August 2011


You may remember this hip couple from their engagement shoot up in LA a few months ago.  They headed down south this time to tie the knot at the classic La Valencia Hotel, known for its unique architecture and intimate courtyards. Kelly Instone Weddings oversaw all the details on their wedding day as their day of coordinator, allowing the bride and groom to relax and have fun.

Mary’s Creative Florals put together a beautiful array of pink blossoms for the affair, appealing to the bride’s classic and feminine side.

Ornamental iron works were incorporated into the decor in memory of Kimberly’s grandfather, who crafted pieces reminiscent of this one.

Favors were hand made by Sylhouettes by Silvia.

The cake was designed by Michele Coulon Dessertier, complementing the classic pink theme.

Everyone cut a rug to the sounds of Aire Play.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Wason!

Ventana Photography had the privilege of being part of Rachel and Tommy’s beachfront wedding held at the scenic Catamaran Hotel and Resort. They literally kicked off their shoes for this occasion, happily  digging their toes into the sand. What a great alternative to sore feet at the end of the night!

The entire event was marvelously spearheaded by Gina Hundley, owner and lead consultant of San Diego Weddings by Gina. She created a veritable tropical paradise for these two lovebirds, working with the couple to create their dream wedding.

The Flower Girls designed the florals, using lush, rich tropical flowers. I love the bride’s bouquet. It’s so striking with its variety of solid red blossoms against the white and sky blue colors of the bridal party.

Flour Power can be counted on for any theme!

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Quapp!

I met  Adria and Erik back in March when they came in for their engagement viewing. We had a wonderful time looking through the photos taken in and around their home and stables where they board their horse, Versace S. Take a peek at the blog post dated 3.29.11.

Their wedding, held at the exquisite  Estancia La Jolla and unparalleled in terms of elegance and beauty, was the perfect backdrop for their affair. Still, the surroundings hold a comfortable atmosphere that fits the style of the couple. With coordinator Mary Noble of Classic Weddings at the helm, every detail of their wedding was perfectly planned and executed. From the stunning floral arrangements provided by Botanica to the detailed and delicious looking  cakes made by Michele Coulon, this was a day to be remembered by all.

What girl wouldn’t want a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes for her wedding day?

The unmistakable styling of Vera Wang purchased from bliss bride.

Erik can’t resist showing a little bit of his quirky style through his footwear!

These guys will definitely get to the church on time!

but just to be sure…

I love the green and orange color scheme, perfect for an outdoor summer wedding.

A perfect candid moment…

A proud father…

Succulents for everyone!


Not to be outdone by the men, the ladies kick their Choos off…

The guests have fun dancing to the beat of the James Gang Band.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Pederson!
