Sweet summer bride and groom photo

Oh, I just love starting off the week on a high note — which is fortunate, because this gorgeous, chic ruffle-inspired California wedding is just the thing you need to need to feel amazing this Monday! Haley and Tony were married in the most gorgeous California ceremony at the Brigantine Del Mar in Del Mar, California. Haley’s gorgeous ruffled wedding dress was the starting point to inspire the rest of the day — the cake, centerpieces and other details all took after her unique gown… and it’s truly amazing!

Even more beautiful than the ruffle-inspired wedding decor? The way that Haley and Tony look at each other. There’s more than one happy, tearful moment… which is thankfully captured perfectly by Shane & Lauren Photography. Read on to see more of this beautiful ruffle-inspired California wedding.
