In the words of the editor at Ruffled…
“When you have a destination like the Malibu Hills act as your muse, you get a luxe vogue wedding story overflowing with inspiration. This dashing combination of sharp and new with old and fading adds a serious sparkle to our eyes. We’ll gladly attest to the power of a black and gold palette, and it can only be enhanced by thoughtful touches of white marble and subtle pops of dusty rose. We’re staring all day at the cane back Dior chairs with dried branches (and a perhaps lingering a little too long on the speckled, statuesque cake with a sharp leaf motif). And now we double dog dare you not to fall in love with these images from Pura Soul Photography too!”
Thank you to Ruffled Blog for this glowing review of our work and the work of many vendors involved. We as so thankful to be surrounded by talented professionals that are fun to work with and who leave us inspired.
Southern California has a fascination with all things glamorous, and if you know where to look, you’ll see that glamour all the way up into the hills of Malibu. Perfectly positioned at the show-stopping Malibu Rocky Oaks and exquisitely styled by Joy Proctor, this wedding is classic Hollywood glamour with a twist of modern luxury and a lot of fun. We picked three iconic places on the property to showcase, the front courtyard, the infinity pool and the helicopter pad, which offered the perfect backdrop of Malibu’s iconic rocky skyline and vineyards.
On the helipad, Joy styled an intimate table setting with wingback chairs, marble place cards by Paper Birch and dramatic black candlesticks. Gold flatware combined with garden roses and dried branches are a great way to incorporate the arid terrain into a more elegant setting.
