Sarah and Kyle were married at the historic Adamson House, right on the beach in Malibu. They fell in love with the venue because of the amazing 100+ year old tree that they were married under and the ocean views. Their Save-The Date featured a watercolor drawing of the tree and invited guests to "meet us in the garden." ~from Rebecca Yale Photography
Twine Events used both the ocean and garden themes throughout the day. They used seashells mounted on lucite as the table numbers and multi-colored sea glass as the escort cards for something from the ocean and to bring in a little garden element they gave out cookies with pressed flowers on them. As favors, Copper Willow Paper Studio pressed small muslin bags with tiny notes inside each bag printed on plant-able seed paper with a sheet of paper containing seeds that could be planted to grow flowers.
The girls wore light blue Joanna August's dresses in the same color, but chose their own silhouette, which paired beautifully with the lush bouquets and trailing blue and green ribbons created by Flowerwild. The bride's nieces and nephews served as her adorable flower girls and ring bearers donning bowties and flower crowns for the occasion.
The bride wanted a lightweight beach appropriate dress and chose a beautiful lace number with an intricate veil and paired it with simple nude heels, bracelets from both mothers and a borrowed handkerchief that also served as her something blue.
The reception was held on the other side of the house with a beautiful ocean view. Tables were a mix of long and rounds with light blue table runners with matching napkins from La Tavola Fine Linens with hand tied silk ribbons at each place setting. The tables were sprinkled with a mix of larger centerpieces, smaller bud vases and hundreds of candles in both clear and colored mercury glasses.
Guests enjoyed cocktail hour in the courtyard of the house where they found their seats in a beautiful escort card display of sea glass placed on a billowing piece of blue silk resembling the ocean, with a large floral installation and sprinkled with bud vases of dahlia's. Guests enjoyed passed hors d'oeuvres beautifully crafted by Woah Nelly and two signature drinks served on inlayed trays from the Ark with sprigs of lavender in them.
The couple enjoyed their first dance to Etta James' At Last while the sun turned golden behind them and then cut their cake before sneaking off for some golden hour portraits. Guests enjoyed a family style meal while the bride and groom's father's and siblings made toasts. In addition to the cake Woah Nelly created beautiful fresh fruit and chocolate trays that were placed on each table for guests to nibble on during dancing.
