Newport Beach Hornblower Cruise Wedding : Alex + Melissa

Oh, friends! Do we have a fantastic wedding to share with you today! We had the absolute pleasure of photographing Alex and Melissa’s gorgeous navy blue Hornblower Cruise wedding in Newport Beach, California.

We loved the way Melissa chose to incorporate navy blue, and crisp whites, with just a touch of light pink. The way they tied in the tones and textures of live succulents from their home in the desert fit seamlessly with the yacht. It was clear they put so much care and heart into each decor decision. One of our personal favorite touches had to be the Monkey Knots used as escort card holders!

Details and decor aside, Alex and Melissa were the real reason we’d been looking forward to this wedding for so long. They are such a class act. So kind, loving and giving.

Alex and Melissa, we love you guys! We love your families, and are so honored to have been a part of your special day. We’ve been giddy about pressing “publish” on this blog post, because we have so many new favorites to share. We hope you love your memories as much as we loved documenting them for you. Much love and appreciation…Josh and Michaela.
