A Backyard Handmade Wedding in San Diego: Nicki + JP

Happy Monday everyone. I thought this fun + stylish wedding was a perfect way to kick off the week! JP is a mod/mid century inspired furniture designer and Nicki is a middle school teacher. They are also high school sweethearts and have been dating for over 10 years. Congrats to them on that! Since they’ve spent their life together thus far, they really wanted their wedding to represent their smooth transition into marriage. I love that their wedding is easy, fun, stylish + relaxed – just like them! :) Oh, and Nicki + JP designed everything for their day themselves! JP even built their ceremony site, right down to their sweet “love” logo. Congrats to Nicki + JP and thanks so much to the lovely Jill Thomas for letting me share her gorgeous film images!
