From The Elegant Ninja PlanningWe celebrated Christian and Jordan’s intimate fall wedding at the hilltop of Malibu Rocky Oaks Vineyard. Ninja Berlanti helped plan and create this effortlessly elegant affair with no shortage of tasteful details. We particularly loved the graceful fall touches– from the fur area rug to the mini white pumpkins that held handwritten place cards. Christian had a clear vision that she wanted to incorporate fall into her décor without coming off too trendy or seasonal–the floral arrangements were grounded by a natural French linen runner and surrounded by candles in vintage brass holders and assorted specialty votive all prepared by Peony and Plum.

We incorporated the same effortless sophistication into the rentals– from the french linen oval back chairs to the tuft lounge furniture (provided by Archive Rentals). The light wood dining table was the perfect foundation for the gorgeous clear cut place settings- also provided by Archive Rentals.

Another unique detail from their wedding was the striking champagne tower made up of old fashion champagne coups. Christian and Jordan loved it so much, they insisted on doing the celebratory tower pour which was a huge hit with all the guests.

We loved Christian’s stunning dress, and all photos were captured stunningly by Kurt Boomer photography.

From The Bride… When my fiancé, Jared had the chills walking into the Adamson House in Malibu, California; we decided on the spot that it would be our wedding location. Our wedding day chills continued and was a direct result of the most surreal moments, those moments where you want time to stand still and forever be captured. One of my favorite moments was when our pastor challenged us to not kiss each other 24 hours before our big “day of kiss” as Mr. and Mrs, making the kiss as husband and wife so meaningful and delicate.

Looking over the Malibu Pier, we shared our first look and a letter I wrote to Jared, “As your wife, today I commit to you, to us, setting sail on this hand-crafted boat, known as life, as we find gratitude together in the sunny days, swim through the rough waves, survive and thrive every storm, and dance together in the rain.” During this time that handcrafted decorative sail boat designed by his best friend Geoff, who has passed the year prior, was awaiting Jared’s first look as well.

Each touch created by Carina Mclaughin at Tealight Events expanded those chills through the little details, which was defined by the talent and ability of each vendor to execute on our simplistic, vintage beach theme. The final touch; a grateful goodbye to our favorite guests in attendance as they tossed birdseeds over us on our departure in a 1948 Mercury woodie.
