Annie & Kevin: Polynesian Perfection at Montage Hotel
After getting engaged, Annie and Kevin dreamed of having their wedding on the California coast and ended up tying the knot at the Montage in Laguna Beach. With help from Marisa Nicole Events, the couple effortlessly captured beauty and elegance while tying in some Polynesian flair. The vibrant color palette popped against the cool earthy tones of the beach. To further enhance the island vibe, pineapple accents were used abundantly from the invitations all the way to the reception. All of Annie's favorite plants were incorporated into her bouquet by Enchanted Garden Floral Design, which boasted ginger, orchids, explosion glass, bougainvillea, anthruium and mini pineapples.
The couple walked down the aisle to the soft strums of the ukulele in front of their loved ones and an expansive ocean view. We absolutely loved the paper cups of flower petal confetti that guests threw as the bride and groom walked back down the aisle as newlyweds! During cocktail hour, guests sipped on signature drinks and enjoyed hors d'oeuvres before entering the lavish reception featuring Polynesian dancing. Family and friends danced as dinner was served, and the happy couple tasted their first bites of cake presented on top of an engraved tree stump platter. The whole day was simply a dream, showcasing the couple's vision perfectly.
