Get swept away by this dreamy wedding inspiration shot in beautiful Palos Verdes, California! Elizabeth Burgi captured each exquisite detail as the fog rolled in for this beautiful gold wedding. From the bride’s look to the décor of the celebration, this wedding concept blends classic details with bold glamorous elements for a stunning wedding theme.
An Angelic Bride
The bride’s gown mimicked the rolling fog for some stunning shots overlooking the mountain. A pop of bold eye makeup added some drama and contrast against the bride’s ethereal gown and romantic pale pink lips. Her hair was pulled back in a very sleek and classy bun, which allowed her stunning earrings to shine!
Planning Tip: Plan to capture these heavenly shots when the lighting is just right. Your photographer can work with you to schedule your bridal portraits around the sun!
An Outdoor Wedding Reception
A setting filled with natural beauty is an ideal backdrop for an outdoor wedding reception. The scenery can inspire your wedding flowers, too!
Glimmering Reception Décor
Delicate gold details with modern glittery accents made for a stunning sweetheart table! A vintage lace tablecloth is a classic foundation for more modern accents in the tabletop décor.
Hand-drawn calligraphy table numbers add a punch of personality to the table, and the organic composition of the centerpiece complements the lush landscape.
DIY Tip: Little embellishments make a big difference! Plan ahead and paint the table number easels and centerpiece containers gold to coordinate with the metallic color palette.
Bold glittery menus are the perfect additions to this classic décor and set the expectations for the meal to come.
Classic gold place card holder frames show guests to their seats and serve as special wedding favors, too! In keeping with the gold palette, lanterns and striped votives shed romantic light as the sun sets on an outdoor reception.
Finally, a favor at each seat incorporates a little “thank you” gift into the place settings. Cute gold favor boxes add more luster to the table, plus they’re perfect for a sweet treat!
Unique Wedding Desserts
As the menu indicates, guests were served espresso pot de crème for dessert. A unique wedding dessert is a special alternative to a traditional cake, but that doesn’t mean you have to skip a traditional cake cutting. A small cake is all you need for a photo op, and this mini cake made the love cake topper shine!
