San Juan Capistrano Villa Wedding

We are super in love with Seattle wedding photographer Julie Harmsen. She knocked this San Juan Capistrano wedding out of the park. Not only are the photographs beautiful but the wedding is to die for!

Bride Nicole went for a simple rustic wedding with hints of vintage flair. They chose The Villa, which is a perfect venue for a romantic vintage wedding. This San Juan Capistrano wedding venue promotes an intimate, social, party-type setting, where everyone can mingle without ever feeling too far removed.

    Absolutely gorgeous! May I ask where the wedding dress sash is from? Did it come with the dress or did the bride get it separately? It is exactly what I am looking for to go with my dress!

    If the bride is willing to resell the keys, have her contact me! I’m actually wanting to do something similar for my own wedding.

  17. -100. julie harmsen says:

    @alicia, the bride bought the sash separately from the white dress in Corona Del Mar.

  18. -100. julie harmsen says:

    @amber olson The keys were the guests wedding favors so they each took them home. I think you can find them at Pottery Barn.|key|4|best|0|1|24||1&cm_src=PRODUCTSEARCH||NoFacet-_-NoFacet-_-NoMerchRules-_-
