real wedding shenanigans: alanna & david

Alanna and David were married at the Palos Verdes Golf Course situated on the stunning Palos Verdes Peninsula. Their ceremony was held in the outdoor wedding garden under a peoni, rose, and lily-adorned archway overlooking lush green fairways and ponds. Rose petals, mixed floral clusters, and hand made wooden signage lined the pathway for the stunning bride to meet her handsome husband-to-be. Guests mingled over cocktails and enjoyed gorgeous views from the patio. The escort cards were CDs of the bride and groom’s favorite music. These cards were beautifully hand painted in shades of aqua and gold serving as a lovely musical keepsake for guests. The reception was held in the Spanish style clubhouse with panoramic views of the ocean and city hillsides. Illuminated LOVE and XOXO marquee letters accompanied by bright florals, and glowing gold-trimmed geo vases with navy candles were placed throughout the foyer. The dining space consisted of gorgeous inspirations of navy, aqua and gold. Detailed tablescapes of navy sequins linens, fine gold flatware, glass and gold accented plate chargers, aqua mercury votives, framed hand written love-inspired quotes, unique Brazilian agate table numbers, gold chiavari chairs, and farmhouse tables achieved an incredible chic setting complimented by eye-appealing backdrops of Palos Verdes. Guests savored the lavish array of food stations, delicious eats, wedding cake and signature ice cream sandwiches and soda float bar from Coolhaus Ice Cream Truck. After a memorable evening of celebration and dancing, the bride and groom’s guests gave them a stylish send off under a canopy of bright flickering sparklers as they were whisked away into the night in a beautiful vintage Rolls Royce. Congratulations Alanna and David!
