Ocean Institute Wedding - Dana Point

Tim and Vivienne's wedding was held the weekend before Thanksgiving, this inspired the whole concept of a "modern feast" with long tables lined with fresh garland and lots of candles for the reception. Vivienne's style was simplistic, romantic, with neutral colors and tones. I loved this wedding and the soft color palette along with the intimate reception. The Ocean Institute in Dana Point was the perfect setting with its clean industrial lines, with a touch of rustic elegance in the main room. We incorporated greenery, wooden boxes, soft florals, and copper wire name cards into the table design. Gianna of Chic Celebrations always does such an amazing job of pulling her clients' vision and style together for a perfectly designed event. 

This wedding was also featured in Cottage Hill Magazine, please visit here to view some of the images...

Vivienne's bridal bouquet was one of my favorites, lush and full with cascading greenery and sprigs of olive and jasmine vine along with acacia to add texture. And the long champagne ribbon tails were the perfect finishing touch.  

Her bridesmaids wore soft lavender and blush dresses. They carried smaller versions of Vivienne's bouquet with a more tailored aesthetic. 

 Long garlands of fresh bay leaf, salal tip and olive were placed down the center of the long tables, and for a femme touch to the more masculine design, we tucked fresh white and blush pink florals into the garlands. 

 The addition of dark stained wood and copper name settings added a rustic touch to the clean design of the guest tables. We also added a sprig of fresh greenery to each napkin.
