Congratulations are in order! We’re so excited to share that our dreamy Santa Monica wedding at Shutters On The Beach has been featured on Grace Ormonde! Keep scrolling to see these amazing photos from Dmitri Shumanev Production and an excerpt from the feature. Thank you to Veronique Events for planning and designing this ultimate destination wedding for Monica and Dustin.
Ever since she was a little girl, Monica knew she wanted to have a beach wedding. When the wedding planning process began, Florida was tossed around as a potential location; but ultimately, California made the most sense, as Austin’s family lives there and it’s where he grew up. Soon, a destination wedding at Shutters On the Beach in Santa Monica was in the works.
The couple’s dreamy Santa Monica wedding unfolded just as they’d hoped, culminating in a beachy, romantic, light, bright, and airy wedding celebration. Veronique referred to the day as having a “European yacht style” type of vibe, which was fitting since the couple loves being out on the water. The ambiance at Shutters On the Beach was made even more perfect by a few passing sailboats in the background, and seagulls flying overhead.
The color palette consisted of soft pastels, along with gold accents for a timeless touch of glamour. For the flowers, the couple wanted their wedding florals to resemble a “beautifully wild, yet tamed garden” – an aesthetic that Monica fell in love with from the show “Bridgerton.” There were countless personal touches that were put into this bespoke celebration, but the most important factor for the couple was how everyone they loved was going to be in the same room.
