The unique flair of venue of the Smog Shoppe and the couple’s fun touches brought together a party for Molly & Jason’s urban jungle wedding.
About the wedding: Molly & Jason’s intimate urban jungle wedding is the epitome of laid-back Los Angeles style. The wedding was held in a once 1980s smog-check center, SmogShoppe, which is now a 100% solar-powered, private 6,500 square foot indoor/outdoor haven for desert plants, vertical gardens and chic vintage furnishings. All of the wedding decor was DIY and everything at the wedding was personalized to showcase the fun and funky personalities of the bride and groom. Molly’s brother, a graphic designer, drew the custom “Jolly” wedding logo used throughout and her mom hand-painted all of the signs used at the venue. Her dad made the eight chocolate wedding cakes (the same cake he has made Molly every year for her birthday). Even the couples’ wedding rings were handmade by the bride and groom themselves!
From the bride: Like many couples, my husband Jason and I wanted our wedding not only to be a day to celebrate us legally binding ourselves together, but to reflect the things we love so much; namely, delicious food, games, dancing, and our love of Los Angeles. Jason and I are both originally from the Midwest (South Dakota for him, Kansas for me) but met in LA, and fell in love in large part due to our shared passion for the city. So our wedding incorporated all of the things we love about the city.
