Erin & Steve’s chic California wedding was held at the breathtaking Resort at Pelican Hill. With majority of their guests being from out of state, Pelican Hill truly served as the quintessential California destination wedding location with it’s 360 degree view of the coastline in beautiful Newport Coast, CA. This gorgeous couple wanted their wedding to be a representation of them from start to finish, and they pulled together a fantastic team of vendors to help them achieve their wedding dreams.
Erin & Steve met at a bar in Santa Monica and shared their first kiss back at that same spot. As a nod to the beginning of their love story, Erin and Steve thought it would be fitting to tie in some design elements from the same bar where they had shared so many great memories together. The couple selected Shawna Yamamoto as their event designer, who was the perfect match to bringing their vision to life! Their wedding was elegant and had character. We love the personal touches such as the Signature Cocktails called “The Pee Wee Special” and “The Gnomie”, which were named after Erin & Steve’s childhood nicknames. A little glitz and glam mixed with masculine touches and timeless elements are what made this wedding a true stunner! Not to mention Erin’s fabulous Inbal Dror wedding gown which was a light champagne beaded figure-hugging gown and a stunning tulle and lace detachable skirt in which she removed after the ceremony for a more sultry look. Steve did not look to shabby himself in his dark navy suit and coat of arms. One very important element to Erin & Steve was their band, and Cowling Band of West Coast Music did not disappoint! Guests danced the night away while snacking on their late night burgers from In-N-Out, a California classic enjoyed by all!
