Wedding Inspiration from a Classic Movie

The look and feel of this wedding was actually inspired by the 1954 version of ‘Sabrina’ – with the backdrop of a beautiful San Diego sunset! The ceremony was held in the Garden and was very personal, a close friend of the family was their officiant, and their female friends and family members shared in the Persian sofreh part of the evening as well. Everyone enjoyed cocktail hour with beautiful flamenco guitar music and firelight before heading to the ballroom reception. There they enjoyed great food, prayers and toasts from their family, and lots and lots of dancing.

This simple table design takes its inspiration from the beachy bayside. Peach, cream and white help bring in that summertime feel while the mimosa bar also keeps things light and refreshing. Though the table design is simple, the gold adds a nice spark to the plate settings. Grab a mimosa and take notes ladies because this tablescape is bound to inspire your wedding by the bayside.
