For ALL Couples Getting Married

Everything about this west coast wedding inspiration at the Grand Pacific Palisades Resort is nothing short of magical. From the casual seaside setting to the perfect golden hour glow captured by O’Ryan Empire Photography, we’re totally smitten by this entire shoot. So much so, that we can easily spend the entire day gazing over each and every geometric detail. Let’s just take note of the gold sequin table runner, geometric vases paired with the wood detailing of the table and chairs. GORGEOUS!!! It’s laid back elegance at its very best and this dessert bar is an absolute must-see! After all, it includes the prettiest two-tiered succulent cake with gold brush strokes, gold geometric cookies, mini naked cakes, French macs and more. See how this creative team  brought these wedding dreams to life with the help of Zperfect Party and Abbey Madison (the event coordinator at the Grand Pacific Palisades Resort) below.

From O’Ryan Empire Photography…The inspiration for this shoot was “California laid back” at a beach resort with succulents, thistle, and geometric shapes. The color palette was green, blush, and lavender with touches of gold.

This is a fabulous location for brides looking for an outdoor indoor Southern California wedding with spectacular Ocean views. And to have Karl Strauss, a leading craft beer house as their catering partner another plus to this dynamic Grand Pacific Palisades venue. In the summer months, couples even benefit from a fireworks spectacular at nearby Legoland California!!! We were thrilled to style this photo shoot!

Atop the bluff overlooking the The Pacific Ocean sits the gorgeous Grand Pacific Palisades. The resort itself is a beautiful backdrop and Pat Letsos, event planner at Zperfect Party had a very specific vision in mind and executed it magnificently. Pat gathered her creative team together and we went to work. Personally, I love creating dessert bars that are not only amazing to look at, but that taste incredible too. It must have the WOW factor in every aspect! And this dessert bar does not disappoint. The mini naked “violet velvet” cakes were decorated with sprigs of lavender and and gold geometric shapes. Laid-back California perfection!
