The last couple weeks have been so much fun! We are prepping for a super gorgeous wedding in Palos Verdes (more to come on that one), and had one of the most beautiful weddings ever last weekend.

Words of wisdom. It is so easy to get caught up in the stress, but just remember that there are always better things waiting.

Grand del Mar Wedding

Lauren and Nick… I dont even know where to start with these two. I love them! I can’t even put how perfect this couple is for each other into words. I actually have taken a long time to post it, because words were never enough. Not just the design, but also the couple will always be one of my favorites. Lauren and Nick wanted their wedding to have a very classic, glamourous feel. We used creams, ultra pale pinks, black and gold to create a timeless and dramatic feel for their wedding.

The Capella Chapel at The Grand del Mar is incredible! Doesn’t it look like something right out of Italy.

The couple included old family pictures of generations past and present so that guests could see the family histories as they walked into the ceremony.

The escort card table was adorned with strips of lace, loose blooms and gorgeous hand written cards.

The lounge had white leather tufted furniture (with rhinestones in the tufts!!) and mirrored coffee and side tables with soft blush floral accents. All of the accent pillows were customized with the couples monogram and motif.

JL Designs nailed the floral design. Lush ruffly blooms were in silk and lace wrapped boxes and embellished with jewel appliqués.
