Now that your Halloween sugar high is in full effect, we decided to round out this Friday with one of the prettiest white-on-white weddings we’ve ever come across. It’s what happens when My Bride Story takes the style reigns for a day anchored in classic design + glam winter whites, and the captures from Erin Hearts Court? Well, they’re the kind of photos that’ll remain timeless forever.
From The Bride…Jon and I met in Santa Monica on Carmageddon weekend when the 405 was closed and everyone stayed put and hung out in their neighborhoods. We met at a pizza parlor and spent the next year and a half living and enjoying life at the beach. Jon proposed on a sunny afternoon while we were walking on the beach. He had the whole thing planned out perfectly and we stayed the night at Casa del Mar, which is just down the street from our apartment. I knew right away that we should also get married there and he agreed. Step one of wedding planning was done.
The only thing I knew beyond the location was that I wanted a white wedding with no bridal party. We have five families between the two of us and we wanted each one of our family members to be a part of the wedding. We chose one of my brothers to be the wedding officiant and everyone else would walk down the aisle wearing whatever they chose.
While searching wedding websites for ideas I saw a wedding that I thought was beautiful. I contacted the planner, Esther Kim, we met and I knew she was perfect. The rest of the planning was fun and easy. Esther and I worked so well together and the finished product was better than anything I could have ever dreamed of.
Jon and I designed a wedding ceremony that matched our personalities and showed the tremendous amount of love we have for one another. The room for the ceremony was lit with candles and filled with white flowers. It was truly breathtaking and our favorite part of the day. It really was the best day of our lives, getting to celebrate with all our friends and family from near and far. We can’t thank our families enough for all their love and support. We look forward to working with Esther to help us celebrate future milestones.
