If you ever needed evidence that a beach wedding can be utterly glam, today’s black tie affair in Orange County has it in spades! Tanya and Andrey’s chic coastal wedding from Vitaly M Photography is the epitome of Southern California style, with the most stunning views! This couple loves to spend time at the beach together so it made perfect sense to celebrate their wedding day with an intimate coastal wedding! They started their big day at the Blue Lantern Inn, with a panoramic view of the harbor and cliffs at Dana Point. The New England-inspired beach resort inspired their crisp white and neutral palette, punctuated with hints of sparkle from Tanya’s statement earrings and jeweled heels.
The Penthouse balcony set the scene for their emotional First Look. Andrey watched the glittering waters of the harbor as his beautiful bride approached him and tapped him to turn around. The emotional look on his face as he saw Tanya for the first time is exactly what every bride hopes for on her wedding day. The seaside terrace of Cannons Seafood Grill served as the setting for their ceremony and reception, with a gorgeous background of crashing waves against the rocks. The draped arbor where they exchanged their vows was transformed into their Sweetheart Table as the terrace ceremony turned into the dinner party. Their reception details perfectly reflected the beachy elegance of their big day, with starfish favors and sand dollar escort cards nestled in beds of sand. Centerpieces of peach and cream roses were adorned with lace edged escort cards. Dusty miller and nautical rope knots adorned the florals arrangements, echoing the bouquets carried by Tanya’s bridesmaids. The bride herself carried a bouquet of ruffled white garden roses, as delicate and ethereal as her A-line chiffon ball gown.
