Dreamy San Diego Garden Wedding: Cassidie + Dean

white lace bridesmaids

Cass + Dean tied the knot at beautiful Quail Haven Farms in Vista, California and their day was a dreamy, stylish celebration filled with gorgeous florals, stunning details + a laid back, intimate vibe. Stylist, Rachael, from Lace & Likes blended Cass’ feminine personal style with her own approach to wedding design – incorporating a few edgy elements and a palette of pinks, blush and black.

Cass + Dean say, The first thing that we both decided when wedding planning began was we wanted our wedding to have a small and intimate feel. Given, that our guest list wasn’t exactly small, we tried to tie in elements that would give it the vibe we wanted. With family tables and the flow of the venue, I think we got exactly what we wanted.

Thanks so much to Carmen Santorelli for the stunning photos and big congrats to Cassidie + Dean on a beautiful day!

Our Favorite Memory From The Wedding

This is going to sound entirely cliche but my favorite moment was seeing my soon to be husband as I walked down the aisle surrounded by all of the people that we loved the most.

Majorly love the seating chart displays hung in the trees! Black paper with copper calligraphy is such a killer combo.

Our Advice To Those Planning Now

Everyone told us in the beginning that no wedding goes off without a hitch. I don't think I really believed them but when the day came, it was so hard not to focus on all the little things that went awry. My advice to those planning now: Go into the day, not expecting it to be the best day of your life, but the day that you get to marry the person you are going to spend all of your best days with. Relax, have a couple cocktails and have fun!
