Real Wedding | Hayley + Greg

Calling all lovers of lace and Spanish vintage – this wedding from La Jolla, California is wedding heaven!  Exposed wooden beams and warm vibrant colors throughout their catholic ceremony…stunning black lace dresses for the bridal party…and oh my goodness the decor…I am such a fan of decor details and textures that perfectly compliment the bride’s dress – so lets count the ways, shall we?  Candles, wood accents, ivory lace, golds and coppers, vintage table pieces, crosses, Spanish tiles, greenery, succulents, and ivory flowers…if only every day could be as divine as this!

Hayley + Greg | September 10, 2011 | Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Church + La Jolla Country Club, La Jolla, California

The Ceremony
Mary Star of the Sea is a beautiful, historic catholic chapel in downtown La Jolla.  The interior of the church is absolutely gorgeous and quaint at the same time.  I’ve wanted to get married there every since I was a little girl.  It also fit perfectly with the Spanish Vintage theme for our wedding.

The Reception
The La Jolla Country Club is located on a hill, with breathtaking views of the ocean.  We used two of the rooms, which allowed us to separate the “lounge” area from the dining area.  In line with our Spanish Vintage theme, we flooded the place with candles, chunky wood accents, ivory lace, golds, vintage table pieces, crosses, tile pieces, greenery, succulents, ivory flowers, and copper Milagros as napkin treatments to name a few.  

Hayley’s Dress Search
I knew I wanted the Monique Lhuillier Scarlet dress before I even met my husband.  While living in San Francisco, I saw it in the front window of a bridal boutique.  It’s exactly what I had always envisioned as my wedding dress.  Once I was engaged, I called around and found it at M Bride in La Jolla.  I didn’t try or look at any other dresses….it was a perfect fit.

How Hayley Felt in Her Wedding Dress
Sophisticated, Sexy, Classic

Why Hayley Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
I decided to sell my wedding dress because I feel that letting another bride wear and enjoy it is much more productive than sticking it in a closet for years to come.
