The Edgy Chic Los Angeles Wedding of a Fashion Stylist

After high school sweethearts Jordan Marx and Marc Bevinetto got engaged in Tulum in 2019, they began planning an epic wedding, only to have to call it off when the world shut down in March 2020. But they were determined to get married and opted for a more intimate, but just as elegant, celebration with 55 loved ones. There was a bit of a time crunch. “We had three months to bring everything to life after our original wedding was cancelled,” Jordan shares. They enlisted Summer Newman Events to help organize the event. “My mom was very involved,” adds Jordan. “She worked tirelessly with Summer to plan every detail of the wedding.”

The vision? “We wanted the day to feel like a fairy tale, but our personality was reflected in the simplicity and elegance of the design,” says Jordan. The Redbird restaurant in downtown Los Angeles created the perfect setting: it was both intimate and charming. “A hidden gem,” says Jordan.

So, after all, they got their ‘happily ever after’ on October 17, 2021. Read on for all the chic details — chic with a twist — as planned by Summer Newman Events and photographed by Jeremy Chou.

Jordan had a facial three days before the wedding to prepare her skin for a timeless Jackie Kennedy-inspired makeup look. She “she wanted to look fresh and glowing; less is more,” she says. “I thought a slippery chignon was just the thing to bring the whole look together.” She added a splash of Comme des Garcons Wonderwood for a finishing touch.

A fashion stylist by day, Jordan spent the morning with her mother, who was of course dressed in a T-style, complete with a Rick Owens skirt and a Dolce & Gabbana corset with Valentino boots.

“The moment I tried it on, I was like, ‘This is it,'” Jordan recalls of her Vera Wang gown from the designer’s Fall 2020 bridal collection. Nicknamed Martha, the gown is a blend of soft white crepe with a subtle cowl neckline, strappy cowl back, and gothic “I Do” embroidered along the side hem. She styled it with a veil by the same designer, embroidered with “love,” Stuart Weitzman shoes, and JustDesi earrings.

For his part, Marc spent the morning trying to keep busy, “to help with the nerves,” he says. When it finally came time to get dressed, he donned a classic black tuxedo and added a corsage in honor of his brother, who had passed away two months earlier.

“We wanted a romantic vintage theme, with lots of white flowers and candles,” Jordan says of the ceremony’s inspiration. Florist Nancy Kaye of Mark’s Garden delivered, creating a garden paradise anchored by a lush chuppah of white flowers and greenery. Black infinity chairs added a touch to the design that was in keeping with Jordan’s couture style.

Violinist Alan Price performed as guests arrived and took their seats, then picked up Callum Scott’s “You Are the Reason” as Marc entered. In typical Jewish custom, Jordan entered with both of his parents, singing a space-appropriate song: Bruce Springsteen’s Secret Garden. “We wait until the ceremony to see each other,” shares the bride. “We wanted to keep it traditional, and I’m very happy we did.” Walking down the aisle and seeing her husband-to-be for the first time was one of her fondest memories of her day.

Rabbi Jeff Marx officiated at the Jewish ceremony, which featured traditional rites such as glass breaking. The couple wrote their own vows, but chose not to share them during the ceremony. “We wanted that moment to be intimate, so we read our vows in private,” they share.

An ultra-romantic kiss—and a splash!—sealed the deal, then the newlyweds bowed out to Duke Dumont’s “I Got U.”

The signing of the Ketubah was another way the couple sealed their marriage within the Jewish tradition.

An extra-long king table spanned the reception space under a canopy of trees and string lights, creating an intimate dining setting. Silver-rimmed glass chargers were topped with vintage white china for a modern-classic look, and black chairs were a finishing touch to the space.

The couple’s venue, Redbird, is first and foremost a restaurant, so the menu is sure to be excellent. They selected a few of their favorite dishes including shishito peppers with bottarga and crispy quinoa, grilled smoked tofu with vegan kimchi, steak, fish, and all mouth-watering Parker rolls.

Jordan joined his father on the dance floor as he performed Frank Sinatra’s “The Way You Look Tonight.” Marc and his mother chose “I’ll Stand by You” by The Pretenders.

The newlyweds cut a three-layer white cake with chocolate buttercream from the classic Hansen’s Cakes, garnished with three-dimensional pink flowers, then danced and mingled with their nearest and dearest. It was a night they will never forget. “Be present,” the bride and groom advise other couples, “and enjoy every minute.”
