Truth be told, San Juan Capistrano churns out some seriously pretty soirees. And one lovely gem that we've come to adore whole-heartedly is The Villa. It's a quintessential locale for love stories and garden-loving duos, just ask The Youngrens who were behind every sweet moment of this pink-splashed day. Get your romance on in the gallery!

From the beautiful Bride� The moment we walked into the Villa San Juan Capistrano, we knew that we had to get married there. The venue was so serene, with its enclosed courtyard and sweet chapel. The perfect place for a peony-infused garden party.

As we thought about planning our wedding, we wanted the day to be a celebration of love. Not just our love, but the love and support of the family and friends who would celebrate with us. As such, we tried to incorporate personal touches. Jeff's dad officiated the ceremony and his mom hand stitched the pillows that were laid around the venue. My family helped to make much of the decor, including the seating chart and chalkboard-like drink menus. A piece of my grandmother's wedding dress was wrapped around my bouquet, and on the inside of the cottage we displayed our family members' wedding photos.

One of our favorite memories occurred just as dinner was winding down. Jeff and I sat at a sweetheart table in the corner of the courtyard, and we looked out at our guests, then at each other, and took a moment to take it all in. We were married! We were so grateful for these wonderful people who chose to celebrate with us. It was such a feeling of joy!

Thank you to all the lovely vendors for your kindness and talent. You were a dream to work with. And a special thanks to the Youngrens for capturing the day so well!
