From Hong Kong all the way to Monterey…Angelina and Howard knew that California would be the perfect location for their destination wedding. With their destination set, they pulled together a few simple ideas that we just love: a gorgeous bridal bouquet composed of vibrant garden roses and ferns, a stunning Claire Pettibone dress (find similar styles for sale on Once Wed here!), and touches of romantic florals added to Angelina’s hair.
From the bride: “My love story with Howard begun under the most unlikely circumstances. We both love playing tennis and Howard is a competitive tennis player, and during our first tennis date, I was injured trying to chase one of his “Nadal” shots. Howard then started accompanying me to doctor visits and our love blossomed through his care.
Both Howard and I love sunshine and traveling. For our first long trip, we spent ten days in California, where I took Howard to share my high school and university memories and experience. After this trip, I knew we were inseparable so it made sense to go back to where our love story began.”
