Jeaneen and Ben said “I do” at Malibu Family Wines, a stunning boutique winery in the hills of Malibu. When this California couple met randomly in New York City, they just knew they were meant to be together. Their outdoor wedding stared with a ceremony overlooking the winery’s 1000 acre vineyard where Jeaneen and Ben exchanged vows under a rustic arbor covered with lush greenery and vibrantly colored florals. After their first kiss as husband and wife, the newlyweds posed for portraits among the vines as the sun hung low in the sky. Jeaneen is a talented illustrator and created all of the absolutely enchanting artwork for her wedding, with a joyful color story and a boho-chic vibe.
Jeaneen was stunning in her lace sheath gown from BHLDN, with its deep V neckline and easy elegance. She finished her look with a beaded floral-motif crown and a fingertip veil. Her maid-of-honor wore lavender and her flower girl was adorable in her lilac gown. All of the ladies carried bright bouquets with bold florals and succulent accents. Ben was handsome in his light gray suit and purple paisley tie and his groomsmen were dapper in navy blazers and khakis with pale lavender bow ties.
The open air reception was full of beautiful boho-chic details and Jeaneen’s artwork adorned all of the signage and the terra cotta succulent pots, a running theme in the decor. Family photos were displayed near the guest book and the place cards were vibrantly color-coded. Guests were given dream catchers as favors and as the sun went down the trees lit up with hundreds of twinkle lights, creating a dream-like atmosphere for dining and dancing. Jeaneen and Ben got the party started on the dance floor and guests were quick to join in to celebrate the happy couple. Congratulations Jeaneen and Ben!
