re all about re-use of wedding materials! Get ready to fall for every moment Eve Rox Photography brilliantly captured—from vegan donuts via Donut Friend to the couples sweet sparkler exit!

The Couple:

Michelle & Matthew

The Wedding:

Madera Kitchen, Los Angeles, California

Wedding inspiration is crucial! I love some boho feels but also love a classic vibe. Inspiration helps stir up your imagination and gets you on the right track helping you pull your look all together! I absolutely loved my dress and accessorizing it was my favorite part. I wanted to have some statement pieces to make my wedding day look and feel like my everyday looks. I bought my beaded heels secondhand as well as my cream colored wide brim hat! I think the hat was my favorite, especially with the dried flowers!

Wedding planning advice from the bride: Try to balance out the duties between each other! Find the things each of you are interested in and have them be in charge. It helped us and we never felt too overwhelmed. Get creative with DIY and thrift decor. Communicate and have patience, it will all come together! The most important thing to us when it came to planning our wedding was to enjoy the process and to keep it as intimate as possible. Matt loved doing spreadsheets and timelines and I loved working on the decor so we found a balance and really enjoyed it!

I cannot say enough good things about our photographer Eve! There were so many amazing photos! I think our favorite is the shot of us outside of the iron gate. We couldn’t believe it was us! Working with her was the easiest part about the wedding. She was always went above and beyond our expectations. She was involved throughout the whole year and made a point to be extremely friendly and helpful. We felt like we really knew her so that when the day came, we felt comfortable and genuine. Her assistant was just as amazing. They captured everything!

Our venue hunt was challenging, neither of us had a dream plan so we considered all options! We were back and forth on eloping but decided to have a small wedding with family. We wanted to find something that was green, urban, and customizable to fit our style! That’s when we discovered Madera Kitchen. It was all of those things and more. It felt homey, green all in the heart of Hollywood.

We had a great team of wedding professionals! We are so grateful to have worked with them all. Our florist made it such a beautiful experience, we even saved the dried palms from the ceremony for home decor! I do have to say our photographer Eve was absolutely phenomenal. She truly loves what she does and is extremely professional and goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and excited about your big day. Also, our Dj Wes from good mood was so awesome! He was very reliable and gave us free reign to choose our music but also offer his professional advice. He made the dance floor flow seamlessly into a killer dance party!

We are vegan and tried to have a friendly menu to appeal to everyone. We had great veggie appetizers like hummus and pita, flat breads, and veggie burger sliders. For entrees we had vegan veggie lemon pasta, vegetarian ravioli, and to be fair to our more carnivorous family we added a pineapple white fish dish! We had a beautiful desert table with favorite vegan donuts from Donut Friend. We actually bonded over a box of these donuts the first time we met!
