Darlington House wedding is pastel perfect celebration of love, family and multi cultural wedding style in San Diego!

From Jenna and Kaj's proposal in Spain at the Parque del Retiro in Madrid to the beautiful European like village of La Jolla, California, this couple celebrated their love and family with a lovely, and love-filled, wedding. The historical Darlington House with its beautiful and rich, multi cultural decor [Andalusian Patio modeled after the style of Southern Spain with Roman arches, and benches and flooring made with Azulejo tile, Egyptian Patio with a fountain and colorful classic Egyptian tile lining the pool, classical English style Rose Garden and our favorite the Library with its dark wooden bookcases, Moroccan fireplace and a gorgeous staircase that invokes Moorish architecture] was the perfect wedding venue to represent these two and their adventurous spirits, with the inspiration for their weddings' theme coming from their travels in Spain. And to top it off, Jenna and Kai's accent of pastel colors of Pinks, Corals, Sage Green and Gold perfectly reflected the colors of the Venue.

Of course we all love how weddings bring families and friends together and collectively we all are there to witness and help create a new family. From sweet loving speeches, to tender moments with parents, and dancing and celebrating with friends, it's all a whirlwind of over-whelming and happy memories. And with extra special touches like the beautiful DIY items like hand made pottery, made by the groom's mom planted with succulents for guests gifts, and heirloom items like Jenna wearing her grandmother's bracelet, this wedding was one of kind and chock full of moments to last a life time! Enjoy and congrats to Jenna and Kai!!

San Diego Featured Wedding: Katie + Adam's New Family of Four

The blending of families in the pursuit of true happiness and love is always a marvelous sight. Katie and Adam wed at the San Diego Administration Center in front of just their closest friends and family. The setting was small, yet so full of bliss. And now, their little family is just that. Adam has two children of his own who stood right beside them throughout the ceremony, symbolizing the unity that this family now holds. What was once three is now four, and their family couldn't be more thrilled by their new tribe and all the love they look forward to for the rest of their lives!

Here is a little inspiration for all couples who wed and increase their family and their hearts by 'marrying' their true love's children. 

Children teach us all how to stay wrapped in the arms of love simply by the way they live each moment. They show us the truth and remind us to look out in wonder at the abundance and joy that life holds. To view everyone with the eyes of your heart and to look within and find the divine existing within yourself. Very importantly, living in love means being able to live in a place in your heart where you feel as safe and as loved as a child. And forming a circle of love that encompasses all your family and friends.

Congratulations to all the families celebrating a new marriage!
