Hollywood Glamour meets Tar Pits!

Congratulations Sam and Emily!

Image

 These two took their love of working in the film industry and turned it into one amazing wedding!

Image

The ceremony took place on the upper terrace of the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits overlooking the open-air atrium.This is a beautiful space that easily fit their 100 guests. Standing along the railing the couple took their vows as the sun set behind them over the Hollywood Hills. 

Image

Personally, my favorite touch was the film canisters filled with flowers!

Image

After a enjoying cocktails on the western side of the terrace, guests were greeted by a costumed usher and directed into the museum’s Hancock Theater. With 3-D glasses in hand, they settled into watch Sam and Emily, along with their bridal party, star in their own film full of mystery and adventure!

Image

Dinner took place on the west side of the museum gallery which can seat up to 250 for dinner. 

Image

The fossils were lit in an array of blues and greens which complimented our bright yellow dire wolf wall nicely!

Image

Table centerpieces and the photobooth continued the Hollywood theme with lanterns and costumes fashioned after all the characters in the 3-D film!

Southern Charm Wedding at the La Brea Tar Pits

A sunset ceremony on the terrace and cocktails overlooking the a lush atrium, who wouldn’t find the La Brea Tar Pits the perfect place for a wedding?

AprilSmithPhotography_23

A beautiful fall day provided set the scene for Becca and Ben’s wedding at the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits. And, as always, local street musician Charlie Cox was at his usual post serenading the guys with his catalogue of music!

AprilSmithPhotography_20

Inside the museum the open air atrium was a great place for the couple to have a first look and make use of the tropical setting for some amazing photos! 

AprilSmithPhotography_02

Once tended by George C Page himself, the atrium is the center of the Page Museum.  This popular exhibit is a quiet spot to stop, take a breather and enjoy the nature. 

AprilSmithPhotography_03

Becca and Ben chose to have their ceremony on the Page Museum Terrace overlooking the atrium and has sweeping views of the La Brea Tar Pits, Hancock Park and the Hollywood Hills. Their 120 guests easily fit in the space and everyone had a great view!

AprilSmithPhotography_33

The arbor  full of local flowers as well as flowers from Ben’s native Australia provided a stunning backdrop for the couple during the ceremony.

AprilSmithPhotography_35

After cocktails on the terrace, guests moved into the Page Museum for dinner with an ice age theme.

AprilSmithPhotography_40

Each table was labeled with an ice age mammal and actual fossils stood guard over the terrariums and tiny ice age mammal figurines. 

AprilSmithPhotography_39

After dinner everyone passed under the tusks of the Columbian Mammoth on their way to the dance floor!

A Toast to Southern California at the Page Museum!

On Thursday May 12, we were happy to partner with Get Married and Wish Wonder Dream Wedding Coordination at the George C. Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits! This event brought together wedding professionals from all over Southern California to sip, taste and experience some of the best wedding vendors in Southern California!

The Main Gallery of the museum was strewn with cocktail tables on the west side where guests were served drinks underneath a Columbian Mammoth! The east side of the museum had delicious finger foods from Truly Yours Catering.

DJFX Entertainment set up their music and a dance area in the timeline section of the museum, a popular place for the dance floor!

Please enjoy these photos from inside the main gallery:

We also got this opportunity to show off the upper terrace of the museum. The terrace is open-aired and looks down in the museum’s atrium where cocktails were being served.

While the terrace is exceptionally beautiful in daylight…

…nighttime brought out a whole new attitude!

And who could forget the goodies?

Thank you to the evening’s sponsors:
