stacey and andrew - the cottage, san clemente

stacey and andrew were married at an ocean front park in san clemente and held their reception at the cottage (part of san clemente's state parks). for those with a small enough guest count (less than 150), the cottage is a fantastic venue full of charm...and its got killer ocean views! how can you beat that?!

this wedding was shot by one of my all time FAVORITE photographers, amelia lyon...we started our wedding industry careers around the same time so i feel like we have watched each other grow so much over the last 4 years...thank you amelia for being so AMAZING at what you do! i am so proud of what you have done since we first met!



the bridal bouquet was made up of shades of white and cream peonies, roses and ranunculas...

the bride's gown was accented with a blush sash and she wore pale pink heels...

the bridesmaids' bouquets were made up of pale pink garden roses, antique pink sahara roses, parrot tulips and blush astilbe...

a chocolate brown monkey tail and a few manzanita twigs accented the groom's white ranuncula boutonniere...


the ceremony area was flanked by two large brown ceramic vases filled with chocolate manzanita branches, mood moss and white and pink cymbidium orchid blooms (some attached with hanging satin ribbon)...



my favorite photo of the day...


placecards were hung from more manzanita branches using chocolate satin ribbon...


tables were set family style and the florals were kept really clean with simple glass vases filled with water and one type of white spring flower (peonies, hydrangea, tulips, mini calas, garden roses, ranunculas, sweet peas, hyacinth, etc.)...

we kept the vases a little on the eclectic side by mixing square and rectangular vases with cylinders, footed vases and bulbed vases.
