Romantic Splendor in San Diego

Romantic Splendor in San Diego

Real Wedding

Jason and Amber met during happy hour at the Rock Bottom Brewery in San Diego. Both California born and bred (she’s from Menlo Park, he hails from Newport Beach), the two quickly appreciated each other’s quirkiness which, among other things, led to a proposal in San Francisco. Jason surprised Amber at the Palace of Fine Arts with a guitar serenade while their friends waited nearby to celebrate.

The August wedding and reception were held at Rancho Valencia in San Diego. The moon theme came from a story Amber’s mom used to tell her when she was a child about a little boy who ruined his dinner by eating part of the moon. The bride wore a dress designed by Mira Zwillinger from Marina Morrison wedding boutique in San Francisco. A Susie Cakes dessert and gelato bar was a special touch for the 120 guests, and the couple cut into a decadent carrot cake from the same bakery.
