A Sparkly and Sequiny Wedding

This last Sunday I attended the wedding of my college friends Tara and Ryker in LA and was in AWE of what an amazing and gorgeous wedding it was! Held at the famous and perfectly urban Smog Shoppe, Tara nailed every last detail of her girly, charming, and most importantly - sparkly wedding. Thanks in part to the amazing Carter and Cook Event Co. (one of whom I went to college with, and both of whom I will most likely hire to do my wedding someday - they do INCREDIBLE work! Check out their website and blog). From the gold sequin table cloths, gorgeous pink and red flower arrangements, red mylar heart balloons, succulent-filled wall, delicious Kogi Korean BBQ for dinner and donuts for dessert, to the heart shaped sparklers sending them off, I was in glitzy heaven. 

I'm so happy for you both, congrats on your beautiful day! So glad I got to be there to share it with you :)

Later they played a great dance montage video while we shook it on the dance floor

Gorgeous Tara!
