When a wedding showcases as much gorgeous color as Krystal + Russell’s joy-filled celebration at Millwick in Downtown Los Angeles, we know we are in for a major treat! These two met while Russell (a musician) was playing a show, and given their history, it made perfect sense to incorporate some fun musical elements into the decor. In addition to that, a gorgeous jewel-tone palette and a few chic, feminine touches gave the venue a lush, layered look and to achieve their ideal wedding setting, K + R smartly teamed up with Michelle from Coordinator, M.D (Russell’s cousin!), Angela from Revelry Event Design, and Sharon from Knot Just Flowers. What was created by this team was a fun feast for the eyes + we’re pretty sure you’re about to be inspired!
Krystal shares, We wanted our wedding day to reflect romance with a little bit of edginess and glamour. We felt it was very important to express our individual personalities as well as who we are as a couple. We definitely had fun with color, textures and embraced the fact that a wedding doesn’t have to be all about white.

So much love for this peony + anemone bouquet. And those ribbons? Too good!
The most memorable moment was definitely our “first look”. At first we were a little hesitant at doing a first look as we wanted to capture that first moment walking down the aisle. But looking back we are so glad we did it this way. Your wedding day is so emotional and I felt like it gave us the chance to share that super special moment and really take it all in. It still didn’t affect that moment walking down the aisle, if anything it gave us the chance to put all jitters aside and really take in every moment of the ceremony. It’s like every single second of your wedding day is like seeing that person for the first time… its magical.

The jewel-tone palette carried through the reception, where guests dined on cuisine from Billotti’s Catering at long, family style tables.
This sweets display from Sweet and Saucy is way too gorgeous!
There is so much that goes into a wedding…and I cannot stress enough how much we relied on our wedding planner Michelle Dixon and my close friend Angela Murelli. They were so helpful in every way possible and really encouraged us to follow our overall vision. We quickly learned that it was key to pick out the things that were most important to us… ex: food, décor, or whatever that might be. Concentrate on those things and really make them all about your personality and likes. Just remember you will have a ton of people trying to give you advice on what they like, but at the end of the day it is really about what you want as a couple, so make this day as fun and unique as possible. Lastly, just remember to breathe… everything will be perfect.
