A new take on Pink and Blue makes for a Sweetly Romantic Grand Tradition Wedding

With vibrant melon pink bridesmaids and florals, sharp-as-a-tack blue-suited groomsmen, a couple deeply in love and the fairytale setting of Grand Tradition; this charming wedding in San Diego North County was set to be a romantic classic right from the start. We already know that this couple is going to have the most magical and fairytale-like marriage. Christian and Courtney had an obviously magical wedding ceremony and reception. We are swept away by their sweetly romantic theme. And we love the fresh summer-like youthful feel of their decor and colors! They had us at the "First comes love then comes cake" sign on their dessert table!

And yes, their emotional responses were a good sign that these two have something special between them as well. You know that a couple is so far fallen for each other when BOTH are crying tears of joy together!

However, it's HOW this wedding came about that we know their many years together are about to be the most magical yet. See, Cristian proposed to Courtney at a place that is full of nothing but pure magic. Disneyland. If this is how this couple started out, we know they're in for the [Disney-like] ride of their lives.

Romance Ahoy! Check out this Charming Nautical Themed Wedding Styled Shoot

An oceanfront nautical theme wedding styled shoot navigates maritime elements into one lovely day by the sea!

We love seashells by the seashore and when you add in two people in love with their love for the ocean you get a truly nautical affair. Sophia and Rado met on a cruise line where they both worked, fell in love and traveled the world together so this real couple's styled shoot had to reflect their love of the sea. With natural elements of seashells and sea life with globes and colored glass, this wedding styled shoot has these two ocean lovers floating away in a vessel of love like the fabled Owl and the Pussycat!

Beautiful moody blue ocean wedding styled shoot brings mermaid style to life

A long time ago when Taryn Nagy Holland, lead photographer of Great Woodland Photography, was getting married, she discovered the Shack at Windansea in La Jolla and knew the location just begged to be properly styled and photographed. This Moody Ocean wedding styled shoot is a beautiful reflection of the subtle colors and energies of the ocean at La Jolla and of some beautiful wedding decor and elements brought together by one talented team! 

Each participant in this shoot wrote a little bit of their vision into creating this moody ocean shoot's style:

Cherished Rentals - The muted colors of the Terrain Collection from Cherished Rentals was an easy choice for this seaside tablescape. Each setting was adorned with intricate vintage silverware and chargers, then paired with an eclectic mix of mid-century glassware.

Sweet Emma Lou - Sweet Emma Lou cooked up a dark chocolate semi naked cake adorned with beautiful florals and edible gold leaf. In addition, we created a intimate cake table set up with the help of amazing rentals with a macrame backdrop.

Black Lotus Design - Black Lotus Design provided the bridal bouquet, boutonniere, table centerpieces, arch flowers, garlands, flowers for the cake display and custom-dyed ocean-inspired azure ombre textiles.

Dapper Vintage Rentals - Dapper Vintage Rentals providing speciality vintage rentals in San Diego, CA for weddings, soirees, photoshoots and events. Husband & Wife team, Josh & Maheli founded Dapper after planning their own wedding and giving it that vintage touch. Dapper vintage rentals provided unique chairs for the table setting set-up, mint blue settle for the lounge, and cake display table.

TheMINTERY, founded by Angela Fowler, is a creative studio specializing in event styling + furniture revival - creating, building, and refurbishing personalized pieces to bring out the unique face of each project. She constructed a 12' arch from found branches courtesy of a local ranch in Alpine, refurbished and styled the Queen Anne table used in the tablescape and created the bride's shell crown.

Made by Meer - Nikki Meer, owner of Made by Meer, created a watercolor invitation suite with a blue wash to mimic the ocean. She hand painted place cards and a table number to match. A wooden "Cheers" sign adorned the cake table and a fabric love quote was painted for the bride and groom to hold.
