This is the story of Sarah and Gian’s ACE Hotel Los Angeles wedding. They got ready in a retro-inspired, modern room at the ACE and then tied the knot and partied their hearts out at the Millwick Marvimon in the heart of the Arts District.
Surrounded by the bustle of the city, they threw a big party to celebrate their love. Their day was filled with bright colors, sparkly details, and their beloved dog was one of the main stars of the event. Even their outfits fit the inspiration; Gian decked out in bold color and Sarah wearing a silver sequin dress. The epic floral design included tinsel installations that filled the space with so much color and character. Their party ended with neon heart ice cream cake and dancing the night away under flashing disco balls.
Some words from Sarah on the inspiration that went into planning their day:
“Tropical disco” was one of the original descriptors I had for our wedding vision when we first talked to our wedding planner, Kari. I also love maximalist design, so I knew I wanted the decor to be really bright and in-your-face. We also really wanted the whole day to be more like a big party than a traditional wedding, so that drove a lot of the bold color choices and sparkly accents.”
