So, my dad tied the knot at The SmogShoppe in LA, and let me tell you, it was one for the books! Picture this – a rad mix of modern vibes and rustic charm, making the venue an Insta-worthy dream for your wedding.
I got to play superhero, walking Dad down the aisle. Then, we busted out some moves in our father-daughter dance, and my brother and I gave speeches that had everyone feeling all the feels. But the tearjerker? Dad and Grandma owning the dance floor during their mother-son dance (to Etta James’ “At Last” – pure EMOTION!
Now, let’s talk style. The dress code? All black everything. And guess what? The bride slayed the late-night reception changing into a black stunner. I love when brides have a dress change for reception!
Taco Maco brought the flavor with Mexican-Middle Eastern fusion tacos and elote cups! And for dessert? The infamous LA Dodger churro cart rolled in with a VW Bug. Churro sundaes for everyone! Click here for their IG!
Oh, and there was ANOTHER VW bus turned into a photobooth? Genius move from the Shutter Bus Co. We snapped pics all night in that thing! Having the ability to put a whole bus/photobooth inside the reception area is just another reason why SmogShoppe in LA is amazing for a wedding venue!
But wait, there’s more! My Dad and step-mom went full-on Belieber and got matching tattoos with lyrics to their special song, see if you can guess it below. And to cap off the night? A solo dance to the very song they got inked to. How’s that for romance?!
So, if you’re up for a wedding that’s part tearjerker, part fiesta, check out The SmogShoppe in LA. It’s the place for weddings where memories are made, and love gets a little bit crazy!
