An Outdoor Wedding at Stone Eagle Retreat in Malibu, California
Greg Fullerton (29 and a business manager) and Michael Louten (57 and a law firm docketing specialist) brought their loved ones to Stone Eagle Retreat in Malibu, California, to celebrate their marriage amid the natural beauty of Malibu Canyon. “We chose this location because we wanted to find a large enough place to accommodate our out-of-town guests, and the beautiful seven-bedroom mansion located on the property fit perfectly,” Michael says. The grooms wore identical gray Mark Piscitelli suits and walked hand in hand down the flower-petal-lined aisle to a gazebo with sweeping canyon views. The Purple Iris Events provided yellow and white flowers, including Michael’s favorite yellow roses, which symbolize purity and friendship to the couple. Greg and Michael also placed orchids throughout the mansion for their guests to take home at the end of their wedding. Michael recalls a special moment from the day: “We felt more as a couple the moment we walked into the reception area listening to the applause from our guests,” he says. The couple introduced their family and closest friends, and cut loose with their guests on the black-and-white-checkered dance floor. A wedding cake covered in sugar cherry blossoms sweetened the evening with a custom cake topper that looked just like the grooms.
