It’s my belief that a destination wedding should literally and figuratively whisk you away, where the bride, groom and all their guests are removed from reality for a brief but beautiful bit of time. And it just so seems that this handsome couple would agree with me, saying “I do” in a chic celebration, designed by Mishka Designs and coordinated by Leslie Bost of One Happenings. Iris and Light captured every second of this stylish soiree for us to fawn over in our VAULT right this way!
From Mishka Designs…Kate and Howie’s wedding week included a beautiful cruise around the famous Los Arcos and culminated in a beautiful, garden-inspired wedding at the now renamed The Resort at Pedregal. Kate loves details and she poured her heart and soul into every detail of the wedding… from the floral grown and beautiful shoes she wore at the rehearsal cruise to the wedding invites, save-the-dates, welcome bags down to the shade of blue ribbon tied around the napkins at her reception.
Her ceremony walkway walked right into the middle of the infinity pool and created a beautiful backdrop, as though they were standing at water’s edge (which they pretty much were!). We were granted permission to take out the in-house light fixtures at her reception location and replace them with beautiful crystal chandeliers and that created a warm, beautiful ambience for later-on in the evening. Some more special details from Kate’s wedding included remembrance photos for her bouquet wrap, hand-embroidered handkerchief for her groom, all signage was hand-painted (including the lengthy escort board!), the menus took months to design in order to get the font and the colors the perfect shade.
The love Kate and Howie had for each other radiated from every fun-filled moment to the next and their wedding was planned with the same loving detail that they both put into their courtship.
