This intimate and romantic affair of no more than 60 attendees took place at the breathtaking L’Auberge Del Mar.  Together with the bride, the very talented Alison Patt, of L’Auberge Del Mar, created a sophisticated and unique event with room for a ceremony, reception and lounge area.  Jessica carried a beautiful and organic inspired bouquet of creamy ivory china mums, fragrant peonies, ranunculus, fluffy stock, roses, tulips, lisianthus and silver toned dusty miller.  Her bridesmaid carried a soft yellow and ivory bouquet create from stock, roses, lisianthus, ranunculus, billy balls and dusty miller leaves.

The groom, Michael, wore a textured and fun boutonniere of dusty miller, berzilia, tulips, spray roses and a crespedia pod.

Set atop the Pacific terrace with a gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean, the ceremony took place under our beautiful deep wood stained chuppah, delicately draped across the top and two sides to not block any of the outstanding view.  Floating orchid and crystal strands dripped from the two canopy sides, complimenting the submerged orchid aisle decor.  Fresh soft yellow lemons accented the aisle and were placed along the bar and escort card tables.  A whimsical swirling formation ran the length of the aisle.

The flower girl held an adorable floral wand.  The unique and sophisticated reception was created in soft ivory, grey, and yellow tones.  Centerpieces were created in vintage distressed ivory frames, containing  pave of china mums, hydrangea, dusty miller, tulips and spray roses.  Frames were placed down the length of the single long banquet table atop a clean mirrored runner, amplifying the glowing candlelight from the mercury glass votives and tall trios.

The lounge area was studded with belly bars and cocktail rounds topped with shaped glass vases and floating ivory blooms accented by lemons.  The dessert table was topped with a lovely array of sweets, set up and prepared by Alison Patt, of L’Auberge Del Mar.  We accented the table with submerged lemons placed inside footed cylinder vases.

As the sun went down, the romance was amplified by the numerous candles placed along the table and the fun market lighting stretched across the terrace.  All of the beauty was captured flawlessly by Joshua Aull Photography– thanks for the images!!!
