We’re wishing to take a break from this cold weather and escape to the sunny coast. Today’s coastal wedding inspiration shoot, held in California at the Portofino Hotel, couldn’t have come at a better time.
Lush leaves added a tropical touch to the ceremony arch and the reception tables inside the hotel, which were set with wood chargers and cobalt blue ink spotted plates that mirrored the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean just off the shore of Redondo Beach. They popped perfectly on our linen. Also inspired by the beach were the use of shells as escort cards with hand lettering that put a personalized touch on each place setting.
