I adore intimate weddings and ceremonies because couples can really engage with their guests one-on-one and it makes the day feel more free-flowing and less tied to a rigid schedule.
Rio opted to get ready in the Grand Pacific Palisades in Carlsbad, California and put on her incredible Belize Dress by BHLDN. This location is super close to the famous Carlsbad Flower Fields and Legoland making it a great place to have a big family reunion where guests can enjoy various attractions and of course, the beach.
I’m a big fan of Encinitas and I was so excited when Rio & Austin decided to celebrate their union at the San Diego Botanic Gardens. The ceremony was made up of their closest family and friends and it was a pleasure to get to know everyone individually and make sure we captured lots of photos around the garden. We were able to do a ton of family photos and everyone enjoyed an intimate dinner afterwards.
