Vibrant and Tropical San Diego Botanic Garden Wedding

Y’allllll, this vibrant and tropical wedding at San Diego Botanic Garden was MAGICAL! I always say Nick and Jessi are like sunshine in human form. They’re kind, thoughtful, and so so enjoyable to work with. Their joy is infectious and their love is effortless (aka a photographer’s dream). Even better, they are also a fellow vendor – they are the owners of @happycamperphotobus <3 Watching them take photos by/in their bus was a full circle moment – they’ve worked so many weddings so it was awesome to have their bus at their own wedding!

I cannot say enough amazing things about San Diego Botanic Garden. When I say I am OBSESSED with this venue, it’s an understatement. It’s truly an oasis. When you arrive you are surrounded by lush greenery, vibrant florals and stunning ocean views. Plus, the staff is extremely helpful and accommodating. Jessi said they chose San Diego Botanic Garden because they love plants, nature and everything about outdoor venues. Additionally, having @happycamperphotobus was A MUST, and this was easily attainable & a beautiful fit with the space!

ALSO, We NEED to discuss alllll the fun details in this wedding. SoCal culture was weaved all throughout the day with the amazing surfboard seating chart, VW photo bus, the avocado bar, and a disco ball above the dance floor (my personal favorite).

Words From the Bride and Groom:

What is your FAVORITE memory or moment from your wedding day!

Our first dance! We wanted to make it unique and memorable, and hyping up the crowd before the final big jump felt fitting 🙂

What is one piece of advice you would give to future brides planning their wedding?

It’s hard to choose just one piece of advice, but to say the least, don’t overwhelm or stress yourself out. It’s all going to come together eventually, so start planning early, have logistics locked in early, and embrace the process!

How did you feel when looking through your final wedding gallery?

Emotional in all the best ways. Everything we wanted captured, including things we didn’t even have time to see ourselves, was documented. Additionally, my husband and I don’t feel incredibly natural being romantically photographed but the results were breathtaking.

If you were to recommend me to your best friend what would you say?

B*tch you better choose Erin!!! Not only is she sweet as hell, but she’s incredibly talented and ALWAYS delivers.
