The Smog Shoppe, Culver City

Who would ever think that an old Smog Shoppe in Culver City could be the perfect venue for a romantic, whimsical wedding? Luckily, Rebecca Stone of Duet Weddings did, and her clients Peggy and Chris readily agreed.

The stage was set with an eclectic mix of décor. Everything from the mismatched chairs to the assortment of vintage vases sitting atop moss runners on the long family style dining tables served to charm. Instead of a traditional cake, a “buffet” of cookies was on hand for guests to enjoy. Yeah, okay the photographers may have enjoyed them as well.

I especially loved the escort card display and menu board. They stood over 6 feet tall and had a chalk board like appearance.

With Peggy being in the Reality TV. biz, a video confessional was set up for guests to tape their advice and good wishes to the newlyweds.

While all of this was really fun to photograph, what really made the day lovely and special was Peggy and Chris’ graciousness and warmth. They are the kind of people that upon meeting, you feel like you’ve been friends forever. It’s been truly a pleasure getting to know them
