This photo shoot had me at hello.  Well actually it had me at lush florals from Sweet Marie Design, fab stylings from Sweet Revelry Events and a whole lot of pretty from some of San Diego’s finest vendors, but you get the point.  I am thoroughly obsessed.  Add in a breathtaking (+ sophisticated) US Grant location, an amazing “modern Cinderella” theme and one glorious image after another captured by ANZA foto + film and you can call this the world’s best Wednesday.  See it all right here in the full gallery.

And a beautiful film from Cloudless Weddings for even more pretty.  Enjoy, lovelies. xo

From ANZA foto + filmWhile most San Diego weddings bring a beach ceremony to mind, we wanted to showcase the more refined side of our city. The US Grant Hotel made the perfect backdrop for a Cinderella tale. Our team of vendors set out to create a fantasy world where the modern working woman could be transformed into a fairytale princess, if only for a day. We chose an old Hollywood look for our model Katie and her real-life Prince Charming, Mitch. This style complimented the Eve of Milady dress and Justine M Couture jewels.

The Crystal Ballroom at The US Grant was softly lit by candles and the most decadent chandeliers. Overall, the feel of the reception was refined elegance with whimsical, vintage touches.  The tablescape was layered with textured linen and a bustled overlay that was gathered with trailing ribbon that pooled onto the floor. Lush florals, vintage china, etched glassware and couture lace napkins gave the table a luxurious and feminine feel. Each place setting was adorned with an oversized scroll menu, adding a playful and whimsical touch. The fanciful cake was certainly fit for a fairy tale with trailing flowers and ribbon detail. This day showcases that San Diego weddings can be a sophisticated, polished affair!
