Today I'm excited to be sharing alllll the details from Kristine and Taylor's wedding at the Darlington House in San Diego, CA. This understated, yet classy, wedding was such a dream to plan & design, and working with Kristine and Taylor was seriously a blast.
After Kristine and Taylor got engaged and started planning their wedding from a far, they quickly realized that they were in over their head and needed to bring a planner on board. And that's when we jumped into the mix. We started working with Kristine and Taylor nearly a year before their wedding, but due to the distance, didn't actually meet them in person until around 2 months before the wedding. I remember going to our final walk through at Darlington House, and being so excited to finally put a face to the name.
When it came down to the planning, Kristine and Taylor wanted the most help with the aesthetics. This was an important piece for Kristine and she had no idea how to bring her vision to life. From day 1, she had a very good idea of what she wanted and she never once wavered from it. Kristine wanted her dream wedding to be understated, yet classic, with a slightly rustic feel. And when it came to colors, she wanted a neutral and subdued color palette of nudes, whites and earthy tones. I have to admit that I was 100% on board with this look - and it was so fun bringing this to life for her. On the wedding day, I can't tell you how many people told me that the day was 'sooooo Kristine!' That right there is always my goal. I want a wedding to truly feel like the couple who are getting married.
When it came to the wedding day, Kristine looked absolutely stunning in her all lace gown and half up hair style. If you ask me, her look perfectly matched the day - Classy and romantic, yet someone casual and boho at the same time. As for the bridesmaids, Kristine wanted them to be comfortable and allowed them to each pick their own dresses. I have to admit, they did a great job and looked gorgeous standing along side Kristine!
