Summer & Derek’s Mod Glamorous Wedding

A glam celebration with touches of ’40s and ’50s style

Summer and Derek’s wedding at the Wayfarer’s Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, was an elegant mix of modern style and old-school glamour. The palette of deep magentas and violets perfectly complemented the lacy, vintage-style wedding dress by Jim Hjelm and bridesmaids dresses by After Six. White phalaenopsis orchids, white ostrich feathers, and crystals finished off the stylish look of the day. These pics were taken by our uber-talented dear friend Laura Grier of Beautiful Day Photography. <!–more–>

All it takes to turn these groomsmen into cool cats is some mod checkered socks and shades.
