Fabulous and Fancy Mexican Fiesta Meets Coastal Cali Styled Wedding Inspiration Shoot

Living in San Diego we are lucky enough to be heavily immersed and intertwined with the rich and historic culture of Mexico. From food, to music, to architecture, we celebrate Mexico everywhere! This wedding styled shoot celebrates the vibrant, the bright, and the bold colors of traditional Mexico that infuse San Diego with a good part of its charm.  This super talented group of wedding artists came together in La Jolla to brainstorm something fresh and highlight elements from our neighbors to the south creating fantastic inspiration for the couple looking to combine rustic elements with a splash of bold color and a hint of Mexican influences. We love this shoot because it takes elements that traditionally represent Mexican culture and weaves them in with a cool coastal California wedding vibe. We could say "Olé!" all day to this beautiful style!

Finally! It’s the Alpaca-filled Wedding Styled Shoot We've Been Waiting For

Alpacas!! This adorable, alpaca-filled, wedding shoot is a new favorite [sorry dogs in weddings!] and was shot on an alpaca farm… need we say more? These fluffy, adorable creatures make their appearance next to the bride and groom throughout the entire shoot and we just can’t get enough. For those brides and grooms looking for unique, unconventional wedding ideas for their big day then an alpaca farm wedding might just be for you. This shoot incorporated some amazing rustic decor with a wood table, bright pink florals and some fun orange pillow decor on the white chairs that added great color and some stylish [naturally] wedding cakes by Sweet Cheeks Baking Co.. Enjoy these huggable alpacas and all the bright happy colors that foreshadow Spring's imminent arrival, all in this super fun wedding shoot below!

Skipping a tie on your groom’s look is an easy and efficient way to achieve that casual, laid-back look you are searching for.

San Diego is a wedding nirvana unto itself.

We still love the floral crown here, we love it for its roots in the So Cal hippie culture, for its natural beauty and its 'I love the flower girl' attitude. Long live the flower crown [sorry Vogue weddings]! Today's Color Palette Board is a stunning orange and pink floral crown photographed by SheWanders Photography wedding photographers extraordinaire. 

A bright and beautiful wedding full of color (and superheroes) lights up the day!

Have you ever walked into a wedding and instantly felt like it reflected the couple you know and love perfectly? That each element shined with the style and energy of your friends who are about to embark on their exciting journey down the aisle?

This super fun [and super in love!] couple’s wedding, planned by local favorite Susanne Duffy of Crown Weddings and Events and shot by the ever popular Tim Otto Photography completely captured this dynamic couples, well...dynamism! 

This bright and happy wedding at the gorgeous and world class Estancia La Jolla was the perfect blend of beautiful bold colors which reflected the bride’s personality, all infused with the undeniable love between these two soul mates. 

With a gorgeous outdoor La Jolla [there's a reason it is called 'the jewel'] ceremony this wedding was nothing short of a modern day fairytale.

After the ceremony guests enjoyed a evening of great food from this world famous resort, great company and music that lasted till the wee hours of the night. 

Oh and one minor thing....apparently the groom and his groomsmen were all super heroes in disguise! It was, by all accounts, a day full of beauty, power, elegance, and, of course, true love!
