A Summery and Timeless Affair:
Shoshanna and Travis's Malibu Wedding

Malibu Magic

Nestled in the picturesque coastal city of Malibu, California, Shoshanna and Travis chose a charming restaurant as the backdrop for their nuptials. The venue, Taverna Tony, perfectly embodied the relaxed, warm, and welcoming atmosphere the couple desired. Its distinct Mediterranean style played a pivotal role in shaping their wedding concept. From the light blue of the iron gate to the wax seals and tile accents, every detail was carefully curated to reflect the restaurant's unique aesthetic.

The Look of Love

Shoshanna and her sister, Rachel, entrusted their makeup and hair to the talented team at Makeup Therapy in Malibu. Their look was simple, fresh, and organic, mirroring their everyday style. Shoshanna's stunning dress from Norma Kamali and Lola Cruz Shoes completed the picture of understated elegance.

Unique Touches

What set Shoshanna and Travis's wedding apart were the unique and thoughtful details woven throughout the day. A love for lemons emerged during the planning process, and it became a charming motif in the wedding, from the florals to the decor. Mediterranean-inspired Olive Oil favors from Saratoga Olive Oil Co. added a delightful touch. The couple also enjoyed a ride in the father of the bride's classic car, a moment that added a touch of nostalgia to the day. The impeccable rentals, including benches and chairs from Archive Rentals, elevated the venue's ambiance.

Cherished Traditions and Sentimental Touches

The wedding was rich with meaning, as the couple incorporated sentimental elements into their day. Lemon accents in the florals were a nod to their shared love for this vibrant fruit. They also followed a cherished Jewish tradition, using the same Chuppah that Rachel had been married under, lovingly assembled by their brother, Zach, and their father, Michael. To add a layer of nostalgia, Shoshanna adorned herself with jewelry and accessories from her late mother.
