Luxury Destination Wedding Laguna Beach, Surf and Sand Resort
When a 101 of your favorite people travel far and away to celebrate your destination wedding weekend with you!A wedding inspired by the sea and a blush and gold palette.
The Surf and Sand Resort was the perfect place for Jessica and Lee to celebrate their wedding day with their family and friends. Inspired by the sea and a blush and gold palette, the details, accompanied by the spectacular view of the ocean, made for a beautiful oceanside wedding.
Jessica and Lee and the majority of their family and guests traveled from Kansas City for the wedding. But as a young girl, Jessica lived in Newport Beach. Her fond memories of that time inspired her to dream up a Southern California beach wedding. With the help of Ashley and her team at Agape Planning this beautiful wedding became a reality and the end result is magical.
Highlighting the ceremony was a unity tradition and for Jessica and Lee it was a blend of two unique wines. The story began a year earlier in Northern California’s wine country. A romantic getaway for two and where Lee popped the question! While enjoying the wineries, Jessica and Lee had a chance to each make (and title) their own wine. Forward to the wedding day, during the ceremony the couple invited their families to join them at the altar for the first uncorking and blending both wines to make one, as a symbol of two families coming together. It was a great moment, as no one knew for certain what the wines would taste like. Everyone laughed and delighted in the fact that the blended wines actually tasted great!
The wedding cake was absolutely gorgeous and the display design was a personal favorite. The white cake with a pop of pink and green from the fresh roses, set next to vintage black and white wedding portraits that belonged to their grandparents was perfection. The groom was also very close to both of his grandfather’s. He wanted to commemorate them in a meaningful way and decided to wear his maternal grandfather’s wrist watch and his paternal grandfather’s lovingly worn, tiny bible tucked away in his breast pocket all day.
The reception design was modern and luxurious and featured a showcase white dance floor. But the focal point was the sweetheart table. Draped with a rose gold sequined linen and adorned by large sea glass colored vases and nautical inspired lanterns. But, as if this wasn’t enough beauty, add a wow factor, rustic wood, succulent wall backdrop!
The couple’s grand entrance dance required a dress change! An incredible, sure footed, acrobatic “Dancing with the Stars” kind of moves. That had their guests out of their seats and cheering! So much fun!
During the planning process Jessica asked us about the idea of photographing a day-after wedding session on the beach. Trashing the dress a bit. But after she found her dreamy, blush pink gown by Lazaro she just couldn’t go through with it and after seeing her dress, it was obvious why!
Congratulations, Jessica & Lee!
