Monterey Museum garden wedding: Megan + Phil

Wedding florals

All you need to know is Megan + Phil’s dreamy color palette (ivory, champagne, pink, green, and gold) to imagine just how lovely their wedding Monterey museum was. They went for “romantic garden party” and everything from the dress to the amaze 4-tiered wedding cake so, so delivered. Thanks to Cara Robbins for sharing these photos with us!

Wedding dress

What did we say about this dress? The Amsale Dahlia gown truly couldn’t have been better for a romantic garden party wedding with its shirred bodice and hand-pleated taffeta embroidered skirt.

Wedding reception

When we first started looking at venues, we were drawn to intimate, warm spaces, spaces that felt unique and different. The Monterey Museum of Art- La Mirada was not only beautiful and historic, but scenic and classic. It was the perfect space for us, plus our family and friends loved the local history and sweet smelling rose gardens… We planned our wedding in two years, but the hardest part was planning the wedding away from my family. I never imagined I wouldn’t have my mom and sister with me for the little things that go into all the decision-making, but thankfully they were always a phone call away! We were very fortunate to have Phil’s family for lots of love and support through it all.

On choosing a photographer, Megan says, Cara and I spoke on the phone for more than an hour getting to know each other. I was blown away with her photos on her website and knew after speaking to her, she was the perfect photographer for us. We wanted our photographer to really capture who we were without making us feel pressured to look a certain way. She is fantastic at what she does and Phil and I could not be happier with our pictures!

I love the idea of using records as the wedding guestbook (or would it be a "wedding record" now?) As a record lover, I feel like I should have thought of that! You can even frame them and hang them, which is awesome compared to what you would presumably do with a regular guestbook (toss it into a storage bin for eternity).

What a beautiful wedding. I love the soft romantic colors. Megan, your dress was perfection and you looked gorgeous. The cake is absolutely to die for. I love the seeded eucalyptus all around. Swoon!

What a beautiful garden wedding! Crazy about the invites, they are perfect! And so many little details so well put together. Simple things like sage leaves tucked into the napkins and foiled edges on the flower create such a polished effect. Love it!
