Being a native San Diegan I can attest to the perfect weather and beach views that can stop you dead in your tracks so holding a destination wedding in this perfect little spot seems like a total no brainer. As does compiling a group of vendors to knock that destination wedding right out of the park; vendors like florist Jennifer Cole, planner Sweet August Events and Archetype Studio behind the lens. See it all right here.
From the Bride… For our wedding we really wanted to take advantage of the beautiful weather in California. Our small intimate gathering of our closest family and friends was everything we dreamt of and more.. Taking place on L’Auberge’s Sunset terrace overlooking the ocean, we wanted a coastal vibe with elegance. Katherine Lopez made sure every detail at our wedding was personal and sentimental. We got to bring home amazing memories that will be with us forever. My favorite moment was our family style dinner with our favorite songs playing with string lights above us and a beautiful San Diego sunset beside us.
From the Photographer… Stepping off the plane from Texas to San Diego was a breath a fresh air! Texas weather in August is oppressive at best, and I savored every moment of that beautiful California breeze. Nicki & Manny are a wonderful couple and one of our favorite moments working with them during the wedding week was our chance to capture images along the beautiful coastline… near the very same place they saw their first sunset together as a couple. SO romantic! We love the opportunity to capture memories in places with a history to the couple! Wedding day was gorgeous and the floral details have to be some of my favorite from this season… lush and over-the-top with just the right amount of tropical flair mixed into the romance. We hope the images take you back to that beautiful romantic place and you find lots of inspiration in the details!
