Martha and John’s Malibu West Beach Club wedding is all about easy elegance, personal elements, and casual beauty.Â Martha designed the event herself and put so much thought into creating a fun California experience for her midwest family and friends.Â She also even made her own gorgeous wedding gown – so talented!
Creating all of the elements of the day was a true group effort.Â Martha’s sister jumped in to make the colorful ceremony programs!
Guests enjoyed cocktails on the patio with a stunning view of the Pacific before heading inside the beach club for dinner.Â Carrie Fick of CFS Design created a comfortably elegant atmosphere with sand-toned linens, centerpieces of personal bud vases, and wine bottle table numbers.
Escort cards were polaroid pictures of each guest – everyone had such fun looking through the images to find their photo!
Martha and John set out squares of fabric for guests to sign as a guest book, which they will stitch together into a quilt.
To end the evening, guests received macaron favors, baked by a friend.
And naturally, Martha and John’s engagement session is also awesome.Â You can see the images here on Heidi’s blog; it was set in a silent movie theater!
