vibiana wedding

We ended Thanksgiving weekend with the wedding Mr. and Mrs. Hipster. Mrs. Hipster is known to be a fabulous fashionista and the invitation had let us know to dress to impress so I was definitely excited.

The event was held at the Vibiana in Downtown and since I've never been, the event addict in me was excited to scope out the venue.

It was a beautiful clear day in DTLA but the LA crowd was not loving the 60 degree weather.

The Vibiana was an old church converted to event space so you get beautiful vaulted ceilings with cathedral architecture. Even without the pews, the altar in the front reminds you that it was once a church. The vaulted ceilings also make for crazy acoustics and the DJ had to place extra speaker in the back of the room because there was so much of an echo. Carpeting or draping the space may help a bit but then you'd lose the beautiful dark hardwood floors.

The ceremony took place outside in the courtyard secluded by tall shrubbery. The whole thing felt very New York rooftop since you could look up and see tall buildings surrounding you.

The couple kept a white theme with black accents. The bridesmaids were asked to wear a white dress of their choosing (sadly, did not get good photo). Fab-u-lous. Very Carrie Bradshaw. Simple arrangements in white containers made the space itself the focus on the night.

What's that brown bottle doing there you ask? It's maple syrup for the chicken and waffles we were noshing on later that evening! I can definitely say I've never had chicken and waffles in my wedding best. While inside an old church building. :) But I'd expect nothing less from Mrs. and Mrs. Hipster.

We had a great time - thank you E & D!!! Congratulations!!! xoxo
