The Aisle: Step Inside This Cool Young Couple's Magical Malibu Wedding

by Lauren Powell

Earlier this year underneath a storied oak tree laced with fairy lights in the heart of Malibu, California, Vanessa Gex (nee Spillane) of Stone Cold Fox, and Rob Gex, co-owner of Atlas Lifestyle Co. and US sales manager for Epokhe, exchanged vows in a ceremony that can only be described as dreamlike.

Flanked with 10 groomsmen and eight bridesmaids (who fittingly wore custom Stone Cold Fox), the young couple and their bridal party were the definition of picture-perfect. Dressed in Vera Wang and Acne Studios respectively, the bride and groom wed in front of their 210 guests in a “rustic, yet chic” setting at the iconic and picturesque Calamigos Ranch.

As every tree lit up with lights, guests danced (and danced) and ate In-and-Out burgers by the Ferris wheel champagne in hand. This is what you call a celebration. Scroll on to for the ultimate wedding inspiration—and get ready to pin.
