The Majestic Downtown Los Angeles Wedding by Andrea Schmitt
Carrie ann and Franceso held their wedding at the unique and historic The Majestic Downtown in Los Angeles. I always said I could listen to a room full of Italians all night. I love the language and the accents, the way they passionately talk with their hands, the hearty laughs and non stop kisses on grandparents, babies, friends and loves. Francesco’s family is Italian so between the family, the food and the fun, this was a fantastic celebration!
This glamorous wedding took place at the historic Majestic Halls in downtown LA. The Majestic Halls is the old stock exchange building from the 20’s that has been converted to an events venue with a cool vintage vibe.The historic richness of the building combined with the classic décor makes it truly majestic. The lavish 32-foot high-coffered ceilings are adorned with hand-painted frescoes and bronze ornamentation that turn this architectural masterpiece into an elegant and luxurious venue.
But let me start with the amazing bride, Carrie Ann. Carrie Ann could have walked off a Society Page with the style she put together. The dress by and the insane shoes sent me over the top! Wondering where the massive foot came from? She got ready at the Standard Hotel in downtown , so we had a great city backdrop for the getting ready photos. We also chose to take some fun portraits at one of my favorite downtown spots, the Disney Concert Hall. The old bank vault at Majestic Halls, is another untraditional backdrop for photos which is so unique.
And then came the flash mob. Yes, I said flash mob. At a wedding. Carrie Ann planned it as a surprise and it was a success! Francesco was so surprised he asked her: “why are the waiters starting to dance like that?” Then some of their guests whom were in on her secret, joined in and it was a hit! Whoop to a bride who likes to mix things up a bit! Three locations, Dancing, a flash mob, specialty cocktails, amazing food, a photobooth. Whew! This wedding had it all.
