Coronado Wedding Celebrates the Marriage of Indonesian and Mexican Cultures with Flair!

This San Diego wedding day was classic and romantic, with a Catholic Church wedding ceremony followed by a family and friend filled reception at he Coronado Community Center. A celebration of two cultures, the bride is Indonesian and the groom's family hails from Mexico. The wedding colors were a confetti like mix of grey, white, green, gold, rose gold and the bride's beautiful dress was handmade in Jakarta, Indonesia by a family friend. The food was catered by Mexico City Cuisine, to honor the groom's Mexican heritage, and oooooh there was a churro station for dessert! This gorgeous couple was nothing but smiles throughout the day and we can't help but smile along.

South of the Border, Down Mexico Way, a Charming Ensenada Wine Country Vow Renewal Celebrates Love

The wine country in Mexico is nothing short of spectacular. The “Rita del Vino” was full of so many beautiful colors and landscapes making it the perfect setting for Jamie & Manny's vow renewal. After 13 years of marriage, Jamie & Manny wanted to get back to the basics and celebrate what was truly important between the two of them. They remember their original wedding day as kind of stressful and that style decisions were somewhat taken over by the opinions of their family members. This time around, Jamie & Manny wanted to be comfortable and have the celebration THEY wanted. So they headed south, leaving their 3 beautiful boys at home, and traveled across the boarder to the stunning Encuentro Guadalupe winery for a weekend escape to renew their vows. They had their ceremony on the balcony of their suite and enjoyed every minute of their celebration this time with just the 2 of them.
