L’Auberge Del Mar Wedding | Chris and Nicole

An intimate seaside wedding dripping with romance and joy. Design by Emily Smiley Fine Weddings and florals by Karen Tran.

Nicole is a classic beauty. Chris is a handsome charmer. They’re both incredibly cute and make the perfect pair when they’re playing board games together or riding their tandem Schwinn around town. I wouldn’t be surprised if they spend their married days meandering through the park, holding hands and licking vanilla cones while sunshine bounces off their cheeks and an entourage of onlookers cranes their necks to get a sneak peek of Mr. and Mrs. Adorable.

Chris and Nicole had an intimate wedding with only 40 of their closest friends and family, which meant that they could put every ounce of their heart and soul into every classic detail. Emily Smiley did an amazing job designing and coordinating this soft and elegant seaside wedding at L’Auberge Del Mar, and with the keen eye of Karen Tran working the floral design and Platinum Pro providing the chic rentals, we got work with a dream team of vendors to make this wedding a smash hit!
