It’s easy to get distracted by the details of a wedding. The pretty accents that we work so hard on, that set our wedding aside from all the rest. But at the heart of those details is something far more magical. Love. Plain and simple. And this couple, against a gorgeous beachside backdrop with photographs by Closer to Love – had the love part of things totally nailed. Click her for more.
From the bride…We were very selective when it came to our wedding venue- we wanted more of an outdoor feel with pretty views and after a thorough vetting process we ultimately decided the St. Regis in Monarch Beach, CA which fit all of our needs. A big priority for us was to be surrounded by our family and closest friends in more of an intimate feel.
We decided not to have a bridal party and really focus on US, we wanted just the two of us with our deacon exchanging vows in front of all our loved ones. We wanted everybody to enjoy themselves and celebrate with us. When we are not working we are at the beach, it is one of the things that really brought us together.
When it came time to decide on our theme, it was a given- Beach-y theme with Coral and Aqua accents! We are very easy going and casual and wanted our personalities in every aspect of our wedding. We worked together with the wonderful team at Simplistic Elegance, Michelle and Sri, and they helped put our vision into a elegant beach wedding! They had wonderful ideas of incorporating aqua accents, driftwood, seashells and lanterns into our design. It was fun to see their creativity in action- we were absolutely blown away by how well everything came together and how well it represented us both. Our wedding was perfect and we couldn’t be happier!
