Christine + Jordan were such a sweet couple to work with. We loved their intimate and laid-back wedding that centered around their traditions and family. With the rustic chic style of The Lodge at Malbou Lake, all the details fell into place to create a magical evening.
Most of Christine’s family traveled to California from Canada to celebrate with the couple on their big day; and with their arrival landing only the day before the wedding there was little time for catching up. Thankfully, the private getting ready suites at The Lodge at Malibou Lake were large enough to accommodate the bride’s out-of-towners to sit and catch up while the wedding party got ready.
The bride and groom snuck away and had their First Look tucked into a small path surrounded by trees on the Lodge grounds. This kept their first look intimate and gave the couple a chance to have some time together before the ceremony began.
The ceremony was a perfect mix of traditions and we absolutely loved that both the bride and groom walked down the aisle with their mother and father. The couple got married under a handmade chuppah passed down from Jordan’s parents wedding incorporating the groom’s Jewish Traditions. They also chose to have a traditional Scottish hand-fasting ceremony to incorporate the bride’s Scottish Traditions. The hand-fasting ceremony provided the couple’s family an opportunity to bless their marriage, while simultaneously tying their hands together.
After the ceremony, guests were invited to partake in cocktail hour on the front porch of The Lodge followed by a reception indoors.
The Lodge at Malibou Lake provided impeccable service with a remarkable family style dinner. Vox DJ’s kept the energy high with DJ and photo booth services. The evening was filled with food, bar and great music. The couple even incorporated a Hora into the evening followed by a night filled with dancing and lasting memories!
