We’re thrilled to see this ocean view wedding featured on Inside Weddings!
Having always loved clean and timeless colors, such as whites, blushes, and nudes, Ashley knew that was the color palette she desired for the celebration. “I didn’t want to look back and be like, Why did I choose that bold color?” reveals the bride. With the color scheme in mind, Flowers by Cina further brought their vision to life with florals in the timeless and elegant essence the pair desired. “The day of the wedding took my breath away,” exclaims Ashley. “Talk about a dream!” Alternating high and low arrangements lush with ivory florals and clear and silver accents set a romantic tone for the alfresco ceremony space, which wowed 200 friends and family members who joined to watch the beautiful couple say “I do.”
The same aesthetics from earlier in the day were carried over to the evening festivities. The indoor reception space was lush with vanilla-toned blooms with subtle hints of blush, and accented with clear and silver accents, as well as crisp white linens by Luxe Linen. Guests were in awe of the beautiful flower wall displayed behind the newlyweds’ sweetheart table. “Although we had a large number of people, we still wanted it to be intimate, which is why we opted for a smaller room,” admits the bride of their venue choice. “We didn’t want people to branch off into different directions; we wanted everyone close together.”
After dinner and dessert was enjoyed, guests were surprised with a late-night bite to honor one of their favorite treats. “It was a dream come true… I karaoke’d, we had Taco Bell as our late-night snack, and we danced the night away,” notes the bride. When reflecting on her most memorable moments, Ashley didn’t know where to begin. Whether it was seeing Bryce’s custom tuxedo displaying their engagement photos printed on the inside, singing with the people she loved most, or shaking the sand off her dress mid-reception, she admits she would love to do it all over again. For couples planning their own nuptials, she advises: “Don’t Stress! Have fun with it. This is once-in-a-lifetime thing… Enjoy the process and know that whatever happens, happens.”
