The day started out better than any other! The Portifino Hotel and Marina was buzzing with wedding bliss as Andrew and Megan prepared to commit to forever together. This day was oceans crossed, cities travelled, and lifetimes in the making.
The sea breeze rolled through the windows of the bridal suite and the bridesmaids buzzed around the room sipping their morning joe and listening to Megan’s contagious laugh. With the people she loved most surrounding her, she slipped into her blush wedding dress and laughed as the bridesmaids gasped. She was stunning from head to toe and Andrew just a few rooms away couldn’t wait to see her!
Lisa Chamberlain and her team did a fantastic job on everyone’s hair and make up!
Megan’s Mother had these shoes hand made in Italy for Megan, where the newlyweds just happened to honeymoon as well.
Megan put together the cutest little gift boxes for all of her bridesmaids, full of treats from the marvelous Anthropologie.
This lush bouquet was made with love by Florals By Laural and every inch of it was jaw dropping!
Andrew and his groomsmen were one heck of a good time and the marina was a perfect backdrop to their wild personalities!
He was dapper in his JCrew Blue suite and bowtie, and you wouldn’t have even known that just moments before he and his groomsmen were swimming in the pool on the edge of the ocean.
Since Andrew was born and spent many years of his life in Egypt they decided to start their marriage in a way that represented both his culture and their beliefs. His first glance of her would be the moment the doors opened of the Egyptian Coptic Church and she walked arm and arm down the aisle with her father.
Egyptian weddings are full of semblance, tradition, and sacraments so every part felt so sacred and beautiful.
After the ceremony everyone headed over to The Portifno Hotel and Marina to celebrate the new couple with plenty of drinks, fantastic food and non-stop dancing! Frankly Weddings put together a stunning reception that so perfectly matched Andrew and Megan’s style. Every time you turned around you saw another captivating detail curated by her and her team!
Andrew and Megan caught some alone time as the sun set over the ocean.
This cake by Torrance Bakery was absolutely beautiful and even more delicious!
Since Andrew is Egyptian his mom made some extra special desserts to share their culture with all the guests!
Megan and her father had a little first dance treat for everyone and busted out some N’Sync as they called everyone to the dance floor.
After hours of dancing, laughing and celebrating Andrew and Megan sped off to Italy.
