We just loved learning Matthew and Nicole’s story! They met at a country bar and fell in love over dancing, music and quick wit. They are both smart, sweet, funny and so cute together. Their wedding day started at L’Auberge del Mar as they got ready with their wedding parties. Nicole had a beautiful flower crown and the bridesmaids dresses were amazing. Everything was a Hawaiian theme and their planner pulled it together so perfectly. Nicole also wore this beautiful palm tree pendant, and I loved her low back dress, so dainty! The guys had way too much fun during the getting ready. They hung out at the bar and they rode bikes in the valet area of L’Auberge. Perfect for a Del Mar wedding!
The ceremony was upstairs with a view of the ocean. The Hawaiian theme continued with beautiful tropical flowers, palm leaves and pineapples. They didn’t have a first look and so Matthew saw his bride for the first time as she walked down the aisle, so special! Their officiant told a lot of the story of how they met and how he encouraged their relationship to bloom. After that the two shared their vows which were just beautiful and filled in all the rest of their love story.
Cocktail hour was fun with food, drinks and photo time for the couple. The amazing planner and staff “flipped” the ceremony site to the dinner site. The decor was just so spot on. They did a grand entrance and a choreographed first dance which was so well done. Their friends and family gave beautiful toasts that were just so meaningful and sweet.
After dinner, the reception moved downstairs. Nicole switched to her dancing shoes and the dancing got started. The cake continued the pineapple theme and the dessert bar looked fabulous. We hope you enjoy this sweet couple and their beautiful Del Mar wedding!
