Julie & Michael

July 27

Rancho Palos Verdes, California


Q&A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The spectacular view of the ocean from the ceremony site. There is a small outdoor amphitheater that overlooks the ocean and it was a perfect size and setting for our ceremony. There is also a great indoor/outdoor reception area on site that made it an easy transition into the cocktail hour.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

My bouquet turned out beautifully, the succulents and poppies were my favorite additions to the bouquet. Our table centerpieces were modern succulent planters so they could be enjoyed much longer than a typical floral centerpiece. Lastly, our sweetheart table was cocktail height so we had a great view of all of our guests.

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

Work with great vendors. They can make your experience easier and less stressful. It is also a good idea to have a planner there for the day of to keep things organized and on schedule.

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

We read our own vows during the ceremony and it added a personal touch that made our day extra special.
