Photos by Clayton Austin Love Stories
Ronee is a screenwriter and Jeff is a software developer from Los Angeles. Ronee’s love of the big screen infused her vintage wedding with dozens of cool details like: a screen play page rolled into our antique typewriter, framed movie quotes (our favorite ” You look good wearing my future.” – Some Kind of Wonderful) vintage press photos of movie icons like Clark Gable and Vivienne Lee in Gone with the Wind. Access to paper of the trade allowed Ronee to get very creative in using screenplay sheets for confetti, bunting, and even a screenplay aisle runner! We loved Ronee’s passion for unique touches, running the gamett from southern chic, retro, vintage and bohemian. Jeff and his guys are dapper in their caps and suspenders, and Ronee let her country side loose with a denim shrug.
Ronee and Jeff treated guests (all from the West Coast and beyond) to upscale southern fare from Copper Kettle like Smoky Crawfish Fritters, a homemade pie buffet and bourbon tasting bar. Cedarwood designers loved pulling out our collection of vintage mint decor and an array of props like books, cameras, tins, and assorted containers. Ronee and Jeff added a bit of bohemian flair, courtesy of retro chairs and mismatched china, handmade cocktail bitters (lavender, rhubarb, orange and charred cedar-yum) and a ‘speakeasy style’ lounge for guests to enjoy. Probably the most unusual treat was Ronee and Jeff’s ‘mobile movie theatre’ playing ‘Sabrina’ (complete with an impressive, hand-lettered chalkboard marquee by Karen.) There was so much cool going on during Ronee and Jeff’s Cedarwood destination wedding, (including jaunts to Mooncake lake and our retro Airstream) that photographer Clayton Austin had quite a daunting job. Enjoy the celebration though his fun photos!
Loved working with you Ronee and Jeff! Thanks for being so much fun! Thanks to Clayton Austin for sharing images with us.
