Megan and Nick had a simply beautiful small wedding at La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla, CA, and it was the perfect place for them. Megan got in touch with me looking for a local wedding planner, as she was living in Texas and wanted to plan an intimate wedding in San Diego. She and Nick had lots of memories in San Diego, and as soon as they got engaged they knew it was where they wanted to get married.
From day one, working with Megan was an absolute dream! She knew what she wanted and had full trust in me to execute her vision. She wanted a very organic, natural and elegant wedding and wanted the color scheme to consist of shades of blues, whites and natural greenery. After she decided on La Valencia, Megan decided she wanted to add a hint of blush into her color palette, as it was a dominant color in the venue. I think this was such a great choice, as it really tied the aesthetic together.
On the wedding day, Megan was one of the most relaxed brides I have ever seen, and the bridal suite was so incredibly peaceful. Once she got dressed, Megan looked absolutely gorgeous, and her gown perfectly matched the relaxed, yet very elegant vibe of her wedding.
Outdoor Wedding Ceremony at La Valencia Hotel
When it came time to say 'I Do,' all 20 of Megan and Nick's closest friends gathered at their ceremony overlooking the ocean. Having so few guests, kept the ceremony extremely intimate and made it feel extremely special to everyone around.
Once the ceremony was over, guests made their way to cocktail hour and Megan and Nick made their way to the beach for some more photos. This changed up the scenery and gave their wedding even more of the natural aesthetic Megan had wanted from the beginning.
Intimate La Valencia Wedding Reception
Once Megan and Nick made it back from the beach, it was time for dinner. Because it was such a small guest count, Megan and Nick opted for one long table for all of their guests. This added to the intimate vibe and allowed everyone to enjoy the rest of the evening together.
