After spending the last few years living in the groom's native UK, Jessica and James decided to tie the knot in the bride's home country of the USA. Couture Events helped make this international couple's dream destination wedding a reality at La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla, California. With bright colors and touches of citrus, this beautiful event showed the Californian coast at it's finest.

From Couture Events:Bright and beautiful, this couple wanted a wedding filled with color. We used citrus (peaches, oranges, lemons), florals and succulents to bring their vision to life. Our favorite details included the moss and succulent escort card wall glowing with candles and the citrus we used in and around the arrangements and down the aisle to create a fresh style and look. Another favorite was the ombre macaroon favors — we love the idea of doing a favor that your guests can eat and enjoy, that is colorful and fun and adds a beautiful aesthetic to the tablescape.
