Kate Arias and Alex West married in a modern, artistic celebration that fused each of their styles and reflected their unique qualities. Kate had the idea to marry at Millwick, a venue with an industrial ambiance that reminded her of her Pittsburgh roots, but it also appealed to Alex’s love of California and the qualities of his hometown, Los Angeles. The wedding colors drew on the natural neutrals of Los Angeles and the colors of a desert sunset. Warm, dusty colors, such as rust and red-orange, were carried throughout the florals and the decorations, and there were copper details as well. The couple purchased many of their wedding-related items from independent businesses and designers. Kate’s custom headband, which matched her wedding ring, was one of those items. Kate and Alex have a clementine tree in their backyard, which blooms in January, so they used dried oranges as place cards, which sat on top of the menus. Instead of a wedding cake, they opted for a Pittsburgh tradition of a cookie table, which featured a variety of cookies . Alex’s brother officiated at the ceremony, and guests remarked how “Alex and Kate” the day was.
