Angelica + Brian
Angelica and Brian changed their wedding plans more times than we can count, thanks to covid, but the end result was way better than we could have ever imagined! Their ceremony ended up taking place at Angelica’s moms private residence in Point Loma and allowed for a beautiful intimate ceremony filled with their favorite people and the modern Spanish style of the home paired beautifully with their Spanish/Coastal and Modern wedding design. The reception was held at one of their favorite date-night spots, Ketch Restaurant Bar + Taps, and was the perfect backdrop for great conversation and connection! It's safe to say Angelica’s Spanish/Coastal design came together better than any of us imagined and truly reflected who this sweet couple is in their every day lives.
Color Palette: White, Blue, and Green
Textures: Linen, Rattan, and Wood
Danielle + Chris
This deeply in love couple changed their Wedding plans time after time in order to have their Wedding amongst the COVID-19 pandemic. Originally scheduled for a 200 person affair in Palm Springs we chose to pivot to the picturesque L’Auberge Del Mar and bring a bit of the Desert oasis to the Ocean! While their wedding may have looked and felt different than we had originally planned, the one thing that was always consistent was Danielle and Chris’ love and commitment to each other!
Color Palette: Cream, Rust, Rose and Cappuccino
Textures: Rattan, Acrylic, Silk and Dried Palms
Tiffany + Brendan
Tiffany and Brendan wanted a coastal chic affair that focused on creating a space for their friends and family to laugh and dance the night away! They chose the beautiful San Diego Botanical Gardens as their backdrop and worked every free minute they had to privately source the details that mattered most to them! Tiffany had such a strong vision for her day and knew exactly what she needed to make her vision a reality. From the beaded chandelier to the mismatched napkins every detail was thoughtfully curated with their guests experience in mind.
Color Palette: Blue, Green, White and Blush
Textures: Linen, Rattan, Wood and Stone
Secret Ingredient Editorial
Today’s couples are all about personalization and experiences. Crystal and Joey love cooking together and sharing time in the kitchen, so we brought the kitchen herb garden to their wedding design to help in the telling of their love story.

Garden Heirloom Elopement
Tucked away in Southern California’s Finest City, San Diego is memorable for so many treasures; however, our inspiration today has led us to something of a hidden gem where you can smell the sweet fragrance of shrubbery as songbirds accompanied with butterfly’s glide across an admired Botanical Garden Lily Pond in the reflection of Balboa Park. Taken straight from the inspiration of the Author’s pen:
“At first people refuse to believe that a strange new thing can be done, then they begin to hope it can be done, then they see it can be done--then it is done and all the world wonders why it was not done centuries ago…”
An excerpt of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s “The Secret Garden” was the key inspiration for our elopement in wake of how COVID has changed the look of ceremonies.
