San Ysidro Ranch Wedding by Jose Villa Photography + Joy de Vivre Part I

April 26th. 2012 by Abby Larson | Filed Under | 26 comments

I’m a girl’s girl. The kind that will always find comfort in the color pink. That will forever sigh when I see a bundle of peonies. The kind of girl’s girl that can spot a perfect Jose Villa photograph from a mile away. And whose fingers can’t ever find the right words to introduce one of his stunning weddings.  So imagine my nerdiness when you layer on a bride that is glowing from the inside out, a groom that is all dreaminess and a wedding style by Joy de Vivre and Florette Floral Designs that would make anyone swoon. Yeah, I know. Pure wedding bliss in full effect. We have Part II coming up next, but if you want to cheat (and we totally get it), you can check out the full gallery right here.

From the Bride… I’ve always dreamed of a garden wedding. There is something so effortlessly romantic and beautiful about nature. We kept our wedding simple and tried to allow the beautiful surroundings at San Ysidro Ranch to stand out. With only 60 of our closest friends and family (plus our precious poodle, Molly), the day was intimate and special. We had the ceremony in a grassy lawn with two arches adorned with small white roses.  Dinner was served in a cozy cottage, warmly lit by the setting sun. The characteristic fireplace added a homey touch alongside the bookshelf of vintage books and vases. The long wooden tables we sat around came to life with gorgeous centerpieces arranged by the amazing Kelly from Florette Designs. She also arranged my unforgettable bouquet of peonies, dahlias, and jasmine vines, while my sweet bridesmaids each held single-stemmed blush peonies. We took a break and had a moment to ourselves in the lavender fields, just Jason and me, soaking in the remainder of the sun and all the beauty surrounding us. Our photographer, Jose, and our cinematographer, Joel, captured every precious moment and were the sweetest people to be around. There was so much love in the air, and to us, this was the most perfect day.

You guys know what tends to happen to me when I get my hands on a Jose Villa wedding. I turn into a five year old who just took her first steps inside a candy store. Giddy, flustered, squealing here and there for no particular reason. Well, that’s exactly what I did when I opened my email to see this gem of a wedding sitting there all perfect and pretty. Then I saw the vendor list…Jill La FleurJoel SerratoModern Day DesignTeam Hair & Makeup and that five year old inside of me? Well, let’s just say that I had to put her in timeout to calm her down.
