Emotional and Intimate Wedding Under the Oaks
Set against the beautiful landscape this Circle Oak Ranch Wedding in San Diego, was smitten by the natural and rustic elements. Chelsea and Casey are two of the sweetest souls we have yet to photograph, they truly are in love. They don’t need posing or directing, for them just being together results in beauty.
Without a cloud in the sky they tearfully and joyfully stated their vows to one another. All while guests sat under the shade of a giant oak tree. Their ceremony was without a doubt the most tender and intimate. One of our favorite moments was when their bridal party and family gathered around them to pray over them and their marriage. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the audience.
Their colors were a mixture of sky blue, greys, creams and greens. Which were woven through all their details and complimented their location’s natural tones. Chelsea absolutely glowed in her simple yet gorgeous lace gown by BHLDN. It went so perfectly with her hair in golden waves tumbling down her back. We loved that she surprised us all and changed up her hair after the ceremony into a stunning messy pony. That simple change created a look so natural and radiant, it suited her personality. We were even more in love when we found out that it’s Casey’s favorite hairstyle on his bride!
They opted for dinner in a courtyard under a canopy of trees. Surrounded by their loved ones, they were treated to a feast of true Italian cuisine. One of our personal local favorites – Buona Forchetta. Afterwards they had s’mores around a fire pit for dessert which was a sweet surprise for the kids. At dusk we stole them away up to the mountain top for some magical photos. There we were drenched in dreamy California sunlight. We couldn’t have envisioned a more perfect wedding!
