Christmas on the Beach Engagement Shoot

jessica claire engagement shootIn the spirit of the holidays we couldn’t help but fall in love with this inspiration shoot captured by our talented friend Jessica Claire. This soon-to-be-wed couple got snuggled up in the cool California air on the beaches of Laguna to capture what would turn into a fantastic Christmas card (or so we hope) and a magical engagement shoot.

Designer and planner, Lindye Galloway wanted to create an elopement setting befitting of a California Christmas – mission accomplished!  “The ceremony had a simple elegance with a custom chandelier made out of ornaments suspended above the couple, embracing the ever-popular ombre style.”holiday engagement shootsFrom ceremony to “reception” and even a snuggle station in a cave, no detail was left undone.  How they managed to get a Christmas tree onto the beach without incident is pure holiday magic!  I wonder if they surprised each other with real gifts under that tree?christmas weddingsWhat a great time it must have been to produce a shoot so festive!  Especially knowing the bride and groom are getting married next year and what a gift this will end up becoming for them!

But back to the decor – when frolicking in the sand when finished, the duo settled down at a dinner table built for two!winter wedding ideasFor dessert, the couple delighted in a two tiered ruffle cake and two jumbo cupcakes tying in the theme of what winter in California is really like.
