Nothing is better than a day on the sunny California coast during the summertime. This lovely couple, Adrian and Mary, had perfect weather to say their ‘I Do’s’ earlier in June at the beautiful Villa Francesca estate on Pacific Coast Highway. During the months prior to their big day, we spent time with bride bringing her vision to life. She wanted something bright and chic for their wedding day. We worked together to bring her just that. A-1 Event Rentals provided the couple with beautiful linens that enhanced the overall style, tables and chairs, Corinthian style columns for the ceremony, an American plank dance floor, market lights, heaters, and catering equipment and table wares to accommodate the 100 person wedding.
The bride made sure their personal touches were all throughout the ceremony and reception. She handmade signs that provided guests with information as well as sweet quotes about love. She even made her own invitations and escort cards. As the ceremony progressed, the guests got to watch the couple pronounce their love for one another in a semi-circular formation which gave everyone an unblocked view of the couple as well as the Pacific Ocean. Before walking back up the aisle for the first time as husband and wife, the couple gave each guest a balloon for the release. After the I Do’s, the guests and the wedding party went off to enjoy the cocktail hour. Guests were asked to head over to the patio overlooking the ocean. Guests sipped on cocktails as they enjoyed the view. Upon entering the reception area which was also used for the ceremony, guests found their seat at beautifully decorated banquet tables. The tables were adorned with a stunning fuschia linen along with remarkable arrangements of flowers from The Ranch Flower Shoppe. Flower petals were sprinkled to create a table runner on each dining table along with gold, illuminating votives. There were also plum and gold accents throughout the event. Strands of market lights were strung which provided the most romantic lighting for the evening. Just enough light to illuminate the area, but not too much to ruin the intimacy of the event. The evening was captured by the talented Marisa from Marisa Q Photography. Guests danced the night away with tunes provided by Vox DJs. Towards the end of the evening the newlyweds cut into a beautifully decorated cake from Le Creme Bakery. Not only did guests get to enjoy the cake, but there were authentic Italian pastries to savor as well from Carrera Pastries. Coordination of the event was managed by At Last Event Planning. It was an evening to remember. We wish this loving couple a lifetime of love and happiness. We are so happy to be a part of your big day. Congratulations Adrian and Mary! You guys are a beautiful couple inside and out. All images provided by Marisa Q Photography
