Who says that a casual and laid back can’t mean gorgeous and detailed?
Casual. Laid-back. These words aren’t typically the first words you think of when it comes to a wedding. But it should be! This doesn’t mean that the wedding won’t be beautiful, detailed and intimate. What it means is that the bride and groom have put an emphasis on wanting their guests to have the very best time, and that’s just what Kelly + Ryan did with their intimate, beach wedding at Annenberg Beach House.
This couple was so much fun to work with. Kelly + Ryan wanted their coastal beach wedding to be a gathering of family and friends (+ their pup, McGee). They didn’t have a bridal party, and instead wanted it to feel like all their guys and gals were just hanging out at the beach together – with us there to document it all!
One of my favorite moments of the day was when we were heading from the Fairmont over to the park for photos. They jumped on a bird together! How fun and unique is that? I think it truly shows who they are as a couple and I love everything about it! The Palisades Park, where we took the photos, is one of the bride and grooms favorite spots. Their day was filled with so many personal details!
Their ceremony was short and sweet with the most beautiful blessing from their families. This was just one of the incredible intimate and beautiful moments from this coastal beach wedding. The vibe of the evening was laid back, and elegant at the same time. It was clearly evident how important family and friends are to the couple, and they spent much of the evening chatting and drinking with their guests. McGee was running around with his toy which was too cute. Another great moment was when trying to wrangle all the nieces and nephews for a photo. Some were laughing and some were not having it, but Kelly and Ryan enjoyed every minute and laughed right along with it!
Thank you for having us be apart of your beautiful beach wedding, Kelly and Ryan! It was such a beautiful day!
