One couple throws a classic, formal wedding soiree with a soft, romantic color palette and a sweeping view of the Pacific Ocean.

The couple's three-tiered white wedding cake "had an accident as it was being delivered to the venue," the bride says. "When it arrived, my mom told me that it resembled a mountain of mashed potatoes." Family members rushed to the rescue, adding flowers from the bridesmaids' bouquets to cover the cake's new-found flaws. Photo: Beautiful Day Photography
