Travel Theme Wedding At The Smog Shoppe

Jenn and Victor are known for their love of wanderlust. So it seemed only natural that their wedding theme would be “around the world”. They carefully displayed art and objects collected  from various countries and used a map for their seating chart. Be sure to take note of the map it is quite a piece of art itself. They also incorporated Jenn’s Chinese heritage and Vic’s Mexican heritage throughout their cocktail hour, making it truly personal.

Enjoy more of this travel theme wedding at The Smog Shoppe photographed by Sweet Monday Photography in the full gallery.

Each guests was given a paper flower before they sat down for the wedding ceremony. After Jenn and Victor became husband and wife guests were asked to toss the flowers. Such a fun and idea.

For their reception, they had amazing BBQ to pay homage to Victor’s Texas roots as well as their mutual love of the BBQ. We love how they infused both of their heritages into their wedding favors. Saying thank you in both their languages on the favor tags is super cute.

    Can someone please tell Rhiannon at Hey Gorgeous Events that she didn’t invent balloons, striped straws and big letters for weddings? Please stop with the “copying” business. No one copied you. Let others be happy with their day.
