Smog Shoppe unique Wedding in la | Bridget & Dave

Hidden in plain sight in the heart of Culver City is an urban oasis covered in succulents  and kissed ever so gently with Palmspring's eclectic vintage vibe.  Honestly, If I were to throw an amazing eco-friendly hipster extravaganza this would definitely be the place!

Unique, intimate, and non-traditional are my go to vibes as far as wedding photography goes and this couple hit my style on the head! Bridget and Dave's wedding was just that. They decided to go for the non-wedding party route and even traded in the sit down dinner for a BBQ buffet and to top of the night they brought in  the most amazing 70s live band ever!
