Here's a photo from the Native American styled shoot we did a while back showcasing gorgeous rustic native colors with an awesome photo by She Wanders Photography. Love these bold rich colors for an outdoor wedding setting in San Diego - all the local wedding venues that have trees, rolling fields and lots of grass are the perfect palette for boldness.
If you are in love with vintage style and are planning a wedding with a mid century feel to it you'll love these 1950s and 1960s era acrylic jewelry by Vintage Jewelry Lounge. Clear acrylic jewelry ads just the right pop of fun and style without overwhelming the rest of your bridal ensemble.
Carolyn DeKoven, owner of Vintage Jewelry Lounge, really knows her vintage style and has an inventory of vintage jewelry that is truly comprehensive! Check out her vintage jewelry but remember to grab a piece if you love it because these one-of-a-kind treasures go fast!

There are few venues as quintessentially San Diegan as the El Cortez Hotel. Towering above everything else in 'uptown San Diego', this landmark Art Deco building, with its memorable neon titled rooftop, first opened its doors in 1927 to rave reviews and a loyal clientele of dancers, diners and revelers. Shuttered for years then opened by a couple of visionary developers, The El Cortez's ambiance, with its richly designed and upgraded gold gilded Don Room, is a beautiful place to celebrate love. And that's just what Christina and Ryan did!
With pops of bright color and gold accents to match the Don Room and plenty of delicious food, tons of fun, and loving family, this event was truly a night to remember!

Not wanting to miss out on every second they can get with their loved ones, many couples are foregoing the standard 4 hour reception in place of an all-night bash. But one reason to make a grand exit prior to your guests leaving, is to capture that unforgettable exit in a gorgeous classic car!
Leaving your wedding may be bittersweet but classic cars make the moment more enjoyable. Not to mention the amazing prop and backdrop a snazzy car can be in your portraits! Check out our wedding transportation resources directory here.

Antique doors, vintage rentals, beautiful florals and Jack Daniels Groom's cake ..Kelsey and Robert's charming outdoor wedding at The Inn At Rancho Santa Fe was a lovely (and fun!) celebration of style, love and family and friends.
This thoughtful Bride considered every aspect of the day to make their guests comfortable and entertained throughout their celebration; as guests arrived they found lemonade, bottled water and parasols waiting for them. The ceremony site was beautifully decorated with vintage rentals (oh that gorgeous double door!), cascading floral arrangements, and a metal arch with a chandelier. At cocktail hour, vintage seating areas were scattered on the lawn for guests to mingle and enjoy. Handmade bar signs listed the signature cocktails, bride’s and groom’s favorites.
An open air photo booth next to cocktails was a real favorite with guests. Photos hung on a vintage velvet backdrop made the perfect photo gallery. Their seated reception featured specialty lace overlays, adorable table numbers and menu cards, and personalized macaron favors and instead of escort cards, Kelsey and Robert rented an antique door to display the seating chart. Cake and dessert tables (one for Kelsey and one for Robert with a bottle of Jack Daniels as the groom’s cake- you gotta love a Jack Daniels Groom's cake!) was a real crowd favorite! At the end of the day the guests went home with a lovely lavender sachet and wonderful memories of a night filled with fun, laughter, dancing and of course, love.
