Every bride wishes for wonderful sunny skies for their wedding day – but we all know that is something totally beyond our control. So what to do when those sunny skies don’t appear? Just remember that the beauty of the occasion is what is most important, and embrace what mother nature has to offer. A perfect example is Gemma and Chris’ wedding day. Their plan was to be wed with a golden LA sunset as their backdrop. But after years of a drought, the skies decided to open up for their wedding day. While they didn’t get sunshine, they were treated to some beautiful atmospheric backdrops to Malibu Rocky Oaks that created a feeling of being in the clouds.  They grabbed the moments in between the rain and created a beautiful day they will always remember!

Featured Simple Wedding Inspiration from Nature

We always think the most beautiful inspiration for weddings comes from nature. After all, Mother Nature has done a wonderful job, hasn't she? In today's featured editorial, the creative team elected to work with a very simple, pared-down palette of green and brown, both usually found as the base colors in nature. Highlighting the beauty of these natural tones caused them to push the bounds of their creativity, resulting in a beautiful combination of simple, natural designs with a modern aesthetic.
