Hayley and Sam met at an Earth Day festival, they’re both vegan, and they love to go hiking together. It’s no surprise that their wedding day at Big Sur’s Ragged Point Inn was all about celebrating the beauty of Nature, while also celebrating the love they share for each other. If you’re looking for authentic wedding inspiration and ideas of how to show off your personalities on wedding day, this is the one for you!
Elyse Events helped H + S plan a day filled with music, nature-inspired color palettes, family, and DIY personal details. Every single aspect of our wedding was dedicated to something that had personally touched the couple’s lives. H was all about mixing the classic with the modern. She loves the striking beauty of the African king protea, so she chose to make that her focal bloom with gilded Italian ruscus surrounding it. She commissioned an Artisaire wax seal that featured a protea surrounded by their intials and featured it on the invitations and paper goods.
The guys got married on a pagoda nestled in a cliff overlooking a black sand beach. The color palette was bright but native to the land, plucked from the nature present in the landscape of the area. Complete with shades of purple, pink and turquoise they also were inspired by the free growing lavender in the area and the florist placed a sprig on each plate. Take a look at this lovely wedding and get inspired!
