This wedding had me at pink. And then the palms, the happy blooms from Lovely Stems Floral, the dresses (all of them) and the smiles? Well lets just say it all swept me right off my feet. Heidi-O-Photo told the beautiful story of this garden soiree through her lens and you can find it all here in the gallery.
From the beautiful Bride…After Joey and I got engaged in the midst of a sweltering summer season, I knew that I wanted to plan an early spring wedding. This is my favorite time of the year because plants begin to bloom and the weather warms up. Spring is also the same time of the year when Joey and I went on our first date. He planned a simple date hiking up Palomar Mountain. On this day, the mountain side was sprinkled with yellow and orange wild flowers, and wispy green grass. It was this image and many more similar memories with Joey that inspired my wedding style. Joey and I wanted an informal, garden wedding with bright colors. We wanted to share our love for the outdoors with our friends and family. We picked the San Diego Botanic Gardens as our venue for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. It provided the perfect backdrop for a garden inspired wedding with flower, bird, and wood details. Since gardens are filled with various flora, I chose the color coral to broaden the color scheme. Décor and flowers ranged from pink to orange, with hits of blue to add contrast.
