Elegance and Sparkle at San Diego Wedding

Through the magic of Samantha Dapper Event Design and a little help from Cozy Posies, this bride’s vision was brought to life…and then some. Set at The Prado at Balboa Park, the reception design glittered in shades of pink and gold. Abbey Lunt Photography captured the celebration and you can check out all the soft elegance and sparkle, right here.

From Abbey LuntJustine and Tyler are one of those couples who everyone wants to know them, and be around them. Together, they exude such a positive, sweet energy, and are gorgeous to boot. Their fabulous wedding day, beautifully designed by wedding coordinator Samantha Dapper at Samantha Dapper Event Design, matched their beauty perfectly to the decor.

The reception was filled with gold, blush, and white, with splashes of shimmer, crystal, and PEONIES! Florals created by the amazing Cozy Posies, just glowed with soft elegance, and Justine’s cake was adorned with perfectly sweet sugar flowers and Flour Power matched the sweet aesthetics of the cake to the taste. Delicious!

Architectural Wedding Inspiration at Balboa Park

If you could boil a perfect wedding day to it’s most beautiful elements, this wedding inspiration from Katie Grant would be that times about a million. Moody and bold florals juxtapose with some of the most romantic details I’ve ever laid eyes on and I swear to you, this is what my dreams will be made of for months to come. Months.

Park

From Katie GrantEl Prado, Balboa Park in beautiful San Diego is both the backdrop and the inspiration for this styled shoot. The setting sun creates a warm glow on both our delicate bride and the otherwise cold stone surroundings. Her structured and ornate Matthew Christopher gown echoes the unique and timeless architecture of the Park’s famous monuments.

Bold and moody local flowers were carefully chosen from nearby Little Italy Farmer’s Market and both the bouquet and the table are adorned with a soft whisper of Frou Frou Chic ribbon. The table is topped with antique brass and silver to reflect the similar use of both metals throughout the park.

Romantic Garden Inspired Seaside Wedding

If I could, I would happily pack up and move right into this beautiful La Jolla wedding. It’s romantic, it’s sweet, and it’s smiles galore which is exactly what I would like my days to look like. But because that is not possible, you will find me happily cruising this perfect gallery from L Hewitt Photography for the next few hours, at the very least.

Romantic

From L Hewitt PhotographyFrom the bridesmaid dresses to the invitation suite, the couple’s wedding was a fairy tale fusion of sweet, bright, lovely, romantic, and colorful, like a sweet date in a candy store — which, as I got to know the couple, discovered was a perfect representation of the Joanne’s and Kai’s playful chemistry. The magic and whimsy in this wedding really pushes it beyond the ordinary.

A couple of fun things, at the end of the ceremony, the couple stopped to do a selfie at the end of the aisle. They also strolled to an ice cream shop and snuck in together for a sweet treat before meeting their guests at their reception as the sun set over the stunning La Jolla coastline.

Summer Romance Engagement Shoot

This engagement shoot so perfectly captures the beauty of a summer day spent by the water. Fresh picked bouquets  by To La Lune Events and the prettiest watercolor save the date by Type And Title are the added bonus. We dream of days just like this – sunshine, love and a refreshing cocktail in hand. Have a look at the whole session captured by Jen Wojcik Photography and you’ll agree.

From Jen Wojcik PhotographyWe wanted to capture a fresh take on a summer romance and Chirsty from To La Lune styled the concept perfectly. Incorporating freshly picked bunches of mock orange blossoms and kiss over the fence that just scream summer, we documented our couple on what we thought was the perfect summer evening. Rose and Seth sat sipping refreshing summer cocktails on the dock and as the sunlight disappeared over the hill they snuggled under a pom-pom fringed blanket for warmth. Don’t miss Rose’s flirty romper or her knee high socks with floral details! The darling Save the Dates with scallop details by Type and Title echoed the couple’s fresh and preppy vibe. I don’t know about you guys, but I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else other than dancing on that dock in the arms of my sweetheart on a summer evening!

From Melissa Biador PhotographyThis local colorful and modern geometric inspiration shoot was put together by a handful of San Diego wedding vendors. The creative team wanted to showcase a fun filled, eclectic and modern twist to styling a wedding.

This styled shoot featured a non-traditional bridal gown from the designer Monique Lhuillier and a brightly colored magenta dress from Badgley Mischka both from Rent the Runway. Menswear was provided by A Better Deal Tuxedo, a local San Diego suit/tuxedo shop.

The colors were modern, bold and bright and infused with a mix of colorful centerpieces with Jonathan Adler vases. Many of the custom wooded laser cut items (table numbers, the “hashtag”, heart shaped blocks for table numbers) and custom Malvi cake signs were created and designed by Nic.Roc.Designs. The items featured a fun and modern look to this inspiration shoot.

This faux wedding was photographed at The New Children’s Museum, which also houses some of the most interesting exhibitions for children and adults alike as well as weddings and other events. The NCM was a perfect setting for this styled shoot!
