Wedding Wednesday!

Every so often I stumble upon a wedding that stands out like no other. I first spotted this gorgeous event on my favorite wedding site, Style Me Pretty. After drooling over the images for almost an hour and picking apart every single little detail, trying to figure out why I loved it so much, I still wanted to see MORE! After a little Google search I found out that the featured bride actually owns her own floral design business in Los Angeles, JL Designs, and has a blog! Lucky for me, I was able to get a better glimpse at the details, photogoraphy and all around gorgeousness that made up this chic Malibu wedding.

The event took place at a private, ocean side residense in Malibu over labor day weekend in 2008 .Once the venue was set, the bride describes their planning process by stating that "we wanted something people hadn't experienced before as a wedding setting...something laid-back, relaxed, free-flowing...but nothing overly trendy...kind of a 'classic modern' look..." I think they successfully accomplished this, and much much more!

Family heirlooms such as her grandmothers and grandfathers rings, mothers pendant, etc were strung onto a necklace and attached to the brides bouquet of white phalenopsis orchids . Not only is this a sentimental touch, but gorgeous as well! 

Here's the bridesmaids bouquets with a touch of bohemian glam added by way of gold broaches. I love the use of succelunts you see throughout the wedding, in addition to all the white orchids, callalillies and roses.

Instead of a traditional pillow for the ring barer to carrier, they opted for a large chunk of coral to hold the rings instead. I don't think you can get more creative than that!

The couple wanted something different for seating than the typical white folding chairs so they opted for benches which optimized the view. Pure genius!

 The reception was based on the idea of a "free flowing environment" as apposed to a stuffy, sit down dinner. They created a lounge environment with cabanas, ottomans, banquettes, coffee tables, and highboy tables.

The groom is an architect and wanted to incorporate something 'structural' into the design of the wedding. He designed a geometrical, modern style cake. The bride designed and had the lucite stand fabricated which includes manzanita branches, crushed glass and white coral. This has to be the most unique wedding cakes I have ever seen!

Don't you love seeing what professionals in the wedding business create for their own special day? I certainly do! For more details on this fabulous Malibu wedding you can check it out here and here
