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.

Jonathan & Sarah at Rancho Bernardo Courtyrad

We can’t get enough of Sarah and Jonathan’s wedding photos! The two tied the knot at Rancho Bernardo Courtyard with a reception full of countless details and cute decor. They used pineapples and succulents as centerpieces and other accents around the courtyard. Along with cute signage at the bar and cake table, they made table number signs with adorable pictures of the bride and groom when they were kids.

Nick & Cori at Darlington House

Cori and Nick created the perfect combination of elegance and fun at their beautiful wedding at the Darlington House. The two got married under an arch covered with gorgeous flowers in the rose garden, followed by cocktail hour on the patio. Once the reception was ready to begin, the rose garden had been completely transformed from the ceremony to reception area. With a color scheme of white, black and gold, the pink and burgundy flowers became the perfect accents. The photobooth was a huge hit, along with the late night donut and coffee station!corinickmarried-266

Ashley and Jordan at San Diego Botanic Garden

We’re so happy we could spend the day with Ashley and Jordan at the San Diego Botanic Garden! The day started off with a beautiful ceremony in the Walled Garden, followed by cocktail hour in the Lawn House and the reception on the Gazebo Lawn. The bride and groom sat with the bridal party at a head table, which was adorned with garland and pretty signage. A chandelier hung above the bride and groom’s seats and market lighting was displayed across the lawn. They incorporated the floral theme of the venue by giving their guests flower seeds as wedding favors.

Not only was this a gorgeous wedding, but it was also full of fun and creative ideas. Instead of a traditional guestbook, guests wrote notes to the bride and groom on jenga pieces. The couple also prepared a special wedding coloring book with crayons and set them at each place setting on the kids table. Along with a two tiered wedding cake, there was a delicious assortment of gourmet desserts for the bride and groom to share with their guests!

Nicole and Chris at Mt Woodson Castle

Nicole and Chris spent their special day at Mt Woodson Castle. The bridesmaids wore pretty pastels and held gorgeous bouquets that even matched the flower girl’s crowns. We loved all the décor at this wedding, especially the flower vases and lanterns as centerpieces. The white table runners and hanging napkins looked great on the dark brown farm tables. Even the ‘Mr. & Mrs.’ sign on the sweetheart table matched the dining table décor. Place cards were displayed on white window shutters placed behind four cups full of flowers that spelled out ‘love.’
In addition, their wedding cake was absolutely beautiful! It was a three tiered cake with the same gorgeous coral flowers that went along with their color scheme. They used the cutest gold cake stand and gold ‘love’ cake topper too. As favors, the bride and groom had guests write their names on mason jars to fill up throughout the night and take home with them. What a great way for their guests to remember such an amazing night!
