As one of San Diego’s premiere wedding venue, Twin Oaks House and Garden in San Marcos creates and inspires love and imagination. Their secluded English gardens set just beyond the garden gates showcases soothing waterfalls, vibrant flowers and beautiful stone fountains throughout the property allowing you to feel a beautiful state of tranquility and peace.

The Venue: Twin Oaks House and Garden

Twin Oaks House & Garden is a turn of the century historic landmark estate surrounding the Old San Marcos Schoolhouse dating back to 1891 and has been exclusively restored as a top wedding venue that offers a artistic vintage feel to it. When Kristina and Sean mentioned that they selected Twin Oaks as they wedding venue, I was more then pleased and so excited to photograph their wedding, because I knew I was going to create some amazing photos of their special wedding day.

The Bride and Groom

It was fate that these two found each other, Kristina from small town in Indiana and Sean from New Zealand were miles apart, but they discovered a way to meet. How the internet connects, they both originally met online, but then in person when Sean came to the US on a business trip. Naturally being a destination wedding for the both of them, the first time I met them was on the day of their engagement session. They both were so sweet and fun to work with. Take a look at Kristina and Sean’s engagement photos here

This venue was perfect for their vintage, shabby chic, garden theme wedding. They used beautiful colors like blush, pink and green throughout the wedding, also accents of coral. During Kristina and Sean’s wedding they shared the most sweetest of vows, giving their family and closest friends a heartfelt moment as they look on. You couldn’t ask for a better day, the weather was amazing and everything was just perfect!

I’m always excited when I have the opportunity to photograph a wedding at the beautiful Estancia Resort & Spa in La Jolla. The landscape of the property is lovely with its Spanish feel and all of its trees and succulents and offers great backdrops for some great photos. Camille and Josh hosted a beautiful wedding with a classic but elegant look of red roses, white calla lilies and hints of teal, champagne and gold colors. All favorite colors of the bride! Their ceremony took place on the Olive Lawn where they had a very sweet exchange of wedding vows.
