Local Brewery Proves to Be the Perfect Backdrop for a Richly Colored San Diego Wedding!

Not only are we obsessed with this couple's obvious pure bliss with each other, but they also picked one of our favorite, fun and unique local venues for their special day. Kendra and Jason Goda chose to celebrate their wedding day at Stone Brewery Company in Liberty Station. Kendra's inner beauty just radiates through her perfectly executed makeup [we love a bold lip!], lustrous dark hair, and beautifully tailored A-line wedding gown. Jason also caught our eye with his dapper suit and tie. The deep burgundy and wine colored details are the perfect accents to Kendra's 'Snow White' beauty and Jason's his classic tie and boutonnierre matched the wedding floral colors, along with his pocket watch, completed his polished look. The two had a perfect [and gorgeous!] evening with a fairytale-like happy ending, and clearly a really fun party!

Kenneth Winston always see brides start their dress shopping with styles that are understated and maybe even more conservative in styling. But as they've proven time and again, once a bride sparkles, they'll never settle for anything less.

With over 30 years if experience, the people behind this charming collection say "The beauty is in the details. Every design element, every intricate lace pattern, every crystal bead we put on our dresses are tirelessly thought out. After 30 years we've become masters of our craft. We create designs across the whole spectrum: From A-line ball gowns with 30,000 crystals beads to seamless all-over lace trumpet silhouettes showcasing our fine expertise in pattern making. More importantly everything flows, every piece and element makes sense. This makes our designs easy to wear and allows our brides to effortlessly walk down the aisle knowing we've taken care of all the details."

With this season's collection Kenneth Winston focused on revisiting traditional build ups and illusion backs. They took what is usually considered conservative design elements, and turned them into something sexy in a classy way, working with low back illusion lace elements, and playing with how the under layer satin slip lining could be shaped to be more revealing, but still elegant with the soft lace illusion layer. They deepened necklines and beaded beautiful new patterns to further shape silhouettes showing off and accentuating curves. And we love the results!
