casual, summer garden wedding {Paige & Justin} monarch cove inn, capitola, ca

Laid back, summer garden wedding by the sea is totally this couple’s thing. Paige and Justin met at UC Santa Cruz and got engaged at a the Santa Cruz lighthouse (see their engagement session) all not far from their wedding venue, Monarch Cove Inn, a seaside hidden gem. So when it came time to plan their wedding, they wanted to throw one seriously pretty and fun party--the epitome of all things casual elegance nothing short of chic, happy, and fun! I’m talking perfectly made DYI signs, a welcome table for guests containing sunscreen, parasols and fresh squeezed lemonade, the baby’s breath that donned the ceremony’s wood arch, to the white and yellow florals of roses, peonies and hydrangeas, Justin’s ice cold homespun craft brew, fun garden games including corn-hole, a yummy cookie bar and the symbol “&” peppered throughout the decor signifying the joining of two families.  And that’s just for starters… What really made the day special was the connection that Paige and Justin share not only with each other but with those around them. Paige and Justin, you created an oasis of casual beauty and love for you to celebrate your amazing day with your friends and family. Perfection! Enjoy! xoxo, Stacey
