Malibu Wedding Inspiration Featuring A Ruffled Pink Dress

Malibu Wedding Inspiration With A Ruffled Pink Dress | Pura Vida Photography 12

Do you remember when Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel got married? Not usually one for gossip magazines, I remember seeing that cover with Jessica’s plush pink wedding dress, how wild even then! Flash forward six years later and pink gowns are everywhere, my bride friends are asking for “colors only please!” and I nearly took the plunge for a few blue dresses myself.

Today’s styled shoot is for those ladies looking to spin the color wheel. An alternative in color, beyond romantic in style, and a little provocative, this ruffled Musat gown is for the daring bride.  The sheer sexy top is contrasted by incredible cascading pink ruffles on the skirt. The high low hem shows a little leg, so really, what is this gown missing? (nothing, in our opinion).

Malibu Rocky Oaks serves as the perfect potential venue for a modern bride still looking for opulent romance. High in the hills off the coast, we can imagine a dreamy black tie – or rather, creative black tie – event beside the luxe infinity pool. (And we’d like an invite as a finder’s fee, please!)

Photographed against the bright blue infinity pool at Malibu Rocky Oaks, this Musat Official Faith dress is not for the timid or shy. The gown’s exquisite hand embroidery leads your eye playfully up and down the bodice leading to a waistline of delicate floral detail. A plunging back side directs you to the dramatic layered train that puddles onto the floor in the most beautiful way imaginable.

The gown was accented by a pair of Elise by Joy Proctor for Bella Belle shoes.

Nyrie Aitken pinned the bride’s hair back to show off the dramatic sheer top and opted to keep the makeup fresh with just a pop of pink lip to complement the decadence of the gown. We couldn’t be more thrilled with how it came together, and we hope it will inspire brides to be bold for their spring and summer weddings.

The dinner table was designed and styled by Joy Proctor, with assistant from Camilla Loving. Beautiful mixed arrangements from Plenty of Petals lined the center of the table. Gold flatware, dramatic candlesticks and a dusty purple velvet table linen made for a jaw-dropping setting.

The linen fabric place cards had calligraphy by The Written Word, accompanied by handmade acorns and salt & pepper holders for each guest. The small touches nearby a place setting can really make your guests feel special.
