California wedding pros transformed RuPaul's Drag Race All-Stars winner Trixie Mattel's hotel, aptly named Trixie Motel, into wedding paradise.

Consider today’s feature a slice of paradise with a dash of fabulousness. In the pursuit of hosting unforgettable weddings, The Trixie Motel collaborated with Love Lister Events by Frank to create a styled shoot that could only be described as drag wedding maximalism.

Owned by the iconic singer, actor, and RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3 winner, Trixie Mattel, this unique venue is the epitome of glamor and style.

“It was important to us to showcase this beautiful venue the very best way we could,” mentions Frank. “The power of drag and queer joy was felt throughout the day, and it was seriously one of the most magical days to be on set for.”

Events by Frank enlisted a stellar creative team of queer wedding professionals, allies, and full-time drag queens. From vintage cars that scream retro glam to disco balls table decor that add a touch of disco fever, this styled shoot oozes glamor from every angle.

Champagne towers and a color palette awash in pink make it an ode to maximalism, ensuring that every element is unforgettable. The attire was also taken to the max with one groom donning a sleek black tuxedo with velvet green bowtie and the other groom in a fabulous patterned pink suit with a velvet mustard bow tie. Also just wait until you see the flowers and incredible cake design! (*jaw instantly drops*)

Chock-full of ideas and ready to inspire, sashay your way through these images captured by Ashley LaPrade Photography!
