Green Gables Estate Wedding Photos | San Diego, CA Photographer | Hunter and James

Joyous.

If I had to describe their Wedding Day in one word, that would be it. Happiness is always an element for every wedding day we are a part of, but sometimes there are celebrations where the joy and love for the couple is so palpable, you can literally feel it around you. Hunter + James were surrounded by so much love from their family and friends that day, every photo had a little bit of magic — I think that’s what happens when soulmates find each other in this big crazy world. The universe celebrates by sprinkling their union with magic …

THE LOCATION: THE GREEN GABLES ESTATE IN SAN MARCOS, CA

When this couple mentioned they would be having a romantic vintage inspired wedding close to San Diego, I had no idea just how beautiful their venue would be. The Green Gables Estate is filled with lovely lush foliage and the most wonderful garden terrace perfect for outdoor weddings.  There are so many incredible corners and details throughout the property, including a gorgeous house with glorious natural light for getting ready portraits for the couple and their respective bridal parties — it’s truly a dreamy space for photographs. We love venues that can host wedding preparations as well as the ceremony and reception afterwards — it makes it so much easier for the bride and groom and their guests!

THEIR LOVE STORY

While Hunter + James first met in college, their Wedding Day was a reunion of sorts — the gathering of their families from both near and far, the melding of their friends from past and present, and the joining of their daily lives, which had be separate for months leading up to the big day. You see James and Hunter had been living in different ends of the country because of work — so when their wedding celebration finally arrived, it was truly the start of their new beginning together. And to watch them finally reunite after months of living apart was a beautiful thing.

We had so much fun photographing Hunter + James’ engagement session at the L.A. Arboretum, so we knew their Wedding Day would be equally incredible. Thank you Hunter + James for letting us be a part of your sweet celebration. We could not be happier for you two and hope your lives together continue to flourish with love, laughter and happiness always!
