Pink And Teal San Diego Wedding

San Diego beach wedding

Planned in only five months this destination pink and teal San Diego wedding not only looks gorgeous but was also a terrific beach party!

With help from San Diego Destination Weddings, Josh and Meg were able to pull off one spectacular day! You can see even more of this fabulous day, captured by V.A. Photography, when you visit the full gallery here.

Put Your Guests Up For the Night

From the Bride: Our dream was to have a celebration of our marriage. We wanted it very informal, laid back, but wanted to keep it classy and elegant. So, we decided to rent a home in La Jolla, CA that would be able to house all our guests comfortably. Well, we found THE PERFECT house! There was the backyard and then a cliff, and then the most incredible view of the ocean! Renting this house was another third of our budget.

Hint: Don’t Procrastinate

I don’t think we would have changed a thing about our wedding. Well, maybe planning it a little sooner. Josh and I were horrible procrastinators in planning our wedding because I was really overwhelmed by trying to have a nice wedding and not be in debt for the rest of our lives. We did this in 5 months, which we don’t recommend if you are doing a destination wedding

The Wedding Bowl

Jacquelyn Mendoza of San Diego Destination Weddings helped us find a site to have our ceremony, which was at this BEAUTIFUL section of the coastline called Cuvier Park (aka the wedding bowl). It was a small grassy area but the views over looking the pacific were AMAZING!

Seafood Boil Dinner

We wanted to have a crab/seafood boil. I realize this doesn’t sound very wedding like, and especially not a classy one at that. We knew our guests and they all were very excited about it. We got crab bibs, crab crackers, buckets to throw the crab shells and shrimp shells in, but mostly we had the most incredible view to look at while eating some delicious seafood by my Chef brother Ben Alexander!

Morning Brunch Wedding

not your usual wedding shoes

Rachael and Kevin’s wedding was completely unique, overflowing with personal touches, and happened to be a morning brunch wedding. They served up crepes amidst a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. You will definilty want to take note on how successful this morning brunch turned out, and keep in mind that having a brunch wedding is less expensive than having a dinner wedding.

Every detail was thought out, made, and personalized by the bride and the wedding party, from yellow tennis shoes to the cat suspenders. Many more intriguing and delightful details await you in the full gallery here, captured by Leslie Anne Photofinish.

Redesign your grandma’s gown

We both had an idea of what we wanted – somewhere outdoors, but secluded, a place where our friends could stay on the property with us, lots of trees, in Southern California – but could only find venues that met some of our requirements. When we drove up the hill to Hidden Valley the first time, we both looked at each other and knew we had found our location. (There was even a double rainbow that day, which sadly we couldn’t book for the wedding.) Then we took the tour and discovered they had a peacock that decided it lived there, which sealed the deal for me, because it’s one of my favorite animals. I designed my own dress, though it was made from my grandmother’s wedding gown, which she wore in 1955. She passed away 10 years ago, but we were very close, so it meant a lot to me to be able to incorporate her into our day this way and also put my own spin on it as she would have encouraged.

Wizard of oz inspired details

The centerpieces were created by me as well, with some help from family and friends. The flowers were made of pages from the Wizard of Oz novels because my husband and I met at a Wizard of Oz costume party. The hot air balloon design and the flying monkey in the bird cage were nods to that as well. We were introduced at that party by a guy I was supposed to go on a date with the next day, but he saw how well we hit it off and canceled. We’re all still friends, so we had him officiate the wedding for us. Another friend who was instrumental in us meeting read a passage from Wizard of Oz during the ceremony.
