Downtown Gallery Styled Wedding Shoot Brings the trend of gorgeous Brick Industrial Texture and Rich Watercolor Pastels Together

Industrial hard meets pretty is so hot right now in fashion and editorial! And at the exciting Sparks Gallery in Downtown San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter, the rough brick and deep wood contrasting with the exciting and bright colors in the artwork make the perfect set up for the dynamism of Justice Photography. This shoot is the perfect blend of strong lines and textures and soft colors and styling. Bonus: it even has a gorgeous geode cake, floral decorated picture frames [love!] and crystal place settings in Pantone's Color of the Year for 2108 Ultra Violet! This super design team is so on trend for weddings and style and we think they've created the perfect blend of the masculine and the feminine with this dramatic and fresh wedding styled shoot! Enjoy!

Melissa Barrad, Owner of I DO Weddings and Events and Lead Stylist in the shoot says, "Once I visited the Sparks Gallery, I knew it was a special place. I loved the lighting, and of course, that they feature California artists. With that in mind, we pooled together California based vendors and San Diego natives, like myself, to create a unique romantic feel with a laid-back vibe. We wanted to work with colors that would enhance the art, not take away from it." 

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!

San Diego Featured Wedding: Daniel + Chad's University Celebration

"Love at first sight," can sound like quite the cliche. However, for these two, it was truly just that. How do we know? The final wedding gift.

Daniel and Chad have been dating for over 11 years and engaged for 6 of those. Throughout this time, the two travelled and went out and grew together as one. So, on the day of their wedding, Daniel found it only fitting that he showers Chad with gifts. The final gift from Daniel was given during his vows. What was it you ask?

A cake topper. 

Not just any cake topper. But a cake topper that he had bought without Chad even know on their first date in Pacific Beach. He had held onto it for all those years because he knew he had found the one.

The saying must be true. When you know, you know!
