A Malibu Rocky Oaks wedding is always one for the books. For good reason: the vistas on display at this property always take my breath away. This is the reason why the venue has become so legendary here in Los Angeles – and dare I say, the world over. There is nothing like it!
The bride and groom, Emma and Michel, lived in France for the initial part of planning, then moved to San Francisco. Wisely, they booked me over a year in advance, and had ample time to carefully curate and construct their dream day. They had many guests flying internationally, and were able to have their wedding on a weekday, which made things even more seamless to plan.
The Wedding Vendors
The florist, Plenty of Petals, nailed the romantic, vineyard-inspired florals, Signature Party Rentals provided the chairs and tables, napkins were by La Tavola, and Bright rentals provided the rose gold silverware. Other vendors included Vox DJs, Jacob Jurado (officiant), Tim and Co videography, Jamie Cakes, and Silver Service Catering. The vibe was soft blush, rich organic greens, and French country furniture with rich wood texture.
The Planning Process- a Weekday Wedding!
While Emma and Michel lived abroad and then in San Francisco, we stayed in close touch. Because many guests were flying in from outside of L.A., this was a destination wedding for many of them, and the couple chose to have the event on a weekday. Not my first, actually – they’re a lot of fun! Also, some vendors and venues have cost-effective pricing for weekday events. They made sure guests knew well ahead of time when the event would take place, so they couljd request vacation days, book flights, and make overall “life” arrangements for the event.
