This Santa Monica wedding at The Beach Club is the epitome of all things oceanside chic. Picture perfect from the bride’s stunning Carolina Herrera frock to the navy mix-matched maids’ dresses – this modern, nautical number has me a little bit giddy! Stephanie Godfrey Photography captured that famous California light gorgeously, and lucky for us, there’s a gallery brimming with even more!
From Stephanie Godfrey Photography… The wedding took place at the Santa Monica Beach Club on a picture perfect day. Katie and Will got ready at her parents residence in Hancock Park where we did the first look and most of the formal portraits. No one was stressed and it all flowed together seamlessly. Each bridesmaid wore a navy dress that was purchased either from Anthropologie or Ralph Lauren and held a pretty peach bouquet made with love by girls at The Little Branch. The bride looked stunning in a beach appropriate eyelet gown from Carolina Herrera. Buttons from the Mother of the Bride’s wedding dress were sewn onto the Bride’s gown. A piece of the veil from her maternal grandmother was sewn into the bodice of her gown with a small blue ribbon. A gold band that belonged to the bride’s paternal grandmother was tied to her bouquet with a white ribbon.
The groom wore his father’s wedding band which was inscribed with the date that he and the groom’s mother met. The bride’s wedding band was a vintage Tiffany ring belong to her mother. The bride’s vintage pearl bracelet was borrowed from her mother. The bride’s gold necklace was a gift from the groom and the pearl necklace and earrings were a gift from the groom’s family.
