What made this shoot truly magical was the juxtaposition of a modern venue with organic beauty. The architecture of Hotel Seven4one is clean with strong accents; natural wood covered walls, sprawling greenery and rustic hardware set the scene. The styling and design of the florals and table settings seamlessly fit into the open space. The color pallet for the shoot was conceived from the colors of the ‘living wall’ inside the hotel’s courtyard; pewters, forest greens and pops of chartreuse.
The effortlessly chic bride, dons an elegant Stone Cold Fox dress, selected for its simple yet dramatic fit. Her makeup has a natural sun kissed feel with a berry lip and she wears a stunning collection of vintage turquoise jewelry.
This boutique hotel is gorgeous from every angle and is situated just steps away from one of the most enchanting beaches in Southern California. Photographer Kendal Riley of Ostara Photography, capitalized on the location and photographed the couple both inside and outside of the hotel. She finished the day with a few editorial shots down on the sand.
