Maureen & Jon

The wedding was of Maureen and Jon, who met at Boston University and got engaged after settling down in California. They decided early on in the planning of their wedding that they wanted it to be three things: simple, so that they could relax and enjoy it; elegant, so that it would feel really special; and fun, so that they could have a great time celebrating with their family and friends, many of whom had to do a bit of traveling in order to attend. With those three things in mind, they set out to find the perfect destination wedding location and did so with Surf & Sand Resort. They chose an ivory and charcoal color scheme for an elegant backdrop and added a few pops of color with fuchsia flowers and bridesmaids dresses meant to mimic the colors of the bougainvilleas seen throughout Laguna. In order to tie in their Boston foundation, they used pictures of favorite landmarks and locations for table names and included a saltwater taffy bar.
