Featured In California Wedding Day Magazine
We are so excited to be featured in print in the Winter 2018 print issue of California Wedding Day Magazine for a gorgeous St Malo Beach wedding!
Planned by Platinum Weddings by Kerrie, both the beachside ceremony to the intimate reception dinner evoked an elegant coastal dinner party feel that felt “approachable, bright and more casual than glam”
“HOME SWEET BEACH HOME: Nicole’s grandparents built a retreat in a Breton-inspired private enclave in Oceanside called St Malo back in the ’60’s, and Nicole spent many weekends and holidays in the Oceanside neighborhood. It was there that she learned to surf, gazed at the stars with her late father, challenged her brothers to fierce games of ping pong and where eventually she started to bring Matt. During their annual pre-Thanksgiving weekend stay in 2015, Matt popped the question while they were walking her mom’s dog. They considered venues from Napa to Cape Cod, but ultimately decided to get married at Nicole’s ‘happy place.’
AISLE STUNNER:Preserving the natural beauty of the surrounding environment was the main design goal for the sandy ceremony. The couple opted for low wood benches and a curved aisle lined with snapdragons, which are plentiful in the area and evoked a fond memory Nicole has of her father. The arbor, built by her brothers, was covered in white roses, another flower commonly found in the community.” – California Wedding Day
