Yazmin + Andres were married at intimate garden wedding in the heart of San Diego. They chose the George W. Marston House in Balboa Park as their venue which made the most amazing backdrop for their reception and ceremony. When Yazmin inquired with me it was my first time hearing about the Marston house and I had no clue it was used a wedding venue! It’s the perfect San Diego wedding venue for an intimate wedding and conveniently so close to downtown! You can find out all about the Marston house here and check out the beautiful photos of the inside!

Yazmin started her day getting ready at a nearby airbnb with the coolest cement walls and natural light. Firstly I got to capture her beautiful details and emerald green shoes! My mind was then blown she walked out with her beautiful floral wedding dress by BHLDN. I couldn’t wait to capture it! Her mom helped her get into her dress and then we headed over to the venue. When I arrived Andres was getting his boutineer on with the help of his mom and we got ready for the ceremony.

The couple had the most beautiful ceremony surrounded by their closest family, friends and gorgeous baby’s breath filled floral pieces! One of my favorite parts of the details this day was all of the Chinoiserie pattern everywhere done in the most tasteful way!

After the ceremony we explored the grounds taking all the photos. Afterwards Yazmin + Andres spent the evening taking polaroid photos, eating yummy tacos, and hanging out with all of their guests!

This intimate Redlands wedding did not disappoint! Joseph and Melissa are two of the kindest people I have ever met and I was so happy to be able to capture their beautiful micro wedding.  I love shooting micro weddings because they just feel so freaking good! Like you know that feeling you get when you’re just with the people you love and feeling good? I feel that at your day too! Especially at intimate weddings.

The day started with Joseph and Melissa getting ready inside of the historic building. They then shared the sweetest first look hidden away in the back of the Asistencia where they could spend some alone time together before the ceremony. After the ceremony the newlyweds shared a meal (which was breakfast, HOW FUN!) with their family at a HUGE, beautifully decorated, family style table. We snuck off for some mid-day newlywed portraits and explored all around the venue in the process. Afterwards the couple danced with each other and their parents, and then spent the rest of the evening hanging out with their closest friends and family.

The Asistencia wedding venue is so perfect for micro weddings. It’s a great size for a sweet and secluded family filled day, has the prettiest photo backgrounds and beautiful getting ready locations. There was just something about the closed in-ness (if that makes sense) of the Asistencia in the fact that it’s located on a busy street but once you’re inside the walls you are transported to the sweetest intimate wedding ever!
