Tropical, glam and wonderfully citrus, this destination microwedding in La Jolla was the perfect ode to Sarah and Scott’s original wedding plans in Hawaii mixed with an exceedingly intentional wedding experience. Thanks to the design expertise of Luxe Events, Sarah and Scott’s celebration was rife with creative storytelling, elevated blooms and bold color! Truly, this pair is just about as darling as they come, and their light-hearted merriment and love, sweet love permeate every visual heirloom from Cavin Elizabeth Photography. Surrounded by six of their nearest + dearest, who themselves cozied up in modern velvet chairs, Sarah and Scott exchanged their vows in a dreamy outdoor ceremony accented with lively blooms from Jennifer Cole Florals. Oh, how our hearts have been aching to share their story with you! Scroll on to see this tropical chic destination microwedding in full.
From the Photographer, Cavin Elizabeth Photography: Sarah and Scott were scheduled to marry with friends and family in Hawaii, but after 2 pandemic induced postponements pivoted to San Diego. They wanted to keep the tropical and bright aesthetic they had planned for Hawaii but give it an elegant twist, so they kept whimsical elements like the capiz shell curtain at their ceremony and paired it with glamorous chairs and a mirrored tabletop for their reception.
Using traditional elegance as their design guide, the vision of tropical paradise was woven throughout the reception with polished golds and layered place settings. These were paired with colorful florals that were lush and whimsical. Their wedding had just 8 guests total, including themselves, so they dined intimately al fresco.
Suffice it to say, this destination microwedding had us on our heels from the modern getting ready shots to the tall coral peony filled centerpieces peppering the al fresco reception. Check out this South African greenhouse wedding next for similar vibes with pink blooms + proteas galore!
