On a warm Malibu evening in April, just the ocean and a handful of their closest friends and family bared witnessed to two of the most charming humans professing their forever love for each other – and then partied the night away at the idyllic Calamigos Ranch to sounds of Spanish guitar and the couples favorite tunes.

We styled the beach seating with cozy blankets and throws in blushes and subtle grey tones…the alter a simple & sweet design of eight custom sewn silk flags that billowed in the salty beach air. The aisle was made from a creamy white burlap runner, lined with driftwood and warn stones, perfect for the couples barefoot and sandal clad guests to wander down.

We LOVED this dining and reception set up we got to work with at the Calamigos Ranch...a dreamy, long wood table, perfect for the couple’s 35 closest acquaintances to enjoy dinner at – paired with a dark wood table that we styled the tasty treats for the end of the evening at. We opted out of utilizing any florals and stuck purely to botanical greens and rose gold spray painted pineapples to set the mood for this Malibu appropriate celebration.
