I am so excited to share with you some pictures from when we eloped! Over the years of styling for weddings I have got to see some pretty amazing wedding days and how I would want my own. I always knew it would be small and intimate. One thing that always stuck out to me was no matter what pick a great photographer, it makes all the difference. The lovely ladies of Joie Lala photographie were dream photographers…so extremely talented.
We wanted a simple day but one to remember. With our families all being out of town having something simple with everyone there would have been a challenge. So an elopement was right for us. We decided it had to be everyone or no one. Our parents and close family all knew and were more than excited for the way we wanted to get married. It turned out perfectly.
We got ready at the Hotel Salomar downtown (the grandious mirror in the room was so worth it). Then we headed to the Spreckles Organ Pavillion in Balboa park. I love that place. We read our vows and danced a first dance and were officially married! After that we went down to the harbor and met our captain and boat and sailed the bay. San Diego lights look pretty nice from the water. I could not have asked for better weather as it was a perfect August night that you can be on the water without being even the slight bit cold.
The fabulous Vicky Larsen from Clean Slate did my make-up. My flowers, veil, and hair I took care of myself. Curious how does a hairstylist wears their hair on their wedding day? I’m somewhat embarrassed to say…a hair donut! Believe it or not it was a last minute change to what I had originally planned, but I woke up that morning and was feeling a high bun and no fuss hair so it won over.
Enjoy a glimpse from our day!
