Featured Wedding: Brooke and Patrick on Style Me Pretty! (Part 1)

Brooke and Patrick’s Newport, CA wedding is featured on Style Me Pretty and it’s been so hard for us to contain ourselves and not share their wedding pictures with you. We LOVED everything about it!

We first met Brooke’s family a few years ago when we planned her older sister’s wedding. Families as sweet as theirs do not come along often and when we heard that Brooke and Patrick were engaged, we instantly began brainstorming. We had SO much fun helping create this beautiful wedding with Brooke and Patrick- everything about it was perfection including the couple, who was completely relaxed and so happy the entire day!

Because the wedding was a kind of “destination wedding” Brooke and Patrick wanted to make sure their guests felt welcomed and comfortable. We put together hotel boxes for all of the out-of-town guests that had plenty of goodies. In the boxes we included some items that incorporated the location like Pirates Booty and Salt Water Taffy but also included some necessary items like water and an “In Case of Emergency” kit filled with Advil, Tums, and mints.

Brooke and Patrick chose The Resort at Pelican Hill for their wedding venue because as a child, Brooke vacationed there with her family; not only is it special for the memories she has, but even as a little girl, Brooke knew she wanted to get married there.

The view of the Pacific Coast is one of the most gorgeous features of the resort and we knew right away we wanted to focus on the spectacular landscape as we planned the wedding; the ceremony happened to be just a bit before sunset so the white, orange and pink color palette was a natural choice.

The ceremony, in my opinion, is still one of the most beautiful I’ve ever been a part of- the dramatic draping and floral arrangements at the rotunda are just gorgeous and create the perfect frame for Brooke and Patrick’s vows. To add a bit of glam, we used mirrored boxes at the entrance to the aisle that not only added some shine but also added visual interest- the reflection of the green grass and other decor elements made for a cool effect; extra large pomander balls and an unforgettable ombre petal carpet completed the design.

Instead of traditional vows, the couple chose to write ten things they loved about each other- this moment became even more special when everyone realized many of the things they chose were the same! After the vows, Brooke and Patrick put them in a wine box to open together in the future. Instead of using a typical wooden box, we chose a clear acrylic box that was customized with their names and the wedding date; since Brooke believes in sparkle, we placed the wine bottle on a bed of gold and pink glitter!
