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!

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.  😉
