An Al Fresco Wedding Under the Malibu Sun

The premise for Nick and Jennifer’s wedding day? Gather their people from across the country for an unforgettable night in Malibu. The oceanside setting made for a dreamy locale, while the details – including each guests’ gold lantern – tied it all together. Ether & Smith told the story through her lens, and this West Coast love affair is bound to be your new favorite.

From the bride, Jennifer… Nick and I envisioned an intimate wedding with our family and close friends, and we wanted the mood to be light and fun for our guests. We wanted to be outdoors by the ocean so the Adamson House was the perfect fit. One of Nick’s best friends, Ryan was our officiant, and he struck both heartstrings and laughter during our ceremony. Each of our bridesmaids and groomsmen came from out of town and we were so happy to have them by our sides. Seeing our friends and family from many different places, together in one place, was incredible. Dancing and singing the night away with them under strings of lights is something we’ll never forget.

For planning brides, if you are on a limited budget with limited time, get help! I was lucky to have great friends and family who helped DIY much of the decor, my friend Charles was our DJ, and my friend Lisa managed the delivery of all of the cakes for our dessert bar. Emma from Ether & Smith was phenomenal – I cannot say enough good things about her; not only was she an amazing photographer but she helped us plan, had great recommendations, coordinated seamlessly with the other vendors, and made us feel like we were in great hands from the very beginning of the process. Even guests and the wedding party shared the positive sentiments.

Jennifer from Kelly Zhang Studio went above and beyond and made me feel so at ease, and Centia from Petal Floral swooped in last minute and wowed us when it came to flowers. Timothy at Flat Iron Catering was a true partner, not only in delivering a great meal, but also in providing candid feedback on the food choices, and total willingness to assist on the big day even outside of the kitchen.

We feel so thankful for the love and support of our family and friends and the great help from everyone involved in putting together our special day and could not imagine a more special and memorable experience.
