This wedding is everything. Everything that makes my hearts start to pitter patter, everything that makes me adore weddings. It’s sparkly gowns on gorgeous maids and stunning Jimmy Choo shoes. It’s the seaside views of L’Auberge Del Mar and breathtaking florals from Isari Flower Studio + Event Design. And it’s the pure joy on the faces of this new Mr. & Mrs. It’s moment after moment captured beautifully by We Heart Photography, and it’s all sitting pretty right here.
From Krissie, the coordinator at L’Auberge Del Mar: Beth, the lawyer, coasted around the bridal changing room with such content; she had a continuous smile and radiated the bridal glow from the top of her soft swept updo to the tips of her Jimmy Choo heels. Bridal-ness at its best. John, the wine connoisseur, surfed the ocean waves by morning and by the afternoon was dashingly dressed to impress. I have never seen a couple so at ease for their new life journey that was about to begin.
With a sparkle in their eyes that later illuminated the market lighting above the ceremony they said their “I do’s.” The bridesmaids stood elegantly in navy blue sequins the mimicked the waves from a distance. It was simply incredible. Isari’s lanterns lined the aisle, that later adorned the long tables with an eclectic mix of candles, hydrangeas, anemones and mercury votives. This momentous occasion signified love, bliss and cheer. The hand selected wines at the dinner tables were carefully and strategically placed by John. Watching him place each bottle of wine on the tables was comparable to watching a chef in the kitchen selecting, tasting and creating the perfect dish. Remarkable.
No guest was left without thought as the Maid of Honor, Sarah, had handcrafted each program, place card and menu. Each table was rich with a zestful enthusiasm and excitement for the newlyweds. Whether it be the carefully selected wines or the details, it is certain that this couple inspired and shared their love to all of their guests around them. The night came to close after an energetic grand entrance, and a goose bump worthy first dance – the night was alive. The bride and groom remained in the center of the dance floor– heels kicked off, hands in the air … their adventure is just beginning. To the new Mr. & Mrs. Vidal, cheers and let’s raise a glass to the newlyweds!
