Real Weddings: Lyndsy + Elon 5.17.08 Part II

Yesterday, we shared Lyndsy and Elon’s gorgeous Malibu ceremony, as photographed by the incredible Natalie Moser.  Today, we give you their beautiful reception, including all of the details that they executed to perfection!  Take a look at their beautiful reception from a distance…

Amazing, right?  I love the strung lanterns.

Now for those fantastic details… Elon’s boutonniere is the perfect embodiment of the day to me. It’s funky, fresh, and absolutely adorable.  And paired with the lemon striped tie, WOW!


And speaking of lemons.  Yesterday, I mentioned that I thought they “branded” their wedding very well.  Here are a few examples of how Lyndsy and Elon weaved their motif, lemons, into their event: favor tags, decor on the guest book table, and the lemons on their candy buffet.

In addition to the custom labels on the Jones soda bottles, which used one of their engagement pictures, the duo also got creative with their table numbers!  Also, notice the detail of the lemons in the centerpieces – very subtle.

It’s so clear that this couple is full of love and fun.  His expression after “cutting” their cupcakes is classic!

As day transitioned into night, those lanterns made for very practical decor!
