The Fig House is one of my absolute favorite venues in Los Angeles, and Dailyn & Todd’s February wedding was one of my favorite weddings of 2016. Today, on their one-year anniversary, I’m excited to share a few of the many highlights of their awesome wedding day!

Pre-ceremony, Todd read up on some old-timey marriage wisdom in the man cave at The Fig House. “Dont’s For Husbands” is a (now) tongue in cheek advice book, originally published in 1913. A sample bit of advice: “Don’t insist in wearing that very disreputable coat when some rather “starchy” people are coming to tea. If your wearing it makes your wife feel uncomfortable, it won’t do any harm to change it, even if you do think it’s a bore.” 

I mean, the book isn’t wrong, but it’s still funny.

After a private First Look, Dailyn & Todd took family photos with their adorable fur babies, Vinnie & Jojo!

Vinnie & Jojo were not just honored guests, but they were also very important members of the Wedding Party – in fact, they were the ONLY members of the wedding party. Vinnie was a dapper Best Man.

And Jojo was an attentive (if cuddle-seeking) Maid of Honor.

Dailyn & Todd’s intimate ceremony was equal parts heartfelt and hilarious, as witnessed by this photo.

It was also sweet and inclusive, as witnessed by the Ring Warming by their beloved guests.

Dailyn & Todd are huge foodies – HUGE – and Room Forty Catering was a match made in heaven for them! During cocktail hour, guests were treated to a fromager and charcuterie station, as well as delicious cocktails.

The bride is a successful writer, so it seemed more than fitting to use a vintage typewriter as a ‘guest book’ of sorts. Guests were encouraged to leave words of wisdom for Dailyn & Todd.

Speaking of personal touches, Todd, a graphic designer, created their custom invitation suite. So awesome!

If you look closely, you can see a tiny Vinnie and a teeny tiny Jojo. Can you spot them above?

Another personal touch came in the form of Dailyn & Todd’s table names and escort cards. As an homage to Todd’s background as a fine artist, and the couple’s shared love of the Masters, they identified their tables with framed works of art. The catch? The escort cards had the Artists name, not the work of art. It was a fun test of Art History for everyone. (And as a backup, the Moxie Bright Team was on hand to help out!)

While we are on the subject of Fine Art, does this photo remind you of someone? Hint: This is not a bouquet.

A few details from the reception. I love the richness of the La Tavola linen with all the gold accents and wildflowers.

Guests were treated to an absolutely delicious dinner, served with style by the pros at Room Forty.

In lieu of a traditional wedding cake, mini passed deserts (also by Room Forty Catering) kept the dance floor full and the awesome party energy flowing!

As an additional treat, everyone enjoyed decadent macarons by Bottega Louie.

Dailyn & Todd, I cannot believe it has been a whole year since this fabulous day! Thank you for trusting me on your wedding planning journey (and for indulging me when I said, “I think you will really like this venue…”). I look back on your day with such love and fondness. I hope you are celebrating your anniversary in style! Big smooches to Vinny & Jojo too!
