Hayley & Brett had a beautiful wedding at one of my favorite venues where I have planned and coordinated many weddings, Martin Johnson House in La Jolla.  It’s right on the ocean and has one of my favorite views in San Diego! The plum and navy color palette was a gorgeous complement to the natural landscape.  Check out their spring wedding day and more details below!

Hayley’s grandmother couldn’t be present, so she attended the wedding via FaceTime!  Hayley had her on the iPad while she was getting ready, and even had a corsage sent to her so she felt like a part of the big day.  How sweet is that?!

Brett was one of the most relaxed grooms I’ve met!  And he had great groom style in his navy blue suit.

Hayley & Brett made time for a first look together before the ceremony.  They were able to enjoy their cocktail hour with their guests and didn’t have to rush through portraits.

What a gorgeous mix of light and bold hues in this bridal bouquet!

One of my favorite parts of the wedding were these personalized notes on the place settings.  Hayley and Brett wrote each guest a little note to open when they sat down for dinner.  So thoughtful!

They even wrote notes for each other to open!

Leo Carrillo Ranch – San Diego Wedding

Amanda & Wences are one of the cutest WED couples and we had so much fun at their Leo Carrillo Ranch wedding! These two high school sweethearts got married on their 11 year anniversary.  Doesn’t get much cuter than that!  These San Diego natives were living in Chicago before the wedding, so I first met Amanda over Skype to chat about all the details.  Amanda and Wences brought their fabulous photographer, Ashley Biess of Artistrie Co., to San Diego for their big day.  I am oh-so-glad they did because she was a dream to work with…just look at these photos (heart eyes!).  This wedding was a blast because of the laid-back, family barbeque vibe.  The couple focused on what was really important to them:  spending the day celebrating with family & friends and eating good food!  SOHO taco cooked up fresh tacos, guests grabbed their own drinks or visited the bartender, the Mobile Photo Booth was full, the lawn was busy with Jenga and Cornhole games, and the dance floor was rockin’!  (The venue’s peacocks even came by to check things out!)  I highly recommend Leo Carrillo Ranch if you’re looking for an outdoor San Diego wedding venue.  Check out the highlights from the wedding day, and the press it received on Ruffled Blog & San Diego Style Weddings (also in print)!

Carissa & Greg were friends in high school, then reconnected years later via Facebook.  They had a gorgeous, romantic, ethereal wedding in La Jolla at Martin Johnson House.  This gem of a venue is tucked away on the Scripps Institute of Oceanography campus.  It’s one of our favorites!  Check out some highlights from their big day below and make sure you spend some time gazing at Carissa’s gorgeous wedding dress with pink accents…and their adorable flower dog!

Taryn & Eddie’s La Jolla Wedding by WED

November 27, 2013 7:19 am Published by Leave your thoughts

I am so happy I had the opportunity to work with Taryn & Eddie!  This fun couple met while working together in San Diego.  Little did Taryn or Eddie know that this was where they would find their future spouse.  Their relationship changed from co-workers to friends, then slowly to dating leading to engagement… and now, newlyweds!  And, what a picture perfect couple they are!

Enjoy the photos and details about their big day below.

T&E were married on September 28, 2013 at Darlington House in La Jolla, California.  If you are considering an outdoor wedding in San Diego, definitely check out this gorgeous venue. This historic villa has amazing tile, brick, and architecture.  The ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were all outdoors, so guests were able to enjoy the amazing coastal breeze we are lucky to have here in Southern California.

The bar was located inside the library- such an awesome backdrop!

The low centerpieces brought just enough color to an already lush garden backdrop.  A colorful floral arrangement in a hobnail jar along with succulents & candles in small mason jars complemented the surroundings without overdoing it.

We made use of the wrought iron bars to hang bunting flags with guest seating assignments.  Guests were able to easily locate their table and it looked cute with the engagement photos pinned on top.

It was important to Taryn to incorporate Mexican culture into her decor.  Her cousin, Marget, designed the invitations to include a papel picado motif (Mexican cut paper).  Taryn’s bridal bouquet was colorful and soft, including succulents, roses, and dahlias.

Papel picado flags were lit up by string lights over the guest tables and dance floor.

One major perk of the Darlington House is the incredible bridal suite!  I could easily live in this room…the wallpaper, windows with lace coverings, and pink sofas…love!

Petula Pea Photography  www.petulapea.com //  WED (weddings.events.design.) http://www.wedsandiego.com // Instagram:  wedsandiego

THE DRESS!  Taryn had straps added on to this beauty.  Love the vintage, timeless look of the dress paired with old Hollywood hair & make up…stunning!

Taryn wore coral heels and kicked them off later in the evening for some comfy flip flops!

Eddie enjoyed the groom’s lounge and obeyed orders to stay put until his blushing bride was ready for their first look.  His coral tie & boutonniere added the perfect pop of color.

Taryn had the great idea of using her dad’s classic Mercedes for some photo ops!  Don’t they look good next to that car?!

The bling!

Taryn’s younger brothers gave quite a toast where we learned about the bossy, sassy side of our sweet bride!  I think the sign is quite fitting, even for myself.  😉
