Sam and Ashley were married on a sunny Malibu day and every little detail was beautiful. With it’s leafy greens, surf boards, and breathtaking sunsets, who wouldn’t want to get married here?
We’ll meet Katie Edwards Photo in the West Lake Village Inn bridal suite to start the day with ladies in the floral lace lined robes from LeRose, hair by Tonia Day and makeup by Angie Martinez from Blushington. Sam looked stunning with long blonde curls, pulled half back with a few falling down to frame her face. Her mother helped her into her Martina Liana dress from Panache Bridal in Beverly Hills with modern lace, a dramatic train, and romantic sleeves.
Ashley popped champagne with her besties after opening a present from her soon to be wifey, a Giving Key. We checked out this website and it’s SO awesome. What an incredible gift to give a loved one. We may or may not be buying a few after we finish this blog post! But first, let’s talk about Ashley’s outfit. Which was dynamite. We’re obsessed with her custom The Royals Paris white suit and gold necklace.
The first look. Was so perfect and adorable. Ashley’s reaction when she sees Sam for the first time was priceless. The location couldn’t have been more epic, a long pathway with arches of greenery. After a few photos, these two got handed their colorful bouquets by Shindig Chic, packed full of soft peach, white and blush florals and greenery. These colors are the perfect accent to ocean blue!
Afterwards, Sam and Ashley took pictures in front of the inn’s iconic bright orange walls and then joined family and wedding party for group photos on the lawn. The ladies wore Show Me Your Mumu in Dusty Blush Crisp and the guys wore light grey from The Black Tux.
It doesn’t get much better than Malibu West Beach Club‘s ocean view so close you’ve got beach access. A wooden arbor framed the Pacific Ocean and was decorated with colorful flowers and greenery. These pretty blooms also made their way to mercury bud vases on the welcome table. The guestbook was message in a bottle which we think is such a cute way to continue enjoying wedding memories for years to come!! We’re sure every now and then they grab one and reveal it’s best wishes and excitement for their marriage.
From the blush ribbons on the chairs blowing in the sea breeze to the colorful turquoise acrylic signs, Details Darling knew exactly how to bring the magic of the ocean into each and every wedding detail. The Red Fiddler played as Ashley walked down the aisle with her father. Then she stood proudly, smiling from ear to ear when she saw Sam. A first kiss (of many to come that evening) and rose petal celebration finished off what we’re sure was a pretty special ceremony.
For sunset, the couple went to the beach and walked hand in hand, barefoot on the sand. We love that their guests got to watch their first moments alone as newlyweds from cocktail hour on the deck above.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any more beautiful. You see the reception space. The gold rimmed glass chargers were topped with colorful menus and blush linen napkins. The glassware was iridescent and brought out the pops of color in floral centerpieces. Tiny seashells and unique glass votives were sprinkled about. And each bread plate had a piece of sea glass with the guest’s name written in gold. Just an absolute dream combination of rentals from Party Pleasers. The head table had a white linen backdrop with pops of twinkle lights.
After a romantic first dance on the same deck where they said I Do, Sam and Ashley headed inside for toasts, dinner by DJ’s Catering, and lots of dancing to beats by Ben Goldsmith. Their show-stopping four tier wedding cake from Sweet and Saucy Shop was surrounded by delicious desserts and after enjoying their first bite the couple kissed under a sign that read Gimmie Some Sugar.
We couldn’t be more happy for Sam and Ashley and their Malibu beach wedding vision was seriously stunning when it came to life. We wish you both a lifetime of moments that made you as happy as you were during your first look, beautiful beach sunsets, and a favorite jean jacket that gets better with time.
