Just five months after getting engaged on a private island in the Maldives, Sabrina Idels and Yishai Turner said “I do” in front of close friends and family at their Montage Laguna Beach Wedding.

Wanting a beachy vibe, the couple chose the venue so they could have views of the Pacific throughout the celebration. Sabrina says. “We love the beach. We got engaged on the beach, so it felt fitting for us to get married on the beach.”

Sabrina describes herself as “more bohemian than glam,” so the day was full of warm sunset colors, sea-inspired textures, dried grasses, rich woods, rattan accents, and terracotta pottery.

The couple’s laid-back approach really helped on the big day as unexpected weather changed their plans: It rained! But she said: “We ended up being really happy with the tent – it actually felt much more intimate for our guests.”

“All of the design concepts were spot-on,” Sabrina says of her planning team. “Everything was so aligned with our taste. We really couldn’t have asked for a better fit.” Some of those details included the invitation suite and paper goods designed by Prim & Pixie. The colors and textures reflected the wedding day décor perfectly.
