A Bright and Happy San Diego Destination Wedding Shows Us Why Couples Come Here to Wed!

Avery & Cory are both so fun spirited and silly and we absolutely love their destination wedding in San Diego. Both Los Angeles transplants, Avery & Cory were all about having a celebration of their love on the beach in San Diego. Kona Kai's harbor beach was the perfect place for this adorable couple to celebrate. Equipped with lots of amazing on trend details, and a bright and happy, pale aqua blue and yellow palette, Avery & Cory's wedding day was perfect in every way, from the brides glitzy bouquet to strutting her stuff in her bridal Jimmy Choo's. They described their wedding style and traditional but glamorous. The most important thing was that they got to remember every detail and enjoy their day. Surrounded by their closest friends & family, this fun loving couple celebrated love, sunshine, and good times at their San Diego destination wedding!

Be our Guest and Enjoy this Beauty and the Beast Wedding Styled Shoot!

We ask you to "Be Our Guest" and enjoy this adorable Beauty and the Beast styled Wedding Shoot! 

Bonjour!! Today's featured wedding styled shoot is a fabulous and fun take on a tale as old as time, so the song says... yes indeed Belle, it's a Disney inspired Beauty and the Beast styled wedding shoot! This team of Southern California wedding experts updated Belle's look by dip dying a dress in golden yellow and orange dye for a super current ombre look. The wedding styled shoot showcases brass and antique details like the couch, clock and candlesticks [Lumiere!] that look like they wandered straight out of Beast's castle. **Editors note: As far as we know no pieces came to life during this shoot!**

With extra special new additions of charm jewelry, sparkly shoes, rich blue florals, star led lights, and painted wooden signs, you can tell this group had so much fun creating this styled shoot! For our part we loved this ode to one of our favorite fairy tales. Now back in the cupboard with you Chip!
