Wedding Wednesday: Elegant Oceanside Wedding

This Wedding Wednesday we're heading to the beach. Newlyweds Hayley and David tied the knot during a beautiful ocean-side ceremony in California. So kick off your shoes and stick your toes in the sand of this elegant beach wedding. 

The beach was the main focal point of Hayley and David's wedding day theme. Guests were invited to the nuptials with a beachy invitation, telling them to "Set sail for" the wedding. A map was included in the invitation suite highlighting key locations in Hayley and David's relationship. 

Family and friends headed to the beach to see the couple share their vows. Guests sat on benches facing a fabulous backdrop of ocean waves.

Halyey walked up the sandy aisle, lined with ferns, in a stunning lace wedding dress to meet David at the shoreline. The bridesmaids dresses consisted of varying metallic hues and lengths. 

After the ceremony the new Mr. and Mrs. processed down the aisle, their faces shining with a just-married glow. 

To commemorate the day and all those who attended, guests posed for a photo on the beach with the bride and groom. Everyone was caught up in the happiness of the day, beaming from ear to ear. 

As guests arrived at the reception, they were seated at long tables. Place cards were creatively set under clear plates for guests to find their seat and table setting. 

Bright pops of orange could be found throughout the day. The vibrant color added a great accent to the calm, pale colors of the beach. Orange flowers were mixed with white arrangements to add color throughout the venue. 


Guests packed their plates with delicious comfort food options including chicken, macaroni and cheese, and an assortment of vegetables. 

Bursts of orange accents extended to the dessert table. The four-tiered, vanilla frosted, cake was adorned with orange flowers to accessorize the simply decorated cake. 

The day was filled with beauty, beach weather, and happiness, and the happy couple wouldn't have had it any other way. 

Congratulations to Hayley and David!
