Mel and Kev are so so so fun. They’re spunky, opinionated, classic, easy going, and in love. We hit it off immediately and while Miriam was in charge of coordinating their wedding day, I had the divine opportunity of working alongside of her [and them] for their wedding planning and design process! I cannot WAIT to see the pictures from their recently-passed October wedding but since I didn’t debut these before, there’s no better time than now to showcase how gorgeous the photos of up-and-comer Erin Alaine!
Melody and Kevin both share a deep rooted love for travel and tropical. Their wedding was a deeply personal reflection of their personalities and attitudes in life: beachy, mellow, and personal!
Their day was a classic intimate private estate wedding, held at Kevin’s brother’s home in Laguna Beach. The backdrop was perfect and complete with lanterns, shells, and orchids to set the tone for their guests [of course, you can’t forget the pintuck taffeta linens and the fruitwood chiavari chairs]!!
I LOVE this series:
Some classic black and whites:
Ugh those smiles totally brighten my heart!!
I have no idea where these shots are from, with the row of trees, but I’m so in love. Crazy about trees!! We don’t get to see those a lot in Orange County engagement sessions, that is for sure!
And one last one, with a bit of sun flair and a whole lot of character!!
If you’re planning you’re own modern style wedding with a beach-inspired twist, don’t hesitate to give the team at In The Now Weddings a call [or, just email me]. There are plenty of options for services and it’s definitely something you’ll never regret, enlisting the help of someone who knows the industry and events like only the pros can!
It’s amazing that I’ve got the rest of this year COMPLETELY wedding-free and more than that, quite flexible for meetings, venue walk thrus, initial consultations, and design ideas! I’m totally loving it, but a bit in shell-sock after a busy 2009 season. Trying my best to soak it in this week in the post-vacation madness! What are you doing to soak in your love, life, and harness your happiness today?? Be well, until we post again!
