The Pacific Edge Villa in Laguna Beach is becoming a pretty popular place!  Since my sister Michelle got married their in September 2009, we have received many requests to blog post more photos from the wedding.  This post is focused on showcasing the setting of the villa.  As you may know, the ceremony and reception can both take place on the villa's deck which is mounted right into the sand, just steps from the Pacific Ocean waves.  After helping plan about seven weddings in the past year, I can definitely say there are not many places in Southern California with where you can be this close to the sand without paying the $100,000 price tag.  So far, I have not found any other wedding venue quite like it.

Enjoy the photos!

The Pacific Edge's Villa is pretty much an open canvas as far as decor goes.  Here are a few more photos of a mixer Robert and I attended at the Pacific Edge in November.
