If you’re having an intimate wedding like this next couple did, consider renting an Airbnb for a weekend celebration you won’t soon forget! Vitaliy and Anna had a gorgeous wedding at Dragon Point Villa in the hills of San Diego, and they pulled the whole thing off for only $10,000.
With a guest list of under 40, this beautiful villa wedding featured sweeping views and lots of stylish DIY decor (including all the flowers!). See it all + their budget breakdown below, and catch a closer look at the entire wedding in the full gallery from Sierra Ashleigh Photography.
Renting a villa in San Diego
From Sierra Ashleigh Photography: This beautiful wedding took place in the hills of San Diego! The bride & groom chose the breathtaking Dragon Point Villa via airbnb which was perfect to host all their friends and family in for the weekend. Since the guest list was under 40, this was ideal for their intimate day. The bride loves the colors green (succulents were perfect for this) and blue - so her mother (who did ALL the decor herself) added in these colors in details throughout the day. My favorite included the brides stunning "something" blue Badgley Mischka heels.
Both the bride and groom (including their families) are from Russia so the day was filled with traditional Russian festivities. Including the ceremony (both in Russian and English), fun games, eye-catching food, and lots more. It was truly so much fun for all their guests and an honor to witness and document!
Anna's "dress" was actually a jumpsuit with an attached skirt portion that made for such a fun alternative to the standard wedding dress. Not only was the ensemble beautiful and unique but she was comfortable all day and night! This allowed for her to dance freely (there was lots of dancing!) and to have fun without worry! Vitaliy's baby blue tux with black details was the perfect combination to Anna. Such a fashionable and fun couple! They are the perfect example of how to let your personality shine through your fashion choices on your big day!
Total budget $10k
Brides mother made all the floral arrangements, bouquets, boutonnieres, and arch - including all the decor - DIY at its best!
