Melyssa and Joe | Carondelet House Wedding | Los Angeles Wedding Photographer

gorgeous venue, gorgeous dress, gorgeous couple. all was well with mel and joe's wedding day at carondelet house <3

from mel and joe:

"We wanted our wedding atmosphere to have a vintage, art deco, and eclectic vibe. We chose an intimate space that is actually an old Spanish style home from the 1920s. Having a variety of rooms to utilize for the full event was a huge selling point for us. We fell in love with the idea of guests being able to maneuver through different rooms so they could have a unique experience in each. With myself, the bride, being a graphic designer, it was super fun to create all of the paper products for the wedding myself, including the programs, menus, invitations, signs around the space, etc. Having full control over the final output and pairing it nicely with the decor items we selected helped bring the beautiful image I had envisioned in my head to life. We chose a theme of "lucky in love", relating to our tie to Friday the 13th. We met on Friday the 13th, had our first date a few months later on another Friday the 13th, and decided to get married on Friday the 13th. Incorporating 13 "fun facts" scattered around the venue in small frames helped bring it all together!"
