This dreamy wedding at Ethereal Gardens in Fallbrook, California had everything you could want out of a wedding day! A totally in love couple, a gorgeous outdoor ceremony, and the most epic reception. Regan and Riley met each other through a mutual friend. Riley noticed Regan right away and quickly developed a crush. Regan took a little longer since Riley shared a name with her sister (struggles of having a unisex name… I would know!)
In the end, the two became each other’s best friends. And from their own words: it was easy to fall in love after that. Their wedding day was absolutely perfect, and a beautiful representation of their relationship. The two shared a first look before the ceremony, and it was just the sweetest thing ever! Riley could barely contain his emotions. Regan looked so beautiful in her a-line wedding dress and long veil, and Riley didn’t look too shabby either in a classic blue groom suit.
The outdoor wedding ceremony took place under this beautiful canopy of hanging potted plants. It really was stunning and something I’ve never seen before, and you should absolutely scroll to check out those pictures. All the greenery, paired with the wedding’s color palette of sage and navy with gold accents, worked out perfectly.
The outdoor tented reception was such a blast! It was beautifully designed with hanging lights, a large dance floor, and simple reception table details. One of my favorite parts was the Polaroid guestbook! I snuck away with Regan and Riley during the reception to capture some golden hour bride and groom portraits.
This was an amazing wedding day for an amazing couple! Thank you, Regan and Riley for giving me the honor of capturing your wedding day.
