Erin and Marc’s earthy and romantic San Diego wedding took place at the beautiful Rancho Bernardo Inn. After viewing their wedding, I’m even more convinced that the light, venues, and wedding professionals, especially the fabulous Melissa McClure Photography, are all that much sweeter in California!
One of Erin and Marc’s greatest wishes for their wedding was to carry familial ties throughout the entirety of their day. They turned to Heather of Amorology who did a marvelous job designing each and every detail for their day! Tree stumps were used in pieces such the escort display (I’m obsessed!) and table numbers to represent E+M’s past, present, and future together. I also LOVE the Grandpa’s Questions conversation starters that greeted guests at their tables! Succulents and cookies were placed at every setting, and neutral shades and lilac filled the palette.
Today’s wedding is such a beautiful representation of a couple’s love for each other and their families, and I so hope you adore each and every image as much as I do! Erin is also sharing her best wedding planning tips, so make sure to keep reading.
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
Amorology Weddings (Heather – wedding planner) helped us the most in the planning process, and she and our photographer, Melissa McClure, helped the day of run very smoothly.
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
The most important thing to me when deciding who to work with on my wedding day was to ensure that everyone I surrounded myself with would be very organized and keep us on time with the schedule we had planned, while keeping a calm environment focused on the important aspects of the wedding day.
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
My inspiration for the wedding details and design was our family tree, as family is very important to my husband and I.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
My favorite thing about my wedding was walking into the beautiful ballroom, surrounded by everyone we love, and being introduced as husband and wife.
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
The two pieces of advice that I have for other brides, is to take a moment at your wedding to step back and look at the faces of your family to remember their joy on your wedding day. My second piece of advice is to enjoy the planning process as much as possible, and to surround yourself with trusting vendors so that you will not have to worry about anything on your wedding day.
