Gold Gilded Goddess Wedding Inspiration

I have a major weakness when it comes to two things – one being gold, and two being the beach. So when Honey Honey Photography captured the combined results of my absolute favorite things in the whole wide world, I am one radiating Bride-to-be. Filled with The English Garden blooms and one perfectly gilded Elaya Vaughn gown, this gorgeous gallery is the perfect place to be. More here!

From Honey Honey Photography… For the naturally undone bride with an air of magic and mysticism. A quiet beauty; bare footed, free, yet with an other worldly elegance. Inspired by royalty, jewel tones and an untamed overcast Malibu beach setting. A breath-taking backdrop overlooking the soft waves and rocky shores – with light peeking through stormy hued clouds. A bouquet with overgrown and wild foliage paired with deep hues to match her jewel tone lips. Her dress dipped in gold, and lace caressing her shoulders and down to her fingertips, complementing the neutral hues of sand and water. Married beautifully with Found Rentals antique velvet chair, tray and antique gold saxophone, a symphony of Edwardian charms. Sweet and delightful Bottega Louie mini cakes laced with jewel toned fruits, chocolate mouse tarts with gold foiled hazelnuts. Hair in a sophisticated and romantic up-do. Delicate gold flecked butterfly details sewn to the train following the gilded goddess inspired bride.

Elegant Calamigos Ranch Wedding

Set amongst the enchanted Malibu mountains and sprinkled with glowing chandeliers, this enchanted forest fete from Sara Lucero and Amari Productions is captivating to say the least. Because when the Bride’s mother owns a lighting company, Mi Casa Lighting, drenching your Big Day in gorgeous chandeliers is a must. Coordinated beautifully by A Signature Wedding, every piece fits together like a perfectly pretty puzzle.


From Sara LuceroGeorge is an East Coast boy and Angelica was born and raised on the West Coast, but they fell in love in Chiacgo and now have their lives there together. The wedding day was mixed with ivy league quality details and a laid back southern California charm… and it was absolutely perfectly beautiful.

From the beautiful Bride…Walking towards my husband that day at Calamigos Ranch, I felt a deep sense of peace and ineffable bliss that will stay with me forever. The beauty of the surroundings granted me a sensory experience unlike any other; the sight of the sunshine peaking through the trees with the majestic Malibu mountains in the background, the sweet fragrance of flowers and sweet scented herbs that filled the air, the gentle sound of the Spanish guitar playing in the background, the palpable outpouring of love from our loved ones, all beautifully coalesced to amplify, and make tangible, the feeling of the abundance of life and love in our lives.

From the onset, we knew we wanted our wedding to reflect our relationship; easy, natural, simple, serene, and whimsical. An “enchanted forest” theme seemed fitting. Primary petals helped the enchanted forest come to life with lots of beautiful greens, like olive and eucalyptus, for a minimal feel. We believed that the natural surrounding was beautiful as it was and wished to only minimally enhance nature.

My mothers store Mi Casa Lighting, provided the 12 chandeliers that decorated the ceremony and reception, and that added the “enchanted” to the “enchanted forest” theme. The cloudy blue bridesmaid dresses contrasted perfectly with the abundance of green and were reminiscent of of the beautiful brightness of the sky. Following the ceremony, everyone danced the night away under a large canopy to Dashing Events tunes.

In the end, we could not have envisioned a more perfect day. Thanks to our wedding planner Monique at A Signature Wedding, and everyone else, our day was filled with much harmony, nature, love, happiness and laughter. Thanks to Sara Lucero and Amari productions for capturing our big day.

Sweet Malibu Engagement Session

I’m pretty sure that Marlene and John of Koman Photography are magnets for the sweetest couples ever. And these two cuties? Well, they are surely no exception. They’ve drenched this gallery with their beautiful love and threw in some fun details for good measure—from a pink beach cruiser to the heart garland, it’s adorable as ever.

From the beautiful Bride-to-be… Sam and I first met in downtown Los Angeles at a mutual friend’s housewarming. Upon first meeting, I didn’t pay much notice to Sam, but after a few more chance encounters I became interested to know more about this fun-loving and easy-going guy. Through multiple chat sessions on Facebook and enough patience by Sam to endure dinner dates at 11pm due to my new job, he won my heart. After a year of dating, he proposed to me in Italy, and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to able to share our life journey together.

For the engagement session, we really wanted a fun, natural, and whimsical feeling that will capture who we are as a couple. Luckily our amazing photographers, Marlene & John Koman, knew the perfect spots in the Malibu hills. We had perfect lighting for a playful picnic underneath a majestic oak tree, reminding us of our hike in Cinque Terre the morning after the proposal. We then headed down to the beach at Paradise Cove, which mimicked the night of the engagement where we walked along the sandy shores of Vernazza. The entire day together was a ton of fun, and we’re both so glad to have these photos as dear memories.
