Along the Coast of Orange County, California is the Surf and Sand Resort of Laguna Beach. This beachfront wedding venue is the perfect spot for a dreamy outdoor ceremony that overlooks the ocean. Cory and Melody absolutely love the ocean, and quickly fell in love with this venue for that very reason! With just under two months to plan their entire wedding, this amazing couple pulled everything together for an elegant beach inspired celebration. Their color palette of blues, gold, white, and pink carried the beach theme throughout every detail of their wedding day. From the baby blue bridesmaid gowns to the pink and white floral arrangements by BEL Events, and all of the gold decor accents, this spring wedding seemed very well thought out despite the limited time to plan. Check out more details from these snaps brought to us by Three16 Photography. Enjoy!
We’re All About the Details!
Melody was dressed in a sweetheart lace gown with a flowing tulle bottom from Mary Me Bridal, while her groom wore a navy suit with a white tie. They exchanged vows in the sunny outdoor terrace, with a panoramic ocean backdrop. For the reception, the party continued in one of the resort’s gorgeous ballrooms. BEL Events not only crafted the beautiful floral arrangements for the day, but also contributed the decor as well. Extreme DJs provided the music for the evening as the couple and their closest friends and family danced the night away. The textured yet smooth three-tiered cake from It’s All About The Cake was accented with a delicate golden “love” topper, and was a perfect addition to the delicious catering from Surf and Sand. All of the details of this chic coastal resort wedding were captured by the team at Three16 Photography.
Take this Advice
Make sure to spend intentional time with each other throughout the planning process- separate from making decisions about wedding day! Also, the couple loved having an indoor reception so that there were no noise restrictions/ restrictions on how late the party could go. ~Jerrick O’Connor/Photographer
