Wedding Porn Wednesday Double Header – Part 2

Stephanie and Dave’s Gourmand’s Paradise

In Part 1 of our Wedding Porn Wednesday Double Header, you saw Katie and Josh’s Eco-Chic Wedding at Culver City’s Smog Shoppe. Today’s Part 2 features Stephanie and Dave, who turn the very same venue into a delicious and beautiful foodie’s paradise! <!–more–>

You can just tell from looking at these pics that this couple is super cool and joyful as can be. This is a party that I would have just loved to be invited to! Stephanie and Dave don’t take themselves too seriously, and approached their wedding by focusing on what matters to them — good food, good friends, and good times. There was no wedding party. They used fruits, vegetables, and seasonal flowers as decor. And the vibe was all-natural, organic fun!

I just adore these prep pics, and Stephanie’s entire wedding day look. She epitomizes bridal beauty by being comfortable in her skin and full of joy. Plus, I always admire/envy women like Stephanie, who have porcelain skin, doll-like features, and the cojones to rock a funky short ‘do and look fabulous in it.

While Stephanie was preparing for her walk down the aisle, very solemn preparations were taking place in the groom’s prep area.

This wedding is all about nature’s bounty. Even Stephanie’s bouquet has fresh herbs!

The tablescapes are simple yet genius. They combine natural floral elements with fruits, vegetables and porcelain bowls and vases, for an effect that’s natural and chic.

Stephanie and Dave opted for cream cheese frosting over fondant for their red velvet wedding cake, which creates a more organic, handmade look. It’s decorated with herbs and fresh fruit and was made by Stephanie’s friend Beth Creasey Griffiths of Whoa-Nelly events.

  1. Hi Stephanie! Sorry for the error, I’ve fixed it above and credited your friend for the cake. Thanks so much for sharing your pics with us, and congratulations on a wedding that looked like TONS of fun!

  2. Thanks for posting my wedding! One correction: the cake is red velvet with cream cheese frosting (not buttercream). Made by my friend Beth Creasey Griffiths of Whoa-Nelly events.
