Monarch Resort Wedding

It was a beautiful day at Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California for Emily and Sean’s wedding. Everything from the venue to the decor was absolutely perfect.

What can be more romantic than getting married on the Southern California coast? Monarch Beach Resort offers several oceanfront venues that fit any style you are looking for. Whether you desire an intimate setting or plan to host 800 guests, this resort has it all. Also, couples have the choice between one of their four different ceremony locations. Emily and Sean exchanged vows in the Botanical Garden under Monarch Beach Resort’s beautifully structured wedding arch. The reception took place at Club 19, which showcases an outdoor terrace with views of the ocean and golf course.

Emily opted for a lovely strapless ball gown wedding dress for the ceremony. Later on, she changed into a red silk dress for the reception. To all our future brides, changing dresses for the reception is such an ultimate game changer! Her white and light pink rose bouquet truly brought the whole look together.

After a photoshoot with the newlyweds across the Monarch Beach Resort’s grounds and the beach, the reception was about to begin. The wedding reception decor was absolutely stunning. Most noteworthy, the tall wedding centerpieces included white roses, light pink roses and everyone’s favorite, hydrangeas. Every place setting had a beautiful clear charger with gold studs around the perimeter. Emily and Sean’s guests were welcomed to their seats with favors, which were personalized jars of honey. Even the sweetheart table had a backdrop with their initials.

Brick Wall | Verandas Beach House

Verandas Beach House in Manhattan Beach, California was everything MJ and Robert hoped for when planning their special day. Complete with an intimate garden for the ceremony, stunning ocean views for portraits and a modern indoor space for the reception. What more could you ask for?

We are hopelessly in love with MJ’s floral lace wedding gown detailed with glossy patent leather Salvatore Ferragamo Vara pumps. Robert, on the other hand, opts for a modern blue suit and bow-tie, perfect for a casual chic beach wedding. Add into the mix, everyone’s favorite florals like peonies and roses in the bride’s bouquet to complete the look.

Guests were blown away by the beautiful floral canopy in the garden at Verandas Beach House, as they anxiously waited for the ceremony to begin. Everyone was speechless when the groom played the violin for his bride as she walked down the aisle. Lovely wedding vows lead to I Do and we then wonder off to the beach with the bride and groom. The couple had the beach to themselves, so we could capture breathtaking photos of their love in the sweetest way.

“Our Story”

Pore over all the gorgeous details that tell their love story from the beginning. The gift table is lined with pictures, capturing favorite memories of the bride and groom. Wedding Tip Alert: MJ and Robert printed out photos of them for guests to write well wishes on the back. If you are looking for a creative guest sign in book idea – I think you just found it! Let’s not forget the paintings they displayed with a sign reading “Our Story”. It seems this couple loves to paint, but not just any kind of painting, paintings of their love story, which they brought to life on their special day.

After a peaceful stroll on the beach with the newlyweds, it was finally time for the main entrance. The moment their friends and family were all waiting for! Little did they know, MJ and Robert had a little surprise in store. Let’s just say that Robert isn’t the only one who knows how to play the violin. The bride and groom surprised their guests with a musical duo following their introduction as the new Mr & Mrs! However, the surprises certainly don’t end there when they break into a choreographed dance that really got the party started!

After all that dancing and celebrating, the guests were definitely thankful for the multiple favors generously given by the bride and groom. One in particular being a “wake up kit”.
