Alex & Joel at San Diego Botanic Gardens

Alex and Joel thought of absolutely everything for their wedding at the San Diego Botanic Garden! Blush, ivory and sage were perfect wedding colors for this venue and the Gazebo Lawn was complete with white chiavari chairs and pretty market lighting. They chose a baby bellini and apple ginger sparkler as their signature drinks, which were a huge hit.

Judy & Justin at The Ultimate Skybox

It was such a nice day at the Ultimate Skybox for Judy and Justin’s wedding. The ceremony took place outside on the patio overlooking downtown San Diego, which was a beautiful backdrop for this wedding. They chose a pretty color combination of blue and coral, with the bridal party in cobalt blue and the bouquets made up of white and coral flowers. With all the tables covered in white linens, the blue and peach florals in the centerpieces really stood out, and the gold chiavari chairs made the room look even more elegant.

Lauren & Eric at the Darlington House


The Darlington House was the perfect place for Lauren and Eric to say “I do!” They had their ceremony in the Egyptian Patio, followed by cocktail hour in the Andalusian Patio and their reception in the Rose Garden. There were round dining tables in the garden with a long head table, all covered in white linens. Their adorable flower arrangements in mason jars looked great on the white tables with dark fruitwood chairs. Between the flowers, bridesmaid dresses and wood signage, the color scheme of this wedding was so beautiful and matched this venue perfectly!
