Lemon Sunshine: Megan & Justin’s Yellow Wedding

A Newport Beach wedding filled with sunny joy and smiles

When I spotted Megan and Justin’s sweet and sunny wedding on OneWed, it instantly made me smile. Everything about this adorable young couple and their wedding just screams *fun*! From the bright and whimsical lemon blossom bouquets to the sunny textile prints of the tablecloths, this is a feel-good party with charm to spare. <!–more–> Talented up-and-coming photo Alicia Danielle captured every detail.




The bridesmaids wore matching handmade hair accessories — they’re just like the brooch on the sash of Megan’s dress!


Justin’s super-cool, unique black wedding band is made of Tungsten, a metal that’s stronger than gold or platinum. Tungsten mining also has less environmental impact than gold or silver mining.


Megan’s dress proves that modest can be fabulous! LDS weddings call for somewhat conservative attire, and Megan rocks a sweet short-sleeved design that’s fresh, modern, and beautiful.


This is some of the most eco-friendly bridesmaids attire I’ve seen in a while. Are the dresses made of bamboo? Are they vintage? Nope. But those flattering little black dresses, cute gray sweaters, and comfy black flats are absolute wardrobe staples, which means that that these bridesmaids will *really* wear them again and again. And one of the most Earth-friendly things you can do is to extend the lifecycle of all of the products you buy — it reduces your consumption and your overall carbon footprint.




The ceremony was held in Yorba Linda, followed by a reception at a private home in Newport Beach. And did we mention the scenery??





Notice how the circles in the tablecloth match the whimsical cake design, which echoes the round shape of the lemon slices in the vase. Coordinating shapes and colors this way gives the whole wedding an effortlessly put-together vibe.


Thanks again to Alicia Danielle for sending me these pics on short notice and being such a wonderful photographer and great sport!

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–>

{*What’s Wedding Porn Wednesday?}


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.



The ceremony and reception were held in a private residence at the top of a mountain in Malibu, California. Gorgeous!


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.


Charlie and his groomsmen prep for the wedding. Don’t they look like a bunch of movie stars? Move over Clooney, I’ve discovered the new cast for Ocean’s 14.
