Katie and Paul wanted to have their wedding at the gorgeous Ritz Carlton Dana Point so all their relatives from out of town could enjoy an elegant, Southern California wedding on the beach. The inspiration for Katie and Paul's beach wedding was tropical beach utilizing a color palette of white, blue and green.
Before the wedding, guests enjoyed a lovely rehearsal dinner at The Deck in Laguna Beach, beach volleyball and a run on the beach with the bride.
Katie's bouquet consisted of perfect white orchids and roses and the bridesmaids carried bouquets with beautiful hydrangea, roses and tulips by Fresh Cut Floral Design. The ceremony was filled with gorgeous flowers hanging from above, and floating flowers in glass vases were placed along the aisle. Katie and Paul were married with the ocean as their backdrop, as well as gorgeous arrangements atop clear acrylic stands of orchids and hydrangea.
