INSPIRATION: Gavin and Devon’s exquisite silver and white wedding was inspired by the open space and soaring ceilings at their wedding venue, downtown Los Angeles’ historic Vibiana. The former cathedral’s main hall was the scene of the reception, hosting guests beneath elegant, curved archways and a light-projected lace pattern, mimicking the bride’s silver custom gown designed by Samantha Elizabeth, owner of Andrea’s for the Bride.

TRADITIONAL TOUCHES: The couple’s traditional Jewish ceremony was full of heirlooms and gifts. Gavin’s family shared special items that included a bible, which Gavin’s mother carried down the aisle on her wedding day, a Kiddish cup from family friends, toasting glasses from the bride’s brother and sister-in-law, her paternal grandfather’s tall it and Devon’s cufflinks, from Gavin’s late maternal grandfather. Items from his father, his kipper from his late grandfather, a challah knife from his aunt and uncle, and his late maternal grandfather’s necklace.



BIRDS OF LIGHT: A hummingbird design was carried throughout the wedding, symbolizing the “lightness of heart and joy of life.” Featured on invitations, table and escort crds, napkins, mirrors, and dance floor, the symbol beautifully tied together the personalities and message of the newlyweds.

WHITE NIGHTS: Gavin held a white glamelia bouquet centered around a gleaming rhinestone broach. White floral accents were highlighted in the ceremony in the chuppah design as well as in the reception tablescapes. Each of the variously shaped table featured a unique centerpiece of calla lilies and sleek metallic objects, bringing contrast to the design.

GOOD EATS: The elegant atmosphere was highlighted with a family-style main course, bakery-style dessert displays and a tiered wedding cake created entirely of silver-dipped Oreos.
