Inspired by the beautiful Amalfi Coast this creative team led by Southern California wedding photographer MALLORY DAWN found an intimate location in Palos Verdes, which was reminiscent of the famous spot in Italy and served as the backdrop. With stunning views it's the perfect place for a romantic elopement and somewhere meaningful vows can be exchanged. The design by AMORETTE EVENTS was kept simple yet sophisticated, with pastel blues, soft textures, and Italian vibes. The bride wore a stunning white gown with a dramatic cape designed by AMANDA JAMES and KOHNUR PREMIER BEAUTY left her hair in soft waves and weaved in a delicate hairpiece from the VEILED BEAUTY to complement the cape.
Mallory tells us more... "Our groom wore a blue tux from FRIAR TUX to accentuate the main colour from our desired palette. We wanted to make sure all of the elements were centered around the beautiful view. For the ceremony scene, SWEET SALVAGE RENTALS provided a modest, wooden altar table, adorned with romantic florals from BLOOM THEORY as well as a simple candelabrum. After the ceremony, our couple shared an intimate meal in celebration of their nuptials. Our wooden table was angled alongside the cliff for an expansive view of the coast. It was adorned with an organic silk runner from TONO & CO. in the perfect shade of dusty blue to complement the rolling waves below. Charm of BLOOM THEORY created an asymmetrical centerpiece filled with lush, muted florals, which we paired with an assortment of fruits to pay tribute to the Amalfi Coast's rich vegetation. Our table setting featured an intricate, Italian styled plate that lay as the backdrop to a clean and simple menu and name card, created by the ever so talented OLIVE SAINT LILY. Along with the place settings, she also designed a gorgeous invitation suite with a detailed envelope liner and delicate calligraphy."
