Formal Italian-inspired wedding at Malibu Rocky Oaks
Guys, this modern formal wedding inspiration at Malibu Rocky Oaks is such a good example of letting your venue influence your design choices. Joy Proctor Design and the team at Donny Zavala’s workshop took advantage of the venue’s timeless Tuscan feel and spectacular views with a luxe, yet organic design. And did we mention how perfectly suited this dreamy vignette is for film photography? Sky + Devin of Pura Soul Photography played up the romance by using Contax645 and Fuji400h medium format film.
Los Angeles’ show-stopping venue, Malibu Rocky Oaks, is much like the striking landscape of Tuscany and this styled wedding shoot will leave you dreaming of Italian nuptials. As true Italians would have it, cypress trees line the windy road showing guests from afar which direction to enter the estate. Between the olive trees, the vineyards and the rolling hills, Malibu Rocky Oaks offers endless vistas and places for photography. We chose three locations on the property to showcase Joy Proctor’s impeccable styling. First, the table setting around the infinity pool and deck, portraits in the interior lounge and finally sunset on the helicopter pad.
Joy Proctor and the team mixed local olive branches with gold accents to incorporate modern luxury and natural elements in the same space.
This shoot was a special one for us. We really loved interacting with this couple and capturing their effortless beauty together and individually. The Musat dress moved gracefully in the wind as the sunset over the Malibu hills into the horizon. This shoot was part of a workshop hosted by Donny Zavala and styled by Joy Proctor, we had an ah-ha moment as all the pieces came together at the same time during sunset.
Sigh… So lovely. Be sure to follow everyone below for more beautiful wedding inspiration:
