Bel Air bay club transformed into a speakeasy...

Do you know what a "blind pig" is? It is a 1920's code word for a speakeasy. Lauren and Martin transformed the Bel Air Bay Club into a blind pig for their amazing wedding. From the start they were going to do things their own way. The traditional Jewish ceremony took place after sunset, allowing us time to finish all portraits beforehand. Lauren has great taste and picked out eye catching details. The girls chose their own black dresses and carried flowers in these great purses.

The speakeasy theme started at the door where guests used the code word "blind pig" to get in the door. During the reception they were serenaded by a trio of singers while they had their photos taken in a vintage black and white photo booth. Drinks were served in mason jars. Martin is a beer lover in the club Pacific Gravity, so there was no shortage of amazing beers. Many food choices included sushi, lamb chops, two pastas, fresh cappuccino, and an ice cream station. I saw a lot of happy people that night aside from the couple and the beer connoisseurs.

Timing is so important especially when there are many events going on. The impeccable coordination was provided by Ryan Larson and her team at Savoir Flair Wedding Coordination. My team remarked many times that this was the most flawless event we have photographed thus far.
