Katie and Matt’s Monarch Beach Resort wedding was something out of a lush garden fairytale. Elegant yet fun, simple yet stunning, really everything you could want on your wedding day! We’re absolutely swooning over every gorgeous detail, and we know you will too! Thank you to Josh Elliott Photography for capturing this day so perfectly! Keep scrolling to see our favorite moments – we promise you won’t be disappointed!

Katie looked like an absolute GODDESS on her big day. She chose a classic and simple hair and makeup combination to accent her stunner of a wedding gown – a fitted, low back dress with the prettiest lace detail at the bottom! Paired with a lush, garden-inspired bouquet, this bridal look was seriously off the charts! Katie was absolutely stunning from head to toe! With bridesmaids in mismatched blush gowns, the color palate fit the entire vision perfectly! 

Ok, get your tissues ready… Katie and Matt decided to share their first look and read their vows to each other before the ceremony. Safe to say this moment completely melted our hearts! 

Katie and Matt tied the knot on a beautiful, HOT summer day (literally, record breaking heat!!). Amidst the So Cal heat wave, guests were drawn to the views and a ceremony that highlighted the prettiest floral arch! To Be Designed crafted a stunning mix of bright pale peach florals with pops of dreamy, blush and white roses. We were so excited to see these two officially become husband and wife!! 

Following the ceremony, a cocktail hour welcomed guests with fun, friends, and a fabulous lounge! Guests were then treated to an alfresco garden party dinner full of the dreamiest details we’ve ever seen: golden rich tones, whimsical florals, a stunning sweetheart table, and breathtaking views! We love the mix of rounds with crisp, white linens and white farmhouse tables. Complete with velvet napkins and gold details, this reception was the perfect combination of whimsy and luxe!

Obsessed? We thought so! We fall even more in love with this summer garden wedding every time we look through it again. Truly, a day to remember! Congratulations Katie and Matt! Here’s to happily ever after!!
