Based in Southern California, although she can work anywhere around the world, we thought it would be a great idea if she gave us an insight into weddings by the sea, as they are so popular there. I now leave you with some lovely photos of her recent work and with some kind words on her behalf where she talks about weddings in Southern California. Thanks a lot Jeannie for sharing your work with us !!

“As wedding and event planners in Southern California, we are fortunate to have beautiful luxury resorts so close to the Pacific Ocean.  About half the weddings we plan annually are not local residents, as many travel from far away for these breath taking spots.  Many of our clients are from Asia, Europe and many states within the US that have no surrounding water.  I think sometimes I take for granted the glorious sunsets we have daily. I personally don’t like that close to the water but when I get a chance to see a sunset, I do try to stop and stare!

We are extremely lucky with great year round weather, little rain and humidity provides for wedding ceremonies to take place out doors and even dinner under the stars in the summer months.  Popular coastal cities are Malibu, Santa Monica, Huntington Beach and Laguna Beach, where one can find many hotels and resorts.  With such beautiful backdrops, many brides choose lighter color palettes for their wedding. Any neutral tones work wonderfully with an outdoor setting. You can have a modern clean beach themed wedding or art déco garden wedding with hedges.  The Pacific Ocean is a blank canvas and one that I don’t see going out of trend.”

A rainy wedding day can be just as beautiful as any other day. You just have to choose a nice umbrella for yourselves and ask your guests to bring along an umbrella in the colours or designs you decide. Here are some ideas to make the most of a rainy day. Hope you like them !

Why not choose stripes or dots, to give your wedding a chic feel about it.

Wedding bouquets: Teresa de la Pisa

Teresa is a well known fashion designer. Her friends that know her since she was a child, always comment she was fascinated with corals. One day she started experimenting with tin, corals and sea urchins and turned sculpture into her profession. All her work is inspired by nature, as Teresa herself comments ” nature is an ever ending source of inspiration, ideas, sensations, colours and textures for her pieces of art”. A happy and vitalist woman she thoroughly enjoys the process of creation often wondering where it will lead her to. The important thing as she says “is that the end result brings happiness and joy”.

What has this designer got to do with weddings? She produces wonderful sculptures in the shape of wedding bouquets, from metal leaves to sea urchins, corals, and even wood. Once the wedding is over you just need to take your wedding bouquet to her, and Teresa will turn it into an incredible sculpture that you can keep as a fond memory of your wedding in your home. Don´t you agree this is a wonderful idea?
