This Malibu Wedding Is Everything
July 24, 2017
On their first date, this couple went skateboarding and ate acai bowls...and they have been inseparable ever since. With a start to their love story as adorable as theirs, how could their wedding not be incredible? A little bit  boho (the Bride's Claire Pettibone gown), a little bit modern (the ikebana-style centerpieces), a little bit rustic (the farm-style tables), and a whole lot of beautiful, this wedding planned by Smith + James Event Design & Production and captured by Madie McKay is everything.

From Smith + James Event Design & Production... McKenna and Jake are a dream couple, truly so in love and filled with such warmth and happiness. They are so joyful to be around, and we were so honored to be a part of their wedding day. They first met because Jake's sister-in-law was McKenna's hairdresser and played matchmaker. How cute is that?! For their first date, they went skateboarding and ate acai bowls and have been inseparable ever since.

The couple traveled from Nevada to have their dream wedding at Triunfo Creek Vineyards in Malibu, California, one of our favorite venues in Los Angeles. First, they had a small, intimate ceremony inside the Los Angeles California temple. Being of the Mormon faith, there are no photos taken at this time as it is extremely sacred.

McKenna had a vision for her wedding reception to be set amongst nature and filled with beautiful blooms and modern touches. She was such a stunning and relaxed (!!!) Bride in her bohemian Claire Pettibone gown. And of course her Luna Bea crown was such a beautiful detail. McKenna designed their wedding rings herself, and they are truly so cool and modern. We also love the red vintage mustang they rented to scoot around town.

Crystal of Heirloom Design House really outdid herself with this one. The Bride's bouquet and ikebana-style centerpieces were sensational and made everything feel so modern and bespoke. Guests arrived to the sound of a local band called The Standards that McKenna found walking through a local farmer's market, and the guests were invited to play lawn games and mingle. As the sun set and dinner ended, the party started with Dart DJs spinning to an amazing dance party!
