Jeannie is a lovely person, attentive and supportive. As soon as I got in touch with her she was there ready to share all her wide experience with us. 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.”

Parasols on your wedding day

Everyday I meet more and more couples that decide to celebrate the wedding ceremony outdoors, in a garden or even the beach.  Warm Summer days are the best for this but of course your guests might suffer from the heat, so why not provide them with lovely parasols? You can find all sorts of styles from the more elaborate vintage style, to simple wicker ones, or even with a pagoda shape.  There are places where you can buy them or even rent them out for the day. They also make nice wedding favors for your guests. You can add your own personal touch to them like your initials.  In pale colours or even matching your wedding colours they look great in the wedding photographs, and the bride and groom and their friends can have lovely pictures taken of them with the parasols.

Today I am going to show you some images that look really nice. Hope you like them!
