Oh California, how we love you and your beachside weddings. Ashley + Danny had the ultimate SoCal wedding. She’s always had dreams of being a mermaid, he’s always loved the beach, and together they’ve shared a love for classic rock. So naturally they incorporated all of that into their wedding. She wore a beach goddess-like Jenny Packham dress, their escort cards were “backstage band passes”, their colors were seafoam green + peach (with a side of sequins), and they ended the night by jumping into the ocean.
How great are these Art Deco inspired bridesmaid dresses?
Their cute whimsical kelp wedding invitations are from minted.
The story behind these ‘backstage pass” escort cards:
We met on a Sunday, at the same cabana. I had over heard Danny talking about making fake backstage passes to get in the front row at concerts. As a huge music lover, I thought that was super cool and asked if he wanted to be my friend. So instead of traditional place cards we made fake backstage passes to tie in how we met.
Everything went off without a hitch. We got really lucky that I had time to be really hands on to make our day, uniquely us. I know it’s cliche but it really was the best day of our lives. The only thing missing was a dog. I wish we could have found a way to incorporate him some how. Take the time to make it how you want it. I tried to make every element special to what we like and our personalities. Also, don’t be afraid to ask friends for help. It turns out they really love being involved and feel honored to be apart of your special day.
Well said. Congratulations Ashley + Danny!
