Long Beach Native American / Irish Wedding

Some days are hard to top and Jaymi and Rory's incredible Long Beach wedding is certainly one of them! With clear blue skies and sunlight spilling down through the gorgeous palm trees of Hotel Maya, the bride and groom prepared in rooms down on the waterfront, surrounded by their awesome family and friends. With the guests all dressed in white, everyone met for a truly stunning Chumash Native American ceremony. It was wonderfully personal with each bridesmaid and groomsman bringing forward a ceremonial gift and sharing a moment with the happy couple, where Jaymi and Rory could share just how much each person meant to them. After a heartfelt exchanging of vows and wrapping in a ceremonial blanket there was an explosion of golden streamers before the evenings partying began! Jaymi and Rory share a passionate love of music and they really brought this to their wedding with hip-hop touches such as cassette tape seating plans, artist-named tables, and a lyric from their first dance song 'Adorn' by Miguel made into a golden banner displayed above their head table. As the sun went down guests and new friends from across the world danced away looking out over the twinkling Long Beach skyline. Here are a few of our favourite images from the day!
