Whimsical Art Museum Wedding in San Diego

When it comes to Art Museum weddings, this one literally takes the Mondrian inspired cake. Pops of color were provided with vivid Organic Elements blooms, while bicycle bottle openers proved to be the perfect party favor. Each heart-warming moment captured by Petula Pea Photography is essentially a work of art, and we can watch it all unfold right over here.

From Bliss EventsJuliana & Mark were married on the Sculpture Garden at the San Diego Museum of Art at dusk. The ceremony included 40 of their family members (a guest of honor was the groom’s daughter) and music played by the bride’s brothers, Andres & Robert. Afterwards, 150 of their friends gathered for a cocktail reception inside the rotunda of the museum where they enjoyed tray passed hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine and the “Painted Lady” signature cocktail, with melon liquor and passion fruit juices. Juliana and Mark were announced as a married couple for the first time as they descended down the grand staircase, while guests took pictures and cheered on the newlyweds.

Guests were then escorted into “vintage art elegance” for the reception and greeted by Juliana, Mark, both sets of parents, and a beautiful chandelier over the dance floor. When the guests were seated by a candlelit seating chart, they were each handed a favor: a hand-beaded bracelet by the bride’s aunts and a hand embroidered tote bag with the initials “J & M” that the brides Mom hand embroidered herself. The gentlemen enjoyed bicycle bottle openers with a note that read, “Let the adventure begin”! Mark & Juliana danced to their first dance to “Magic” by Coldplay.

A plated salad of Baby Organic Greens with Sliced Angria Poached Pear, Caramelized Pecans , Gorgonzola, Currants and Aged sherry Vinaigrette greeted the guests as they watched the couple dance. Guests then enjoyed dinner stations: Pistachio Crusted Butterfish, Amaranth, Farro & Quinoa with Medjool Date Parsley & Lemon Cumin Vinaigrette, Mustard Beurre Blanc & Grilled Squash and Grilled Kobe Skirt Steak with Garlic, Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Olive Oil, Citrus Zest, Chili Flake & Garlic, Vegetables and Red Wine Rosemary Sauce. The guests could also accompany their entrees with Cavatappi Pasta with Roasted Butternut Squash, Wild Mushroom, Roasted Yellow Bell Peppers, Chardonnay and Truffle Oil.

After dinner, guests were delighted to hear the kind words of the couple welcoming them and heartfelt thanks for attending their wedding celebration. The couple cut the Mondrian inspired cake (this was AMAZING and perfect for an art museum wedding!) and guests enjoyed a variety of flavored coffees. In the final hour of the reception, guests were surprised by a band of 15 musicians with instruments walking into the reception and through the guests playing some of the bride and grooms favorite songs. Guests sang and screeched with delight as the band performed and the bride and groom took center stage and danced the night away.

From Heidi-o-photoMonika grew up in Poland and moved to the United States with her family, while Robert grew up in Michigan. Despite growing up so far apart and in different countries, they found each other and were a perfect match. After meeting, they were in a long distance relationship and traveled on many trips together. It was during a trip to Thailand that Robert proposed to Monika on a beach.

Since everyone would be traveling for their wedding they wanted to find somewhere in the United States that would have fantastic weather and lots of beautiful sights to see. So, San Diego it was! They were looking for a smaller boutique hotel, and the Estancia proved to be the perfect place. For the theme they went for a mix of vintage (in the architecture and gardens) and modern (in their clothing and centerpieces). Everything came together beautifully for their eclectic wedding day.

Breakfast on the Lake Engagement

This darling couple spent a quiet morning cozied up at San Marcos Lake for their oh-so-adorable e-sesh. Complete with donuts and J. Crew pajamas, the talented Carmen Santorelli Photography was behind the lens and snapped up plenty of romance. From lakeside kisses to a formal attire stroll in the desert, every picture is dreamier than the last. Cozy on up to the full gallery for more!

From The Bride… Jason and I are San Francisco residents, but our love story began in San Diego. It only made sense for us to incorporate it in a special way, which is why we chose to do our wedding / engagement shoot there. We wanted the shoot to feel fun, playful, and maybe even surprising; thus, pajamas and donuts outdoors was something that was easily agreed on! Carmen, our photographer, is owed the credit for suggesting the dock by the lake. Per her suggestion we chose San Marcos Lake as our location. We also wanted to do something with formal-wear in a contrasting setting and the San Marcos Lake area kindly obliged with its desert-like surroundings. We’re not an overly “cutesy” couple, so I loved the way Carmen was able to capture our not-so-mushy personalities and the less traditional nature of the shoot while still giving them a romantic vibe!
