Drew & Mieke: Garden Inspired Elegance at Pelican Hill

This, my friends, is what we like to call pure perfection. A breathtaking garden inspired wedding that seamlessly mixed and matched beachy romance with classic elegance. From the bride's stunning Monique Lhuillier gown, to the sweeping coastal views and an abundance of warm lush florals, you can see why this wedding caught our attention. Big time. The stunning couple exchanged heartfelt vows under Pelican Hill's timeless iconic rotunda while friends and family took pause for this beyond special day.

Kerrie Underhill of Platinum Weddings by Kerrie designed the romantic outdoor ceremony that was followed by an elegant ballroom reception. A palette of ivory, muted yellows, gold and blush harmoniously made for a reception space to die for. The couple wanted their guests to feel as if they were on a vacation getaway, and made sure that the reception was filled with decadent food, great music, personal touches, and non-stop dancing. Their dramatic five-tiered wedding cake was accented with cascading roses and adorned with greenery which fit perfectly with the romantic garden infused theme of the evening. The entire celebration was a spectacle of elegance and love, which was matched only by the undeniable love shared between the bride and groom.

From the bride..."The vision for the wedding was to have a beautiful comforting feel. I wanted the wedding to feel like a getaway for people. I chose warm tones of gold and cream and I found that Pelican Hill, with its beautiful wooden chandeliers and the natural scenery worked very well with my theme. The floral arrangements had a natural elegance to them, and included hanging greenery to go with the natural and elegant theme. I like that we had a view of the ocean but it was still private. The ceremony was probably what made this venue so unique. The rotunda and ocean view were spectacular. My bridesmaids and groomsmen walked to Clair de Lune, which has a really special place in both Drew and my hearts as we see it describing the beginning of our relationship. I walked down the aisle with my father. The aisle was littered with white rose pedals. Drew and I wrote our own vows and at one point he even teared up while reading them to me!"
