Beach Chic Wedding ~ Frank & Rachel

The Sunset Restaurant, Malibu ~ February 13, 2010 
a Good Gracious! Wedding coordinated by Charley Izabella King

The gods smiled upon Frank and Rachel on February 13th, 2010 as they took their vows on a beautifully crisp and sunny day in Malibu.  The week leading up to their wedding was a completely different story.  Snow storms on the east coast threatened the arrivals of family and friends while on the west coast, constant torrential downpours threatened their dreams of a beautiful outdoor beach wedding.  They were a dream couple to plan for and I promised them that on their day it would be beautiful and it was.

Rachel was a stunning bride in her sparkling lace Maggie Sottero gown and check out those fabulous Manolo's that peeped out from beneath the hem.  That's right, they even work on the beach.  Sex and the City goes Malibu!!!

And look how handsome Frank and his groomsmen look in their suits from Elite Tuxedo in Westwood.  Yossi's attention to detail always insures a perfect fit.  Even when the bridal party is from out of town. 

Here's a fun idea for a favor that your guests will definately want to keep.  Pretty pashminas were tied (because it was windy!)  to the chairs for the ladies to use to keep warm during the beach ceremony.  It was a beautiful pop of color as well as a useful gift, especially on the coach ride back to their hotel.

Beautiful flowers were provided by Bobbe Vagell.  I love his attention to detail like the starfish nestled in the white chiffon at the bottom of the chuppa and the ring bearer's pillow made of mums.

Cupcakes are still a fun alternative to the traditional wedding cake. Frank and Rachel were having so much fun dancing to their sensational band, The Trip, that they didn't want to stop to cut the cupcakes. To get the "shot", I brought it to them on the dance floor and they loved it!

These were some of my favorite highlights from their lovely wedding that I coordinated during my wonderful time at Good Gracious!
