Paulina & Marcus, Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort & Club



Paulina and Marcus are the epitome of happiness. From the moment we met (with Paulina’s adorable parents too!) I instantly fell in love and crossed my fingers and toes they’d move forward with us! When I received the news, I was so eager to get started with the planning! They had chosen the Monarch Beach Resort (hello, already great taste!) and from there we started contracting a marvelous vendor team! Every email, meeting and phone call was cheerful on the other end. Paulina and Marcus literally had permanent smiles throughout the year of planning and this translated to the wedding day. Gia, the bridal concierge for the day even said, “I think this is the happiest bride, I’ve ever met!” We all agreed, Paulina literally just exuberated joy! We were thrilled she was so excited and also elated that the overall design was exactly the way she envisioned (thanks 3Petals!). The elegance of this wedding was truly executed beyond perfection. From the draping florals at ceremony to the pure white reception, there wasn’t an element missed. We are so so sad this day is over but look forward to a lasting friendship with the Skinner’s! Enjoy these breathtaking photos by Katrina Jayne! Ps – Katrina, you truly captured every emotion and detail! So thankful for your passion to ensure couples are able to relive their wedding day through photos!
