A Magical Malibu Wedding Overlooking the Pacific Ocean
Wedded bliss? Check. A majestic view of the Pacific Ocean atop Malibu? Um yes, check. And a feature in the eponymous Brides Magazine (August/September print issue)? Check (we are honored and humbled). Read below for an excerpt of this awe-inspiring ceremony and celebration…
Caroline Cuse knew just what her ideal wedding locale looked like, though she wasn’t entirely sure it existed. “I grew up hiking the hills around Los Angeles and dreamed of getting married overlooking the ocean,” says the photographer and floral designer. By her side in the search? Sean Duncan, a financial technology strategist, whom she met in 2009 while both were students at Harvard. Hailing from the UK, Sean had never been to Southern California before he met Caroline, but soon fell in love with its wild landscape too. In 2016, he proposed on a hike in the Santa Monica Mountains.
The couple looked at venues, but nothing felt quite right until Caroline received a text from her mother that simply read, “I think I found it.” Attached was a photo of a lush, grassy hill in Malibu with views of the Pacific. “It was perfect,” she says, but the remote area had no infrastructure, so everything from electricity to decor had to be imported to Black Sage Mesa, named to reflect the abundance of the aromatic evergreen on the site.

An Intimate Garden and Beach Wedding Featured on Style Me Pretty
Those fond of Santa Barbara know that it has the best of all worlds…beaches, the vast Pacific, gardens and flowers aplenty, and the majestic mountains. And why it’s no surprise that the region is a destination hotspot for weddings, including this beautiful garden and beach celebration on Style Me Pretty…
From the feature, “A garden wedding and a beach wedding all wrapped into one sounds divine, right? That’s exactly what this Montecito fete planned by Hoste Events has to offer, dressed in a darling palette of light blue and blush—a nod to the sea and the sweetest blooms designed by Idlewild. With an guest list of 85, the celebration was intimate and lovely and I promise you’ll want to jump right into your screen when you see the imagery by Jordan Galindo.”
