If you’ve ever wondered what the word romance really looks like…look no further. This wedding, in all its vintage-elegant-crazy beautiful glory is all romance. So stunning that it almost makes me blush, with photographs by Studio Castillero that are like a perfect little window into a blissfully beautiful day. The bride is the epitome of classic, the details are enough to make you cry and the boy…well, he’s pretty darn cute too. Wynn Austin had me at hello with this beautiful, beautiful affair. Oh and guess what? There are a gazillion more steal-worthy details tucked inside the gallery.
From Wynn Austin… Jessica & JJ met in high school and knew of each other but have never really had the opportunity to get to know each other. From JJ’s perspective, he always admired Jessica from a distance and had always thought of her as the girl that is out of his league. It took about four years later when fate brought them back together. Both Jessica and JJ were pursuing their acting career in Los Angeles when they had the opportunity hang out because of a mutual friend. From there they became friends and fell in love.
The theme that they had for their wedding was “My Whole Heart for My Whole Life”. Their elegant vintage inspired wedding took place at the Santaluz Country Club in San Diego. Jessica wanted an vintage, elegant and romantic wedding infused with the down to earth textures of burlap and linen.
The ceremony was out on the lawn with a beautiful arch and side trellis adorned with a plethora of flowers in ivory and blush colors. The trellis was adorned in ivy with large blooms of blush florals. Guests arrived to a beautiful beverage station with fruit infused water and lemonade. They were given mason jars with grey and white straws. Each guest was handed a small hemp bag full of petals. Each bag was hand stamped with a custom logo for the couple’s wedding.
The reception was in a large tent that is located at Santaluz. The entire sides of the tent was completely draped in white organza. The couple also rented 3 large crystal chandeliers and had amber uplighting surrounding the tent. The tables were adorned with different types of linens by Wildflower Linens. Half the tables were in a french blue brocade linen with a white linen hemstitch napkin and the other tables in a white Russian linen and a Russian khaki napkin. Each guests had a menu inserted in the napkin with the couple’s logo on it and a plastic bookmark holder for their photobooth picture. Each plastic cover had baker’s string in white and grey tied to it with heart shaped cutout of poetry paper.
