Write up from Visuals by Arpit: 

This OUE Skyspace wedding editorial came about from our desire to showcase a modern and elegant metropolitan affair. To complement the intricate architecture of Los Angeles as well as the natural beauty surrounding the city, our team set out to pull together details designed to play off each other in order to successfully create a sleek and sexy wedding experience. The first look at the Walt Disney Concert Hall set the mood for the couple with the city streets and the sleek architecture. The pockets and sweeping train on the Galia Lahav bridal gown provided the mix of modern elegance and luxe femininity, while the neatly tailored suit designed by Michael Kors was its perfect complement. The beauty team drew inspiration straight from the red carpet, balancing classic and trendy all in one swoop. Handcrafted jewelry and the gold hairpiece added the perfect touch of romance, while the brilliant diamond enhanced the details. (Continued below)

For the ceremony and reception, we were drawn to the two-story observation deck that crowns Downtown LA’s U.S. Bank Tower. Ensconced in the embrace of the Santa Monica and San Gabriel mountain ranges as well as the landmark-rich Los Angeles basin which stretches out to the Pacific Ocean, OUE Skyspace LA’s 1,000-foot vantage point teams “I do” with a view. As urban and industrial spaces are becoming an increasing preference for weddings, Skyspace provided the ideal location for our shoot. Setting the perfect tone as a sneak peek for the experience at hand were the gorgeous acrylic and gold-accented invitations. To follow that through, we pulled in shades of coral, apricot and rose gold, and embellished the space with acrylics, glassware, custom marbling, and geometric shapes to echo an art deco aesthetic, characteristic of LA’s design pedigree. 

The sweeping train of the Galia Lahav bridal gown played into the sweeping landscapes observed from the 69th story balcony, the site for the ceremony. The train also created a gravity-less illusion as the bride seemingly floated down the aisle. The groom’s angular Michael Kors suit made for its perfect complement. The bride’s handcrafted jewelry and gold hairpiece accentuated her ensemble with the stylish sensibilities of a silver screen setting. As day turned to night and the sun set over the “city of stars” – an affectionate term coined by Oscar-winning romance La La Land – the bride’s stunning evening gown and blue sapphire jewelry captured the evening’s cinematic composition as the couple danced above the city lights.
