        This Smog Shoppe Wedding has everything you’re looking for in a cute little LA venue. I second-shot this beautiful wedding for From the Dasies. And, it was so perfect.

        Smog Shoppe Wedding Venue

        In the concrete jungle that is Los Angeles, this is a small oasis. There are plants and greenery everywhere! The backdrop for the outdoor ceremony is a wall of succulents, AND they have vintage and pretty furniture. If you’re looking for a garden-like and vintage feel type of wedding venue, this is it.

        The Hall inside has the coolest vintage bookshelf wall which we used as a backdrop for bridals. It really gave the wedding day that unique feel.

        Aside from the very obvious perks this venue brings, it also has hidden closets and an upstairs area for the bridal party with a bright red couch and carpet. Even the ladies bathroom is ridiculously neat! The photo possibilities are endless in this seemingly tiny venue!

        The Couple

        Aside from opting for a sustainable and eco-friendly wedding, which made me love them immediately, oh my goodness this couple was the coolest and the sweetest. Their style was everything! They walked out of a vintage movie together and into this reality of ours. Luke is so funny and his hair is the absolute best. His suit came straight off of Amazon! They loved the color and texture… it was neat and unique, and soooo him. Kait is absolutely stunning and she is the kindest human. Her bouquet had dry florals! She focused her wedding on sustainability, and she did it in such a beautiful way!

        Second Shooting

        Second-Shooting a wedding means the main photographer hires me to help photograph the day. While the main photographer photographed the bride’s getting-ready and details, I focused on the groom and his groomsmen. It also means I might not be there the entire night, for this wedding I left during dinner, before the party. So those parts of the day were not photographed by me, and therefore will be lacking in this blog post. I’ve always wanted to photograph a Smog Shoppe Wedding and was thrilled to do it first as a second shooter.

        Hope you enjoy my take on the day!
