That venue is amazing!!

if you want a modern look you can go with something like this:  http://weddings.theknot.com/Real-Weddings/31303/view.aspx?id=31303&type=1&wedding_details=Reception+Decor&colors=Blue

 

or maybe a flowy flowery look like this http://www.snippetandink.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/breezy-hawaii-wedding.jpg

 

or maybe a vintage surfboard look  http://botanicafloraldesigns.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/beach_wedding_inspiration_shoot.jpg

 

or maybe do a sunset at the beach color theme ?

Oh! If you are from different places could you have sea water from each place and combine it for the unity candle type part of the ceremony? (if you hare having one). 

Sorry about all the posts, I just kept thinking of things.

We had a beach wedding and I didn’t want it to look cliche either, here are some pics of our wedding which may be useful. we tied it back to the beach, by using blues and earthy tones sandy tones.

What a beautiful location! Since it’s so modern you may want to stick to clean lines and all white or gold. Succulent flowers are a big thing now and can be modern or vintage. Here’s some inspiration:

I love these inspirations, ladies!  We are doing a wedding up in Laguna and I love the beach tones, without the beach theme.

@Simone2013: I wish I had a ton of lab glassware at home, that would be awesome! It would certainly become part of my decor. Come back after the wedding and be sure to show us pictures of the final product!

You could also do a nautical theme with navy and white. Then you can use cute pictures of anchors and sailboats and the saying “tying the knot” lol. This is how I’m doing my Florida wedding. Mine is at a yacht club though, even though I did initially want to have it on the beach. We fell in love with our venue, and at first I still wanted to have a rustic beach feel with lots of beige and browns. Think driftwood and sea glass. I don’t think I could handle all the crazy colors of the tropical beach weddings though.

@Simons2013: my FH and I live in Southern California and have been searching tirelessly (and unsuccessfullforth the perfect venue. I think you may have found it. It is so beautiful! Can you tell me where this is?

Drift wood, letters in a bottle or do more of a sciency fish theme. As long as you stay away from the starfish, shells and sand thing – i think your’re in the clear as far as cliche goes.
