Capiz Shells and Feathers

For a sunset ceremony held atop a bluff, Julie Hsu wanted the décor to complement the Pacific Ocean backdrop. "We thought flowers would simply pale in comparison to the panoramic views," she says. "Plus, we wanted to incorporate natural elements in white to suit the beach setting." Capiz shell chandeliers suspended from the venue's pergola and tall arrangements of white feathers on translucent pedestals fit the bill perfectly. Décor by White Lilac Inc.
