We are hanging out with our dear friends and crazy talented photographers, The McCunes, for one of the more luxury filled days we've ever had here on SMP. The kind of weddings that you see and just wonder in awe at A. how awesome it was for the guests that got to attend and B. what it must feel like to a TOTAL princess (or prince) for a day. There is the stunning bride and her cute groom (and maybe even cuter pup, Stella), BUT there is also a crystal clear dining table filled with antique roses, chandeliers draped in greenery, seriously the most beautiful antique inspired cake you've ever seen, OH AND Ali's mom surprised the couple with Lebanese Dancers who entertained the guests while the musicians played Arabic Music. Then, she provide donuts as a late night snack. I think Ali's mom and I are already best friends. So enjoy this gorgeous day then head over to insta where there is so much more from McCune Photography!
Ali & Colin met back in high school when her best friend was dating his twin brother. Years later, as Ali and her best friend were always close, Ali and Colin had the chance to reconnect and fell in love.
After several years together, Colin surprised Ali by proposing to her with a room filled with roses and candles while staying in Monarch Beach Resort. The inspiration for their wedding included an elegant & etherial garden feel.
They both wanted to include special touches to their day by including their dog, Stella. She was part of their first look photos together and of course a groom's cake was made that looked just like her.
Their ceremony took place at a church nearby. After the ceremony, guests headed back to the private estate to enjoy cocktail hour and the reception.
It was beautifully tented and full of lush greenery draping off crystal chandeliers while beautiful garden roses added that special touch to all the tables and decor.
The head table was perhaps the most spectacular design moment ... a glass table dressed with glass chargers, linen napkins and soft pink ribbons. Each place-setting had a laser cut golden place card and the florals that lined the table felt romantic and yet modern at the same time. The result was incredible.
Ali's mom surprised the couple with Lebanese Dancers who entertained the guests while the musicians played Arabic Music. Later, Sidecar Doughnuts were the final surprise as a late night snack for everyone to enjoy.
