Weddings by the sea are hands down my cure for anything. Doesn’t matter the coast, as long as there’s a sprawling ocean view and a spread of sand and I’m one happy blogger. And if it’s dressed in the prettiest nautical touches of navy and stripes like this Casa Del Mar fete from Jasmine Star, then it’s sure to keep me coming back for more. See the entire shindig planned by Intertwined Events in the gallery!
From Katie Webb of Intertwined Events… A day full of cultural history and joy surrounded loved ones at Maya and Uriel’s traditional Jewish wedding at Casa Del Mar. The large Ballroom was filled with family who traveled from Israel to join in the celebration. Loved ones watched in awe as the newly married couple kissed under a custom chuppah adorned in luscious florals designed by Inviting Occasions.
The bride’s dress inspired the striped linens on the tables, as well as the stripes on the cake. She fell in love with the dress from a picture online and purchased it without even trying it on! His suit was custom made in a Navy fabric with a patterned liner inside the jacket. He also customized it with a little note inside saying “Mr. Right” and her dress had inscribed “Mrs. Always Right”.
Before the marriage ceremony, a customary bedeking ceremony was held. Uriel and the parents signed the ketubah, a gorgeous Jewish prenuptial document that outlines the rights and responsibilities of the groom and relation to the bride. Maya welcomed every guest and said a personalized blessing for each individual.
In a beautiful twist on tradition, Maya was escorted down the aisle by both her mother and her mother-in-law! All of the ceremony elements were beyond special!
Talk about special, the couple made a donation to (our favorite cause), Recreation Camp, in place of favors!
Design inspiration was based on the bride’s desire for classic elegance. From deconstructed florals to an all white motif, this wedding radiated class! They had a custom gobo created for the dance floor. In lieu of a traditional guest book, the couple provided blank books at each table that also doubled as the table numbers. Guests were invited to leave well-wishes, advice for the newly married couple to read on the anniversary of the corresponding table number/year.
Guests were treated to a full dessert bar with a wide array of sweet treats and even goody bags to take a treat with them! If that wasn’t enough to satisfy a sweet tooth a s’mores station outside overlooking the moonlight dancing on the pacific ocean!
