St. Moritz, Switzerland Wedding Style – Barbara and Tim

What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? Our love for the outdoors and mountains really inspired us in the style and location we chose. We loved using earthy colors for our invitation sets, welcome notes and even had welcome macaroon boxes from Spruengli and customized Havaianas sandals! We paid a lot of attention to detail and wanted to make everyone feel like they were the most important guest there!

Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? I think the best decision we made was to have the wedding in St. Moritz – this was the best location for us to incorporate our love for amazing food, champagne and wine! St. Moritz has the most breathtaking surroundings with its mountains and lakes and fit perfectly with what we wanted and let us really experience a once in a lifetime celebration.

Wedding color palette? Purple and earthy colors.

Rustic Elegant Malibu Wedding at Saddlerock Ranch – Michelle and Jon

Rustic Elegant Malibu Wedding at Saddlerock Ranch – Michelle and Jon

What a wedding we have today! This Malibu, California wedding of Michelle and Jon took place at the incredibly beautiful Saddlerock Ranch and was photographed by the one and only Joy Marie Photography . What a combination! We’re proud to call Joy Marie a member of our World’s Best Wedding Photographers Hotlist as well as a dear friend, so seeing the work she’s been creating for couples like Michelle and Jon is such a treat! Read on to learn more about all the wonderful wedding details…

Rustic Elegant Malibu Wedding at Saddlerock Ranch – Michelle and Jon

The Goals: Michelle and Jon’s outdoor wedding at Malibu’s Saddlerock Ranch was a masterpiece of rustic elegance and an event focused on FUN for everyone in attendance. “We wanted our wedding to be fun for our guests! We picked a great DJ who spun vinyl, a great caterer for “foodies” – we had hibiscus tea and peppermint thyme spritzers on the way in and warm churros and hot chocolate on the way out. We had a photo booth for people to show their spunky side and of course, a full bar – all the trappings of a great party!”

The Design: Michelle and Jon chose deep, rich wedding colors like navy, burgundy, fuchsia and orange to contrast the greenery all around them and they used the 100 year old Oak tree that they were married under as inspiration for much of the wedding’s decor design. The wedding invitations and paper goods were a really special addition to the day. They were designed by Kristi Rice of Momental Design based on her Vintage Lacy Tree Collection , but personalized just for Michelle and Jon. You can see more of the samples Kristi and her team created for Michelle and Jon during their design process here and more of the final invitation, ceremony program, menu and seating card designs here .

During the reception, guests found their seats via their adorable mini-succulent garden wedding favors. “The succulents were native to Los Angeles and also doubled as our table assignments so it was an environmentally-conscious choice which I loved. Our invitation designer made lollipop-like sticks with a floral design on the front and our guests’ names on the back – they neatly popped into the rock garden and off they went!” Long wooden dinner tables lined with flowers from Hollyflora and lit from above by twinkling lights in the trees, set the scene for a family style wedding feast!

The Look: Michelle wanted a simple and elegant bridal look, and she found the perfect wedding dress in Vera Wang’s Emily dress. “I loved my dress – there is nothing quite like feeling like a princess in a gown!” Michelle’s bridesmaids wore long navy chiffon dresses from Monique Lhuillier and the groomsmen all wore matching navy suits. Jon looked incredibly dapper in a classic black tuxedo.

The Moments: The most emotional moment of the day for Michelle was simply experiencing the ceremony. “When I held Jon’s hand for the first time at the ceremony all the nervousness rushed out of me and I felt so in love and so lucky and so happy- it was the best day of my life!” Other memorable moments came during the processional as Michelle walked down the aisle with her father, in the joy of having her 90 year old grandfather fly in from New York for the event, and in hearing the toasts that Michelle’s two younger sisters gave that brought the house down!

UK based wedding blog Rock n Roll Bride is all about helping couples planning their weddings find their ” individuality and general awesomeness” – a mission we fully believe in! We asked the fabulous blogger Kat Williams, the rock n roll bride herself, about some of her favorite blog posts from the last few years, and she came up with some truly great ones! Take a look…

  • How to … Pose in Your Wedding Photographs – What to Do (& What Not to Do): This post was surprisingly controversial! I wanted to show the brides that read my blog a few simple tips to help them feel more comfortable when having their engagement or wedding photos taken. The brides that read it loved it and Ive had a number of emails since from girls that used the tips on their wedding day. That was hugely rewarding.
  • Emma & Pete’s “Enchantment Under the Sea Dance” & A Big Fat Suprise Wedding: One of my best friend’s weddings. Emma Case is a wedding photographer herself so when she told me she was having a surprise wedding on her 30th birthday I nearly died with excitement! I was an honour to be at the wedding as well as to feature their amazing photos afterward.
  • “Rock n Revolution” = A Parisian Punk Rock Marie Antoinette Photo Shoot… The Final Results!: One of my favourite photo shoots that I was involved in. I went to Paris and dressed up as Marie Antoinette!
  • Rob & Justine’s Beeeautiful Art Retreat South African Wedding: It’s so hard to pick my favourite real weddings as Ive featured so many over the past 3+ years! But Rob & Justine’s always stands out to me. Just look at those awesome DIY details!
  • Film Wedding Photography – Sophie & Robert’s Quirky Vintage Countryside Wedding: Film is certainly not dead! Just look at these incredible images from deaf photographer Ashton Jean-Pierre.
