Molly & Drew

Private Estate | La jolla, california

Planning & Design: Rachelle Youd

A laid-back coastal theme anchored in conservation saw environmental aficionados Molly and Drew celebrate their love for one another— and the ocean. Rather than the familiar dinner and dancing late into the night, the California couple celebrated their appreciation for light and warmth with a family-style brunch following their mid-morning vows in which simplicity and sustainability took center stage. 

A vision of understated elegance in a modest sheath gown, Molly and her maids opted for handwoven fans in place of flowers— a detail that observed her eco-friendly attitude— while Drew and his groomsmen wore matching suits, shirts, and sports shoes in casual tones of cream and white. Hints of seaglass blue enhanced the beach vibe for a modern yet minimalist morning of celebrations.  

Before finding their seats at king tables dressed in crisp white linen, guests were invited to create a beach bag of natural products from the gifting suite that not only highlighted the couple’s passion to end pollution, but also reflect natural coastal elements. Rejuvenating food and beverages included fresh salads and thirst-quenching coconuts, as well as poolside popsicle drinks perfect for cooling off beneath the warm sunshine.
