Colorful DIY Jewish Wedding at Grace E. Simons Lodge – Emily + Jeremy

I knew from Jeremy and Emily’s engagement session that their wedding was going to be fun. They are ridiculously cute together, and their wedding vows were so perfectly parallel and hilarious that it was the first time I witnessed vows getting an ovation from all the guests! Emily and Jeremy pulled off a personalized DIY wedding with colorful Mexican decor and a beautiful Jewish ceremony at Grace E. Simons Lodge in Elysian Park. The food truck tacos, eclectic succulent plants, emotional speeches, pie buffet, and amazing dance party playlist all combined into a perfect celebration!

See the full gallery or order prints here. Congratulations, Emily and Jeremy!
