Emerald and Gold Styled Shoot in Newport Beach

"Southern California, known as a melting pot of the nation, is home to both design and architecture influenced by a myriad of rich cultures and it's own unique landscape and climate. This results in it being a highly desirable location for couples to share their vows whether they're local or traveling from afar. The newly remodeled Balboa Inn is a great example of California culture. Steps from the sand and sea with ocean views and Spanish influences, this venue was the perfect, cozy location for an intimate styled shoot. Inspired by the location and a primarily green and neutral palette, Lisa from Simon Says Design sought out to deliver a design that could be adapted for any season. Our florist from 4 Fresh Blooms worked with greenery and blooms that would accent the overall design while being both relevant and attainable to a range of tastes and budgets. Out of the Dust Rentals created the foundation for the designs in the two spaces with rustic wood tabletops, vintage frames, brass candlesticks, a vintage chair upholstered in the Pantone color of the year, GREENERY, as well as other vintage and found objects. We were honored to be the FIRST to showcase the new tabletop collection from Cherished Rentals called "Eden", which features large dogwood blooms, green edging and fine gold accents. And last but not least, our model wore an incredible, one of a kind gown that was generously provided by the ladies at the Casablanca Flagship store in Newport Beach. The gorgeous dress was designed with a deep v-neck, sheer bodice and a full skirt, with horsehair hemmed layers that moved beautifully with the bride. Overall, this shoot represents the relaxed yet elegant lifestyle of a California bride, that appreciates fine design and simple details." -Simon Says Design
