Moorea and Ryan's Paradise Cove wedding in Malibu was a whole vibe. The couple met in Malibu through their time as students at Pepperdine University. Their wedding took place at Paradise Cove, just a stone's throw from the house the bride grew up in. Because of the presence of lifelong friends and neighbors, the whole day felt a little bit like an elevated block party meets family reunion meets editorial surf-style content shoot. The sun was perfect, the wispy clouds hung on for just the right light, and sets of clean surfable waves dragged the Paradise Cove beach all afternoon and into the evening.
Moorea and Ryan did a bunch of fun things to make the wedding day their own, but my favorite by far was the switcheroo they pulled between the cocktail hour and the wedding. In LA, traffic can be murder, so the couple opted to plan a cocktail hour when all the guests and friends could mingle with the bride and groom and family before the ceremony began. It was the perfect way for everyone to gather and catch up and spend the afternoon together.
