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

Colorful Garden Wedding at The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe

It was an honor to witness the love and devotion this couple has for each other as well as their faith. It was a perfect day at The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe for a garden wedding. The groom’s father was a pastor and officiated the ceremony. The couple included a prayer together before the ceremony and an act of service of washing each others feet during the ceremony. The ceremony took place under the historic pepper tree followed by dinner on the lawn and dancing in the ballroom.
