real weddings :: Katy+ Dan

 The Prado Balboa Park is truly San Diego’s guiltiest pleasure for wedding venues. The beautiful history which enriches the architecture of the museums and the botanical gardens, is a wonderful backdrop for any wedding. The famous San Diego Park, is enriched with art and culture; it offers seventeen museums and multiple gardens that not only attract tourists from all over the world, but it has become a hot spot during wedding season.

 Katy and Dan expressed their warm love for each other in the late summer, and used Balboa Park to their advantage. Shades of purple and splashes of yellow, were the color scheme for this romantic wedding; having it all tie in with the Prado’s blue doors and wood floors, all photographed beautifully by Betwixt Studio and coordinated by CZ Events

Showered with candles, packed with vintage suitcases and the brass covered decor all contributed to the romantic setting. A sweet detail that the bride added was the remembrance of her little flower girls; giving them each a little suitcase of their own, beholding crayons, stickers, and other treats. This sweet idea is always fun for the invited children to keep them entertained meanwhile the adults are at play.

“To get the full value of joy, you must have someone to divide it with.”
Mark Twain

This quote truly fit in with the theme for Katy and Dan’s celebration. Before tying the knot, the love birds traveled around the world; everywhere from the evergreen Seattle, WA to the buzz worthy streets of Hong Kong in China. Traveling with your loved one is sincerely practiced in this couple’s hearts. If you notice how adorable their cake-topper is; the bride stands on vintage suitcases as she smooches her other half.

real weddings :: sara + david

The wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all took place in the La Jolla Presbyterian Church, right near the heart of the village. Her color scheme, blended beautifully with the So Cal atmosphere. Hues of peach, cream and turquoise really brightened up the room and allowed everyone to feel at ease and love in the room. Having the entire celebration in one area, was convenient for the lovely couple, especially since the majority of the family relatives came from all over the country–no one would have to worry about getting lost! After exchanging their vows, the newlyweds, soon moved to Washington D.C. but still remain with So Cal in their hearts.

Sara’s choice in expressing her love for La Jolla, CA genuinely showed throughout the entire celebration. Everything from the white stucco of the chapel, to the peach and gold tones resembling the soft brown sand of La Jolla. Some sweet details which were added by Indulge Flowers, such as the thousand of tiny seashells spread across the table decor, and even some star fish laid under a glass plate on the cake stand. One can surely see that all the little details which are put in a wedding, is what makes it even more beautiful. Thanks to CZ events for making this wedding a success.
