A Casual Beach Wedding at a Private Residence in La Jolla, California

Meg Alexander (36, a Registered Nurse) and Josh Dunn (38, a Transportation Manager) held their wedding and reception in La Jolla, California. "We really wanted a beach wedding and couldn't imagine not having it in the city where we met," Meg says. The couple exchanged vows with an oceanside ceremony underneath a gorgeous chuppah in Cuvier Park. The reception was held in a rented house with a backyard dinner overlooking the Pacific ocean. "We really wanted our wedding to have a relaxed beachy feel. Neither one of us wanted anything extravagant," Meg says. A color palette of blush, mint and teal complemented the ocean setting of their location. After a delicious crab boil dinner, everyone sipped drinks from blue mason jars and enjoyed cupcakes in lieu of cake,  as a family friend played music throughout the night. "Josh and I are very laid back people. Our guests came over to the house and we just celebrated. No formalities--just come as yourself, enjoy good company, good food and good drinks!" Meg says.
