Christy + Dan's Green Acre Campus Pointe Wedding

san diego wedding planner

Blue suede shoes, a lace dress from The Dress Theory in San Diego + one of the coolest brides ever, and that just made up one half of the duo that got married at Green Acre this past April’s Fools Day. Her groom? A tall, handsome dude with a passion for airplanes and traveling to funky places, like Iceland (YES, we totally bonded over drinks + our mutual obsession for this icy destination). I knew I was going to love these two from the second I met them.

Christy came to me with some of the raddest ideas + one of my all time favorite venues booked. Her family owns Wiens Family Cellars in Temecula (the spot my little sister said, “I do”) so they wanted to incorporate Wiens wine + beer (duh!). Since the vineyard sits next to rows + rows of orange groves, she wanted to bring in oranges in some way too at Green Acre Campus Pointe. Natalie from the Native Poppy instantly got our vision and she brought together an insane floral color palette + tiny oranges that melted my heart. It was perfect.

And the best part of all…? The ladies threw on some leather jackets + danced the night away. If only I could be half as cool. Congrats C + D!

Anna + Wes Married at Green Acre Campus Point!

San Diego Wedding Planner Anna + Wes we’re one of those dream couples to work with! From the first meeting I had with them, I knew they were something special. Their love for each other was contagious, and they showed that true love prevails through any circumstance. Wes landed himself in the hospital the day before the wedding, fighting his fight with CF. We pushed on and lucky for everyone, he got released a few hours before they were set to say, “I do,” and everything went off without a hitch! They inspire me in so many ways. They travel the world together, bike their way through life together and simply love each other.

Their wedding day was perfect. A light sprinkle in the morning and clear blue skies by the time the ceremony rolled around. They got married in Green Acre’s organic garden and wanted the simple beauty of the space to shine. They vowed to love each other through anything life threw their way. It was perfect.

Congrats to A + W! If only we can all find a love like the one you two have. xo

Amanda + Phil Married at The Martin Johnson House

San Diego Wedding Planner Amanda + Phil’s wedding was one that I looked forward to for a very long time! They were dream clients. You know, those ones that you just can’t get enough of. They got married at The Martin Johnson House on a perfect sunny February afternoon. The views were incredible and the setting was so intimate.

I remember when Amanda came to me early in the planning process wanting to incorporate succulents. She was so open to my quirkiness and suggestions to add artichokes to her arrangements, and I knew right then that we were going to get along just great.

One of my favorite parts about my job, is that I get to spend so much time meeting and talking with my couples. I really do get to know them and in most cases we become such good friends. This goes for Amanda + Phil. Their love for each other was contagious. Their patience toward each other was commendable. Their enthusiasm toward the untraditional was refreshing. Their ability to light up a room was easy.

Watching Phil walk Amanda down the aisle was beautiful. Their desire to do something different and special to them was something I will never forget. I am all about embracing different and being a bit quirky myself. So I was so excited when they decided to walk down the aisle together. It was a sweet moment they will cherish together forever. After all, weddings are about celebrating being “together” right? I love this.

Amanda + Phil, you left an impression on me. Your love for one another is unlike anything I’ve ever seen and I am so happy you both found each other. Congrats on being married!

Kathryn + Travis- La Jolla Engagement

San Diego Wedding Planner What happens when a California boys meets a Carolina girl? They fall deeply in love, get engaged and start planning the wedding of a life time. Kathryn + Travis are that couple. The couple that radiates beauty and love for each other. The couple that met through a friend only to find that they were destined to be together forever. Some of us only dream of that love, and they get to live out that dream. I couldn’t be more happy for them!

I am so thankful for Devon Donnahoo Photography for letting me come along for the day! Kathryn was dolled up in the most beautiful gown from The Dress Theory. I was there to help with the shoot and also witness one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen on the La Jolla coast.

Congratulations Kathryn + Travis!

Carli + David's Engagement Session- La Jolla, CA

“We love because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19

San Diego Wedding Planner

When Carli and David came to me saying they wanted to take unique pictures not just at the beach, but in a cute little town setting, I knew La Jolla Shores would be the perfect spot! With its quaint and colorful buildings and close proximity to the salty ocean waves, I knew without a doubt this would be a hit. With David being from Colorado and Carli from Temecula Wine Country, they strived to get something different, and that was certainly accomplished with the talented Elyse Barton of Plum & Oak Photo behind the camera!

I could not be more excited to be a part of my sister’s wedding day this upcoming July at Wiens Winery! Enjoy these sweet, genuine and authentic engagement photos- I can’t stop smiling seeing the love portrayed!

They trusted me with a paint brush and some wood to create signs that enveloped their love for Christ and love for each other. 1 John 4:19 was an easy choice as it simply states the foundation of love.

They did not want to miss out on showcasing their playful side and love for vans shoes. Not to mention that Carli has to stand on her tip-toes to reach David! Such a fun portrait of their personalities!

In just 6 months Carli is going to be a married woman. I am excited to see what God has in store for her and David and their fun-filled future ahead of them!
