Gold and Blush Hued Outdoor Wedding in Malibu

Spanish charm and panoramic ocean views are a few things that Adamson House has in abundance. Thus, making it the perfect backdrop for this blush and gold shindig designed by Beth’s Diversions and floraled by Bride & Bloom. The bushels of peonies, the lace runners and  the gorgeous hand painted tiles are all wrapped up in this romantic day captured by Onelove Photography. Click here for so much more.


From The Bride…Malibu is very special to us!. Matt and I met while studying at Pepperdine University. So when this Texas girl started planning our wedding, Malibu was the perfect choice. We were immediately drawn to the Adamson House with its historical Spanish charm and panoramic ocean views. We wanted our guests to experience the incredibly beautiful ocean view at sunset as the backdrop for our vows. The reception site was our own secret garden where we celebrated under a gigantic sycamore tree. Although this if often the site of wedding ceremonies, it was the perfect place for our guests to enjoy the family-style southern cuisine and dance under the stars.

My rose gold engagement ring and blush wedding gown, which of course, I picked before making any other decisions, help inspire the romantic theme with gold, champagne, and blush hues. Once we confirmed our venue, we started to work on a logo that would reflect a romantic spanish style. A family friend helped us create our logo that was inspired by the Adamson House architecture and the use of tiles throughout the house. Our florist used a mixture of peonies and garden roses with a touch of succulents for the bouquets, aisle lanterns, Jan Barboglio candelabra pieces and reception table arrangements. During the cocktail hour, guests could tour the historic home. Each guests received a personalized, hand painted tile with logo and their table number. Our guests dined on fine china placed on wood plank tables with lace runners and layered with multiple floral arrangements and lots of candles. The ombre butter cream wedding cake was adorned with flowers and sat on a rustic wood cake stand that was handcrafted by my grandfather.

Family is a very important part our life. My grandfather was the officiant of the ceremony. My other grandfather gave and blessing and prayer and my brother read a scripture. Music is an integral part of my family. It was a special moment when my cousin, Cary Pierce, of Jackopierce, sang several original songs during the ceremony. After the toasting at the reception, my family stood and sang “The Lord Bless You and Keep You”. This is a family tradition that is sung at all family weddings.
