Poppies and Perfection at the Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa
Nestled amidst the tranquil beauty of Southern California, the Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa provides a breathtaking backdrop for a wedding like no other. This elegant wedding inspiration captured by Claude Nine Photography was a harmonious blend of timeless sophistication and vibrant charm, with a striking black and white color scheme that exuded both classic glamour and contemporary chic. Against this monochromatic canvas, the vivid poppy flowers served as striking accents, infusing the celebration with bursts of passionate red and a sense of vitality.
The ceremony was decorated with a red and white floral creation, we love the way the arch mimics the architecture feature of the venue. The reception was a mixture of classic and unique details. We particularly are obsessed with the fun “Stitched with Love” seating chart featuring hand embroidered poppies. The tables were draped with white linen and juxtaposed with black cane chairs – making the moment whimsical and romantic.
The bride wore a modern white ballgown with a plunging neckline and high slit. She paired her look with her hair in a low bun and a bridal bouquet with bold poppies and other red-toned florals. The groom matched the classic vibes of the wedding by wearing a White Shawl Lapel Dinner Jacket with black pants and bow tie. We love the way this look balances boldness and luxury all in one.
