If there is one thing that really makes the flower lover in me squeal with joy, it’s an all white arrangement of blooms, and Isari Flower Studio definitely knows how to put a pretty arrangement together. So this wedding is pretty much floral perfection to me. Ryan Llora Photography was there to capture the blooming beauty (and the rest of the utter gorgeous) and we’ve put it all into a gallery for our favorite people – so click here to see that!
Randy and I knew each other peripherally through mutual friends. It wasn’t until a couple years later that we started dating. His sense of humor and kindness was what I fell in love with and it only made sense that I should spend the rest of my life with the one person who has truly made me happy.
When I look back at this whole experience I can say with all honestly that everything felt easy. We decided that in order for us to fully enjoy this experience, we wanted things to be as stress free as possible. From the moment we started planning we knew we wanted to include elements that were true to our relationship.
Both raised in San Diego, we choose our venue at the Hyatt overlooking Mission Bay. Our décor was focused on creating a classic, timeless atmosphere. Our amazing florist, Tam Ashworth created this ambiance using the natural beauty of candles strewn amidst a range of all white florals. One of our favorite past times is getting caricatures and we incorporated this idea by having mini caricatures of each guest serve as place cards at our reception.
I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding day. My wedding planner Jessica made everything feel so easy and fluid and I felt at my most elegant wearing my custom wedding dress made be designer and close personal friend Chadwick Bell. The day was made even more special since we decided to exchange our own written vows to one another surrounded by close friends and family.
