We always love a couple that isn’t scared to bring in lots of color into their wedding, and Sejin and Mike’s intimate Malibu mountaintop wedding was just that, adorned in colors such as shades of lavender, blush pinks, green, sage green, and gold.
Considering the couple lived in New York did the majority of their planning from afar, they entrusted our guidance to help choose the best vendors and options for their big day. The biggest decision was the venue and the couple actually booked their venue without having ever seen the location in person, but absolutely LOVED it when they first saw it during their planning trip in Southern California. Saddlerock’s Chateau Le Dome was the perfect location for all their guests who traveled from all around the world to take part in their 80 person celebration.
The overall concept of the wedding was to bring a watercolor design into the wedding with lots of colors. The couple’s custom invitations were hand drawn with watercolor and digitalized with little details of the couple, their wedding and surrounding interests. We brought on our talented #fontgirl (illustrator and hand lettering extraordinaire) to help create the details of the wedding. An escort installation with all the couple’s favorite places in the world were drawn onto a watercolor map, while escort cards were written on clear plexiglass pieces and hung from the wall. The couple listed all their favorite parks in New York for the table names and each were hand drawn on canvas with watercolor flowers to match their invitations.
It was such a beautiful wedding that overlooked the Malibu landscape along with clear skies that were filled with stars to light the dance floor.
Sejin and Mike, you took a lot of risks and trusts while planning this wedding and we are so thankful to have worked alongside you to make this destination wedding for all your guests come true! We hope to see you back in So Cal sometime soon! Congrats again and again. We love you both!
