From the photographer, Lily Tapia Photography:
It’s our pleasure to introduce a retro-inspired, mid-century modern wedding in the city with a playful dusty color palette that represents the brightness of spring and laidback, California cool vibe including seafoam greens, romantic pinks, and playful yellows.
At Time with Terrazas, we specialize in all things weddings especially set in sunny Southern California! If you’re looking for one-of-a-kind urban indoor/outdoor space in Downtown Long Beach, The Grey LB is the perfect location for your intimate weddings and special events.
Bridal details with a whimsical, mid-century modern twist!
Our modern yet retro-inspired California bride wore a beautiful ivory gown from Saint Clark Bridal Suite. A wedding dress isn’t complete without the perfect pair of shoes! Our bride finished off her look with a fun and elegant pair of Badgley Mischka Isandora Fashion Booties in Ivory. We say ditch the classic pumps and have fun dancing the night away in modern booties with luxurious touches of dainty flowers and sparkling rhinestones! To top off her look, our gorgeous bride wore Kate Spade Floral Earrings in Rose Gold to complement the flowery inspirations of the day.
We are obsessed with this whimsical, bohemian bridal bouquet crafted by “Love Her Madly” with its fun mix of color pops, unique floral choices, and hand-tied ribbon by “Hey It’s Oh So Pretty”.
Let’s not forget about our handsome groom! Who says the groom can’t rock some fun colors on his special day, too? We love this dusty mauve suit choice from “Friar Tux” that complements the colors of the bridal bouquet.
Say yes to floral chandeliers! We love this gorgeous floral halo arrangement above the reception table for our intimate wedding. Our vision for these romantic floral arrangements was brought to life by “Love Her Madly”. We love how all of the colorful florals contrast and warm up the urban ambiance of the venue.
Our wooden modern flagship table with white Tolix chairs from “Modi Event Supply” creates the perfect look for a downtown California wedding! Our fun and creative menu cards serve a dual-purpose by including the guests’ seating assignments and dinner choices, all tied together with a unique, gold paper clip. This modern stationery set was created and designed by “Poppy and Birch CA”.
Desserts are a must at every wedding! So, why not mix it up with some fun mini pies in addition to the wedding cake? These adorable mini apples and mixed berry pies were baked by “Just What I Needed LA”.
An intimate, outdoor ceremony is absolutely perfect in the sunny Southern California weather. We are so amazed at the craftsmanship that “West and Rose” has put into creating this custom, colorful, retro-inspired ceremony backdrop. The linear color pops really create a statement against the blush pink background. It’s a bold way for the couple to showcase their one-of-a-kind artistic style and tie in all of the beautiful floral elements of their special day. Throw in some fun woven baskets and candles to make for some California cool, laid-back vibes.
The lounge area
Can we talk about this gorgeous, colorful mid-century modern lounge? We are obsessed with these unique furniture pieces! The seafoam green sofa and blush pink chairs are tied perfectly together with the complementing multi-colored woven rug. Let’s top it off with some gold and teal velvet pillows to add those eye-catching pops of colors!
The venue Grey LB is the perfect location for couples who are looking for a private wedding. It offers both a spacious outdoor area as well as a brick wall indoor location. Which reminds me of a loft in New York. This hidden gem is perfect for couples who are looking for an industrial vibe right close to Long Beach’s art district.
Downtown Long Beach
If you are looking to add a unique and fun twist to your romantic couples portraits, look no further than Downtown Long Beach. This city is bursting with a plethora of urban murals that will serve as gorgeous backdrops for your sweet, intimate couple’s photos. Have fun exploring and capturing the artistic treasures woven throughout the city. We highly recommend Downtown Long Beach as the setting for your special day as it’s a lively, artistic city by the beach. Just like your love – your special day and unique tastes should be expressed freely and vibrantly with a champagne toast to the retro past and modern future!
