Real Weddings: Kerali + Ryan

Every now and then, a wedding comes along that I just can’t get enough of, and Kerali and Ryan’s Newport Beach wedding is absolutely one I can sink myself into and never come out!  Equal parts rustic and romantic, each little detail is perfection – from the beyond (beyond!) fabulous Ark & Co. bridesmaids dresses to the succulent accepts and burlap bouquet wraps and table runners.  And what better place to celebrate than your parents’ backyard?  I’m completely captivated by all of these gorgeous images from Rebekah Westover Photography!












Kerali shared her favorite memory with us, and it’s just so sweet – everyone should have this giddy feeling on their wedding day!

“Ryan and I had 30 minutes with just each other before the ceremony. We were able to just sit in silence holding hands before the craziness of the day began. This is where I realized, this is really happening. I am marrying this man not only for time, but we get to be together for eternity. How lucky am I? Well, really, how lucky was he?! This was the instant that I relaxed and realized that no matter how much planning went into this wedding, that this was the most important moment. The ceremony. We were both nervous, but excited and most of all, ready to take this leap!”

Congratulations Kerali and Ryan!
