This City Club LA wedding an absolute pleasure to be a part of. It was a blend of cultures, filled with lots of prayer and love. The grooms family is from Jamaica and the bride grew up in Whittier, CA.
The moment I spoke with Courtney on the phone, I knew that their wedding would be the most epic celebration. From start to finish their love was at the center of all their decisions and was felt by everyone who attended.
Courtney and Aj shared an intimate first look away from their loved ones before the ceremony. For instance, Aj’s reaction says it all. After that, they headed to their stunning ceremony.
From an intimate communion to a shared prayer by all during the ceremony it was a beautiful experience. Not only did the way AJ looked at Courtney walking down the aisle bring the guests to tears but the sunset backdrop was unbelievable. City Club LA weddings truly provide an unreal backdrop that is totally “LA” with a perfect city view.
Together Creative captured the entire day from start to finish in the most perfect way. Sometimes weddings that are in downtown LA don’t have a ton of options for wedding party photos. However, before the wedding I researched parks nearby and we got lucky with a perfect location across the street from the venue.
One of my favorite memories of this City Club LA wedding was the music played! There was a variety of music that represented AJ’s family from Jamaica as well as Courtney’s roots. The ceremony recessional song was “Gyal you a Party Animal” by Charly Black and remains one of my favorites to date. A Jamaican steel drummer played upon guest arrival and during cocktail hour which was a special and unique touch.
Similarly with the music selection, a Jamaican cake from the mother of the groom added a special touch. I used some extra decor to dress it up next to their traditional wedding cake from Carlos Bakery in Santa Monica.
Not only did they have two cakes but they also had an ice cream stand by Mr. & Mrs. Creamery that was a huge hit.
The best surprise of the night was a dance by the bride and groom that shocked their guests! It had lifts and twists and even an outfit change from the groom!
Above all, this City Club LA wedding was epic and I’m so honored to have been a part of it.
