Break out your colorful dresses and dancing shoes, because Christina and Jay are hosting the party of a lifetime! The two lovebirds got married in Downtown LA, at an urban industrial venue dressed with vibrant florals and adorable details that lead to an enchanting event, all captured by the incredibly talented San Luis Obispo wedding photographer Alexandra Wallace. I had the pleasure of interviewing the bride about the special day.

Their Love Story
"Thanks to some luck and the power of the internet, we met for the first time in a classic Seattle dive bar called Linda's. Little did Jay know, Linda's was located right beneath my apartment building. This was very convenient for me, since I had friends to pick up at the airport that evening (and it provided an out, just in case) No escapes were needed by either party--although Jay briefly considered one when he saw me order a Bud Light (embarrassing). It was the best first date of all time, but I may be biased on that point. Many dates later and Jay proposed on an amazing trip to Southeast Asia. Easiest yes of all time!"
"Balinese urban abba disco industrial chic"
"We had a venue with lots of greenery so we went with lots of corals, pinks, and golds to complement the space!"
"We had an amazing caterer (Whoa Nelly) who created an incredible dining experience for our guests and our officiant flew in all the way from Australia and gave us the most beautiful fun ceremony."
"We partied so hard the disco ball came crashing to the ground (!) nobody was hurt and the party kept going but brings a whole new meaning to bringing the house down!"
Knowing what you know now... what advice would you have for other brides planning their weddings?
"It's y'all's day so do what you love and know that your family and friends will have a great time so long as you're true to yourself!"
What was the most challenging part about planning your wedding?
"We had to plan from Australia (we were living abroad at the time) and the wedding was in Los Angeles. Made it a bit difficult for vendor meetings and such."
