Molly & Steffan’s quirky, creative, and historic union was so much more than I could have hoped for. These hilarious humans love each other only very slightly more than they love tacos and pizza and cocktails and their badass community. The Paramour Estate, a colossally fantastic historic old-Hollywood mansion, is like a safari (full of exotic taxidermies) and a quirky history adventure in one. We were completely dazzled by the unique and colorful bouquets and floral design of bougainvillea and tropical leaves (Steffan is a plant dad in a big way and was all about this), and the all-girl live Mariachi band was a treat to arrive to for guests. Oh, did we mention there was a girl on the guys’ side, and a guy on the girls’ side, and both of them carried bouquets, so we dug how gender nonconforming the wedding party was.
The quirky hand-drawn table numbers were customized by a family member to represent their favorite places, and the table runners and seating chart backdrop were hand dyed to reflect Steffan’s background in African studies. and both upon arriving and looming over the dance floor were some excellent custom neon signs. And are you as obsessed with the incredible foggy view of the LA skyline for their first look as we were? With all their unique touches, we could not have had a bigger blast celebrating this amazing wedding. Still kinda crying over those hilarious and feelsy vows because Molly is a hella wordsmith, the pizza glass to break (talk about modernizing a jewish tradition), their making of a cocktail to seal the ceremony (lighting candle is old news!), and especially that nonstop ferocious dance floor with a break for both tacos and donuts mid-party. I love them and you will, too.
