Wedding Wednesday: Sara & Johns Romantic Intimate Wedding

Sara and John’s wedding day is one that we’ll never forget! Sara and John were fantastic to work with. Together as a team they were involved with the planning from day one. Their wedding day was a true reflection of the two of them and their relationship. We all had a complete blast designing and planning their dream wedding together. Take a peek below, it’s beautiful! 

Sara and John were full of love and such a happy bride and groom on this beautiful summer day. Sara’s cinderella gown and Johns bowtie suit were perfectly paired with one another and added the perfect touch to their formal affair. The bridesmaids were dressed in blushing pink gowns accented with pretty bouquets created by the oh so talented Blush Botanicals. The bouquets were perfectly constructed with white, ivory and light pink blooms including minimal hints greenery for a subtle up-close pop. 

You can’t beat a perfect wedding fit for any size at the Santaluz Club (one of our most favorite venues in San Diego). With views of the growing vineyard, to the reception set up in the blooming courtyard, to a small and simple ceremony this wedding was unique and an amazing time for all friends and family members in attendance. The ceremony was truly romantic with white rose petals lining the aisle leading to a beautiful arbor with flowing white drapes topped with gorgeous white roses. With a soft palette of ivory, grays and baby pink the decor and color combinations were loved on so many levels.

We did not skip a beat with this intimate reception set up. Guests arrived in the garden courtyard only to see a romantic and cozy setting with a twinkle light open air tent fitted with weathered wood dining tables and natural linen chairs for all. Each guest found their seat by spotting their names written in gorgeous calligraphy that were placed underneath the gold rimmed glass chargers. With sweet touches everywhere, this wedding was so special and romantic. All the best to Sara and John, congratulations you two!!!

Wedding Wednesday: Megan and Stephen's Beautiful Backyard Wedding

Megan and Stephen completely melt my heart! Their love and pure happiness to marry one another was infectious. I can still hear Stephen's laugh and I have clear picture Megan's beautiful smile and giddiness surrounding the entire day. They were so so happy and ready to be married. Megan and Stephen had an incredible day with all their amazing friends and family. Megan and Stephen were married in the backyard of Megan's grandparents stunning home. Megan grew up playing in that exact backyard daily as she was raised just across the street. It was Megan's childhood dream to be married on that grass and under all the trees surrounding the beautiful property. It was a dream come true for both Megan and Stephen. 

I worked closely with Megan, her mom Lisa, and dad Bill in creating this special day! I can honestly say, they are genuinely one of the sweetest families I have ever met! We all had such a fun time planning the big day together. Megan's father Bill poured some sweat and love into hand crafting the stunning wood arch for their ceremony, he also mapped out the entire back yard to make sure all the lighting was perfectly strung. Lisa, Megan's mom thought through every sweet detail and made sure Megan's wedding day was a great success. 

Megan was radiating her natural beauty all day! Megan’s wedding dress was gorgeous! The lace back was unique and complimented the natural theme of this wedding beautifully.  Her sweet bridal party wore simple and stunning strapless navy blue dresses. When getting ready they wore adorable personalized monogrammed dress shirts! 

The ceremony was intimate, full of prayers and unconditional love for Megan and Stephen. The ceremony then led to a fun party celebrating the love of two amazing people! Personalized elements filled the day including the guys getting ready in the pool cottage, the signing & finding your favorite verse in their bible, and a dinner seating chart painted on windowpanes hanging from a large family tree. The lush greenery of the private estate complimented the natural beige linens, the incredible organic pops of white florals and fresh garden greens by the amazing Annette Gomez! Market lights lit the dance floor as Megan and Stephan shared in their special night. One of my favorite moments, is when Stephen and his mom broke out into a special surprise choreographed dance! Take a peek below, it's SO fun and I bet you can guess the song! To end the night the new Mr. & Mrs. rode away in a beautiful Thunderbird convertible with a sparkler exit by their guests. Congratulations to this beautiful couple! We adore you both! xxxxx. 

A huge thank you to our amazing photographers Shelby+Stone and videographers Enjet for capturing the day beautifully!
