Inspiration

A beautiful black-tie affair at Ebell Long Beach in Los Angeles with gorgeous luxe vibes. The black and white colour scheme was accompanied by gold highlights and accessories, from the Champagne shelves to the sweet stand! The bride walked down the candlelit aisle at the LA wedding venue in a Made with Love Bridal gown joined by her best girls who wore black bridesmaid dresses. She met her dapper groom - who wore a classic black tuxedo - at the altar under the draping white flowers! A day full of happiness and love!

What Made Our Day Unique

We chose Ebell for our special day for many reasons, but to just name a few: the gorgeous natural lighting, the array of textiles, and the romantic Spanish-style design. Traveling is a significant part of our relationship, and we believed this venue perfectly captured that. It felt as if we were saying “I do” in a villa overseas except with the convenience of being in our home city of LA. It was as if we gathered all our loved ones and took them on a trip across the world with us.

Black and White Colour Scheme

The black and white colour scheme was complemented with a touch of pampas grass, some green foliage and gold detail! Guests found their seats on the monochrome table plan and as they sat down for the wedding breakfast were surrounded by tall white floral centrepieces. The room was lit up with candles in glass holders, chandeliers and a personalised neon sign - such a romantic day!

Inspiration & Styling

Our venue has so much character and romance, we did not want to stray away from it. We chose to dress the venue with neutral tones, some green foliage to complement the white walls, and a touch of pampas to add a fun, modern twist to its classy vibe.
