Malibu Wedding

We enjoyed planning this wedding so much that we were sorry when it was over.
We created a cozy lounge for guests to relax in
Hidden Garden's lovely flowers

At Pryor Events we love weddings at private homes - especially overlooking the sea. This wedding was one of our favorites.
We are delighted it was featured on Style Me Pretty this week. It was an enchanting wedding filled with meaningful details.

From Pryor Events
The wedding took place at a lovely Malibu estate overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Marisa and Ezra wanted their wedding to be unique and gorgeous and also very inviting and warm. Every detail was important to them, but they also wanted to be careful to not go over the top in any way. The ceremony took place in a garden overlooking the sparkling ocean. The couple’s good friend served as their officiant and the ceremony was extremely touching, funny and personal. Marisa and Ezra’s love of wine was reflected in their cocktail hour. There were several wine and charcuterie tasting stations placed on rustic wine barrel tables in custom cabanas. Guests dined beneath hanging crystal balls of light on a grand stone courtyard. They sat at wooden tables that were assembled on-site. An eclectic mix of chairs, benches and sofas completed the look.
The menu was classic and perfect. You can have the most amazing setting but if the food is not fantastic nothing else matters. Marisa and Ezra were shocked that a wedding meal could taste so amazing! As Ezra has a weakness for fries, each table had cones of beet, sweet potato and truffled Yukon gold fries with assorted dipping sauces. After dinner guests moved to a large deck for dessert, cake and dancing. Sofas and antique cocktail tables were brought in to complete this indoor/outdoor space. An electric violinist and a percussionist accompanied the DJ’s songs. Guests who did not wish to dance played a hole or two of golf on the home’s putting green overlooking the ocean. Ezra’s favorite team, The LA Kings, were in a final game of The Stanley Cup Playoffs the very same night as his wedding, so Marisa surprised him with a life-sized cake of the Stanley Cup. English toffee, chocolate drizzled pretzels and caramel with notes from the newlyweds were appreciated by guests who enjoyed them on the shuttles after they departed.

From the Bride and Groom
Like many couples, we met through Facebook — though not on the site, but rather at the company as we were both working there. We became fast friends and quickly went from being office buddies to spending almost every night hanging out, drinking wine and watching trashy TV together. After about a year of fighting it, the spark finally ignited between us, and we took the leap to being more than just friends. Five and a half years later, we were tying the knot in Malibu in front of all our closest friends and family. We wanted our wedding to be really nice and elegant without being pretentious or flashy, and more than anything, we wanted everything to be very fun. Our good friend officiated, adding a personal touch to the ceremony. We both have a passion for food and wine, so we put a strong focus on those elements throughout our wedding weekend. Thanks to our amazing wedding planner Julie Pryor and the all-star team she arranged for the day, our wedding weekend went better than we ever could have imagined.

  1. Breathtaking wedding decoration! Personally, I really like vintage themed weddings. The venue is most important factor about a real vintage ceremony. There are so many vintage NYC wedding venues. I would book one of those venues for my ceremony!
