This estate wedding at the Carmel Mountain Ranch Estate in San Diego, California turned out to be the dreamiest wedding day ever! Sydnie and Kevin met each other in the most modern (and effective) of ways… through a dating app! It’s wild, one day you’re swiping right… and the next, you share a dog named Maggie together, and you’re getting married!
These two are seriously one of the most stunning couples ever, and they looked extra stunning on their wedding day. Sydnie wore a beautiful and classic mermaid-style wedding dress. She carried a neutral bouquet of white and soft pink florals. Her bouquet matched the bridesmaid’s bouquets, as well as the ceremony florals and reception table centerpieces (speaking of reception flowers… you have to check out the sweetheart table.) Kevin looked wonderful in a light beige groom suit. My favorite detail of his was his pink bow tie! Their first look wedding photos turned out really sweet and emotional, so you should definitely scroll to see those.
The outdoor wedding ceremony was absolutely stunning. The ceremony arch was surrounded by the lushest greenery. It looked straight out of The Secret Garden. After the ceremony, the couple gathered with their wedding party and their family and friends in one of the estate’s many beautiful little courtyard areas to hug (and cry tears of joy) before bride and groom portraits and the reception.
The indoor wedding reception took place in the venue’s large ballroom. This was perfect for a couple and wedding guests who sure loved to party. The reception was so much fun, the wedding food and dessert were incredible, and the night played out absolutely perfectly.
Thank you, Sydnie and Kevin, for letting me capture and be a part of this special day!
