Goal for today: pin every single pretty image Larissa Cleveland Photography snapped from this wedding. Because to say that we’re completely smitten with every colorful detail of this crazy chic California affair is an understatement. So if you need us we’ll be in The Vault and re-watching every sentimental second Weddings on Film captured below!
From Ruby and Rose…Sivan and Jeremy had very large families they wanted to include in the wedding, so the challenge from the beginning was to find a venue that could accommodate a large number guests and yet still feel intimate and personal. Sivan grew up in the oceanside town of Pacifica and the couple was really drawn to the natural beauty of the coast. With its dramatic rocky cliffs, wind-swept wildflowers, and waves crashing in the background, the Ritz at Half Moon Bay made the perfect setting for their celebration.
We pulled inspiration from all of those beachy Northern California elements to create a design that felt romantic, summery and elegant without being too formal. Anna Hoffman of Loop Event Arts artfully combined Fuchsia bougainvillea, deep purple Clematis, raspberries, blush toned dahlias and garden roses, eucalyptus, olive, succulents and air plants, which created a gorgeous contrast to the natural setting outside and neutral palette inside the reception space. To make things feel more intimate, we designed three large loose wreaths of greenery that filled in the space and also beautifully framed the head table.
One of my favorite details is the envelope liner from their invitation suite from Bella Figura – a pale blue watercolor wash which gave it that perfectly romantic, ethereal beachy vibe we wanted to capture.
From the Bride…I could always picture “being married” to Jeremy but not “getting married” to Jeremy. But after finding our perfect venue near where I grew up, I could start to picture our wedding day!
When planning our wedding, it was important to us to honor our families and blend our Jewish and Persian traditions, work with talented vendors that could capture and enhance who we are and what we love, and delight our guests with fantastic food and mind-blowing music.
