What a beautiful day it was for Breanna & Theo’s engagement shoot in Palos Verdes, California. The scenery couldn’t be anymore perfect for us to capture their everlasting love. Starting at rustic stone pathways that lead us to dirt roads with beautiful greenery. Off to the cliffside with ocean views, we were able to shoot some awesome shots with their classic Harley Davidson motorcycle. Not to mention, the romantic beach setting. This couple had the beach to themselves giving us the opportunity to capture their love in the sweetest way. Walks along the water, sunset kisses and even the Palos Verdes lifeguard tower. This is only just the beginning to their love story!
You could say that Danielle and Morgan sure did experience the magic! This lovely couple had the wedding day of their dreams at La Venta Inn in Palos Verdes, California. Nestled in the hills above the Palos Verdes Peninsula, the views were absolutely breathtaking. The newlyweds had a cliffside ceremony overlooking the Pacific Ocean and an indoor reception in the Great Room. La Venta Inn offers the best of both worlds!
We were simply stunned by Danielle’s wedding dress detailed with a delicate bridal back necklace. Danielle’s entire look had everyone speechless when she walked down the aisle in her flowy white dress styled with louboutins and a floral head crown that matched the adorable flower girls. Add into the mix, her gorgeous bouquet with peonies and succulents, we are in love!
La Venta Inn has endless photo opportunities, whether it be the cliffside ceremony spot, panoramic views of Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean, stairways leading to intimate gardens and so much more! It doesn’t end there.. the stone fireplace, high ceilings and Spanish architecture made for the perfect wedding reception.
When it comes to details, you can pretty much check everything off the list. From customized koozies as favors, a polaroid guest book to elegant decor for the reception. Also, the rustic wooden signs that say “Let Love Grow” and “Welcome to our Beginning”, we just couldn’t get enough! Guests danced the night away celebrating the love of Danielle and Morgan while putting the fun props from the photo booth to good use! Luckily, there were flip flops available for the ladies to “Save Your Soles”.
Finally, it’s time to cut the cake! Mouths were watering at the delicious dessert bar. Seems like, it was never ending as they had everything from salted caramel mini cheesecakes to creme brûlée to chocolate ganache brownies and cake pops. Yum! As the night comes to an end, guests grab confetti pops for a send off and the new Mr. & Mrs. are smiling from ear to ear thinking about the ultimate dream wedding day. Congratulations to the bride and groom!
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.
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”.
