Intimate Oceanside Elopement Styled Shoot

"Having worked with The Lockharts in the past, I was over the moon excited to work with such talented photographers once again. For this shoot, they requested something with an ocean view that really showcased California’s most wonderful scenery. Being an alumna of Marymount California University, I immediately remembered the breathtaking views of the Rancho Palos Verdes cliffs and incredibly stunning sunsets. I knew it would be the perfect venue to shoot. Its dream-like aerial views were magically captured by Bakers Man Productions with drone footage to give you full panoramic views of the property and its scenery. To add that “je ne sais quois” to the final photo product, our friends at Goodman Film Lab made sure the final scans were perfect.

When designing the elements of this editorial, I wanted to create something that combined the extraordinary views every couple dreams of having on their wedding day with a simple, yet elegant design that cohesively brought together both land and sea with soft pastel tones and intricate floral designs. Unique Floral Designs knew exactly what I had in mind and created the ideal arrangements for our ceremony altar and intimate elopement table on the hill and bridal bouquet with delicate flowers that highlighted the perfect tones. La Piñata Party Rentals made it easy to bring this dream oceanside wedding to life with their geometric altarpieces, artisan tables, chairs, and dinnerware. Blooming Paper exquisitely matched the floral and table design with her specialty stationery and place cards which were styled perfectly with luxury silk ribbon by Hey Its Oh So Pretty. The three-tiered cake was made and beautifully decorated by Kira Bakes. Everything came together with the exquisite catering and cocktails created by Critic’s Choice Catering. Their Petite Bride and Groom charcuterie platter featured delicious and colorful imported meats and cheeses paired perfectly with specialty cocktails to match the occasion."
