We see plenty of perfect weddings pass by our screens. Perfect in many different ways. Some have the perfect style and some have details so dreamy we do a little dance. Sometimes we can feel the chemistry from the two lovebirds tying the knot just from the images alone, and that is our favorite kind of pefect. And then there are weddings like this one by Hazelnut Photography that is literally perfect in every way. Every.single.way. Classic, elegant, timeless, sophisticated – just perfect, and you can see it all right here.

From Hazelnut PhotographyGabrielle and Eric are classics, and their wedding day was no exception! Having grown up in Santa Barbara, Gabrielle chose The Four Seasons Biltmore for their nuptials. It’s classic, sophisticated, gorgeous and just the right level of formality. Her Monique Lhuillier gown and her Jimmy Choo shoes carried the same sensibility. They were married in a courtyard, surrounded by flowers, family and friends. The ceremony was personal and sweet, and the details were lush and romantic. There was laughter, and love absolutely abounded. The reception overlooked the water at the Coral Casino, and every detail seemed to pull the ocean just a few yards further into the room. The striped napkins and puffy centerpieces were absolutely perfect — the color scheme was taken from just outside the door. The wine flowed freely and the food was absolutely delectable, both of which were very important aspects of the wedding for Gabrielle and Eric. The reception was boisterous and fun! The band, The Spazmatics, kept the dance floor backed with the ’80s music that we all adore!
