Malibu Rocky Oaks Wedding Inspiration by Pura Soul Photography
I almost wish that we were butterflies and lived but three summer days — three such days with you I could fill with more delight then fifty common years could ever contain.
— John Keats

The true adventure of love is but one of the greatest journey's of life. To look ahead, whilst standing so close to that one person whom your soul speaks, is an adventure we wait a lifetime for. Knowing that should you fall you'll always have those hands to catch you allows you to truly soar through life. Our grandest adventure is, and always will be, love!

From Pura Soul Photography: "Tiers and cascading ruffles was a huge trend at the recent 2018 Bridal Fashion Week in New York, and it might be the perfect choice for an outdoor spring or summer wedding–as evidenced by this bridal portrait session styled by Joy Proctor. Photographed against the bright blue infinity pool at Malibu Rocky Oaks, this Musat Official Faith dress is not for the timid or shy. The gown’s exquisite hand embroidery leads your eye playfully up and down the bodice leading to a waistline of delicate floral detail. A plunging back side directs you to the dramatic layered train that puddles onto the floor in the most beautiful way imaginable. The main source of inspiration was the amazing haute couture Faith gown, which recently debuted in Musat’s Spring 2018 collection. The gown was accented by a pair of Elise by Joy Proctor for Bella Belle shoes. Nyrie Aitken pinned the bride’s hair back to show off the dramatic sheer top and opted to keep the makeup fresh with just a pop of pink lip to complement the decadence of the gown.

The table for this shoot was covered in florals by Plenty of Petals. Hints of pink and purple danced across the table. The Idea Emporium put together small hand cut place cards with handmade acorns and personalized salt and peppers for each setting. The gold flatware and candlesticks really took things up a notch and brought modern elegance to the party.

*This styled shoot was part of a workshop hosted by Donny Zavala Photography.
