alison & daysun’s stylish santa monica wedding!

what do you get when you have an ultra stylish couple, that doesn’t mind breaking a little bit of traditional wedding rules to make their day unique? you get a simply modern weddings dream come true!

during my initial meeting with alison and daysun, i remember the non-stop laughter when daysun mentioned how funny it was to see alison and i taking charge with chatting over the wedding details! you see…alison is a television style correspondent, and also has a great lifestyle blog ali on the go…so she is used to a fast paced schedule filled with tons of detail planning. so meetings with the two of us “type-a planners” was absolutely hilarious!

what i loved most about alison & daysun is that they stayed true to what mattered to them most vs. what “trends” dictate weddings should be. they love hosting dinner parties with friends and wanted their wedding to be an intimate get together with friends. “personal, lively, and fun” were the three words they used to describe their wedding vision…so decor was kept to a chic minimal, loews whipped up a droolworthy menu, and tony and ian with redshoe rocked it out with some fabulous tunes. typical beachfront ceremony? of course not! the ceremony was at the beautiful wayfarer’s chapel. white wedding gown for alison? um, not even close! she wore a stunning custom pale peach lloyd klein gown with some killer rene caovilla heels with sparkly soles! boring wedding toasts? i don’t think so! their friends are just as fun as they are, so instead of toasts we had performances with singing and laughter. speaking of performances, alison had us help her surprise daysun with a sweet sing-a-long of “say a little prayer” before they were seated for dinner…that was so sweet! traditional wedding cake or trendy cupcakes? nope! try yummy fabulousness that is the mini bundt cakes from kiss my bundt bakery. all these special details made their day memorable, and i can still picture them laughing with friends and dancing it up until the lights came on…all with a look of absolute love and joy in their eyes. this is why i absolutely love what i do!

another major cool part to the wedding was working with michele m. waite, who alison and daysun found from reading my photo friday feature on her work. michele was an absolute blast to work with…and the photos? amazingness!

David M. Perkins - As the father of the groom (Thank all the goddesses that Daysun looks more like his mother!), I have to say that of all the weddings I’ve attended over the years, this was not only the most stylish–but one of the most relaxed and comfortable as well. Kudos to everyone involved!
