Malibu Wedding Inspiration

malibu-wedding-ideasInspired by the jagged coastline of Malibu, we designed this seaside inspired wedding shoot with a palette of pale corals, taupes, nudes, and soft grey blues. For the bouquets, La Petite Gardenia used protea and fluffy astilbe mixed with spiky thistle to create a textured, organic bouquet. On the table, we used coral mixed with tulips and over-sized sculptural paper flowers. For the cake, Vanilla Bake Shop, incrusted with big grains of rock salt. Ah, to smell the salty air of the ocean!

From modern, to rustic, to whimsical, our recent clients’ paper goods reflected the style and personality unique to each couple and their wedding design. Above, this couple loved understated elegance, their invitations featured simple stone gray typography, horizontally aligned and printed using classic letterpress technique.


For a winter Colorado wedding, this couple took a twist on a classic wedding invitation, elegant calligraphy was mixed with a modern sans serif font and subtle snowflake pattern.


This client mixed rustic, and classic elements for their Aspen wedding with a custom antler monogram featuring the couple’s initials.


Whimsical typography and colorful floral details by Chelsea Petaja served as the fun and playful invite for an organic Colorado wedding at T Lazy 7 Ranch (see more here).


This classic black and white invitations suite featured a traditional monogram and set the tone for a black tie affair.

Modern Rustic Aspen Wedding


This wedding mixed modern, rustic and glamorous textures and the results made for one stunning wedding day. The bride donned an intricately beaded Inbal Dror dress wore petite flowers pinned throughout her hair, and carried a stunning wild spring bouquet by Bare Root Florals.

This wedding was held at a private residence in Aspen with a stunning green valley and spring wildflowers in bloom. To create the ceremony space, we had a custom walkway as well as a modern arbor. Simple wild grasses lined the walkway and made it seem like it had always been there. After the ceremony guests enjoyed elegant lounge vignettes with a stunning view of the valley for cocktail hour. Dinner was held in a classic canvas tent and featured long tables alternately decorated with blush and white floral centerpieces and floral garlands mixed with taper candles. Ghost chairs and modern gray paper goods added an unexpectedly clean and modern element to the wedding design. You can see more of this wedding right here on Oncewed.
