Katie has to yet another one of our sweetest brides. She actually is a small business owner with her Mom, whose business is a neighbor to our Long Beach,CA bridal store location called The Better Half Boutique. Katie married Mark on March 25, 2017 in Long Beach at a new venue called The Loft on Pine, and by the way…it is an amazing wedding venue and we were lucky enough to have Katie share all of the photos from the wedding taken by . Let’s just say they are amazing! There were so many it was hard to chose, but here are some of our favorites from their wedding at The Loft on Pine St.


Katie and Mark started their wedding day with a first look photo shoot. The look on Mark’s face says it all. Katie came in to our Long Beach location in June of last year. Of course we welcomed her with open arms, being a fellow small business and all. She brought her most important women with her to find the perfect dress. Katie chose a natural waist ballgown by Allure in champagne with a a two toned champagne and ivory organza ruffle skirt, lace bodice with a sweet heart neckline and the most amazing bling accent around the waist. Katie is our first bride to be featured in this dress.


Katie had large bridal party filled with all her most important ladies. A total of 9 girls and as you can see they all play an important role in her life. We are in love with this chalkboard idea to know who is who, and who doesn’t love a cute silky robe.Can you say bridal party SQUAD GOALS!!!!!

The great thing about this venue is that it offered a a very urban look for their wedding photos, which makes it so unique. Very straight and to the point without having to add anything extra. Sometimes less is more.    

Ok,… sooooooo look at the inside of the venue….How amazing is this ceiling!!!!

It’s the little details that help to make your big day better. Katie got custom made signs on Etsy  which helps with the rustic vibe of the day. How cute is this shelving with a variety of pictures of Katie and Mark too?!


This cute idea for your seating chart is super unique and can actually be rented from Katie’s shop The Better Half Boutique . The little keys are such a great added accent.

Although all of their loved ones were present to witness them exchange vows, they did have those who were there in spirit as well.

I think Dad is trying to hold back tears.

He put a ring on it!!!
