Historic Houdini Estate Wedding in Los Angeles

What on Earth could be more glamorous than a wedding at the fabulous Harry Houdini estate in Los Angeles? Steeped in history, this magical estate served as a backdrop to Meg and Brett's vintage-inspired wedding. The cascading waterfall, creek and lush garden was an extraordinary setting to exchange nuptials.

Built in the Edwardian tradition in the early 1900s, the Houdini Estate still has caves, hidden tunnels, terraced gardens, and a deep-water tank where Harry Houdini reportedly practiced his underwater escapes. The secluded property was the perfect retreat for America’s foremost Magician. Houdini used the estate’s pool to practice his amazing feats of escape and illusion before his death in 1926.

For their Save the Date invitations, Meg and Brett started with my Art Deco "Swinging on the Moon" design. They utilized the same theme for their wedding invitations and event stationery. The large lavender welcome poster greeted guests and the corresponding programs alerted them to the evening's events.

Paper Moon Shoppe built a phenomenal Paper Moon photo backdrop for guests to really go "Swinging on the Moon". You will honestly never encounter such a unique way to memorialize your event than with a portable old-fashioned paper moon photo studio. Famed Photographer, Margot Landen shot the glamorous affair. Check out a few of her stunning photos!
