Meghan and Michael planned a best of the best La Jolla wedding! Since they were both beach kids, being raised in La Jolla and now living there again, they “had” to get married on the sand. Well, at least Michael had to get married on the sand and Meghan was marrying him so, by default, they were planning a sand ceremony! The best place for a wedding on the beach in La Jolla is the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club. Meghan and Michael worked with the Adorations floral team to plan a beautiful blush pink, ivory, and beach wood decor. Meghan arrayed her bridesmaids in navy and the gentlemen in navy sport coats and khaki pants to give the event a bit of a beachy-nautical feel. The ring bearers were even clad in mini-sear suckers a perfect compliment to the look!
For the ceremony, Adorations used a combination of the blush pinks and ivories with beechwood to continue with the nautical motif. The look was elegant but reflected a more casual, beachy feel. The bridesmaids were also all in flat sandals for the ceremony which fit the look perfectly. We love the bottom photo of the entire wedding party down at La Jolla Shores! One of our new favorite photos!
Once inside the reception, it was pure elegance. Meghan used the same blush pink and ivory scheme and then added gold accents to fit with the look of the Country Club. The reception was a beautiful contrast in tone to the beach ceremony. Candles lined the beams and filled the tables to create romance and drama. Adorations added a few white starfish into half the centerpieces to sprinkle in the beach motif but kept the look very elegant and much more formal. It was a perfect balance! Cocktails started in the Sunset Room and then the guests were invited into the Living Room for a formal, sit down dinner.
Once dinner and toasts were complete, the real party began! The crowd danced to the Dirty Birds until midnight with the dance floor full the entire time! Meghan also created a custom cigar display on the terrace with monogrammed labels that the gentlemen definitely enjoyed. It was a wonderful affair!
