Kirstyn & Henry at La Jolla Woman’s Club

We love these photos from another beautiful La Jolla Woman’s Club wedding. Kirstyn and Henry’s guests loved the donut bar that they had for dessert! They also had the most adorable place cards. Instead of using traditional place cards, they tied their guests’ names and table numbers to a little treat and had them find their seats that way. The theme of this wedding was elegant but beachy and we loved this vibe!

Japanese Friendship Garden: A Gem in Balboa Park

Tucked away in Balboa Park, the Japanese Friendship Garden boasts beautiful scenery. The venue features two event spaces including the upper garden which is a beautiful outdoor area with a serene coy pond and ceremonial gates that allow for the perfect ceremony backdrop. The Inamori Pavilion is the newest addition to the gardens and is an indoor space with wood accents and lots of natural light. Private events will enjoy private access to the entire garden for up to 300 guests.

Katie & Brice at a Private Ranch

Katie and Brice “got hitched” on a gorgeous September day and we loved it! From their round farm tables to their barrel flower pots, everything about this wedding wowed us. The newlyweds used X-back chairs and a wooden arch to give their ceremony that extra rustic feel. In addition to giving their guests a little bit of that Southern charm, the newlyweds also had cowboy boot bottle openers as favors – love it!
