Holly + Brett are a truly unique couple, so their wedding at The Commons had to stand out! Exposed brick and pipes made this the perfect statement venue. Laid back, sentimental, and so much fun, their wedding incorporated their personalities into every detail. Find out what they swapped out instead of the traditional wedding cake, bouquet or guestbook!
Fun details like this pair of vintage typewriters as a guestbook alternative, made Holly + Brett’s wedding so unique.
Carefully selected vintage pieces create a warm and inviting lounge area instead of having a typical signing table for their marriage document. We later added a few pieces to make it the ideal hangout when dancers needed a break.
In place of a bouquet, Holly opted for handmade fabric flowers on her couture dress.
For their “I Do’s” they went with this pretty hanging greenery installation and vignette of vintage crates and candles instead of a traditional arch. Greenery garlands on string lights draped from the ceiling rafters, among exposed pipes. Their ceremony was both intimate, and personal.
Leading up to the big day, Brett worked hard on his 1960 Chevy Bel Air so that he could drive his Bride Holly away in it after the ceremony. During Cocktail Hour, Brett and several of the couples’ friends and family showcased their classic cars.
No traditional wedding cake here, Holly + Brett opted for a vintage popsicle cart from Family Freezed. The popsicle sticks were even personalized with their names and wedding date!
To keep guests going through the night, Holly + Brett brought in a Food Truck for late night snack. You can never go wrong with pizza. Especially when it’s your wedding at The Commons and pizza from an Inglewood hot spot.
