Allison and Paul worked with Canvas & Canopy Events and Isari Flower Studio + Event Design to transform the oceanfront L'Auberge Del Mar into a vintage English garden for their Big Day. Inspired by Allison's favorite classic novel, The Secret Garden, along with notes of Jane Austen and a touch of Southern California boho style, they used a mix of colors and patterns with personalized details to create an incredibly chic outdoor wedding.
The bridal fashions set the tone for the wedding's vintage inspired style. Allison wore a lace cap-sleeved Claire Pettibone gown with beautiful jeweled details, complemented stylishly with a headpiece from Renee Pawele Bride. Bridesmaids wore custom chiffon tiered skirts by D’ marie Bridal Couture along with pearl strand necklaces. Lucky To Be In Loved designed perfect wedding day stationery, using an eclectic variety of detailed floral motifs on menu cards and table numbers, and a gorgeous hand-painted wedding sign that greeted guests at the oceanfront ceremony. White linens and chairs were the right choice for reception tables, layered with colorful flower arrangements in antique vases, and pretty vintage style patterned napkins and dishes. The reception was complete with a Groom's Corner that featured vintage golf accessories, a rustic hutch for a dessert display, and cocktail napkins personalized with fun facts about the couple. John Schnack captured the beautiful day.
