The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe wedding inspiration I’m about to show you is one of my favorite things I’ve ever photographed at one of the most gorgeous wedding venues in the San Diego area. I just love the way Brynn of Dandy & Fine Parties describes her vision:

“When dreaming up my version of a spring wedding that incorporates this year’s Pantone colors, rose quartz & serenity, I knew I wanted to layer the overall design with the soft femininity of this cotton candy palette, but still be true to my colorful style. So, naturally, I to added in hints of cheer with fun and fresh yellow, which truly elevated the palette to a new level.
 
And what is more cheerful and yellow than lemons? So, our love story begins in and near the lemon groves of sunny San Diego, CA.”

I’m utterly in love with Alyssa Kristin’s blue tulle wedding gown. It’s perfect for the season and is one half of Pantone’s colors of the year: serenity. Hanging on a ladder painted and lemonized (new words are the best) by Brynn, the gown couldn’t have been more beautiful for a Lemon Grove themed shoot.

Dolled up by Erin of Unveiled Bridal Beauty, our bride Coral carried a bridal bouquet of yellow, white, and pink blooms from Blue Ladder Botany. I actually took this bouquet home and played around with it for the next few days. Makes me wish I had fresh flowers daily!Inn at Rancho Santa Fe wedding bridal portrait of the bride and her large pink yellow and green feminine bouquet Wedding large floral bridal bouquet arrangement with white and pink roses greenery and yellow daffodils, Inn at Rancho Santa Fe Wedding

Weeds and Whimsy calligraphed copper ink on a lemon-themed paper for this beautiful wedding invitation. The colors really do bring out the spirit of an Inn at Rancho Santa Fe wedding. Everything is so light, bright, and playful.

The tablescape featured modern white chairs from Witty Rentals, along with pillows, pink glassware, and the most beautiful floral arrangement I’ve ever seen.

Moving closer into the table, Casa de Perrin’s gorgeous dinnerware makes a huge statement along with the rose quartz and serenity calligraphed place cards.

Let’s pause for a minute to admire the glorious work of Hey There, Cupcake! I love working with Stevi, the genius designer behind HTC. She creates unique, modern designs that knock the pants off all other cakes. Hey There Cupcake three tier cake with white and pink blush tiers and wafer paper pink rose with lemon slices

Ending the shoot, we traveled to a local lemon grove for a final shot that really rounded out the shoot’s theme. All in all, this day was magic. Look for the Green Wedding Shoes feature to read more about the inspiration behind the design.
