Beachside weddings are truly wonderful… hearing the ocean purring in the background, the fresh salty air in your nose, and then you add to that a lovely couple, a gorgeous day, a fantastic venue, and you have Erik & Drew’s wedding… it truly was a Stunning Seaside Wedding…
It was such a pleasure working with this couple… Drew & Erik had been sweethearts for a long time, and when the preparations were underway for their wedding, it was inspiring to see how well this couple matched and came together to create a beautiful wedding. Drew knew exactly what she wanted, and frankly, Erik was astute enough to make sure his sweet bride-to-be got it.
Drew & Erik selected the “Something Blue” Stunning Seaside venue, the Surf & Sand Resort, for both the ceremony and reception. Their ceremony was held overlooking the blue Pacific Ocean on a softly overcast day, perfect for pictures! Jenny B Floral Design compiled a Stunning display of festive floral pomanders on glass vases down the aisle and the altar area was flanked by large Manzanita trees atop pewter boxes with Drew & Erik’s initials on them.
Their ceremony itself was intimate, personal and a bit funny, led by the always wonderful Michael Bischof (officiant) and accompanied by the talented Pamela Brown (harpist).
After the ceremony while the Bride & Groom were wrapping up their family portraits with the wonderful Dana Grant (Photographer) and the talented Marc from Ashley Video Productions, their guests enjoyed the delectable fair of Dungeness crab, coconut prawns and quenching cocktails… Then guests were beckoned into the Pelican Room for the fairest of fair reception: truly Stunning florals by Jenny B Floral Design, darling sand dollar place cards, beautiful custom menus, sweet-smelling seashell candles, chocolate brown linens by Mikasa Linens, chivari chairs by Fusion Linens, up-lighting and ambient music by Honored Occasions, and the most darling and tasty dessert station, by none other than the fabulous Sweet & Saucy… Drew even surprised Erik with a small groom’s cake!
It was truly an evening to remember, as I recall hearing several guests comment on how simply wonderful the day was. Thank you, Drew & Erik, for giving me the opportunity to share in this special day with you both!
