Verandas Beach House LGBTQ California Wedding

Red and Pink Wedding Inspo for Your Valentine’s Day

Brittny Drye Founder + Editor-in-Chief of Love Inc. Magazine | On-Air Wedding Expert | LGBTQ+ Inclusivity in the Wedding Industry

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, this incredibly romantic Manhattan Beach, California wedding inspiration has landed on our desks and warmed our hearts.

Real-life couple Juli and Bibi got engaged in 2019, but with the uncertainty of the pandemic restrictions they have yet to tie the knot. To lift their spirits, Love Lister Lizzy Liz Events put together an amazing team of vendors and epic details, basing the intimate design inspiration for the styled shoot around the couple.

“Bibi is a local DJ in SoCal with a fun personality, so a bright color palette was a must,” says Lizzy. This led to vibrant shades of magenta, pinks, and purples taking center stage, expressed through a floral envelope liner, an abundance of floral arrangements, a modern textured cake design, and a statement suit jacket. Pops of teal were also shown through the linens to add a Mid-century touch; a favorite style of Juli’s.

These images by Lin & Jirsa are a beautiful reflection of Juli and Bibi’s commitment to each other, while magnifying the elegance that intimate celebrations bring.
