This wedding had me at Malibu, but then totally ran away with my heart when I laid eyes on all the gorgeous images from B&G Photography. That’s when I knew I was going to fall head over heels in love with this fête. And let me just say, I enjoyed every second of that fall. With Amber Events planning every perfect moment and Peony And Plum making sure pretty blooms covered every nook and cranny – this gallery is officially my dream come true.
From The Bride…Planning our Malibu wedding was no easy feat! For 8 months of our year long engagement, Leah was living in New York, starting a new job and studying for the CFA, while Brandon was in Texas starting his new Job for the Houston Astros and taking care of our lovable new puppy. Luckily we had awesome support from our families, and our wedding planner Amber (Amber Events) was fantastic through the whole process.
We always knew we would get married somewhere in California, as Leah grew up in Huntington Beach and her (very large) family still remains in the LA/OC area. However, as Brandon’s family and most of their collective friends live on the East Coast, we were determined to find a venue that would make the long trip worth while. Cypress Sea cove was a truly hidden gem, we couldn’t believe our luck when we stumbled upon it!
The venue provided a beautiful landscape, perfect for letting us use our creativity and allowing us to implement whatever our hearts (and our wallets) desired. Our rock-star team of Amber, Jen (from B&G Photography), Donna (from Monrose Catering) and Susan (from Peony and Plum), all went above and beyond with every step, we couldn’t be happier with how the whole event turned out. The food was spectacular (we ate every bite), the flowers were the perfect balance of rustic yet elegant, the dance floor never died out, and to top it all off we now have tons of photos capturing every moment.
We still get constant calls from our friends and family saying how lovely the event was, how amazing the food tasted, and how much fun they had. Now we look back though the pictures daily and remember just how amazing the whole experience was, we can’t wait for the video!
