I'm convinced California has the best wedding venues in the world (sorry fellow east coasters, we've got some beauties too!). Not only because they're purely stunning, like Fairmont Grand Del Mar... but because they emulate some of the most breathtaking destinations around the world—like this old-world Mediterranean vibe happening in today's inspiration from Cavin Elizabeth, Green Apple Event Co., Blue Ladder Botany and the entire vendor team. The perfect shade of pink and one gorgeous Marchesa floral dress later and I'm going to be coming back to this gallery all. day. long.

From Cavin Elizabeth Photography... Lately, I've been so inspired by European architecture and couture details. When putting together my spring editorial, I knew that I wanted to feature these, so I chose the Fairmont Grand Del Mar as the backdrop for our tablescape and couple. The Grand is nothing short of its name - it's old-world Mediterranean style makes the perfect backdrop for emulating Europe in Southern California.

Because the Grand has colorful walls of Mediterranean pink, we chose a predominantly neutral palette for our tablescape and florals. Green Apple Event Co styled our table with soft La Tavola linens, candles that were freestanding and nestled in marble holders, and metallic chargers upon which soft blush plates rested. These plates, along with Blue Ladder Botany's orchids and sweet peas provided enough of a color pop to tie into the existing colors at the venue without overwhelming the design.

Our models wore sophisticated wedding attire in keeping with the grandeur of the property and its grounds. I secured a gorgeous couture Marchesa gown for our bride that could not have been more perfect for a luxe bride who loves European style and high fashion. Our groom wore a sleek tux from The Black Tux - a perfect complement to the bride's gown.
