Yeah, we’re pretty spoiled living in Southern Cali. But hey, at least we never forget it or take it for granted. Instead, we thank our lucky stars everyday for the year-round sunshine, sandy beaches, and beautiful wedding venues nestled in the rolling hills of the Santa Monica Mountains. Shannon + Marcus chose one of those hidden gem spots for their elegant yet relaxed soiree. With glorious old oak trees and scenic views as the backdrop, RomaBea Images was able to capture some really magical moments.
These Badgley Mischka pumps make a pretty sweet something blue.
Why leave anyone out if you don’t have to? Shannon + Marcus just went for it with their 17-person bridal party.
How’s that for a cozy outdoor spot?
Shannon says, We wanted the quintessential California wedding for all of our out-of-town visitors: outdoors with a mellow vibe, local wines and spirits, gourmet yet familiar foods, and an inviting atmosphere.
Cheers Shannon + Marcus!
