So Cal weddings are one-of-a-kind. With the sand and the sun and those ever-so-stylish brides, they’re the affairs that take me to a place of blogging bliss. But behind the pretty are teams of top notch vendors making it look all so easy. Take these Newport Beach nuptials, for example. With creative talents like Nicole Davis Design and Twig and Twine on board, the end result it a wedding that makes me want to say “I do” all over again. The photos from Ashlee Raubach have simply left me speechless, and the film from Ryan Southwell Films? An absolute hit.
From Ashlee Raubach…Just a few miles from the beach and situated in a rustic environment of tree’s and wood burning scents, the artistically hand made touches of details from the decor, to the flowers, cakes and wardrobes makes this wedding truly unique and inspirational. Nicole Davis designed this event along with her mother. She wanted this wedding to be reflective of the bride and groom, bringing together the Bride’s North Carolina southern charm and the Groom’s California cool. They envisioned an outdoor wedding reception setting the tone for this fun loving, head over heels in love couple to celebrate. The design was elegant and chic with rustic touches of reclaimed barn wood runners, mercury votives, white tufted furnishings, antique wooden tables, and amazing loosely styled florals that tied it all together. They did not want it to feel fussy or too formal, but reflect the couples style – effortless, comfortable, stylish, beautiful. The night was memorable with toasts from both fathers and the couple, and ended with dancing the night away under the dark sky lit by italian strung lights and chandeliers hanging from the trees.
