St Regis Monarch Beach Wedding with 5 Star Weddings and Beautiful Day Photography

The St Regis Monarch Beach was the perfect destination for this couple and their intimate wedding. Planning from a distance is a breeze with the help of 5 star Weddings. The dream team included Beautiful Day Photography and of course Design Visage.

Most do not know about the many locations at the St Regis to have a ceremony and recepetion. There are so many more lovely places other than the amazing ballrooms. Our lovely couple had their ceremony in the botanical gardens and then the small dinner reception in the Wine Room.

Orange Turtle Photography at Rancho Del Cielo in Malibu

A few months ago I received a call from a past bride, planning her 5 year vow renewal. It is quite the honor that she would call us back to be part of her special day. Even more amazing was that her hair and makeup artist was still part of the Design Visage team! The bride pulled together her favorite wedding professionals to enjoy the perfect day at Rancho Del Cielo in the Malibu mountains with Orange Turtle Photography.

The bride felt so confident with our work she opted not to have a hair and makeup Preview. We got the bridal party ready at the Sheraton Delfina.
