Ryan and Jett's wedding was mid-century modern done oh-so-right. Bride Jett sums it up: "We wanted to throw the most epic party of our lives that celebrated our love for each other. What better way to do that than to have amazing cocktails and dance the night away in a gorgeous setting? " She's right, there isn’t a better way, and these photos by Steve Cowell prove it. From taco carts to a killer venue like the The Sinatra House, to literally taking the plunge…these two knew just how to say "I do."

So cute!

Ryan’s collection of 1950s and '60s radios made fabulous centerpieces and added to the wedding's overall décor. He also digitally illustrated all of the radios (each took over eight hours!), to use as assignment cards for guests in finding their seats.

The night ended with — you guessed it — a jump in the pool, joined by guests and their event designer, Jesi, who just knew it would be an awesome moment.

Advice from the bride: "Trust your vendors. From the best flowers that were in season, to which beer/wine would be the most crowd-pleasing, to which songs would set the tone and get everyone on the dance floor, to which lighting was the best for photos. We had the best, and literally stress-free wedding experience, by doing so and were able to completely enjoy our day."
