Real Event: Ventura Beach Celebration on Style Me Pretty Living

Real Event: Ventura Beach Celebration on Style Me Pretty Living

We are so pleased that Amy and Mark’s Elegant Ventura Beach Party was recently featured on Style Me Pretty Living! After Amy and Mark tied the knot in an intimate wedding at Cavallo Point in San Francisco last July, the celebration didn’t end there. Next was a gorgeous, casual beachside party hosted by Amy‘s parents in September with good food, great friends, and extended family. Oh, and amazing style obviously! Every last detail was planned by Amy and her talented mom which made the entire affair even more special. The gorgeous beach venue was at a family friend’s beautiful home, offering the perfect setting with sweeping ocean views.The delicious food was not only inspired by Amy‘s mom’s Italian background combined with fresh produce and fruit from Amy‘s childhood home of Ventura County, it cooked by Amy‘s mom. The fabulous centerpieces by friend Kelly Oshiro were comprised of citrus, succulents, and greenery from Amy’s parents’ ranch. When it all came together, the results were stunning! We are able to admire the beauty, thanks to the lovely photographs by Joel Serrato and the fabulous feature by Style Me Pretty Living. Take a look and soak up all the pretty, especially the citrus and pink color palette, and Moscow Mule bar!
