Sophia & Ryan were originally supposed to say their “I Dos” in April, just a few weeks after the whole country went on lockdown. After months of uncertainty, they decided that nothing was going to stop them from from becoming husband and wife, and chose to go ahead with a “micro wedding” at the beautiful Cape Rey Carlsbad Hilton Hotel. Regardless of all the stresses of changing plans, their “wedding 2.0” was nothing short of perfect. With an organic garden feel and colors of dusty blue and creamy whites, they chose the perfect location for their intimate ceremony with less than 40 of their closest family and friends present.
Sophia looked effortlessly stunning in a Lillian West gown with a dramatic cathedral length veil. Brooke, of Wildflower Design Studio, designed timeless bouquets and floral installations featuring anemones, garden roses, olive branches, and dusty miller. Cape Rey Carlsbad served as a perfect backdrop for their ceremony, and was just a quick walk away from the Carlsbad beach, where we captured their formal portraits. Many tears were shed during their emotional vows as the sun began to set behind them – it was a perfect reminder that love will always find a way, even in the midst of a worldwide pandemic!
I am so grateful to have met this gorgeous couple, and wish them all the happiness in the world. I hope you enjoy some highlights from this perfect day!
