SHERI + ZAK
Location: Greenhouse at Platform in Culver City, California
Wedding Style: Tropical, Hawaiin, Palm Springs,
Wedding Colors: Monstera leaf green and white
Wedding Priorities: Delicious food, dance party, fun
Sheri + Zak were the first and only couple to get married at the Greenhouse in Culver City at Platform LA. We took a completely blank canvas and built a tropical/ Palm Springs/Hawaii inspired wedding from the ground up. We planned and executed this logistically challenging wedding for 175 guests in two months flat. Yes, you heard right, we are totally crazy! The Greenhouse didn't have running water, a kitchen, or a bathroom. We had to bring in everything and the kitchen sink! I'm talking a 5-page rental list and a separate moving truck dedicated to flowers and decorations! Planning and executing this tropical wedding was a logistical beast but we pulled it off with a talented team of Los Angeles wedding vendors!
Photographer, Hannah Costello, captured the fun and playfulness of Sheri + Zak. Our incredibly talented Floral Designer, Janet Siemsen of Bello Petalo, created tropical floral installations that hung throughout the venue and she created so much character and eye candy within the blank space. Zak & Sheri got married on the upper outside deck that overlooks the Metro Expo line just before sunset. Birds of Paradise, King protea, pincushion protea, red ginger, and monstera leaves lined the concrete wall turning the ceremony space into a tropical oasis. A few lucky guest were able to watch the ceremony from a tropical and eclectic lounge designed by Thrifted Sister Vintage.
CATERING, LIBATIONS, & ENTERTAINMENT
We had a live action sushi station during cocktail hour, two full bars with signature cocktails, a photo booth, a "love + donuts" donut wall custom made by Sheri's father, a freshly baked cookie bar, and a 3-tiered tropical wedding cake. The guests were treated to a delicious southern comfort family-style meal from Blood Sweat & Butter and they danced their butts off to a rocking dance party thanks to DJ WesLee of Redshoe LA.
