Designer Disney: A Beautiful Disney-Meets-Glam Wedding Day At The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel
Old Hollywood and Disney were the seeds of inspiration for Katie Lynch and Matt Feige’s summer wedding at The Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood. Working with Los Angeles’ Natalie Sofer Events, the couple infused the hotel’s glam aura with a “boho-jungalow” vibe that evoked Disneyland’s Adventureland, without being over the top. “We wanted our guests to feel like they were at a warm, open, super-fun party,” says Katie, who admits she is obsessed with bright colors and tropical greens. “We wanted to introduce the [Disney] concept without it feeling like a Disney wedding and incorporate our style.” They kept the Mickey moments restrained and subtle through small touches, such as the music: Their first dance was to the Sherman Brothers’ classic “On the Front Porch,” from the Disney film Summer Magic, and they cut the cake to The Little Mermaid’s “Kiss the Girl.” To fulfill Katie’s love for everything bright and tropical, Seed Floral infused the event’s design with leafy greens and bright pink florals.
