I have a bit of a weakness for library weddings, so today’s feature from Dave Richards Photography found an immediate spot in my heart. Add in a bride with a blusher veil, rich pops of color in the reception, and a waterside ceremony, and this wedding has secured a spot in my top faves.

From the photographer, Dave of Dave Richards Photography: What is more romantic than a historic library built in the 1930s with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean? When Elizabeth and Brandon first walked through the double wooden doors they fell in love with the Spanish and Dutch colonial style of the Redondo Beach Historic Library. With its blank wooden shelves surrounding the dining room it was the perfect black slate to create the wedding of their dreams.

Wanting to be surrounded by the love of their family and friends Elizabeth and Brandon transformed the outdoor lawn into their secret garden filling the air with the fragrance of flowers and the music of a harpist. Inside, the library’s bookshelves were decorated with candles, vintage books, and pictures of the bride and groom showcasing their love for one another. The couple selected simple yet elegant centerpieces including brass candelabras surrounded by jewel toned flowers and succulents. Each table displayed a letter wrapped in text from old books and the couple used library cards displayed in old wooden card boxes for the seating chart. The rest of the night was filled with heartwarming speeches, fun in the photo booth, casino tables, and a whole lot of dancing!
