Charles & Rachel’s Autumn Mountaintop Wedding

The hills are alive with Fall’s richest colors at this warm vintage-inspired celebration

Rachel and Charles knew what they wanted: A warm, intimate wedding that would welcome their family and friends as well as the beginning of Autumn in the mountains of Malibu. The couple planned every detail themselves, including designing their own invitations, and drew on the natural beauty of their location for inspiration. The pics are by the talented Laura Grier of Beautiful Day Photography, who never ceases to amaze us with her keen eye for detail, color, and composition. <!–more–>

Charles and Rachel chose vintage wedding rings. Look how lovely and delicate Rachel’s pave diamond band is! Oh, and the shoes? Blahnik. Manolo Blahnik.

Rachel wore her grandmother’s pearl choker as her “something old”, her mother’s pearl bracelet as her “something borrowed”, and a stunning vintage-inspired Vera Wang wedding dress. Below, the bride gets a kiss for good luck from a beloved guest.
