This intimate micro wedding at the Inn at Laguna Beach was absolutely dreamy! One of the perks of planning a smaller and more intimate wedding is that you can be so thoughtful about every little detail, and Jessica and Christian absolutely were! I loved their burnt orange and cream color scheme, and their florist was nothing short of AMAZING. I mean, just look at the leafy masterpiece of their ceremony centerpiece.

 

Jessica and Christian said their vows by this beautiful floral frame, right on the roof of The Inn at Laguna Beach. It was so special to hold a wedding right by the ocean like that, with the sound of the waves in the background. In their own words, these two are complete opposites that balance each other out – and I could feel the love and deep devotion throughout the day!

Intimate Celebrations at the Inn at Laguna Beach

After the rooftop ceremony, I stole the happy couple away for some priceless photos on the beach. When you’ve got a beachside venue like the Inn at Laguna Beach, this is a must. I loved hanging out with them and watching them bask in that happy, just-married glow!

 

We headed back to the Inn at Laguna Beach for an intimate rooftop dinner with Jessica and Christian’s closest friends and family. It’s always such a privilege to have a window into these kinds of exclusive family moments, and I loved getting to capture it all. The night rounded off with a truly romantic first dance – the perfect end to a dreamy day!
