Pelican Hill Resort Wedding | Lexie and Erik

What an amazing day we had with Lexie and Erik’s Pelican Hill Resort wedding in Newport Coast! It’s one of our favorite places for so many reasons, and the entire day could not have gone any more smoothly; largely in part to Gloria of Grand Engagements who coordinated and worked with Lexie across two time zones to design this elegant and modern wedding.

As this was a destination wedding for both Lexie and Erik’s families, one of their largest priorities was that they created an elegant setting for their reception for all who made the trip from Kentucky. With fantastic rentals from Luxe Event Rentals and Marquee Event Decor their room for only 25 guests was just stunning! Capping it all off were the ever-incredible florals from Nisie’s Enchanted Florist and added so much to an already beautiful room.

We were so fortunate to have time with Lexie and Erik both after their ceremony and also to sneak them out right at sunset to get that beautiful California glow we love so much. Wearing not one but two gorgeous gowns from famed designer Ines Di Santo, Lexie left no head unturned as both she and Erik went with us around the grounds at Pelican Hill. Erin and I simply had the best time getting to know these two and we were so honored to be one of the few to witness their day!

We’ve been bursting with anticipation to share with you some of our favorites, we hope you enjoy!
