Watercolor Wedding Photo Shoot

It all started with the shoes. I spied these glorious Kate Spade watercolor pumps and knew I had to use them in my next wedding inspiration photo shoot. A watercolor wedding has limitless possibilities for color and texture and movement. I decided to focus on watercolor as art and incorporated frames into the design. Flowers by Coley installed the centerpiece bridge that allowed us to hang several vintage frames that created a living art gallery at the table. cliftonphotography-12cliftonphotography-47cliftonphotography-43cliftonphotography-22cliftonphotography-74Each place setting featured a white or gold frame with vintage white and blush plates. The perfect watercolor  table linen was provided by La Tavola. Colorful menus also carried the watercolor theme.

The place card table held gorgeous framed flowers – truly a work of art! The place cards were painted with water colors and hung from paint brushes that topped champagne glasses. To keep with the watercolor theme, each champagne glass was topped with a colorful swirl of cotton candy.cliftonphotography-90cliftonphotography-95

Nautical Catholic Military Wedding

I was in heaven when Benson and Jayne came to me for help planning their wedding. Both the bride and groom were in the military (Navy and Air Force) – my favorite groom’s attire is a uniform. They wanted a Catholic wedding at the Immaculata at University of San Diego – I am a USD alumna. And their reception was to be at the Bali Hai – which hosts my favorite San Diego skyline view!

The colors for the nautical themed wedding were blue and white. The bridal bouquet by FloralWorks and Events was simple and elegant with just the right amount of blue.JAYNE-BENSON-020The amazing Brett Butterstein Photography captured the day. This is one of my favorites of the bride leaving the hotel ready meet her groom!   JAYNE-BENSON-103

The Catholic ceremony was held at the Immaculata Parish at the University of San Diego. If you follow my blog, you know it is one of my favorite places on the planet, so I’ve included lots of photos for you.  JAYNE-BENSON-239 JAYNE-BENSON-240 JAYNE-BENSON-285 JAYNE-BENSON-365 JAYNE-BENSON-380After the ceremony, the couple headed to Harbor Island to board a sailboat to grab some alone time as husband and wife, and to make their grand entrance into the waterfront reception.  JAYNE-BENSON-472

Bali Hai Tropical Wedding – Part 2

You met Jacqueline and Ann in our previous post. This amazing couple called us for help planning their tropical San Diego wedding from Los Angeles.  They wanted to incorporate everything they love into their special day – so we found a way to include their fur babies as well as Muppets. The result was a playful wedding filled with personality and lots of joy!

The flowers by Flowers of Point Loma established the purple and white tropical color theme.

The favor tag featured the Muppet drummer, Animal, and announced to the guests that this would be a party like no other. "Jax and Ann" Hawaiian music by Desi Relator set the mood for the ceremony."Jax and Ann""Jax and Ann" "Jax and Ann" "Jax and Ann""Jax and Ann"

Tropical Wedding at Bali Hai

I am so blessed to have met Jacqueline and Ann. The couple was planning a San Diego wedding from Los Angeles and needed a local planner to help with the details. They had done a great job of selecting vendors to create a tropical paradise for their wedding. What I love most about this couple – besides their big personalities and love of laughter – is that they were concerned not so much with the look of the wedding, but about ensuring the wedding reflected their lives and their love for each other. By incorporating their three fur babies and their love of everything Muppets, this wedding could belong to no other couple than Jax and Ann. The perfect day was captured by Boffo Video.
