        This was an Arlington Garden Wedding in Pasadena! The ceremony was held at the garden while the reception was held at a Los Angeles Peerspace location! Cutest. Venue. Ever. I love the Los Angeles area, I grew up here! Intimate wedding meets garden meets backyard with palm trees, it was perfection and nothing I could have dreamed up on my own!

        We started the day in AK and Mifa’s home to photograph AK getting ready. They have the cutest, most unique and homey living room I have ever seen so I knew we HAD TO GET SOME PHOTOS HERE! Later, we met Mifa at the Peerspace for reception details and the first look! Then, we went to the Garden for family photos, the ceremony, and bridals! Yup, THREE DIFFERENT LOCATIONS, but we made it happen like total bosses.

        Arlington Garden Wedding

        I have a not-so-secret fascination with gardens and nature-fulled areas. The ceremony was held under the massive peppercorn tree with a standing audience of 40ish most close and important humans. And a harpist was playing. Yeah, it was dang special.

        The Arlington Garden is the sweetest place to take a stroll and have an intimate wedding. It’s a small garden with various spaces and opportunities to take beautiful images. It isn’t as manicured as most, which is one of the things I love most about it.

        The ceremony was officiated by AK and Mifa’s best friend, David. And throughout the ceremony, family and friends came up to speak, read, and voice their love in various different ways from spoken poetry to speeches. It was beautiful and heart-filling.

        Peerspace Reception

        After the ceremony, friends and family went to the Peerspace for Cocktail hour while I explored the Arlington Garden with my bride and groom. After we took photos in the various different garden locations, they hand-wrote a note to attach in the wishing tree. Magical doesn’t even explain it.

        Booking a Peerspace for the night was tons cheaper than doing the reception in the Garden, it was also super close so it wasn’t a hassle! The reception started with a choreographed dance by the bride and groom. It was so freaking cool to watch them do their thing and to see the reaction of all their loved ones. The backyard had three different “stages.” Up top was the food, drinks, and cake. In the middle were the tables for reception, and all the way down below was the dance floor. It was such a unique set up.
