We always love working with Alchemy Fine Events. They always are always so creative & inspiring, so when Alchemy came to us and told us of a nautical themed wedding on the beautiful coast of La Jolla, we were pretty excited.  Then, they revealed that this beachy wedding had a color palate of playful pastels & was anything but typical.  To say we were over the moon would be an understatement.

When we got our hands on these photos by Ashley Kelemen, we knew we had something seriously special on our hands & we are so excited to get to share this special wedding with a magical couple with you today on our blog, and also on 100 Layer Cake!

This special wedding featured on Style Me Pretty is very near & dear to our hearts!  We’re not only crazy about how this pretty beach ceremony & reception turned out, but we could not love the couple any more than we do!

You’ll understand why we’re smitten with this Bride & Groom after gazing at their romantic & rustic beach wedding we had the pleasure of designing, providing rentals & florals for!
See the full feature on Style Me Pretty Calirornia HERE.

 

From the bride…

“Krista Jon, our florist, really inspired inspired us! We wanted a vintage but romantic setting & she really made our vision come to life. I loved that everything was sort of free flowing yet perfectly structured.

From the bride…

“The inspiration {of our wedding} was a rustic, colorful, warm and intimate California celebration. We love color and couldn’t decide on just a couple colors as a theme, so we decided to make the wedding as colorful as possible – the colored vintage glass vases and {from Archive Rentals} multicolored flowers set a romantic tone. We wanted the banquet tables to be overflowing with lush flowers, to show off all the gorgeous blooms available in springtime in California, so we let our wedding designer/planner, David Pressman and the incredible florist he introduced us to, Krista Jon, run wild with colorful blooms to create a flower paradise! It was heaven!”

We couldn’t have said it better!  This eclectically styled and colorful wedding was such a pleasure to be a part of & we are thrilled on how everything turned out!  Just looking at these bold and beautiful blooms photographed amazingly by Next Exit Photography brings the biggest smiles to our faces & we hope they bring happiness to your day, too!
