Jill and Evan's Circus-Themed Wedding
Over the weekend, The Boyfriend and I had the good fortune of having two of our friends, Jill and Evan, get married. The wedding was nothing short of fantastic, and Circus-themed to boot.
If it's any indication, I took 278 pictures over the course of 4 hours. I loved every minute of it, every detail. I was so incredibly impressed with how cohesive the whole event was from start to finish. It's going to be tough to narrow down the 278 pictures for you here, but I'm going to do my best to try!
When we arrived at the venue, Vibiana in downtown L.A., there were clown-noses on everyone's chairs!
The 10 bridesmaids wore short, strapless dresses from David's Bridal, similar to this one. The groomsmen had matching red ties with their black suits.
The bride's beautiful dress was a strapless number with rhinestone accents, and multiple tiers of chiffon cascading to the floor. Jill is a stand-up comedienne (I know, right? How cool is that?) and her fun and humorous personality was shown throughout the whole wedding, even in her shoes.
The flowers were gorgeous. Two gigantic multi-colored bouquets stood at the back of the room, while over a dozen cylindrical glass vases held red roses up front. Her bridesmaids each had a bouquet made of one single variety of flower, while Jill's bouquet was a smaller version of the large bouquets in the room.
After the short but extremely sweet and surprising ceremony (the groom's best friend for over 20 years officiated, in a move no one expected or was aware of, including the bridal party and the parents), it was time for some cocktails and some fun. Among the many activities was a photo booth, complete with costumes. Popcorn and finger foods such as mini tacos, corndogs and sliders were served.
Of course, there were people at the wedding too...
One of my absolute favorite things were the centerpieces on the tables at the reception. Comprised of Dr. Seuss-looking gerber daisy arrangements, some in popcorn containers, statues of clowns, boxes of Cracker Jacks, Ring Pops, Animal Crackers, raffle tickets and big glass vases filled with peanuts.
Entertainment included, what else? Circus performers!
The bride and groom seemed to be having a good time too! The theme even continued with the cake.
By the end of the night, everyone was feeling the love...
