It was such a pleasure to be part of Christina and Rick’s beach wedding at the gorgeous Hotel Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica, California.

Vibe: Natural elegant beach wedding with a neutral color palette of white, cream, muted blues, and greenery.

We love it when a couple lets us design out of the box. We incorporated mid-century modern elements to the historic 1930’s Carondelet House in Hollywood, California, giving their wedding a timeless quality.

Loved using the George Nelson lamps!
