This gorgeous al fresco wedding at L’Auberge Del Mar stole my heart. Alyssa and Julio postponed it from 2020 to 2021 due to Covid and it was absolutely worth the wait. They had so many beautiful details and were incredibly joyful throughout the day. See all of the eye catching moments and decor below!
Alyssa and Julio had a custom invitation suite which featured an illustration of L’Auberge. Both wore Louboutin shoes – a fun detail! They were both so eager to see each other for the first look, but were very calm in their separate getting ready spaces.
First Look and Portraits
Julio’s expression during the first look is precious! He held his smile for so long. Once the couple had enough time to soak up their first look, we took portraits around the property before joining their bridal party on the Pacific Terrace.
Wedding at L’Auberge Del Mar
Their wedding ceremony was held on the Pacific Terrace at L’Auberge. It overlooks the entire backside of the property and has ocean views. It’s truly stunning! This space would later be “flipped” during cocktail hour to be transformed into the reception – but more on that later. Alyssa and Julio’s ceremony design featured a house-like structure draped and covered in smilax. They walked through it to get to the vow area which featured candles and floral arrangements on acrylic pedestals.
Alyssa and Julio smiled through their entire ceremony. It was incredibly adorable. You could truly tell how eager they were to have their ceremony after such a long postponement!
Reception on the Pacific Terrace
The reception was also held on the Pacific Terrace after the space had been “flipped.” The amazing catering, floral, and planning teams worked together to transform the space into an al fresco dining experience that guests were wowed by. Alyssa and Julio kicked off the evening with a first dance followed by toasts, dinner, and an after party. Their evening was truly remarkable and I am so honored to have documented their day.
