Rustic Romance: Laguna Beach Summer Wedding

Monday, May 26 2014

From the day they met, everything about Shannon and Mike's relationship has been out of the ordinary. They first crossed paths at a music festival where Shannon boldly approached Mike, entered her number in his cell phone under "Shannon The Best", and walked away. A friendship immediately blossomed and, over the next year, it transformed into a fairytale romance. 

After Mike popped the question, the couple set out to create their dream wedding. Their main inspiration came from a gorgeous wall at their venue, the SEVEN4ONE in Laguna Beach, that is dripping with living plants and reclaimed wood. Shannon envisioned a ceremony and reception that encompassed that theme of nature and teamed up with Events by Robin to bring it all to life. The rustic-meets-modern decor was the perfect represententation of the contrast between Shannon's Southern Georgia roots and Mike's Boston upbringing. The ceremony was held outdoors with a flower-lined grass aisle that was later repurposed underneath their sweetheart table. Guests then made their way to the reception which was decorated with white orchids, hydrangeas, and an abundance of luscious green accents. They were served a light dinner and milk and cookies before the couple cut into their lace-trimmed cake which was topped with two adorable squirrel figurines. 

Just like their love, Shannon and Mike's rustic-meets-modern wedding was a match made in heaven.
