Romantic Winter Wedding Styled Shoot in Our Fave Little Mountain Town Outside San Diego; Julian!

Nestled away in the mountains of Southern California is the cozy little country town of Julian. Sacred Mountain Julian is the perfect venue for nuptials at any time of year, but it will truly steal your heart as the perfect setting for a Wintry themed, mountain wedding, with, of course a gorgeous couple and a beautiful Black Beauty horse model! 

Lesli and Spencer, have been married for six years, but took advantage of this opportunity to relive their newlywed days and remember exactly what it was like when they first said "I do". Being that Spencer serves in the US Marine Corps, photographer Katie Hammond couldn't think of a more deserving couple to feature in her styled wedding shoot. It's lovely to see the love and fire are alive and well (and going strong!) after six years of marriage! 

Drenched in rich tones of burgundy and gold, my shoot featured stunning details like two pairs of Badgley Mischka heels dripping in jewels, vast views of mountains and fields, gorgeous black horses, and black bridesmaid dresses (and they TOTALLY pulled it off!).

Winter Wonderland Wedding Inspiration Wows even in Sunny San Diego!

The luxurious and refreshing scent of pine trees, traditional Winter colors of silver, burgundy and white with forest green, charming pinecones styled into the paper goods, and evergreen sprigs all come together to celebrate that all Mother Earth does not diminish in Winter! And when you add in real life couple Bryan and Megan, the beautiful rustic furnishings, what has to be Megan's favorite sweater, sparkly Christmas ornament bauble, cookies [for Santa perhaps?] and a puppy, well you can see why we love this Winter Wonderland shoot!  Happy Holidays to all! 

Walking in a Winter Wedding Wonderland at The Centre Escondido

It's the time of year when the world falls in love! And this wedding styled shoot at The Centre Escondido - the San Diego area's chicest wedding and special event venue - is the perfect way to step into a Winter Wonderland of holiday style! With hues of cool winter blues and bold Christmas reds, the cutest place setting cookies ever, and specialty lighting to set the mood, all enhanced by the bold cuisine of Chef Deborah Scott of Vintana Restaurant, this shoot by Events by Lift rings in the holidays!

Editor's note: The Centre is truly the focal point of North County Inland and is an obvious choice for very chic weddings and special events- but do check their schedule as they host all kinds of exciting events like shopping, dining, art events and more - this place is so cool that even Santa will be there on December 2nd to celebrate in style!!!
