Think Your Bridesmaids Can’t Wear White? Think Again.

When it comes to bridesmaids’ style, there’s nothing I find chicer than a little white dress. And with her bridesmaids in white complementing her own lace gown, this gorgeous Bride’s wedding style is on point. From the fashion to the loose, romantic flowers to the rustic-meets-boho reception, this Malibu wedding is a California dream. See it all from Mariel Hannah in The Vault!


From The Bride…It was important that our wedding day embodied an intimate, down to earth reflection of our personalities and interests. We stumbled upon the Malibu Phoenix wedding location online. After one short visit, we knew right away that this setting, lush in green and complete with a sense of utter calm was exactly where we needed to be! It was our first and only site visit! In planning, we focused on embracing the natural beauty of the Latigo Canyon surroundings with a romantic, rustic touch.

There were so many special moments that day. One of my favorites included our pre-ceremony bride and groom first look and portrait session. We enjoy spending our free time exploring nature, therefore the Sycamore Tree forest seemed to be a perfect back drop for this intimate shoot.

Our garden ceremony included an acoustic Beatles cover of “Here Comes The Sun,” Native American sage blessing and vows that involved our guests promising to support us through our new journey. It was an incredibly special moment!

For cocktail hour our guests sipped homemade craft brew while Flamenco guitarist, El Javi’s melodies rang through the canyon’s naturally acoustic garden setting. The reception was extremely beautiful with wooden farm tables, green garland, succulents and florals, twinkly lights, candles and delicious food!

As the evening was winding down and dancing coming to a close, our DJ requested that we form a circle with our guests. We held hands, sang and danced to our last song of the evening. It was lovely to look around our circle of friends and family and to share that moment together. It was truly a night that we will never forget!

The entire day was much more beautiful than we could have ever hoped. We were extremely fortunate to have found our group of incredibly talented individuals that turned our dreams and visions in to a stunningly beautiful and super fun reality and with only three months of planning!

This Bride Wore the Most Beautiful Blush Gown EVER!

There’s no denying it really, this is the most beautiful blush gown in existence. Simply put, it needs to be in my closet like yesterday. Until I can find a way to make it my own I’ll be spending eternity in this gorge gallery captured by Samantha Kirk Photography. Feel free to join me, I’ll be camped out in The Vault!

From Samantha Kirk PhotographyWith spring here, I wanted to grab a team a vendors to inspire the upcoming spring bride for her spring and summer wedding. This gorgeous flowing blush dress by Chaviano Couture is perfect for any season and I wanted to capture this shoot in a way that brings out the dress and bouquet. Jenna and Emma from Poppy Design Co. put together the perfect bouquet that would inspired any bride to be during any season of the year but especially with spring.

Poppy Design Co say, “There was inspiration to make it spring inspired, but mixing in touches not often used, like queen Ann’s lace, seasonal lilac and honey suckle vine. The intention to stay true to the medium green was important. The local tube rise was a no brainer. This bouquet had no roses, which isn’t common.” I love this unique bouquet Poppy Design Co. put together and with any bride seeing this, they will love it too.
