You know a bride + groom are just too cool when they choose a classic theme like nautical and transform it into something that totally represents their playful, sweet relationship. Candy colors, sailor motifs, and good vibes made up the design—all after their initial planner didn’t come through. (A blessing in disguise because Vanessa of Alchemy Fine Events clearly executed Christin’s vision flawlessly.) They were pretty thrilled when she also recommended Ashley Kelemen—now they’ve got a go-to photographer for life.

Christin explains, It was love at first beach! We actually met in La Jolla at John’s beach house birthday party. The open ocean, sunshine, and white sand has been something that we both enjoy and consider a necessity in our life. We found ourselves always taking vacation to tropical destinations with amazing beaches. A beach wedding was an absolute dream come true for us.

C + J actually danced down the aisle to Bruno Mars’ Marry You, and had their first dance to Lucky by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat. Catch a snippet in the Joel VanZ film below. To those of you watching from the office—you will definitely giggle… And probably cry. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Too sweet for words, congratulations you guys!

Classic romance with a modern spin and hints of Italian elegance… That’s what Jennifer Bradshaw Events had in mind when designing the set at this San Francisco private residence in Pacific Heights. The home is so beautiful on its own, when you add all the elements Jennifer did, the inspiring details sure start to add up.

Thanks photog Edyta Szyszlo for sending these pictures!

For the bar I created a ‘his’ and ‘hers’ element so I matched Veuve and champagne coupes with Saison Du Point Beer and Biere steins. I stuck with the muted tones of peach, ivory, and gold and added pops of tangerine to match the glow of the pillar candles and play off the gold accents in the other rooms.

I love garlands for any tablescape because they add an element of modernity and wilderness, and paired with David Austin Roses you cannot ask for anything more lovely. The muted sequin linen was an amazing foundation for the magic of Frances Lane—the dishware and rose goblets added the extra bit of charm. I love the combination of peach, blush, and gold and wanted those colors throughout the shoot—all pretty and pink.

This time of year we’re betting that everyone is ready for some lazy, warm days in a tropical paradise. Perfect time of year to pack your bag with a new suit (and not much else), and jet off on an adventure to Kauai. It’s all easy living on island time, and your vacation wardrobe should be too.

Kauai honeymoon style | 100 Layer Cake

Stay on the quiet north side of the island at the St. Regis Princeville, where our friend Katie of EA Honeymoons can book you an amazing stay, complete with free breakfast for 2, a $100 hotel credit, and complimentary upgrade whenever possible.

Take day trips to hike the Kalalau trail along the Napali Coast, kayak in sea caves, and dine in the charming surf town of Hanalei. Circle ’round to the other side of the island for spectacular snorkeling and a visit to the stunning Waimea Canyon. Or just lay on the beach and drink Mai Tais. Can’t go wrong.

1. Classic sunnies
2. Organic sunscreen from Nine Naturals
3. A simple beachy tee
4. Shima cuff from Misa Jewelry
5. Silk bedroom romper
6. Scarf/wrap for après beach and cooler nights
7. Perfect white kaftan
8. Opal Dream ring
9. Hawaiian print shorts
10. Sun hat
11. Leather sandals
12. MCMC perfume oil
13. Leather-handled tote
14. Beach read
15. Sexy new suit
