California Beach and Water Inspired Wedding

California Beach and Water Inspired Wedding

With roots in San Diego, Matthew and Danielle decided to show off the city to their out of town guests as well as represent all its beauty in their big day. Their gorgeous venue, Coasterra had a killer view of the water and they said "I do," with the city as their dramatic backdrop. Even the bridal party dressed in soft blues and greys as a nod to the beach and ocean.

From the Bride

We wanted to get married in San Diego since we met there, Matthew is from San Diego, and we both love warm weather. We also had a lot of out of town guests coming in and wanted to give them the treat of seeing beautiful San Diego. We decided to go with Coasterra since it was on the water, had the best view of downtown San Diego (where we had our first date!), and was the most breathtaking, unique venue we found in San Diego that was unlike any other venue we saw. 

Our wedding theme was sleek, modern, classy, romantic, and elegant. We had a lot of gold touches with dusty/fog blue accents. The groomsmen were in cobalt since it was sleek, modern, and would stand out from other weddings we have seen. The bridesmaids were in different colors to give some variety and keep a neutral color palette. The color palette for the wedding was easy and classic to go with the overall look of the venue. It was romantic and soft for a wedding on the water.
