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.”

Some lovely ways of decorating the garden on your wedding day

If you are thinking about celebrating your wedding outdoors, here are some ideas about how to enhance the natural beauty of the garden or yard.

Mother nature offers us lots of beautiful and interesting corners that we can make even more attractive with simply arranging some nice flowers in unusual containers, hanging lights and candles around or even placing wooden sign posts in an unusual and whimsical place in the garden, as you can see in this photo.

Trees are a source of inspiration. You can make them really stand out just by hanging lights, paper lanterns, pom pons or flowers in jars. Don´t forget to use things like tree trunks, old wooden benches or even bales of straw to arrange desserts, drinks, wedding favors etc.  In these photos you will find some lovely ideas !

An unusual hole in the wall, some rocks …. can be the ideal place for a nice, bright flower arrangement. I like the idea in this photo of arranging bales of straw for your guests to sit on, if you add cushions and patchwork quilts the wedding ceremony can look very colorful and pretty.

Remember that flower arches, ivory climbing up a tree or original flower pots here and there, will make the garden a really interesting place that your guests will never forget. Just let your imagination fly ! Nature and small decoration details will make all the rest !

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!

Wedding dresses by designer Angel Sanchez

Angel Sanchez is one of the most prestigious wedding dresses designers. You can admire his creations in glamourous  fashion parades all over the world. What I like about him is that  he designs thinking of a modern bride but without loosing that elegant touch of the great classics.

His designs favour womens´silhouette, with astonishing geometrical cuts and a romantic flair of embroidered flowers, laces….and the use of enchanting and vaporous materials such as tulle (more and more the fashion these days).

I leave you with some of my favourite dresses.  See what you think about them.
