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. Each 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.

This military-inspired wedding photo shoot gets its style from the United States Marines dress blue uniform. It’s clean lines and patriotic colors let you know this couple is proud of their service while still expressing the bride’s personality with the fun feathers, gorgeous florals and dainty accents. The gold sequins and caramel macarons mimic the gold uniform buttons. And speaking of buttons, hundreds were donated by military families to use as decor for this very special table.
We shot this tablescape at the Unconditional Surrender statue at Tuna Harbor Park in San Diego. The cake, created by Cute Cakes, we just perfect for a military wedding! The buttons on the cake were all made of chocolate.
The sword used to cut the cake as well as the bride and groom cake topper were used in my parents military wedding nearly 50 years ago.
The bridal bouquet and all of the flowers were created by Flower by Coley. I loved how they incorporated the gold military buttons onto the bouquet.
The table was decorated with a crisp white linen topped with a navy and white striped runner. The chairs were covered with linens created by Thimbleana as a playful salute to the military uniforms.
Each place setting wore a gold sequined placemat, a gold charger plate, a dinner plate from a private US Navy collection and a navy blue napkin tied with a gold tassel and red rose.
Melissa McClure did an amazing job capturing these gorgeous photos! You can see more photos of this San Diego Military Wedding Photo Shoot in the new 2014/2015 edition of San Diego Style Weddings Magazine.

I have always loved the San Diego skyline. And therefore I have always loved Bayside Park in Coronado. The views of our city from this cozy, quiet park are spectacular. I could sit under a tree here watching sailboats float by for hours. So I knew it would be the perfect location for a San Diego themed wedding photo shoot for San Diego Style Weddings Magazine. I wanted to incorporate everything I love about San Diego. But I’m not a casual kind of girl, so I took all of those San Diego elements and created a San Diego Style Black Tie Wedding.
The gold, black and glass brought a formality to the scene while the beachy details, like the surfboard menu brought the San Diego fun.
The colorful centerpieces and flowers, provided by Flowers by Coley, incorporated sand and drift wood to carry the San Diego theme To salute San Diego’s thriving microbrewery scene, we served Fyodor’s Classic 2013 Imperial Russian Stout from Stone Brewing Company, instead of wine.Nothing says elegance more than a grand piano, so Brian Stodart from Mike and Brian Productions brought his piano to the Bay. We used it as a unique dessert table.
