About the Dress

From the Bride: I had to find something off the rack especially with only 4 months to plan. I got my dress at a great consignment shop in LA called Glamour Closet where I got a beautiful polka dot silk chiffon dress by Melissa Sweet. This is a great way to get designer dress for half the price that’s never been worn. It had to be altered but one great tip for new brides is to ask if your seamstress can make your veil. It’s usually cheaper and you can come up with something custom like I did.

About the Event Designer

I found Natalie Good with A Good Affair through a friend who used her for her beautiful wedding planning skills and she found me great deals. She said planning a wedding in 4 months was possible so we tackled it together. She was able to get me a dream venue at the St. Regis Monarch Beach for practically half the price because it was off-season and short booking. We then came up with the theme of Vintage Moroccan Wedding and we were able to put it all together with some great vendors such as Darla Marie Designs, Found Rentals, and Simply Sweet Cakery.

Jade glass plates were hand painted and used as the table numbers. Such a pretty and elegant idea …right?

About the Photographer

I had loved Derrek Sullivan with Flora + Fauna since seeing his pictures of my friend’s wedding as a second shooter. I had no clue he was based out of Florida and thought it would be to expensive to have him fly to California to shoot my wedding. But like I said, it doesn’t hurt to ask. He was willing to fly out and he even quoted me a reasonable price. The images are beautiful and I’m so thankful I inquired about him coming.

Florals played a major role in this one as we featured of all our favorite Summer blooms. The custom white table was the perfect backdrop for our eclectic tablescape the featured a variety of colors, patterns, and textures. The absolute star of this show as the bright pink, all floral cap that our stunning model wore with perfection. It was the perfect accessory to the hi-lo Mori Lee gown that gives bridal fashion a fun Summer twist
