Real Wedding | Liz + Antony

Intimate…elegant…and romantic. These are the perfect words to describe Liz and Antony’s beautiful California wedding. Close friends and family joined the couple for an oceanside ceremony, followed by an amazing sit-down dinner at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort. Liz looked absolutely stunning in her strapless Rosa Clara gown. From the look in their eyes, you can tell Liz and Antony’s wedding day was a dream come true!

Liz + Antony | September 4th, 2011 | Dana Point, California

The ceremony

We chose the botanical garden at the St. Regis Monarch Beach in Dana Point. The private and intimate garden overlooked the stunning golf course and the Pacific Ocean. Forty of our closest family and friends flew from all over the world to be with us on our wedding day: Africa, Hong Kong, England, and Nevada. Our sunset wedding was truly romantic and full of love.

 

The reception

The wine cellar was the perfect venue for our evening reception. We celebrated with great food, great company, and great music. PS…How awesome was my cake?!!

The way Liz felt in her wedding dress

Beautiful. Loved. Happy.

Why Liz decided to sell her wedding dress

I work in apparel, so my wedding dress had to be PERFECT. I would love for a bride to know that this dress was not just purchased off the rack, it was purchased with love and the bride who wore it before her was truly happy.
