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.

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!

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!

Marguerite & Julian at Mt. Woodson Castle

Marguerite and Julian had such a fun Disney themed wedding reception at Mt. Woodson Castle! They decorated the tables with Mickey Mouse shaped confetti, cute Disney quotes and other Disney figurines. We love how they assigned names of different Disneyland rides to the dining tables instead of normal table numbers, making it such a unique experience for their guests. It’s safe to say that the castle was definitely the perfect venue choice for this theme.
