Wendy + Mike: A Fun and Playful West Coast Wedding by Lili Durkin Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

Our favorite way to brighten up a Monday? Pretty flowers, of course! And it doesn’t get much more cheerful than the tropical-inspired bouquets and centerpieces Twig Floral Design whipped up for Wendy and Mike’s playful California wedding. Special thanks to Lili Durkin for sharing the day with us! What follows is just a snippet of the pretty—be sure to check out our full gallery for the complete set of details!

Wendy and Mike met on Match.com! After ten months of dating, Mike proposed during Wendy’s birthday week. He planned a slew of fun surprises, including the Newport Harbor cruise where he officially popped the question. They said ‘I do’ at Pacific Grove’s famous Lover’s Point Park, which overlooks the Monterey Peninsula. Though it rained through most of their ceremony (oh no!), the clouds finally cleared up as the couple was saying their vows.

“[Wendy] never really had the fairytale thoughts that many young girls have about their wedding,” says Cheryl Cox, a family friend and owner of the venue where the couple held their reception. “It was more about sharing this special occasion with family and friends.” At the Perry House reception, guests mingled over wood-fired pizza, passed appetizers, and a delightful cupcake and candy bar. Keeping with the day’s colorful decor scheme, succulent and mason jar centerpieces were scattered throughout the space.

Though Wendy and Mike admittedly didn’t focus on the specifics of their big day, the special details that depict their love, lives, and personalities ended up working their way in—and we love that organic way of wedding planning. Thanks again to Lili Durkin for sharing the day with us! You can see even more details in our full gallery. Want to see more weddings with color schemes like this?

    I have not been so excited about colors in a long time. The colors in this wedding have to be my favorite so far for 2013! The grey and coral are so awesome. This wedding was very well done. Great job and congratulations!

    The colors here are great. I actaully really like the combination of the bright coral and the accent of black and white (on the banner). It gives this spring wedding more sophistication. I also really like the boutonnieres :)
