# 2 the wedding of bride Lisa & groom Wayne

 

The wedding of Lisa & Wayne first captivated the BRIDAL INSTINCT team when we stumbled across the most beautiful and uber cool LA rooftop image of the pair captured by Andrew Abajian. We knew within seconds that Lisa would captivate and inspire our stylish readers and we simply had to find out more about their amazing day. Lisa & Wayne married on April 22nd, 2016 in the heart of LA. Lisa shone in a Bo & Luca gown and the pair danced the night away in candle light with the ones they love the most. The wedding photography exudes such a natural ambience of love and we're so pleased to have Lisa & Wayne as part of our REAL WEDDING COLLECTION. Enjoy.

YOUR WEDDING STYLE?

 

I didn't want the day to feel like a traditional "wedding." I wanted it to feel like a night with our closest friends and family where we happened to be celebrating Wayne and I.  

I focused on the ambiance and the vibe of the venue and how people would feel being in the space.  If I had to sum up our wedding style in a few words, it would be "indie bohemian effortless chic." 

 

... AND YOUR STYLE IN DETAIL?

 

Wedding Dress designer is Bo and Luca and my dress was purchased from Loho Bride in San Francisco. My headpiece designer is Boho Kitty, Shoes are Vince Camuto, all jewelry is Marchesa, veil was custom.

ANY MOMENTS OF SURPRISE? 

 

My sister's speech at dinner was filled with compliments and was a very sweet moment for me. 

 

WHAT IS YOUR NUMBER 1 WEDDING RULE?

 

Stop being so concerned with the convenience of others. At the end of the day, your wedding day should be about what makes you, the bride and groom happiest, and everything else will fade away. I became consumed with pleasing everyone and making the day easy and fun for everyone else and had to be reminded that I can't please everyone.

HOW ABOUT MUSIC? TELL US YOUR  SOUNDTRACK? 

 

Steppin'-out by Kaskade (the acoustic version) is what we danced to for our first dance. 

 

Any Wedding 'Traditions' that  you just had to keep OR Any Wedding Traditions you  couldn't wait to ignore?

 

Had to do the traditional "father-daughter" and "mother-son" dances, we are just so close with our parents, it was a special moment. Could not wait to ignore the garter toss, no thank you! 

 

A moment to relive? 

 

The dancing! It seemed to go by so incredibly fast, I wish I could slow that section of the night down.

What would be your top tip for brides to be? 

 

Spend as much time getting ready with your bridesmaids as possible. I felt like I could've spent another 8 hours getting ready and drinking champs with them, it was so fun!

 

AND FINALLY... HOW IS MARRIED LIFE? 

 

Amazing! It is so special to be able to start our lives as husband and wife.
