A Perfect Wedding Day on the Lake - a Kennedy-esque Styled Shoot Celebrates Classically Preppy Style

This celebration of Summer styled shoot designed and created exclusively for SanDiegoWedding.com, is a perfect Summer-on-the-lake day of style, fashion and wedding inspiration! Complete with gorgeous blue lake (a la the amazing - best-kept-secret-in-San Diego- Lakehouse Hotel & Resort in San Marcos), boats, green lawns, and even gorgeous secret-spot romantic cabanas accessible only by boat! With a classic blue, green and white lakeside palette, crisp, clean tailored satin gowns for the bride, and beautiful, blue and grey suits for the Kennedy lookalike groom, replete with charming bow ties and handkerchiefs. Naturally no celebration of preppy style would be complete without the unofficial WASP dog: Golden Retrievers! We love this celebration of what we call classic “Kennedy style”; inspired by JFK and Jackie’s fresh and clean look and the Kennedy clan’s Hyannis Port Summers on the water from long ago. This shoot highlights the good things in life; living surrounded by family and love, choosing a life of good works and public service, dogs, and spending plenty of time in the beautiful outdoors. We hope it inspires you to get outside and celebrate the good life, celebrated in the San Diego sun. Full credits of this talented collaboration of wedding artists below.
