The minute I laid eyes on this next wedding, I was done. Absolutely, completely, wildly in love done. It’s the style musings of Mindy Weiss mixed with the pure, unabashed beauty of Elizabeth Messina’s photography that gets me every single time. And the result is total wedding heaven. Like pinch me, is this really my job kind of heaven with a ceremony site that literally stopped me dead in my tracks, an infusion of California chic details and flowers by Jeff Leatham that are so pretty, you almost want to eat them. This wedding is truly the definition of gorgeous and we’re just getting started. We plan on filling your lunch hour, your coffee breaks, your whole day with all the beauty this affair has to offer. If you can’t wait, sneak a peek at the full gallery right here.
















We’ll be back in a bit with the rest of this gorgeous celebration.  In the mean time, click here for the FULL gallery and you can also find it in the current issue of Pacific Weddings on newsstands now!

From the Bride… It just so happened that the day we chose happened to be 9/11. It wasn’t chosen for it’s significance. But since it was 9/11, Sandro painted an American flag on the sole of my Louboutin heel as our quiet homage to the importance of that day. We had an incredible team for our wedding and feel so blessed by what they were able to accomplish! My mother-in-law surprised us by bringing in Jeff Leatham from the George IV in Paris to be our head designer, along with Mindy Weiss as our planner. My mother-in-law has fabulous style and vision, so added with our input and the design team’s unbelievable aesthetic it really ended up being more incredible than we ever could’ve imagined!
