Intimate Greenery Wedding at Inn of the Seventh Ray | Topanga, California // Lo + Matt

Lo and Matt’s love story is seriously one of the sweetest I’ve ever heard – and I hear a lot of love stories! I joked with them that they should sell movie rights! They met when they were only three years old…yeah, already so sweet. They were neighbors and schoolmates and childhood sweethearts! They even had a “wedding” when they were 7 years old where Lo wore her mom’s wedding dress! They lived across the street from each and they were each other’s’ first kiss! After Lo moved away a few years later, they lost touch, and Matt went into the Marines. Even though they were apart and seemingly not in each other’s lives anymore, Lo still thought about him and one day she finally found him online and messaged him – he lived a whole state away at that point! She reached out to him and they started talking every day. After a few weeks, Lo made the drive from California to Arizona to see him after 15 years! They never stopped loving each other through all that time apart, eventually stayed in California together, and now they’re married! I’m crying…

They love the outdoors and hiking, so Matt decided to propose on a hike in Simi Valley at the top of the mountain. Once they got to the top at sunset, Matt asked a fellow hiker to take their photo and whispered to him “I’m about to propose to her” – gahhhh! Obviously Lo said yes! They had their intimate wedding at the Inn of the Seventh Ray in Topanga, CA. Lo wore her Galina Signature gown so beautifully, with a lovely flowy train we had a lot of fun with, and it showed off all her gorgeous tattoos! All the guys wore Vans and Lo changed into some cute bridal Converse after the ceremony – always go for comfort, haha! The Inn of the Seventh Ray is already so gorgeous on its own, with lush greenery, and an intimate forest fairytale vibe, and Lo and Matt’s decor complimented it beautifully. They went with a botanical look with greenery and succulents, and for colors they had greens, tans, and pops of maroon and magenta and it was all so pretty! Lo even made all the centerpieces herself!

Fun fact: Lo and I actually connected through a hiking group on Facebook called Girls Who Hike, and they ended up hiring me because I also hike! How awesome is that? Just showing off their outdoorsy-ness more, they went on their mini-moon to Mammoth – hell yeah! Their Engagement Session at Carbon Canyon Regional Park in Orange County will be on the blog soon!
