Susie Loucks, Collision, Bird Photography, Animal Photography, Altered Space Gallery

Susie Loucks photographs feature coastal birds frozen in flight, juxtaposing extreme movements against still backgrounds and emphasizing the anatomy and mechanics of a bird in mid-flight.

Focusing on wild animals in motion can be a challenge, compelling Loucks to spend innumerable hours photographing her untamed subjects. However, her determination to capture these birds in action yields high quality images, revealing the variety of forms they display as they live their lives in the air.

The time Loucks spends photographing our natural world has allowed her to expand her knowledge, awareness and respect for the world we live in.

Top 5 Non-Traditional Nuptial Venues in SoCal
Thursday, January 31, 2013

We would like to introduce to a very special guest blogger this week, Akiko Senda. Akiko works as an event creator for Soiree Events LLC, an event planning company based out of Tucson, AZ that is now expanding to the Los Angeles area. She has compiled a list of her top 5 favorite non-traditional wedding venues in the Southern California area for those of you who are amidst of wedding planning. We hope you love these venues as much as we do!

It’s no doubt that in recent years there has been a shift in wedding styles. Gone are the days that brides have to book their special day at some fancy hotel and serve rubbery chicken to their guests. And although these types of weddings are still planned, there is much hope for those of us looking for non-traditional nuptials and amazingly cool venues to book a rockin’ wedding. So-Cal is no stranger to some of the most hip, urban spaces. Here are my current top five…

1. The Ace Hotel – Palm Springs

This place embodies all that is hip & cool right now. Set in the desert, this awesome renovated mid-century hotel makes the perfect setting for an out-of-the-norm wedding complete with pools, yurts, taco trucks & record players.

If that’s not enough to get you to the desert, check out this 3 day wedding via 100layercake put on by some of the best vendors Los Angeles has to offer… that’s what I call a party.

2. Marvimon House/Smog Shoppe – Los Angeles

I’ve been obsessed with these two places for quite some time now. Currently one of the hot spots to get married in L.A., both the Marvimon house and the Smog Shoppe offer urban style venues for those searching for non-traditional style. I personally love the combo of succulents, brick wall and quirky décor they offer. The best part (or maybe worst for some people) is you can bring in all your own vendors to cater, DJ, do floral, etc. The possibilities are endless.

3. Cooper Design Space – Downtown Los Los Angeles

Those involved in the L.A. fashion and retail world know The Cooper Building well as it is home to many important fashion showrooms and buying offices. Set in the heart of the Los Angeles Fashion District, the Cooper building offers large industrial like spaces with towering ceilings and lofty windows…making it the perfect canvas for a chic and  creative wedding.

4. The Huron Substation 

This historic building boasts exposed tall brick walls, arched windows, & wooden ceiling beams perfect for smaller weddings up to 100 people. The garden courtyard is ideal for hosting a quaint ceremony from where you can easily move your group to the main room for an intimate party. Historical buildings always add a little more character to any wedding!

5.  Korakia Pensione 

If  the words Bohemian, Mediterranean, Morrocan describe your wedding style, the Korakia retreat is the perfect venue for you. This desert oasis offers rooms for your guests in addition to an intimate outdoor space to host a killer party. Think lanterns, Moroccan beds, and tons of relaxation.

photos: korakia.comweddingchicks.com

Whatever venue you may choose, make sure to make it special and a true representation of who you are. Make your own things, source thrift and vintage stores for recycled treasures and go as creative as you can be!
