Beauty and the Beach

Meet Alice:

I know, I know, she's too beautiful. I have a hard time dealing with it since I saw that she is as beautiful without any makeup on.

Meet Arthur:

Yah, he's a stud.

This couple is not just physically gorgeous. They are also a wonderful couple. The dynamic of their relationship is one to admire.

So, moving along to their wedding. Their wedding was at a beautiful private estate overlooking the ocean.

We started with a beautiful outdoor ceremony, with two large garden floral arrangements at the altar and little paper cones full of petals along the aisle for guests to toss as they walked down the aisle as newlyweds.

Then, we had a wonderful cocktail hour full of made-to-order sushi, hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, and amazing entertainment by a trio of guitarists.  The bride and groom took this time to take breath-taking photos together.

After guests enjoyed the cocktail hour and the beautiful weather, they were welcome to enter the tented reception.

The reception fit the beautiful beach view setting. It had just enough formality with the swag-top tent and lantern chandeliers. It had the easy California style with hand-made wood tables, organic florals and chalkboard table numbers. It had the classic feel with beaded chargers and chiavari chairs. Not to mention, it had the personalization with fresh lavender we hand-tied with twine to beautiful ivory napkins, and fresh lavender stems pinned to the cake table linen.
The flawless cake was a show-stopper itself:
Here's a few detail photos:

The guests ate and danced under the stars, in a tented room full of love and celebration.
Oh, and because the nights get chilly by the beach, our bride had us set out beautiful white shawls for guests. We also had white flip-flops so those with painful shoes could dance all night. 
It was a beautiful day. One that Alice, Arthur, and all their guests will remember forever.
Lots of Love,
