I had the absolute pleasure of working with Kathryn and Rob on a family friendly destination wedding. Living in Chicago, the couple wanted to bring their 5 children to Southern California for an intimate wedding ceremony in front of close family and friends. Their request was to make the event child-friendly and “non-weddingy”. The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel was the perfect venue for a combination family vacation and wedding ceremony. We were blessed with a gorgeous autumn day that showcased the sweeping ocean views.The flowers, by Isari Flower Studio, were colorful and bright and featured elements true to our California themed wedding with sea shells, coral and sea stars. The couple’s children were adorable and served as flower girls and ring bearers. The girls carried candy pomanders made from Dum-Dum lollipops, while the boys wore pinwheel boutonnieres with their own candy centers.
