Wedding Wednesday: A Traveling Couple Chooses The Darlington House!

We love La Jolla weddings, even more so when they’re held at the Darlington House.  The venue is just SO darling! You can’t beat a garden themed wedding in an actual Rose Garden and such a stunning one at that! Christine and Ryan were so sweet to work with. They are a kind and loving couple that have actually known each other since Kindergarten!

Christine and Ryan’s love of travel and adventure for life played an understated theme throughout their wedding. They displayed subtle travel accents that took on their sense of adventure such as a seating chart map, destination-inspired tables, to their ceremony programs outlining their travels together around the world. Their romantic fete was also filled with unique and special elements collected by Christine’s mother. All the beautiful decor pieces including all the vases and lanterns were hand picked by her mom Dianne. Everything looked beautiful and fit perfectly with the eclectic character of the Darlington House! Behind the scene we flipped the Rose Garden from the ceremony to the reception in under an hour. Thanks to the help of the truly talented Organic Elements team, it was a total success! Christine and Ryan truly had the best day of their lives as they celebrated with their closest friends and family all night!

Check out their feature on Style Me Pretty!

Wedding Wednesday: Carrie and Bryan's Beautiful Day

We are totally smitten with Carrie and Bryan and their wedding that took place at the Temecula Creek Inn. The historic venue is nestled in the back woods of Temecula and features a gorgeous stone cottage built in the 1800‘s. The quaint and adorable little cottage is surrounded by old oak trees and is full of warm touches such as a fireplace and exposed brick walls. The gorgeous space offered a rustic vibe and we loved the combination of adding in lots of whites and classic touches including boxwood wreathes, magnolia leaves, ivy and white blooms everywhere. Their wedding was very intimate, elegant yet comfortable, and sophisticated but so fun.

When we first met Carrie and Bryan we instantly fell in love with the presence of their sweet and joyful love for one another, Jesus, and their family. Their wedding day definitely showed their love and reinforced all those specials beliefs and more. One of our most favorite moments between the two of them happened right before walking down the aisle. Carrie and Bryan without seeing one another, met at the cottage door to say a little prayer together before the ceremony. It was very special and truly beautiful moment between the gorgeous bride and her soon to be husband. They were so excited and overwhelmed with joy to be marrying the love of their lives in just a few short minutes. We loved this moment and will always cherish it as we know they did and will continue to as well. From their beautiful love, to the breathtaking setting, emotional and fun dinner toasts to the dance party that ensued, they could not have asked for a more perfect day filled with all their dearest family and friends.

Wedding Wednesday: Haley and Jeff’s Romantic Garden Inspired Wedding

Not gonna lie... we love a good garden wedding as well as a completely in love couple. Haley and Jeff’s wedding was all about that. They said their I do’s at the beautiful Santaluz Club surrounded by the stunning greens alongside their closest friends and family members. We designed a touch-of-elegance with a laid back vibe. We incorporated green vines and garlands displayed with clean and simplistic lines. Every inch had dreamy details and loads of natural elements that were so charming and truly heartwarming. The oversized chandelier lush in greens provided the perfect focal point created by Organic Elements with structured greens, beautifully placed blooms, and hanging candlelight centered in the all white tent. 

We just adore Haley and Jeff. The two of them definitely know how to celebrate in style from their gingham pocket squares, personalized tie pins, to their glowing grins from ear to ear. They were simply SO happy to be married and everyone around them celebrated in their love. This beautiful couple and romantic wedding with a garden twist is so easy to fall in love with. All the fun and love show in this gallery by SheWanders.
