Malibu Wedding by Elizabeth Messina Part II
March 15, 2012

We all remember watching the Royal Wedding. At five in the morning, a laughable amount of tears streaming down our faces. It was a game changer, after all. The kind of wedding that will be remembered forever, that brought the classics squarely back into fashion. The kind of wedding that urged tradition and ceremony, understated elegance and quiet beauty. Much like today's wedding...a game changer in its own right...photographed to heartbreaking perfection by Elizabeth Messina. This wedding is tradition and style, opulence and warmth. It's luxury and approachability. All rolled up into one hold your breath beautiful celebration that marries the idea that you can be classic and timeless while still being incredibly intimate and cozy. With design by Revelry, florals by Mark's Garden and planning by Mindy Weiss...this is one of those weddings that will go down in the SMP hall of fame. And will promptly become a wedding must-have for all of you classic brides out there.

The bride definitely had visions that I loved! Manzania branches sitting in a variety of moss were dressed with amnesia roses and a mixture of creams blush and white, vintage lace runners ran down the reclaimed wood tables that the bride found. Large magnolia trees sat between the tables and a collection of vintage chandeliers and fixtures hung over some of the tables. Each guests found their place card on their individually wrapped fresh baguette which was wrapped in kraft as well as a bottle of wine produced by the winery with the same kraft wrapping. A 21 piece band had the guests dancing under the stars and DJ Johnny closed down the house. 

Coming up next, we have a full fashion round-up and buying guide to illustrate how you can acheive this very look on a more modest budget. Yep, it's awesomeness defined and will definitely leave your wedding-loving hearts a-spinning.
