The goal for this wedding styled shoot was to bring together a few amazing creatives in Los Angeles to produce an edgy, unique and sexy styled shoot. The color black was once a huge faux pas in the wedding world. Over the last 5 years black has emerged as a popular wedding color but it is normally coordinated with white. This modern and sexy black and gold wedding styled shoot incorporated the color black in a way that is very rarely seen – if ever.

Leslie Marie Events planned and styled the shoot. “We chose the designer Galia Lahav for the bride’s looks because their dresses are effortlessly sexy. Our model Simone is a natural beauty and we wanted to show off her gorgeous body in a graceful way.” 

The shoot really felt like a family reunion. The creatives I chose are on my preferred vendor list but they have also participated in major milestones in my personal life. The photographer, Katee Grace, photographed my sister’s wedding in August of 2017. Mallory, the florist, is my go to florist for our Southern California events. She DM’d me two years ago wanting to work together and we have been creating magic together ever since. She is not just a vendor, we have become great friends. The bride is my sister’s best friend from law school and the groom is one of my best friends. I have so many deep connections with all the vendors who participated and I think how comfortable we are working together was communicated through the photos.” – Leslie Marie Events
