Megan and David’s wedding at the Los Angeles Country Club was not just brimming with beauty, but was an incredibly meaningful day to be a part of. I knew before we even got started talking about decor and the overall design, that Megan’s mother had passed away and it was incredibly important that they feel her presence throughout the day. As Megan explained, “The most important goal of our wedding was the honor my mom, Beth, who passed away eight years ago. Even though she couldn’t be there with us in person, honoring her in the most organic and meaningful ways was our biggest priority. She was the most gracious and hospitable person I have ever met, and we wanted to incorporate as much southern charm and hospitality into the wedding as possible. Even though we are not from the south, my mom loved southern traditions, from welcoming people into your home with open arms and making each guest feel as though they are the most important person in the room, to mint juleps, monograms, and race horses.” I know it was special not just to the two of them, but to any guests who were lucky to know Beth as they noticed these tiny touches throughout.
I also love that Megan embraced the traditional nature of the venue- “the entire Club takes you back in time and brings you back to another era. It was built in 1897, and the gorgeous, white, two-story Clubhouse looks like it belongs in the south”, so Megan selected a preppy and pretty color scheme of navy blue and platinum, with hints of light pink and ivory. She also adores blue and white stripes- so navy blue and white grosgrain ribbon appeared throughout the wedding- as accent bows on silver trays on the dessert table, wrapped around the stems of all of the bouquets, as a band around guests dinner napkins, and decorating a basket full of ivory parasols for the guests to shade themselves during the outdoor ceremony.
There to capture all these wonderful details was Paul Barnett (of Barnett Photography) who did a fantastic job capturing all the love and all the sweet details of this special day. Below are my favorites from his images- enjoy:)
