Elizabeth & Kyle, Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach & Club



Elizabeth and Kyle’s June wedding at the Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach in Dana Point, California, was a stunning celebration of timeless elegance. Set against the picturesque backdrop of the California coast, their vision of a classic black and white wedding with formal touches came to life in every detail.

The ceremony was held overlooking the golf course and the ocean and was adorned with an iconic monogram framing the entrance to the aisle. Flowers by Cina crafted an ethereal floral aisle and arch that added a sense of romance and made for a classic and elegant wedding ceremony. Cocktail hour continued the theme with more playful black elements, including a mirrored seating chart and an impressive bar display. The dinner reception unfolded in a gorgeously transformed space overlooking the ocean, draped with airy white fabric and filled with abundant floral installations. Guests enjoyed a delicious meal featuring filet and lobster, perfectly complementing the elegant ambiance.

Entertainment and celebration followed seamlessly, with guests transitioning into a lively lounge space through a beautifully draped tunnel. An elevated DJ stage, a branded dance floor, and a striking champagne tower set the stage for an evening of joyous festivities. Bailey Studios captured the magic of the night with a live painting, while Ashley Rae Studio expertly documented each cherished moment through her photography and videography.

As the evening concluded, Elizabeth and Kyle danced under twinkling lights surrounded by their loved ones, marking the beginning of their married life together. Congratulations to the happy couple on a truly spectacular wedding day, filled with elegance, joy, and unforgettable memories!
