Chelsea + Ryan 2018 (Rustic Meets Elegant at Scripps Seaside Forum)

We’re back! We welcome the year with new goals to chase powered by refreshed hands and hearts albeit with the same love for all things weddings and flowers. But first (perhaps after coffee?), here’s a look back at one of our 2018 favorites - Chelsea and Ryan’s stunning wedding at Scripps Seaside Forum. It was a day that was equal parts rustic and elegant, a look that’s easier said than done but perfectly achieved thanks to an awesome team of vendors (special shout out to planner Willmus Weddings!). Sharing Chelsea and Ryan’s photos below as captured by Brogen Jessup Photography and we’ll leave you to choose which detail you like the most. We’ve taken our pick though- Chelsea’s effortlessly beautiful glow that’s rooted in the love shared that day.

April + Troy (Greenery + White Blooms + 100% Love at The Dana)

There's just something about outdoor weddings that always makes our hearts skip a beat and as partial as this may seem when done under San Diego's signature blue sky, we feel like it's always extra special. April and Troy's wedding is definitely no exemption. Love was in the air that day and in all the lovely details, styling, and stunningly dressed guests captured perfectly by Garrett Richardson Photography whose ability to tell a story with every single photograph left us in awe. Picking which photos to share was such a challenging task because every shot is more beautiful than the next! But in all the thoughtful details that made April and Troy's day a celebration to remember, it was the look of love, contentment, and complete trust in each other (scroll down to the last photo!) that easily won our hearts over. After all, no detail is more important than love itself.

Andrea + Jared (A Romantic Hilton Torrey Pines Wedding)

What makes a perfect wedding? Is that even possible in the first place? What is your non negotiable? The flowers? Venue? Time of day? So many details go into planning your wedding and with good reason too, it probably will be one of your biggest milestones and most special day of your life, a foundation for all other wonderful moments to come. With all the planning and stress leading up to your special day, it's easy to lose yourself. But while all the different details are definitely important, love simply outshines them all. Looking at the beautiful photos taken by Christine Skari Photography, it's easy to see the love that radiates from Andrea and Jared. And that's what we love most about their wedding... that in the midst of all the beauty during their day, the simplest most important recipe shone bright through and through.
