A Magical Wedding Bursting With Color

If you’re a couple looking for a true classic Hollywood wedding venue, look no further than the incredible Houdini Estate. This famous property is the perfect space for couples looking to celebrate their love in a quirky (rumored to be haunted) venue. The history legacy of Houdini speaks for itself and the estate is wonderfully preserved. Therefore, when my clients, Kate + Zach, chose this for their colorful, magical wedding, I was so on board!

The Magic Of Color

One great aspect of the Houdini Estate is its amazing balance of maximalist + neutral vibes. Surrounded by impeccable architectural moments and statues every corner, there is also lush greenery covering almost every square inch. It’s honestly a photographers dream because you can create so many different looks! And so, Kate + Zach knew the potential and used bold colors in every element of their design. For example, Kate’s bright bridal bouquet, Zach’s cabernet suit, and the jewel toned linens + lounge space all felt like a natural extension of the Houdini Estate. Our florist, Inessa Nichols, always knocks it out of the park (like this disco inspired wedding!)

Congrats Kate + Zach + thanks for letting me explore this famed Hollywood venue! For even more unique venues around Los Angeles, be sure to check out this blog post. If you’re ready to start planning your own magical wedding, contact me on my homepage + let’s chat!
