So, if you've been thinking about having a beach wedding in Southern California, my advice? Do it! You won't regret it! Since Illuminated Events has embarked on it’s new journey as an all-inclusive “one stop shop”, we’ve been able to do some of those beautiful SoCal weddings on the beach that I’ve always envisioned in my head.
Coming from rural Virginia, taking the leap into becoming a full blown California girl has definitely been an adventure. However, I do have to say, coming from someone who would travel 4 hours to get to the beach, to now being able to hop in my car on a whim and be there in 10 minutes is pretty amazing! In Virginia, there is a brief window of opportunity to have a beach wedding, May to September, thats it! Anything before that or after that and you better wear a parka over your dress or you will freeze your butt off!
Gorgeous, isn’t it?!
I think one of my favorite things about beach weddings are the open tents with chiffon draping, the soft romantic lighting and of course the sound of waves crashing in the background. They are so romantic and always look classy. Add a chandelier and you’ve gone from simple romance to utter elegance.
