Wedding Wednesday

December is the most popular time of year to get engaged, according to The Knot.


And what could be better than a destination wedding to somewhere that is always beautiful?!


I'm talking about Santa Monica, California, and specifically the super glamorous Fairmont Miramar Hotel. Doesn't it have an old Hollywood vibe??


An outdoor wedding is almost guaranteed to be perfection under the palms and the Fairmont's unique fig tree.

Can't you just imagine this twisty, centuries-old tree strung with twinkle lights?!

An indoor reception can also be elegant in a gorgeous setting like the Fairmont Miramar.

These magenta table linens and tall florals make the room. And I am such a sucker for Chiavari chairs... Worth the splurge!

Studio DIY
Depending on the time of day and level of formality, a piece of fruit might make a sweet place setting.

This gorgeous flower bouquet includes figs and berries! It's a nice nod to the giant fig tree in the courtyard at the Fairmont Miramar and to other aspects of the area's history. Mixing magenta, pink, and orange makes the color story more interesting.

J. Crew
It would be so fun to let bridesmaids choose their dress from a store like J. Crew and have a mix of colors and styles. Especially since the Fairmont Miramar is so close to the beach...

Other local attractions include Knott's Berry Farm, an amusement park on the site of the former berry farm that made the famous jams and preserves.

... which would make these tiny jars of jam such a cute idea for a wedding favor.

My own (2nd) wedding day was the happiest day of my life!!! And it's so fun to think back to that celebration.
