Davis and Sara's La Jolla Beach Wedding: Part 1

Last month, I had the privilege of seeing Davis and Sara's wedding come to life at Torrey Pines State Beach and The Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla. I had been working with this fun couple for a year on their wedding plans and every day of it was such a joy.

When talking about decor, Sara knew that she wanted something a little different, not too matchy matchy and fun. What that translated into was a day full of personal details and lots of fun for all of their guests. 

We had a great time working with Jason of Garret Photography and are delighted to share some of his photos with you.

First, let me introduce you to the gorgeous  bride and adorable groom:

Now onto the ceremony on the beach at Torrey Pines State Beach:
Guests were greeting with a shoe changing station. Sara found this old trunk on CragisList for $20! Flipflops were purchased from Dollar Days

Sara and Davis live in Encinitas and whenever friends come to visit, they take them down to the beach and have each person collect a rock. They keep them in their home in a bowl- how special is that? Taking from that tradition, we used those same rocks to line the ceremony aisle and also placed one on every chair to hold the programs down. Gerber daisies are Sara's favorite flower, so we incorporated them in where ever we could. 
How killer is this photo?
The bridesmaid dresses were from J. Crew and the guys cool grey suits were actually purchased from JC Penny.

I have to end with a special moment for my husband. He played guitar for their ceremony music and it was so fun! Sara loves The Beatles so he played all Beatles songs. She walked down the aisle to "Here  Comes the Sun" and they exited to my hubby singing and playing "All You Need is Love". Other songs included "Blackbird", "When I'm 64" and "Across the Universe". I loved it!

I am off to New York early tomorrow morning (yay!) but stayed tuned for part two of this wedding on monday! You won't want to miss it: a cool favor idea, a hot groom's cake and some yummy decor.
