Happy Thursday Lovelies!
Today I am happy to share with you one of our more modern weddings from last season. Eunnie & Brian came to us with a specific vision in mind, and we had the best time bringing their ideas to life. The love birds knew they wanted a clean and elegant costal soiree, where their closest friends and family could celebrate their love, and here is how it turned out:
The couple immediately fell in love with the idea of getting married at Wayfarer’s Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this venue, it is seriously one of the most beautiful, and somewhat famous, places to get hitched in SoCal. It is a completely glass chapel with a crazy view of the Pacific. I mean, where else could you capture photos like this (and thankfully Lin & Jirsa knows exactly how to photograph this space so that you get the most bang for your buck!).
After the couple said their nuptials, the guests were transported up the Pacific Coast Highway to the gorgeous Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica. The ride even included a complimentary snack pack made by Eunnie herself to keep everyone happy during the long ride up the coast. The guests enjoyed yet another ocean view during cocktail hour before moving into one of the ballrooms, which we transformed into a magical glowing oasis, for the main reception. We draped the space, from top-to-bottom, in white and then added purpley-pink lighting everywhere (believe me when I tell you that it looked like Virgin America up in there!). We topped off the look with a white dance floor and fun silver details to create the modern, white, metallic, and purple celebration the love birds had envisioned. Enchanted Gardens brought in a few different centerpiece styles, with orchids as the main star throughout, which brought a sense of understated elegance to the party!
Eunnie made all the signage for the day including menus, place cards, table numbers, favor tags and more! The couple gifted their guests personalized wine bottle stoppers as a functional yet fab take-home gift! The most fun part of the wedding (in my opinion, aside from eating, drinking and dancing, of course) was how they brought their dog, Busby, into the celebration. Everyone just fell in love with him! After dancing the night away and spending hours in the Photo Booth, the couple retired to an after-party with all their besties, where they celebrated until the wee hours of the morning.
