A Modern, Bohemian and Romantic Wedding at The Fig House in Los Angeles, California
For their wedding, Hayley and Eric Levy wanted to "combine the laid-back, boho ambience of California with the sophisticated, mid-century modern and art deco ambience of New York City—the two locations that are most significant in our lives," they say. "Most importantly, we wanted an overtone that felt like us as a couple: playful, light, joyous and filled with love. They sent out colorful invitation suites with a modern design, stained glass details and coral accents—all of which also showed up in other aspects of the wedding. Hayley and Eric also decorated with jewel tones, earthy textures and romantic flowers. The Jewish ceremony took place in the garden. Vintage rugs lined the aisle, guests sat on modern gold chairs and the couple stood underneath a chuppah with coral blooms. Afterward, guests attended an outdoor cocktail hour filled with yummy bites (such as brioche grilled cheese with tomato bisque shooters and fried chicken in waffle wafer cones) and mid-century lounge furniture with bohemian accessories. Then they made their way to the reception. "The first thing guests saw was the jaw-dropping escort display," Hayley says. "My mom is an incredibly talented ceramist and she handmade 200 bowls for guests to take home. Each bowl was calligraphed with the guests' names and table numbers. The calligraphy was done in ink that could be removed later." The dining tables had coral chairs and dainty flower arrangements in ceramic vases. A floating flower display dangled over the head table. "Ultimately, it really was in the details and individual nods to us as a couple that made the decor so perfect," Hayley says. "The tray for the yarmulkes, the rose quartz stones and name tags on the front row of ceremony chairs, the hand dip-dyed napkins, the overlapping rugs down the aisle—these are just some examples of the design elements that came together for a truly interesting and beautiful wedding."
