When asking wedding couples their theme, the idea is not to come up with something cartoonish or kids-party-esque, but to have a springboard into a sophisticated aesthetic and influence over the food, beverage, and music. With this recent SmogShoppe wedding, the theme was Latin Speakeasy. The decor of rich reds and lush greenery, a tequila bar, and touches of charm such as Spanish signage and a DIY boutonierre bar for guests fulfilled the couples’ vision of a playful yet classy ambiance.
We assisted in helping find a great food and beverage vendor (Rasta Taco/Huntington Catering Company), sourcing design details such as signage and escort cards (The Apothecary Bee) and dessert + greeting tables, and provided florals as well. Our bride was a so clever at finding perfect touches online and elsewhere, including vintage postcards and gold votive candles. We also sourced trays and materials for the greeting table and dessert table, including hand stenciling and distressing wood crates for a customized accent.
