TOBI + GINA
Tobi + Gina were married on November 19th, 2016, at SmogShoppe, a hip and unique wedding venue in Culver City, CA!
Tobi + Gina got ready together in a beautiful suite at the Culver Hotel then headed over to SmogShoppe just a few miles away. SmogShoppe is a lush oasis with living succulent walls and style for miles. Every nook and cranny has something to look at and enjoy. Their ceremony was one of my favorites to date! Gina walked down the aisle with her father. He walked her to the living wall altar and turned around and walked back up the aisle to get Tobi. He then walked Tobi halfway down the aisle and took his seat. Tobi + Gina walked up the aisle (from different directions) to meet each other in the middle. Their wedding party surprised the guests with a beautiful A Cappella flash mob-style rendition of "Just The Way You Are" (the Pitch Perfect version). A few of their guests were in on it too, and they broke into song to the surprise of the guests next to them. Tobi and Gina stood in the middle of their closest family and friends while they showered them with love. T+G had a long hard road to get to this moment and you could feel the raw emotion of it all. There were smiles and tears all around.
The guests enjoyed fresh wood fired pizzas, drank delicious craft cocktails, and danced the night away. It was an intimate evening with their emotional and sincere community of family and friends and there was so much love filling up that room!
