There's nothing better than using the ocean surrounding us as an inspiration for your wedding. We are obsessed with how this "Translucent Geometric" styled shoot came out. We are beyond honored to receive a feature in California Wedding Day Magazine. You can see that here. To start, here is a teaser of what's to come!
For the colors we went with blue hues to complement the ocean but decided to modernize the typical beach themed wedding by bringing in geometric shapes and different metals. We wanted to ensure that the ocean view was the area of focus so it was important that it didn’t become overpowered by the décor which is where the translucent idea came into play.
The bride wore a stunning gown provided by Camarillo Bridal. The low back and embellished straps portrayed a casual elegance that is perfect for an intimate affair. Veiled Beauty’s horse hair veil was the perfect ceremony accessory and a flower crown by xo Bloom took its place for a more casual reception look. The groom wore a suit provided by The Created Gentleman which was modernized with thick grey piping that paired perfectly with a blue patterned tie.
We decided to do something a little different by incorporating bridesmaids into the shoot. We had three gorgeous models who wore mismatched LuLu’s dresses. Instead of the typical bridesmaid bouquets xo Bloom created unique pieces for each of them. A necklace, ring, bracelet, and crown were all made with real flowers and stayed true to the modern vibe of the shoot.
It is true that diamonds are a girl’s best friend and no one creates a more unbelievably stunning engagement ring than Heidi Gibson. I am still in shock that we were able to get her to collaborate on this shoot! I think that Katrina Jayne Photography could create a whole album just with the photos she took of the ring. I think calling her obsessed is an understatement. If diamonds are a girl’s best friend then shoes definitely come in a close second and the pair of Sapphire Badgley Mischkas we used were definitely swoon worthy!
We started the day with a mock ceremony which was and intimate affair. The 16 ghost chairs from MTB Event Rentals tied in perfectly with the translucent theme. A simple modern arch was constructed from copper piping and from it hung a large piece of Plexiglas complete with stunning calligraphy by Kelly Patrice saying “My Love for you is deeper than the ocean”. A blue and white hued garland filled with thistle, dusty miller, and dahlias by xo Bloom added the final touch to the stunning set up!
After the ceremony we moved over to the most romantic sweetheart table set up on the Bel-Air Bay Club Terrace. The timing couldn’t have been better. The sunset was the perfect backdrop for our newlyweds. The one of a kind furniture and tableware provided by Pretty Vintage Rentals was modernized with amazing linens from Luxe Linen, more unique florals by xo Bloom, and stationary by Lynn and Lou Paper co.
After dinner of course comes dessert and Sweet Art Bake Shop didn’t disappoint with an amazing and unique cake. Glass Geometric Shapes with a blue and gold color scheme matched the table décor perfectly!
Once the sun went down our newlyweds met for a candlelit nightcap on the patio of the Bel-Air Bay club. The set up by Pretty Vintage Rentals created a comfortable yet chic lounge area for them to wind down and snuggle up!
We couldn't have been able to pull off this styled shoot without help from our wonderful vendors! Follow them here! Make sure to go to scroll to the end to see the full highlights of this shoot!
