California Outdoor Wedding with Subtle Boho Vibe Shows the Best of the West Style

This lovely outdoor wedding showcases California wedding dreaming at it's finest! Local San Diego wedding photographer Bob Hoffman travels to Walnut Creek for a gorgeous outdoor wedding with a sweet ranch wedding with a chic boho vibe.

This special day was filled with pure bliss, just like the groom's last name! There were lavender bridesmaids dresses, the wildflower/succulent bouquets, and the Bride's two beautiful dresses (simple fitted for ceremony, lace roses with long sleeves for the party). The details of this wedding were dreamy, boho-chic and subtle so that the focus was on this beautiful couple's love for each other, as well as the amazing surroundings of Walnut Grove.

All the elements come together to make an extra special rainy wedding day shine!

Sometimes it rains on your wedding day, even in San Diego, but you know what...with love, a great perspective, a wedding venue as gorgeous as the Temecula Creek Inn and all the elements coming together like this, it just doesn't matter! 

This happy bride says "Our inspiration for the wedding day was nature; and nature showed up big time with a very rare rainy stormy spring day in Temecula! Our original vision was of a sunny outdoor event surrounded by trees and greenery with bright rich spring colored flowers. We wanted a relaxed outdoor gathering that showcased our beautiful venue and our love for nature. We stuck to our nature theme with plantable seed paper invitations, sustainable menu provided by our venue, colorful flowers everywhere and lawn games and fire pits to keep people spread out enjoying the day. We incorporated both of our inspirations into the wedding décor; I wanted a boho feel with Moroccan colors and textures and my husband wanted a rustic feel with woods and natural touches. We named our style ‘eclectic rustic bohemian’. We were a little non-traditional and had no groomsmen or bridesmaids, and my sister was our ceremony officiant. We had no true color scheme, I just wanted bright vibrant spring colors richly saturating the whole wedding, the venue and flowers were really the focus."

This happy bride continues..."Some of my favorite elements were things that reflected us; gold silverware and multicolored glassware really showed off my personal style and the wood grain cake, wooden details, and amber glass vases were some of my husbands favorites. Our coordinator/designer/florist really helped bring my vision into reality and made sure to have all the little details we wanted. Our cake was a simple white with a wood grain look draped with our colorful flowers, it was one of our all-time favorite parts of the wedding look. We also incorporated little themes into the details that were really just for my husband and I. We love the Southern California hummingbirds that represent spring and nature to us so we hid little hummingbirds in many aspects, from our invitation, to our personalized wedding favor fleece blankets, to wooden signs. We also incorporated mixed metals and golds into the décor to accent the yellow gold in our wedding rings."

Wedding Crush Wednesday Heads North with Ian + Michaela and a Lighthouse Wedding

The Piedras Blancas Light Station in San Simeon, CA is a beautiful spot on its own. And when you add in a couple like Michaela and Ian Robbins to the scene, you get a breathtaking affair. The two chose this destination for their wedding day, and what a perfect decision that was. Their first look was captured in the lighthouse before the ceremony which made the event that much more intimate and special. The ceremony took place on the edge of a cliff-- how cool is that? It gets cooler. They got all of their guests to gather at the bottom of the hill and walk up together while Michaela's father played the flute. Those are images that they will cherish forever!
