Majestic views for a Malibu Rocky Oaks Estate Vineyard wedding create a breathtaking backdrop for Lauren and Casey's spectacular fall dream. This wedding is a home run. Between the venue, handsome MLB Pitcher groom, a stunning bride and amazing photos captured by Chris Schmitt - we are smitten. As the couple exchanged their vows and the sun set over the Santa Monica Mountains, Charley King of Bluebell Events took over the planning, design and overall execution of the couple's wedding details with precision. With a venue that allows for a grand entrance via a helicopter every moment leads to opulence and grandeur.
Adrenaline Rush Proposal
It is was only natural that Lauren and Casey selected a mountaintop wedding. Their proposal story even takes us to heights untold before at Strictly Weddings. Casey popped the ultimate question on a skydiving adventure. As if Lauren's adrenaline was not pumping enough, Casey brought into view - thousands of feet above ground - a sign reading "Will you Marry Me? " Her only answer was teary-eyed "YES!"
A Home Run First Look
Casey's 'first look', was one of sheer awe as he gazed at Lauren's beauty when she descended the estate's winding staircase in her figure hugging Julie Vino gown and Badgley Mischka shoes. Casey, being a pitcher for the Washington Nationals, a baseball theme wedding struck home. From a home plate for guests to sign to Lauren's Dad's toast joking about "hitting a homer" and not "striking out," the camaraderie of family and friends was evident. Bluebell Events was meticulous in the blending of luxury and baseball details.
Malibu Rocky Oaks Estate Vineyard
Taking a deeper dive into the highlights of this perfect location, it is not only an ideal venue for Southern California weddings, but also those planning an unforgettable destination wedding. Lauren and Casey reveled in the appeal of Malibu Rocky Oaks sitting at an elevation of over 2,000 feet. Nothing compares to the property's 360-degree view available for a "ceremony in the round" surrounded by family and friends.
After Lauren and Casey said their "I Do's," their party moved into the venue's stunning Tuscan villa indulging in the vineyard's own wines over dinner procured by Colette's Catering. Silver chargers and white décor graced the long dining tables under the expansive villa trestle and were highlighted by lush white orchid and hydrangea arrangements bunched in mirrored and crystal boxes from Petals by Xavi.
Family and Friends
During the evening, guests enjoyed the estate's astonishing views by the infamous infinity pool. Former and current teammates of the groom, played with the idea of jumping in during the photo session. Definitely keeping the photographer on his toes. Lauren's bridesmaids wore The Dessy Group's twist wrap dresses in Graphite, which were sophisticated adding a perfect mix and match feel by the designs versatility.
