Rustic Glamour in Malibu

When you have 5 kids all under the age of 10, it’s safe to say you’re going to have one cute wedding party. Add the help of At Your Door Events, and you’re also going to have one awesome wedding. We love the pops of burgundy in Flower Allie‘s arrangements and the textured fondant cake from Sweet and Saucy. You can also find more of Krista Mason’s equally captivating photos of the event here.

From At Your Door Events… The very first inspiration image Shantell shared with me was that iconic shot of Kate Moss on her wedding day. You know – the one where Kate is smiling in a lush garden setting surrounded by children dressed in all ivory with romantic floral crowns?? She said, “thats what I want.” And from there we got started! I instantly knew where her head (and her heart) were. Shantell and Rex have 5 gorgeous children all under the age of 10. For Shantell — the design of the wedding was more about who she would be surrounding her on her wedding day and the joy Rex and her children brought to her. We kept our color palate very romantic using soft tones of ivory, gold, taupe, champagne, blush and deep burgundy for contrast. The overall look had some victorian and rustic influences. The guest tables were layered with texture! Our base linen was a Sultry Beige Peau de Soie Stain layered under a Champagne pearl sequin overlay by Glow Concepts and Fine linen. Over that, we place gold beaded glass chargers that served as a base for the personalized menus which were printed to show the guest’s name and their specific menu selection. Antique gold mirrors framed the base of each centerpiece which were beautifully designed by Flower Allie. We alternated tall gold candelabras with low arrangements in pewter and mercury glass urns. The sweetheart table was positioned under (1 of 5 crystal chandeliers), which we covered in lush florals to help frame the bride and groom. To provide some contrast to the guest tables, we opted for a rich burgundy taffeta overlay, underneath — Glow Concepts created a dramatic waterfall bustle topped with several gold cymbidium brooches. Antique throne-like chairs by Found Vintage Rentals provided and extra element of grander. As a special touch and a gift for the bride and groom I provided antique china dinnerware and gold flatware by Dish Wish. With all the incredible details that Shantell and Rex created for their guests I wanted to make sure that their first meal together as husband and wife was just extra special. The stunning wedding cake by Sweet & Saucy Shop had a milk glass knobby texture over the surface and covered in dramatic sugar flowers in a cascade design. AND – it tasted ahhhmazing! Shantell and Rex are the true definition of what family is all about. Because of their love and dedication to each other – orchestrating the design and planning of their wedding was just a pleasure and an honor. Thankfully we had the incredible talent of Krista Mason Photography to capture every detail!

From the Bride… It was very important to us to have a simple but very classic wedding. We searched all through Los Angeles and Orange County for the perfect venue, and when we got to Rancho del Cielo we knew it was the one. Once we got out of our car we both immediately let out a simultaneous gasp…so at Rancho del Cielo we were married.

It was important for our wedding to be OUR labor of love. We wanted a beautiful wedding (simple and elegant) but it was also very important for us to to wisely invest in our special day. We became the ultimate DIY couple, everything we made, we made together and everything we bought (from Etsy and the flea market ) we choose together. We planned our wedding in just 5 months so that meant a lot of long weekends on our feet at flea markets, thrift stores, discount stores, and garage sales.

The centerpieces and the aisle decorations were probably my own favorite pieces of the décor. For the centerpieces we found all the center vases/wine glasses from Ikea (yes Ikea), and for the smaller vases/punch cups encircling each main piece we went to flea markets across town to find a mix that worked just right. We found the mercury votive holders online at a discount retailer and finished off the center pieces with the table number tags, lace clothesline clips, and dyed burlap runners from Etsy. My husband and I actually made all of the aisle decor ourselves. We found simple oil bottles online and wrapped pink ribbon around the base and twine around the bottle neck to create the look that you see in the photo.

I so wish I could always see the world through Glass Jar Photography‘s lens.

With its effortless elegance and darling details, this gallery is overflowing with pretty. See it all here.

[whimsical]

From Glass Jar PhotographyA total California founded love over the course of a few years and multiple cities on the state.
Married at the historic Adamson House in Malibu, and focused on the huge tree by the beach and the Spanish tile area for the reception. Pretty over the moon with how the wedding film came together, given that I scored (wrote & recorded the music) for the Ceremony into Reception music for this project.
