You may be newly engaged and wondering what on earth a safe wedding could look like in the months to come. We have good news for you: the pressure is gone! Because planners and designers like LB Event Planning do the work for you. Use their time outside of the busy seasons, big weddings, and constant to-do lists to remodel the wedding of our time instead. Today the dreamiest micro-wedding takes us to Santa Monica to get inspiration for the wedding at the Proper Hotel, based on the already existing impressive furnishings and architecture.
Our vision was taking shape around the remarkable new hotel The Proper Santa Monica. We knew the setting would be ideal for a couple looking for a stunning venue that is accessible and close by. Overall, we found inspiration in difficult times as we considered how the wedding could go safely. The familiar elements – photography, flowers, rental – will be there, but the human connection became the focus of this shoot. We look forward to brides and grooms who want to be innovative and take care of the details.
An A-Team of vendors has come together (figuratively) to play, create, and create micro-wedding charms. Hannah Costello was typed to get all the details. Let’s take a look at this!
Girl meets Bongga hit the bride with gentle beach waves and a metallic bang in her eyes. She wore two dresses from Billy’s boutique that hinted at a modern, 80s twist!
Wedding ceremony in the right hotel
A micro-wedding in a hotel has great potential, but you are already one step ahead by choosing a venue with stunning decor!
Texture was key to any additional design element, so LB Event Planning brought a dimension to the background of the ceremony with three panels wrapped in thread and adorned with floral decorations from Best Day Ever Floral Design.
The bride and bride portraits took full advantage of the hotel’s design!
The perfect lounge is already there.

Even the drinks are stylish!
The reception table was a recipe of dreamy table top + bed linen from Greystone Table, Found Rentals and La Tavola Fine Linens.
Cheerful small menus from Copper Willow rounded off the ambience!
And best of all, hosting your micro-wedding in a hotel? It’s just a short elevator ride to get to your wedding night! And of course the pretty decor.
