{real wedding} lindsay + kier's la rooftop wedding

After seeing Lindsay + Kier's wedding I was convinced that more couples should have a rooftop wedding and with the city skyline as a backdrop makes it more memorable.  Lindsay was kind enough to share a bit about her day and offers some great advice to brides-to-be.  "Kier and I fell in love with the Oviatt, and the very cool backdrop of downtown Los Angeles city lights.  Wanting to keep the wedding rather small and intimate, this venue was perfect. Like most brides, I wanted everything to be DIY. I felt like I could make pretty much everything I saw, plus I could make it my way, and it was more meaningful.  I kept a scrapbook of tears of anything that inspired me.  I looked through tons of DIY blogs."
"Because the venue was built in the 1920s, it was an easy decision to go with an art deco theme. I designed and made the invitations, the menu cards, the ceremony programs, table numbers, escort cards, signage and garter.  My sister made all the boutonnieres, bridesmaid's hair pieces, my hair piece, and together with our friend Jeff, made the cute cake toppers.  Even though I had a pretty long engagement of 1 1/2 years, I was still up every night until 2 am the week of the wedding putting together everything.  My only regret was not hiring a wedding coordinator.  Everything pulled together fine and worked out, but having one would have meant a lot less stress the week and day of the wedding.  Also, there was no one in my corner when it came to dealing with the caterer/venue owner, who was not the easiest to work with.  My advice - hire a coordinator!"
