Ellie & Adam’s Wedding at Rolling Greens Los Angeles

Ready for an incredibly colorful, fun, unique wedding that was planned in record time?! Ellie and Adam (seen here at their engagement session) were so excited to get married that they decided to plan their wedding in three months! They incorporated their love for Los Angeles, their Jewish faith, bold colors, graffiti, and nods to Russian culture in their wedding at Rolling Greens DTLA. This was Rolling Greens‘ very first wedding at their new venue, and it was the perfect fit for Ellie and Adam’s vision. Shindig Chic and Details, Darling helped bring everything to life, and A+E’s wedding was featured here on Green Wedding Shoes!

Ellie and Adam did their ceremony as close to sundown as possible to keep with Jewish tradition, which meant we had about 10 minutes before the daylight was entirely gone! We popped onto the street outside of Rolling Greens for some quick portraits. Bride and groom walking at sunset www.marycostaweddings.comBride and groom with veil www.marycostaweddings.com Bride and groom walking with graffiti www.marycostaweddings.com Colorful bride bouquet by Shindig Chic www.marycostaweddings.com Bride and groom in DTLA www.marycostaweddings.com Celebratory bride and groom www.marycostaweddings.com Bridal makeup by James Charles www.marycostaweddings.com Bride and groom walking in DTLA Arts District www.marycostaweddings.comBride and groom smiling with veil www.marycostaweddings.comDapper groom in velvet blue tux www.marycostaweddings.com Stylish bride and groom www.marycostaweddings.com Bride laughing www.marycostaweddings.com Quirky wedding portrait www.marycostaweddings.com Bride and groom laughing in DTLA www.marycostaweddings.com Bridal portrait with makeup by James Charles www.marycostaweddings.com Bride and groom with graffiti backdrop www.marycostaweddings.com Bride and groom kissing with urban sunset backdrop www.marycostaweddings.com

I love Rolling Greens’ reception space! I shot these details pre-ceremony while the sun was still out and the natural light was perfect. Having access to a completely styled and well-lit reception space before the guests start arriving is truly the best – it makes my job 1,000 times easier and also makes for much better photos!
