Ahhh Laguna Beach, not only my favorite place in all of California, but also the entire USA. Weather that is to die for, sea salt in the air, waves crashing, tons of adorable shops. Now picture this: The most important day of you life right on the beach. You and your lover sun kissed, toes in the sand, breeze blowing through your hair, and back lit by the oceans sun. I call that a SoCal dream wedding! This dream wedding was made into a reality during my last trip to California because I had the opportunity to participate in this styled wedding that was stunning to say the least. Is it your dream to have a Socal wedding, right in the middle of Laguna Beach? If you just screamed “Yes!”, then keep reading below for some tips on how to create the perfect Laguna Beach wedding day.
Trying to create your California dream wedding? The Inn at Laguna is the place to start! The Inn at Laguna is located right on Laguna Beach, with rooftop views of the ocean and the city that are the backdrop of the wedding day. With beautiful hues of white and terra-cotta, this Inn is simple and elegant. Because the Inn is located right on the beach, this gives you the ability to combine all the beach wedding vibes with a flare of elegance. Also, the photo location options are endless at the Inn. Not only are there countless spots at the Inn itself, but the beach is just a walk away. So, what are you waiting for?! Lets go frolic around Laguna Beach together at the Inn at Laguna!
Of course, what is a styled shoot without an amazing planner and designer?! A Beautiful Theme was the creator of this beautiful California wedding day and I can not be any more impressed with every last detail of this shoot. The color scheme consisted of all the beautiful warm hued pastels you can think of, as well as lots of gold and wicker accents. All the details incorporated, from the dress, to the florals (which A Beautiful Theme provided themselves!), to the venue, every aspect of it just screamed beach wedding. A. Beautiful theme could not have done any better with the designing and planning!
THE HAIR AND MAKEUP
Devon Duff created the hair and makeup looks for the shoot and it was absolutely STUNNING. The makeup look was light, dewy, and exactly how you would expect someone to look on the day of their beach wedding. The hair was pulled back into a beautiful low bun, that helped to bring more attention to our gorgeous brides face. Devon Duff did a beautiful job at creating THE PERFECT bridal look.
One of my favorite details of the day was the wedding dress. The dress was by Eleanors Bridal and really pulled everything together. This backless dress had long, loose, and sheer sleeves and a beautiful flowy train that added a huge ethereal vibe. I mean who doesn’t want to look like a beach goddess on their wedding day!? I am absolutely obsessed with this dress!
The wedding cake was made by Cakes by Ky. This cake could not have fit the entire theme any better. The cake itself was blush pink, minimalistic, with a floral arrangement right on the middle. I loved how this cake fit perfectly into the vibe of this airy styled shoot.
I could not have asked for anything better for a beautiful Laguna Beach wedding. The planning was incredible down to every last detail. From the venue and the florals, to the hair, makeup, and dress, and to the cake, these was not one aspect that was anything less than gorgeous! So, who’s ready to have their socal dream wedding?!
