Planning a wedding when you don’t live in the same city you’re getting married in can be difficult, but it can be even more of a challenge when you live across an ocean. Andy and Elise live in England, but traveled to Elise’s hometown to celebrate their marriage with a San Diego wedding. While they did all of their planning overseas, they were able to rely on the help of Elise’s mother to help coordinate the details that needed some in-person attention.
We love how this couple combined elegant textures (can we talk about those pink cocktail linens!) and vintage touches with masculine nods, such as farm tables to accent the wood details of their venue. Melissa McClure Photography photographed the incredible joy of the day, and we love how she was able to capture the sweetest, most intimate moments between this couple.
We love how their colors were also accented in their bridal portraits by capturing photos at their getting ready location, La Valencia, with the soft pink walls and intimate nooks to hide out in. We’re suckers for good bridal portraits, and these are oh so lovely!
