A Long Beach Wedding Full Of Quirky Personal Touches

The Loft on Pine in Long Beach, California, is one of our very favorite venues, and we’re pretty sure that Leigh and Matt’s magical wedding is about to reveal why. The space is vast with gorgeous architectural details, ready for couples to bring in their personal styles and create days that are reflective of them. Leigh and Matt worked with Bash Please and Moon Canyon, so it’s safe to say the details and florals were incredibly beautiful.

But aside from the unique design elements, the bride and groom wanted the focus to be on creating a fun, memorable night shared with all their loved ones. The couple opted for a family-style dinner. "We both grew up eating with family and friends this way, so we knew this would be special to incorporate into our celebration," says Leigh. They were thrilled to hear that their friends and family had just as a fantastic time as they did: Everyone agreed that the celebration truly represented them as a couple.
