As planners, we love all types of venues, but when we book a client that wants to do a beautiful tented wedding (especially in the backyard of their exquisite home), there is an element of excitement because you are starting from scratch & the sky is the limit! Katie & Matt live in San Diego, CA, so from the very beginning, our planner Ashley met with Katie’s mom & worked hand in hand with her at their home & Katie via video chat to finalize all details & plan their dream day!
After many months of planning, their August Wedding Day was just that! From the beautiful sunny sky and the warm weather, to the timeline flowing seamlessly, it could not have gone better! Their guests witnessed their marriage at a beautiful church that the Bride & her family have gone to for so long, followed by enjoying cocktails around the pool, and then ate, listened to meaningful speeches, + danced the night away under the romantic tent! The smiles you see on their faces in the photos below never fell, and these two truly enjoyed every second of the day with each other & those they love most! What more could you ask for?!
