wedding gathering at the ace hotel dtla theatre with the flashdance

A little over 6 years ago, when we were fairly n00b’y in the wedding world, we heard rumors and whisperings of a magical being called the Flashdance [AKA Michael] and the notorious parties he spun for and produced around the world. Really.

Then, we went to Vegas and experienced one of his said parties, and got what it was all about.

Fastforward for a sec, and we’ve now been to 6 of his 7 annual world-altering parties that are called Lazers and Blazers. And our friend Nate might have photographed all of them here. But prepare yourself. Those photos aren’t for the faint of heart.


We really love Michael. He’s become a dear friend. A mentor. A co-stage-sharer at Way Up North in Rome earlier this year. A serial-business-beginning cohort. He’s the good kind. The really good kind.

This past winter, right before Field Trip began, when all of the very best people and wedding photographer colleagues in the galaxy all descended upon Los Angeles from their various corners of the globe, Michael brought us all together at the Ace Hotel DTLA. And not just generically at the Ace, but on the stage of the Theatre at the Ace, for dinner.

There were florals. Friendly faces. A string quartet.

There was a magician doing card tricks. Divine dishes and drinks. It was bliss.

I kept thinking how rad it would be to have a wedding on that stage … and apparently you can. Oh, and you can also hire Michael to spin at your wedding, and you should.

We had to end the night fairly early just to be in sane shape for Field Trip and the days that followed, but this is not a night we’ll forget. We feel awfully lucky to get to collab and cohort with the likes of Michael in a city like Los Angeles. So here’s a little #lovesong for our people + place. xo
