Del Mar Wedding Celebrates True Love on the Beach and Those Who Serve in Style

Games, the beach, the ocean, friends, family and fun and our fave the military saber arch (sword salute)! This charming wedding on the beach celebrates true love and those who serve, in style!

Danny is in the Marine Corps and due to, deployments and training it took this gorgeous couple (who are already legally married) tow years to finally have time to have their dream wedding! The wedding theme was beachy natural earthy colors -gray, champagne/ivory, dusty mint, sage, blush and the bride Jacque even did her own flowers! Their romantic and intimate ceremony was on the beach in the sand at the Del Mar Beach Resort in Camp Pendleton. After, the guests enjoyed beach games such as Jenga, Cornhole, Ringtoss at the Cocktail hour. Their lively reception was in a tent on the beach directly behind the ceremony site, where there was lots of dancing, fun party props/hats and S'mores! The fun Bride and Groom had special military themed cookies and donuts instead of a cake!

By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea... enjoy dreamy water colored wedding Boho Styled Shoot

Photographer Sydney Takeshta’s inner flower child rejoiced with her tambourine and floral crown when Lorena of A Rustic Vintage Affair and she decided to create a seaside styled shoot with a bohemian, watercolor theme. We think you'll love the soothing ocean inspired tones and dreamy Boho styling of this lovely shoot. And if you listen closely you can almost hear the waves kissing the rocks and the cry of the gulls overhead.  

On a blindingly golden, classic Southern California afternoon, with the tide high, all the details came together.

The color palette of lavender, greys, blues and a pop of Marsala combines to bring the soft watercolors of the sea together with a bold note. The whole shoot and tablescape, designed by Lorena Rich from A Rustic and Vintage Affair, creates the feeling of a husband and wife who’ve  just eloped and are celebrating their special moment on the beach having a romantic evening dinner.

Located right on the boardwalk in Pacific Beach Tower 23 is modern, hip and gorgeous! Your wedding  guests will know they are in California for sure as they play in the sand, watch a sunset from the pier and dine on the the fresh and delicious California cuisine that Tower 23's restaurant does superbly.

Editor's Note: we have actually held a private social event at this venue and we had the best experience and were so well taken care of and the food was really, really good! Tower 23 is right on the boardwalk yet our event had all the privacy we needed and plenty of different spaces to handle all our needs. Love!!
