Darren + Charlene: Marchin' & Loftin' In LA
No one could've prepared me for what happened Saturday, January 21st, 2017. Yes, the Los Angeles Women's March happened that day, but when your couple decides to join in by doing their first look at ground zero (because they are Gospel-centered activists), then march halfway to their wedding venue, you know it's going to be epic!
From bridal party prep beginning at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Downtown LA to the March that included a Uber ride to the posh Charleston Haus loft for the ceremony and festivities, Darren and Charlene embody adventure! And because it's these two, of course the day included the perfect brunch menu with a donut bar, gourmet omelettes, buttermilk chicken and waffles, and mimosas that were literally to die for!! Hats off to Chef Coop of Krafted Culture for providing impeccable food and service!
Guys, being rescued by the Uber driver was quite historic and we literally laughed, cried, ate, gamed, and danced the day away! Cheers to Darren and Charlene for celebrating 1 year of marriage and renewing your vows in such God-glorifying, classy, and millennial fashion. Out of all of the weddings I've documented, this one was the most unconventional and I adored EVERYTHING about it!
They came, they conquered, and added a whole lot of glitz and glam to LA that day!
Turn up your speakers, press play, and relive their special day!
