Weddings don't have to be complicated. They can be barefoot on the sand with just your family within easy hugging distance. They can be no-music, no-fuss, just the basics, with Dad officiating the vows and brothers passing little jars of champagne. They can be on the sand of a public beach, with strangers walking by and offering their well-wishes. They can be simple. And beautiful. At the same time.
Erin and Andy did just that. These east-coasters celebrated their vows on the beach in Southern California, but they managed to avoid the 5-figure venue price tag by opting to gather their families on the sand at El Matador. On a sunny fall day, with a sprinkling of Angelenos enjoying the sunset nearby, Erin and Andy and eighteen family members circled up on the sand and shared a moment of new beginning.
After a quick set of family and couple photos, the whole crew piled into cars to share a candlelit farm to table meal together at the iconic Malibu Pier.
Simple, meaningful, and beautiful all rolled into one.
