Bride with arms around groom's shoulders

This week we have real wedding pictures to share with you from Melanie and Kelcey’s wedding in Los Angeles. This incredible wedding was actually won by the couple through a competition run by Yeah! Weddings, with every element of the day designed and provided free of charge. As there are so many incredible pictures we have split them into two features. Today we are sharing the pictures from the preparations, pre-ceremony couple shots and ceremony, with the remaining pictures from the day coming next week.

“Since we won the YEAH! Weddings’ free wedding, the style and design choices were entirely up to Bash, Please. For our wedding, they were inspired by stars and constellations, geometric shapes, and shades of blue and silver. I’ve been a huge fan of Bash, Please ever since we got engaged, so it was really a dream come true to have them design our wedding day for us.

“Studio 1342 is a beautiful loft space, with its bright white walls, cement floors, and raw wood ceilings. We couldn’t have asked for a better location.

“The Yeah! Rentals‘ team brought in some amazing mid-century modern pieces; I loved the Navajo style rugs and colourful chairs during the ceremony. Our guests were seated in a cluster of chairs, in a circle around us. It was an amazing feeling to have everyone we love so close. As Minister Myles told our love story, I loved looking to the friend or family member that had been a part of each memory.

“Our favourite memory from the day is definitely the ceremony. Minister Myles told our entire story, and we laughed a lot. Kelcey and I wrote our own vows, and it’s an amazing feeling to proclaim your love and feel so supported.”
