A Classic, Intimate Outdoor Wedding

One couple hosts a warm, intimate wedding celebration in Southern California with a gold, peach, and white color palette.

Ashley Cha and John Kim's relationship has truly stood the test of time: Before their engagement, the couple was in a long-distance relationship for six years—she in New York City and he in Michigan. They first met through a mutual friend in New York, in the summer of 2005. "We were good friends in the beginning and soon we fell for each other," says Ashley. "Even after six years of our relationship, we still remember what we wore the day we first met!"

On August 10, 2012, Ashley and John invited their family and friends to an elegant, classic wedding celebration at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in the seaside town of Dana Point, California.
