San Diego Restaurant Wedding: Cheri + James

San Diego wedding

Lately we’ve seen so many gorgeous weddings in amazing indoor AND outdoor locations. We’re finding it hard to decide which we prefer! Cheri + James got the best of both worlds with a stunning seaside ceremony (at a lighthouse at sunset, you guys!) followed by an urban restaurant reception at Banker’s Hill Bar & Restaurant in San Diego, California. They enlisted the talent of Beau & Arrow Events to design their dream setting – a totally genius move as you’re about to see. Cheri shares, We made most of the decisions about our wedding day together and tried to keep things true to our taste as a couple. That’s the way to do it, friends!

Big thanks to John Newsome for sharing these beautiful photos with us today and congrats to C + J on a hosting wedding that was just right for them!

Rustic Bohemian California Wedding: Kimberly + Zack

Leo Carrillo Ranch wedding

Did you catch our romantic Valentine’s date night feature from this morning? We’re still in a rather dreamy mood so we’re keeping the sweetness going strong with a gorgeous rustic bohemian wedding that we know you’re gonna love! Kimberly + Zack took a laid-back approach to planning a day filled with color, fun, and beautiful details. Since Kimberly owns her own event design firm, it was a given that they’d DIY as much as they could + infuse the already beautiful setting with plenty of personalty.

Kimberly shares, When it came time to plan my own wedding I decided to take an ‘anything goes’ approach. Although there was no set color scheme I had a vision in mind of a bohemian wonderland where guests were completely surrounded by flowers and pops of color. I relied heavily on trusting my instincts when it came to the design. If a particular vase, flower or texture caught my eye it found a place in the wedding. I also have an obsession with fringe, macramé and brass, therefore these were present throughout the event as well.

Thanks so much to Love Janet Photography for the pretty photos + cheers to the newlyweds!

Goodness, I have so much more advice to give after planning my own wedding! First, don’t procrastinate and second trust your vendors. I think the best decision we had made early on is to let people have creative freedom with their trade. From our caterer to our florist, photographer, videographer, make-up artist, etc. they all worked their personal form of magic and the result was nothing short of spectacular.
