Romantic Courtyard Wedding at the Villa San Juan Capistrano

Frenzel Photographers

Kristie & Tim's wedding was at the Villa San Juan Capistrano, a former 1920s Spanish Colonial private estate. This romantic courtyard wedding was light and airy with touches of lace and distressed mercury glass vases throughout the rustic venue. You are going to especially love the all the florals designed by Fantasy Floral Designs. We were all ooh and awweing over the long birch tree vases. Such a stunning centerpiece.
Don't miss any of the charming details by viewing the full gallery here, all exquisitely photographed by Frenzel Photographers.

From the Bride:The best tip I can give to brides is to have their dress made. I helped design my dress with a friend of mine who is a seamstress (which made it really special), and I saved so much money on the dress alone!

How fantastic are the bridesmaid dresses? They coordinate perfectly with the rose and gardenia bouquets. We can only imagine how beautiful the roses smelt. We especially love that each of  Kristie's bridesmaid has a monogram gold necklace. No doubt a gift from Kristie for standing by her side on her special day.

My husband and I wished that we sat at our sweetheart table longer and had a sufficient meal! According to all our guests, the food was amazing, and I can honestly say I have no idea what it tasted like! We wished we would have let our guests come to us, as opposed to us coming to them.
