After selecting the Carondelet House in Los Angeles, California, Andrew and Patricia, with the help of their amazing planners at Splendor and Bliss, chose décor pieces that would only accentuate the cozy atmosphere of the venue. Weathered red brick walls, lush ivory florals, and rustic wooden tables created a romantic, close-nit design that was perfect for their intimate wedding. Studio Castillero photographed the big day beautifully!
Andrew and Patricia
Carondelet House, Los Angeles, California
Andrew and I knew we wanted a intimate and simple wedding, to celebrate with our closest family and friends. I have always loved everything vintage, so I made sure to thrift for my own vintage trunks, love poems and books, and décor pieces. Carondelet was just the perfect venue, since it felt like we were celebrating in our own home! I also wanted to make sure that my bridesmaids picked their own dresses. Each of them are so unique and special in their own way, and it was important for me to let them express that. The main colors were different hues of blues, gold, grey with light touches of pink to soften it all. As far as my dress, I just knew since I was a girl that my gowns needed to be lace. It all tied together to have a very romantic-vintage theme.
Patricia: EVERY SECOND OF IT! I was just overwhelmed with such love and happiness the whole time. To be able to share such a big part of your life with your closest family and friends, meant the world to me. But a huge, special moment for me, was being able to surprise my mom with her birthday cake. Her birthday was the day after our wedding, and I wanted her to know that through it all, she is my best friend and I wanted to thank her for being such an amazing mother. She has taught me so much in life, and I am eternally grateful.
Andrew: Our wedding vows. It wouldn’t be a wedding without our vows, and those are the words we will live by until the end.
The Couple Recommends:
A BIG shout out to our photographers, Megan and Brent. We couldn’t have asked for a better pair to document our day. Not only are they so talented, but such great people to be around. They did such an amazing job of capturing all the special moments during our engagement session, and the wedding day. Probably two of the nicest people I have ever met in my life, and such a darling couple themselves! They embody so much love and fun, it felt like they were guests partying right next to us. Also want to say a BIG THANKS to our wedding planners, Kelly and Judith! They made sure that we were on track during the planning process, and provided such great advice and suggestions. Couldn’t have done this without them!
