Rarely do I have the pleasure of shooting an incredibly non-traditional wedding, but thanks to Alyssa and Cannon, I did just that earlier this October. Since the couple had their official wedding in Italy, their entire group of friends and family couldn’t all go overseas. Their solution was to host them at their Green Acre Campus Pointe wedding reception here in San Diego. When the wedding day consists of only pretty details, portraits, and a fun party, count me in!

Details and Getting Ready

I cannot begin to describe how in love I am with the invitation suite for the Italy wedding and the San Diego reception. Gorgeous bold blacks with white make such a clean, elegant, and upscale combination. Modern and also timeless at the same time come to mind when looking at this stunning suite. I could easily have spent another hour styling the pieces along with flowers and Alyssa’s personal details.

Couple and Bridal Party Portraits

For portraits, Alyssa carried a lush bouquet with subtle pops of red paired with green and ivory tones. Cameras pick up such beautiful texture in large bouquets like this. No set of portraits would be complete without a visit from a sweet family dog. More and more, my couples are including their pets in their images. I am absolutely a huge fan of this as it personalizes the images even more and is a sweet heirloom to have with your pets.

Green Acre Campus Pointe Wedding Reception

Alyssa and Cannon’s reception inside of Green Acre featured a large hanging sign as well as stunning floral arrangements. And of course, an extensive dessert display stole the spotlight of the evening. The donut wall looked so amazing, I had a guest ask me if they were real!
