We have known Shawnna and Andrew for quite some time now since we’ve moved to San Diego. So naturally, this was a very happy day for all of us! To keep with their low-key style, they planned a backyard-style wedding just minutes from their house at the Lazy V Ranch, which just so happened to belong to one of their good friends. It was such a cute property with collected signs and memorabilia from over the years, and the gorgeous, towering trees made a perfect focal point for all their festivities, which transformed the place into a magical setting at dark. But beyond the charming details all around us, what made this wedding a treat for us was getting to hang out with great friends all day long, including one of our favorite stylists, Katie M, who made Shawnna look absolutely amazing! Andrew, whom we usually see in work clothes, also cleaned up very nicely! We’re so glad to have been part of this beautiful day and celebrate our friends’ new chapter together.

What truly made this a backyard wedding was how much their friends and families contributed to putting this day together. Even the head tables were handmade by Andrew himself! Every shabby-chic detail and bite of food was prepared by the people who loved them most, and Shawnna’s daughter even sang the song for their First Dance. We loved every little thing that they worked so hard to make perfect for the day, and we’re happy to have been able to help them remember such a fabulous event. Congratulations, Shawnna and Drew!

One of our favorite things about San Diego is the rich history and architecture found in the many missions that have been around for centuries. But if you’re going to get married in one, why not do so at the first mission ever built in California? That’s exactly where Jennifer and Chris decided to tie the knot, at the Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala (founded in 1769). It was such a treat to walk on the ancient stone-laid floors and witness something as timeless as a wedding at place where so many had done before. Everything from the hand-painted walls and church bells to the sculptural fountain and garden were stunning (especially our gorgeous bride!), which made this wedding such a beautiful affair. Their guests celebrated outdoors at the Bali Hai with the San Diego skyline glistening on the water behind them. It was a touching and festive night, and let’s just say Mexican-Italians sure know how to party!

Ombré florals, Art Deco details, and a historical landmark make a winning combo. It's safe to say that this bride has magnificent taste! Fendy and Kevin put together a beautiful wedding in Los Angeles at the Park Plaza Hotel, and every detail was perfect. We loved the sparkly, gold bridesmaids dresses from Sue Wong, and of course, the swoon-worthy ombré flowers that made everything all the more charming. But beyond all the pretty things that made this day incredible was how much Fendy and Kevin lit up at the sight of each other—tears of joy and all.

The Park Plaza is truly a unique and gorgeous venue. Besides all the intricate historical details, one of the coolest things was the grand staircase that the bride walked down to meet her groom for the ceremony (talk about a grand entrance)! And as if everything wasn’t picture perfect already, Fendy even made pretty little ribbon streamers to celebrate the final walk down the aisle! Of course, an even more beautiful and impressive display of crafted details awaited her guests at the reception hall, where all their tables were numbered after important dates and numbers from their relationship (like the number of miles between them during their long distance relationship), and the lovely gold and ombré details continued everywhere the eye could see. Seriously, I’m so in love with this wedding.

We love seeing families coming together to celebrate, and this wedding was a fine example of that. My favorite part was when the bride and groom decided that their wedding cake had to be shared with their collective, big family, so after cutting the cake, they went around the dance floor and fed their family and friends! It was such a happy and beautiful day, which I’m sure will be talked about and cherished for many, many years to come. Thank you for sharing it with us!
