The Couple: Rebecca and Dan
The Wedding: 7.09.11 – Terranea Resort – Palos Verdes, CA
What three adjectives best describe your wedding day? Intimate, fun and unforgettable
Was there a decor theme that ran through your wedding? What was the inspiration for that particular idea and how did it reflect you as a couple? I love all things Anthropologie, which inspired me to create a warm, natural and charming setting for our wedding. As a couple, we love to host people at our home and we always try to provide a warm and cozy environment for our guests. Thats how we wanted our wedding to feel at our wedding too.
What were some of the different ways you used decor elements to create the beautiful, cohesive event you were envisioning? I wanted my wedding to be both timeless and charming. My wedding dress was an elegant, yet fashion forward Carolina Herrera gown. I dressed my bridesmaids in bright, sunny dresses from Anthropologie. Also, I adored my florist, Susan from Peony and Plum, and her arrangements! I chose flowers and centerpieces that were soft and elegant, but still made a statement.
Where did you choose to hold your wedding, and how did the location influence your decor decisions? We chose Terranea Resort for its stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. The location provided the perfect backdrop for a charming and rustic, yet elegant wedding, and we centered our decor decisions around that theme.
