Holy moly. We all know the SMP offices are filled with a bunch of wedding geeks. We love love. But my ultimate wedding geeky-ness is coming out thanks to this SoCal wedding from Angie Silvy Photography. The soft color palette combined with the sweet ocean air is to. die. for. And not just that, but Isari Floral Studio & Event Design was able to put the modern twist on this classic soiree through their amazing floral design. I just die. Let your inner-wedding geek come out full force in the full image gallery - where there is even more!
After we got engaged, I accumulated an extensive bridal magazine collection, constantly perused SMP for inspiration and became obsessed with Etsy. Having a love for fashion and style, I absolutely loved every moment of the planning and design process!

We set out to plan a gorgeous wedding full of LOVE, fun and vintage glamour. We wanted a celebration of our love for each other, and our love for our family and friends. A fun and elegant party where our guests would have a ball.

Both of us immediately fell in love with the seaside forum, the gorgeous lawn over-looking the Pacific for the ceremony, the amazing oceanfront patio for a cocktails and the open-air reception space for dinner and dancing. We instantly knew it was the perfect venue for our wedding celebration.

The theme for the styling of the wedding came from my love of all things vintage and the color silver. We wanted something special, with lots of attention to detail. We added all the glamour with shimmering crystal chandeliers and candelabras, sparkling mercury glass and gorgeous white ruffled florals.

I fell in LOVE with my dress the first time I saw it in a magazine. With the drama and all the ruffles, it was love at first sight and I immediately knew it was the dress before even trying it on. My veil, headpiece, pearl necklace and sash were all custom designs. I had a vision…I absolutely loved creating the look and how it all came together.

Our wedding party looked gorgeous. The gentlemen looked very sharp in grey tuxedos, my lovely bridesmaids were stunning in platinum and pewter dresses and Dallas (the adorable flower puppy) pranced down the aisle in a silver tutu, pearls and a crystal leash. We had the most fabulous and fun wedding party, we are so lucky to have such amazing friends.

The entire day was pretty magical, there were so many favorite moments…I will never forget my excitement walking toward Erik for our “first look” - seeing the smile on his face and enjoying that very special moment with my handsome husband to be, the photo shoot and limo bus ride with our wedding party, walking down the aisle as Mr. and Mrs. Moeller dancing to “Marry You” and kicking off the reception with a pre-dinner dance party (everyone was on the dance floor from the first dance until we were seated for dinner). We really set the tone for a truly fabulous celebration! We danced the night away, ending with “Keep On Loving You” surrounded by all of our family and friends singing and swaying to the music.

Our wedding could not have been more perfect. It was the happiest day of my life, we had an absolutely amazing time celebrating with all the ones we love! It was unforgettable and we loved every moment. It was so incredible to be surrounded by our family and closest friends—dancing, eating, drinking and celebrating. We were overwhelmed by all the love and joy…we couldn’t have been more excited to begin our happily ever after…
