Cristie and Jimmy's wedding was so beautiful, it's been picked up all around the internet at some of the top wedding blogs in San Diego and beyond! Their epic party was picture-perfect from start to finish with gorgeous details like hand drawn calligraphy, stunning pink and cream florals, a perfectly draped tent for dancing, and a stunning sunset complete with romantic hot air balloons off in the distance. Their big day wasn't just beautiful, however, they also managed to throw a wild dance party to the tunes of Encore Event Entertainment, and their guests were LOVING IT! Amid the fog and lights, even the bride and groom were getting down and letting loose, and things got a little wild! Check it out, with other great moments from their day below:
Cristie's bridal accessories in muted tones of snow white, pale pink, and creamy ivory popped perfectly against the colorful background of the Santaluz Club in Black Mountain Ranch. Her gorgeous gown from Mia Bella Couture, with its bedazzled lace and stylish silhouette, looks right at home amongst the rustic, yet modern surroundings.
The girls got ready in the CUTEST matching PJs you'll ever see, sipping on drinks while the superstar makeup artists from A Toast to Beauty made them look their very best. Soon after, was time to take some seriously cute portraits of Cristie and her girls having a great time all around Santaluz. We had a blast with the bridal party while their second photographer was hanging with the guys:
Clearly, Jimmy and his friends are a bunch of goofballs who know how to have a good time! They were looking sharp in their grey suits and navy accent pieces as they romped around the club taking pictures. After taking some shots, both silly and sweet, of the groomsmen, the big moment of the couple's first look was upon us!
There were smiles and happy tears all around as the happy couple saw each other for the first time in their wedding attire. After a group shot, they started preparing to head to the church and down the aisle to become husband and wife!
After a sweet exchange between Cristie and her dad, the two took their places at the end of the aisle for that special walk, and the anticipation was tangible in the air as Jimmy waited patiently for his beautiful bride to come through the doors.
Their traditional Catholic ceremony was heartfelt and beautiful, and the setting itself, with its open, airy feel and vaulted ceilings, was almost as beautiful as the vows. The newlyweds looked absolutely overjoyed as they turned to face the congregation of friends and family as husband and wife, and they smiled constantly as they made their way back down the aisle. After some family photos at the altar, everyone headed back to Santaluz to get the party started!
We loved these huge wooden doors as a backdrop for some amazing couples portraits!
The cocktail hour was glamorous and perfectly styled, and the photo table was such a cute and personal touch!
The reception tent at Santaluz was draped and decorated with beautiful blooms, chiavari chairs, gorgeous glass peices, and cute personal touches galore! The custom designed paper goods by Just Jurf were an amazing upscale touch and looked fantastic on the tables, adding a pop of pale pink to the classic white linens.
After a sweet first dance, the party started! Encore Event Entertainment was getting the crowd going with fog, lights, and great music, and everyone was in the party spirit.
After a quick break for some breathtakingly gorgeous sunset photos, the newlyweds headed back in for more dancing and fun!
Amdist all the craziness, the lovely couple managed to sneak away for a few moments of quiet to take some romantic night shots around the venue. It was a perfect way to cap off the night!
