Amanda + Oliver = Married at Rec Center Studio in Echo Park!

Amanda and Oliver had a small and intimate ceremony on Saturday evening that was just so lovely and full of the happiest of emotions. They asked me to document the ceremony for them and I was so honored to do so! Their venue was the perfect place for a unique ceremony complete with some adorable details.

Amanda and Oliver, thank you so much for letting me document your very touching ceremony. I wish you a lifetime of happiness together!

Venue: Rec Center Studio in Echo Park, CA.
Coordinator: Tiffany The Coordinator
Catering: Large Marge Sustainables


Loved the little touches that could be found throughout the venue. Bonus points to anyone who can guess which figurine on the tables was my favorite!


Mmmm…exposed brick walls and a cool fireplace…


Two other things I love: bow ties and succulent boutonnieres.


Love the look on Amanda’s face here when she popped out from behind the curtain to walk down the aisle with her dad. She looks so excited! Also, check out her adorable dress and awesome blue shoes. Love it.


Amanda and Oliver had several guests read aloud lines from their favorite love songs. It brought a very fun and personal element to the ceremony and got everyone involved.
