Studio 1414 // Lawrence & Johnny


With no set traditions for same-sex couples, Lawrence and Johnny had complete freedom to create an unparalleled event.  For their celebration we transformed Studio 1414, a photography studio, into a unique and fun experience for their guests.  The couple utilized the same space for both the ceremony and reception without the need for a flip.  We mixed things up and started with a cocktail hour followed by an informal, standing ceremony with guests surrounding the couple and officiant, creating a very intimate setting with their closest friends and family.  For their free flowing reception, they provided food stations which featured charcuterie and favorites from Johnny's native Korea.  The event continually evolved from dinner to dancing, darts and pool to amazing mini desserts and later to a create your own ramen bar! Lawrence and Johnny wanted to embrace their personal style in regard to both the attire and décor.  They looked very handsome in their casual attire and the décor spoke to the relaxed feel of their celebration and their love for mid century modern decor.  Edison bulbs were suspended from the ceiling; the round tables, high tops and wooden tables were lined with orange detailed linens; warm florals brightened the space; and modern lounge groupings were brought in to enhance the intimate feel of the wedding.  

It turned out to be a beautiful and relaxed evening for family and friends of this {now} Los Angeles based couple! Check out the images below of Lawrence & Johnny's special day!
