Bayfront tropical garden wedding

bride and groom walkingKelli and Clay wanted to celebrate along the San Diego bay where they could marry the open-air feel of nature with a chic and clean wedding vibe. Their enclosed garden ceremony was filled with the most joyful and personalized ceremony from Clay’s grandfather that had everyone overflowing with smiles and laughter. The couple incorporated their personalities through sweet treats like custom labeled Hershey’s Kisses, a sweet painting of their beloved furry family member Frankie, and powerful song choices like “All For You” by OAR and “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” by Stevie Wonder.

These two were in sync every step of the day. From their vows where they each mentioned Kelli’s very okay obsession with Taco Bell to how they got the epic reception dance party started with glow batons! You never saw them sitting down for too long, instead they spent time truly being present with their guests making joyous memories all night long.

Rosemary and Kyle’s first date was at The Prado and they returned every year after that to throw a penny in the wishing well. We can only guess what they wished for, because they got married right in front of that well. They envisioned a fairytale wedding, from the gown to the wishing well. Everything came together and they had the wedding their pennies had wished for!

bride and groom, church wedding

Dan and Olivia are from different cultures and wanted their wedding to highlight their very different cultures and their love. The bilingual Catholic mass ceremony set the tone for the evening. The reception that included a mariachi trio, a taco truck and a Mexican candy table for their guest. Followed up with bilingual speeches by their wedding party. They feel that their wedding truly demonstrated their relaxed, family-oriented personalities, and their love to each other.

Real San Diego Wedding, bride and groom, happiness

The bride is originally from Northern California and the groom from New York, so the majority of their guests were from out of town and their wedding was a way to thank them for coming from all over to celebrate with them.  They had a whimsical garden wedding with a gazebo draped in greenery and florals, a rose petal filled aisle and a harpist to set the tone for their ceremony. They created a San Diego inspired menu for dinner with local craft beers and treated their guests to The Baked Bear where they could create their own ice cream sandwiches.

Brianna and Matt had a romantic, yet fairly casual wedding with a memorable ceremony and a fun party afterwards for all their family and friends to enjoy.  For a fun personal touch, since they met on a dating app, Brianna’s mom made a “Tinder Frame” for guest to take photos in!

This styled shoot brought together glamour in countryside in a way that is fit for a couple that is looking for that sophisticated and natural touch. We wanted to highlight this beautiful space with details of gold, soft colors, and draped fabric. We filled the venue with gorgeous flowers and berries that create that fresh garden feeling. The bride and groom radiated grace, style, and love. These details came together to create a romantic and elegant ambiance in the midst of the vines. We loved putting together every detail of this shoot and hope you enjoy the photos attached.

It features a bride with a simple yet elegant style. Tones of blush, mauves and greens were the backdrop for many of our scenes. This bride is artistic and a tad glamours, wanting to remember every aspect of her day. We added a little touch of  her love of art with geometric shapes. We needed to add in quiet moments for her and her new groom in the vines at sunset. The movement and simplicity of the reception gown was perfect for a dance in the barrel room with her groom.  We hope to inspire the heartfelt bride who wants a intimate Wine country wedding but also cherishes both a touch of glamour and some of the quiet moments of the wedding day.
