Downtown San Diego Styled Shoot | The El Cortez Don Room

Hello, gorgeous!!!

This incredible styled shoot at the El Cortez Don Room features vibrant jewel tones and rich golden hues for a truly jaw-dropping, luxury wedding. The outdoor fireplace on the terrace was the perfect setting for a stunning lounge designed by Breezy Day Weddings with rentals from TBD San Diego. Breezy Day Florals created some of the most spectacular arrangements I have ever seen! I'm still reeling over the incredible bridal bouquet!

With dark wood floors and a real 24k gold ceiling, the Don Room is one of the most romantic venues in San Diego. We ran with the romance and the gold theme to create a sweetheart table for the ages! From the floral arrangements to the gold flatware, this table is full of delicious colors and is sure to give you all the warm fuzzies.

In short, this shoot is one for the books! Every single detail created by the incredible team of vendors is perfection! Be sure to check out the entire list of vendors below! Enjoy!

Michelle & Robert | Pine Hills Lodge

Michelle and Robert met the old-fashioned way; her mom set them up! And it turns out that mother really does know best, because these two very quickly realized that they were head-over-heels in love. Nice job, mom!

Robert and Michelle's wedding was the perfect blend of tradition and uniqueness! I loved the juxtaposition of Michelle's pearls (passed down from her grandmother) and her incredibly beautiful sleeve tattoo that she designed herself! And don't let the tattoos fool you. It was an all pink wedding for this self-proclaimed girly girl, including her absolutely stunning engagement ring!

There were tears all around when Robert first saw Michelle before the ceremony. A first look for the books! You can see his deep love for Michelle every time he looks at her! What an amazing moment!

Their wedding party was full of friends, family, and of course, Michelle's sweet dog in a tuxedo! Can every wedding please include dogs? That would be great! The Pine Hills Lodge in Julian, CA was a perfect fall setting for this beautiful wedding! It was a fantastic day from start to finish!

Michelle and Robert, I wish you all the best in this incredible new adventure! It was such a joy spending your wedding day with you! Best wishes, my friends!
