This Dreams Tulum Wedding is Unbelievably Classy and Chic

January 3, 2020 | brooke

We’ve never seen Tulum look so chic! Krystle and Ila’s Dreams Tulum wedding was filled with just the perfect touch of tropical with a modern, boho twist. The couple hired Lucy Gallagher Boutique Weddings to help them pull off their vision for a day that would keep the fun going all night long — and we are obsessed with every little detail! From the romantic, elegant floral arrangements designed by Cherry Blossom to the tables decked in fun, colorful rentals from Archive Rentals, this Dreams Tulum wedding truly has everything you could dream of. Get ready to swoon, because Kape Photography captured this day to perfection!

The Couple:

Krystle & Ila

The Wedding:

Dreams Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico

We asked one of our very good friends to officiate our wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made. Having known us individually and as a couple, he was able to tell stories unique to us and we felt he was the perfect person to join us and our families together in a way that was both touching and entertaining.

The most important thing to us was to make sure we kept the day fun. There’s no blueprint with wedding planning so we really leaned into that and tried to make it authentically us; eliminating unnecessary throwback customs that didn’t apply. There will always be some level of stress involved with wedding planning but we wanted to cut the unnecessary fat and keep things stress free and light where we could.

Lucy Gallagher helped us put together the wedding of our dreams. It can be tough planning a destination wedding but Lucy was on the ball from our very first call, throughout the wedding day, and after!

We wanted the vibe to be tropical and classy. We decided to stay away from traditional beach colors and wanted to bring the natural feel of Tulum into our event. We went with rich blues, golds, and reds with the all green reception area giving us the perfect backdrop for the color palette to really pop.

It’s corny, but honestly the best part was getting the chance to celebrate with friends and family. They made the day truly unforgettable.

Our favorite shots were taken during the processional and during the reception. We had a blast the entire day and were thrilled that our photographers and videographers were able to capture all of it perfectly!

We’re Totally Blushing Over This Pink Valentine DTLA Wedding

January 2, 2020 | brooke

What better way to celebrate your love than at a venue that has “valentine” in its name! We’re blushing over every detail of Grace and Jason’s pink Valentine DTLA wedding! Love Wildly Co. played off of the couple’s artistic and trendy vibes to create a unique theme that would feel exclusively “theirs” — so they decided on a modern, east-meets-west style for the day. We’re loving the non-traditional approach to using pink, including the dramatic bouquets designed by Jovial Floral Co. If you’ve been searching for just the perfect touch of pink inspiration, these photos by the talented Los Ebano are sure to drive you wild in the best way!

The Couple:

Grace & Jason

The Wedding:

Valentine, Los Angeles, California

Wedding planning advice from the bride and groom: Include details that embody your relationship. It’s your time to celebrate everything that is fun and unique about your love! Don’t focus on what you think others might want.

We had about 8 months to plan the wedding and we both knew we wanted a venue where we could have both the ceremony and reception, fit 200 guests comfortably and most importantly allow us bring outside catering. We must have saw 12+ venues before we decided on the Valentine. It had everything we were looking for and more!

We wanted to play off of that retro, tropical vibe that the venue already had but add a more romantic, yet minimal, modern feel to the event.

I was definitely inspired by one of our favorite films “In the Mood for Love.” The beautifully subdued photography and saturated, rich, luxurious colors in the film was definitely the inspiration to the overall color pallet of deep reds, fuchsias, pinks and white.

The Wedding Team:

Photography – Los Ebano
Event Planning – Love Wildly Co.
Wedding Venue – Valentine
Floral Design – Jovial Floral Co.
Catering – Hungry Bear Catering
Cake – Josephine LA
DJ – Vox DJs
Seating Chart & Signage – Love Wildly Co.
Makeup Artist – Grace Lin
Wedding Dress – Loho Bride LA

Congratulations, Grace and Jason, and many thanks to Love Wildly Co. for sharing their pink Valentine DTLA wedding with Junebug! If you loved this wedding, you’re sure to swoon over this playful pink and blue industrial Los Angeles wedding inspiration.
