” Visitors come from all over the world to witness the iconic magic the California coast has to offer, and we wanted to capture this refined coastal spirit in our styled shoot. Big Sur has an amazing color palette to work from, we simply added textural layers to compliment the natural coastal tones of blues and greys, keeping the feel of the shoot organic and simplistic.
Our tabletop was styled with lush floral arrangements and mauve accents to add visual interest in the florals and the appetizer plates, while copper and gold elements added sophistication. We selected the glassware as it reflected a beautiful blue tone, reminiscent of a cool ocean breeze. The stationery design evokes an elegant beachy aesthetic while the copper wax seal helps to elevate the design along with the romantic calligraphy.
Oversized bouquets channel the California free spirit while the bride’s Bo & Luca dress added a perfect dash of whimsy with the detailed bodice and striking low back to keep the design from feeling too serious and added some magic. We love the elegance of a low side ponytail for brides – it feels refined, while still allowing for movement in the ocean breeze. ” – Jennifer
