Santa Monica Wedding at The Viceroy | Sammi + Casey

I got to head north to my old stomping grounds of Los Angeles for Sammi + Casey’s Santa Monica wedding! Accompanied by their sweet pup, they sealed the marriage deal at beautiful Palisades Park overlooking the ocean. This was their favorite moment, “I couldn’t stop staring down the aisle at Casey. With all the other hoopla, that was the reminder of what we were there for - to become husband and wife!”. They chose this spot in Santa Monica because it had so much meaning for them. “Our wedding ceremony venue was an easy choice because it was a park that we frequently go to and it felt nice to be in a familiar place and share such a beautiful park with our family and friends.” These babes got ready at the CUTEST airbnb with their awesome friends and family. I mean seriously, I was ready for their whole crew to just adopt me. I was beyond obsessed with Sammi’s Rime Arodaky dress, it was incredibly unique and romantic.

After their ceremony, we traveled over to the Viceroy Santa Monica for the tastiest dinner I’ve ever had and RAGING on the dance floor!! Ice cream and cake (my ultimate favorite) were abundant and it was basically the best day ever.

As always, I asked Sammi + Casey what their advice is to brides planning their wedding. “Pick a few things to focus on that you guys really care about. With a wedding there are so many details and small things and if you try to control everything you will be so overwhelmed. We focused on dessert (because we both have such a sweet tooth) and music selection (by working very closely with your DJ). We let everything else fall into place (like table numbers, color of the dance floor, etc.) and when it didn’t look or go exactly according to plan is was easy to shrug our shoulders.”
