Spoiler Alert: Andrea wore a CAPE, and rocked Stan Smith Adidas at their reception… They know how to throw a party!
From Andrea: I found my dress on Pre-Owned Wedding Dresses and it’s made by Jenny Yoo. It fit like a glove when purchased and needed very minor alterations. I met the previous owner of the dress, it was a very special connection. She let me try the dress on in her home, and we both cried together (happy tears) when I realized it was perfect. Very excited to give it a second life. My cape was custom-made by my friend and pattern-maker Raquel Workman, shoes are Kate Spade heels and Stan Smith Adidas sneakers (for dancing).
Invites were a collaboration by hired designer, Amanda Artinger, and local letterpress company, Creative Letterpress, Inc. out of Burbank. They were one of the few small business local vendors who carried rose gold foil to help give the invitation a special touch. Amanda Artinger, also helped design the save the dates, invitations, printed signage, and our wedding favors (pizza shark pins: Pizza is Andrea’s favorite interests. Sharks are Sean’s favorite special interest since he was a kid).
Laura says, “they asked on a whim if we could stop by Donut Friends while we were doing their portraits around Eagle Rock…. and I almost cried tears of joy! What a FUN pair (plus I was kind of starving as well) 😉 and yeah, I was looking forward to Border Grill catering, but a vegan donut + major cute photo opp + YES!”
Andrea and Sean, danced the night away with friends and family listening to their favorite band! I hope you feel inspired to design and plan a wedding that is completely you! We also want to thank Laura Ford for allowing us to feature her beautiful work.
