My girls, Lisa Chin and Nicole Tanner KNOW vintage. These duo are the founders and owners of Fallen Into Vintage, my favorite clothing line in all of Los Angeles. They found, updated, reworked and custom fit vintage pieces for their clients. When they mentioned that they were working on vintage dresses for a group of bridesmaids and that Nicole and her family are throwing a DIY bohemian wedding reception, I was stoked! I wanted pictures, details! And then Nicole said, “You should come!” so Caitlin and I did. And I am so glad we went.
The Bride and Groom, Kamren and Rolando Tringale, were both born and raised in Los Angeles. Kamren is a senior online editor for nuvoTV (formerly Sí TV) and writes for Remezcla and MTV Iggy. Rolando is a family medicine doctor with a passion for
serving the under-served community and helping those struggling with addiction. The romantic Pisces in me LOVE the way they are together. Love their stories. And definitely approve of Kamren’s choice of having an earthy bohemian wedding.

I love Kamren’s dress! It’s a 1960′s vintage piece, 100% cotton, found at the Salvation Army. Fallen Into Vintage with the help of seamstress, Karolyn Keisel, reworked the dress from a big puffy gown that it was, to a beautiful, slender, strapless wedding gown. Perfect for the beautiful, talented, earthy bride.
It was a beautiful summer evening in Los Angeles. The weather was absolutely gorgeous. Nicole and her family had turned the front yard of her home into this amazing venue for a garden party. Every detail in the party was so well thought of. The table assignments were of the places where the bride and groom had traveled together and left special marks in their relationship.
They even built a hippy hut for the party!! I had a moment of wanting to drag Cait to sit with me in it and just chill in there…
Kamren and Rolando, congratulations again on your wedding. And though I am not a fan of James C. Dobson, I do share his view of marriage:
“Don’t marry the person you can live with; marry only the individual you think you can’t live without.”
Listening to the stories from your loved ones of your journeys until the two of you finally met, I truly believe that you did just that. Be with that one individual that you absolutely can’t live without.
Much love and happiness to you both…
