Have you ever been to a wedding where the love was so strong you swear the bride and groom were just floating in air the entire day? That’s how this Inn at Rancho Santa Fe wedding was. I swear, Emily’s smile could’ve carried her for miles. She was so excited to marry Chris, and his love for her was equally apparent. Photographing a couple so in love definitely makes my job easier. And, it’s just downright fun to be around people like this.
It’s easy to see in the photographs why the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe is one of San Diego’s most sought after wedding venues. The grounds are ahh-mazing and provided the perfect backdrop to every image. Between the venue, the couple, the weather and the LOVE that was shared – I left this wedding on cloud nine. I hope Emily and Chris did, too!
The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe Wedding Photos
As you can see by the photograph above, this wedding party was f-u-n. And, I just loved the muted color palette they chose. It really helped to highlight all the lushness of the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe – and of course, the beautiful bride. And, this crew really knew how to tear it up on the dance floor (see photo evidence below).
Emily’s mom made popsicles for the coolest signature champagne cocktails! I regret I didn’t get to partake (can I get that recipe for February tho?), but from what I hear, they were delish! This wedding was another partnership with Courtney of The Joy Parade, one of my all time favorite event planners. Courtney’s weddings are always beautiful and fun- but her attention to incorporating the personal touches really makes her weddings to stand out!
The end of a long day shooting a wedding always brings about mixed emotions for me. When I was packing up to leave Emily and Chris’s wedding, they had one final request. They wanted to take a selfie with ME, this is just the kind of people Emily and Chris are – kind, thoughtful, and so incredibly sweet. I truly have the best clients!
I hope you are enjoying your honeymoon in Costa Rica, Emily and Chris! I certainly enjoyed your Inn at Rancho Santa Fe wedding!
