Fatima & Justin had a gorgeous wedding in the secluded grounds of Ethereal Open Air Resort in Escondido. Tucked away in the quiet hills of north San Diego and surrounded by lush green gardens, this venue combined equal parts rustic and elegant to create a beautiful vintage feel for their day. The color palette was kept simple and romantic – lots of greenery and blush tones paired with rustic details like wood farm tables and lots and lots of twinkling market lights.
The highlight of the night had to be the heartfelt, tear-filled, laugh-until-you-cry-some-more reception. Fatima and Justin are surrounded by so many people who love them deeply – I mean just look at the size of their bridal party! Their friends delivered some of the greatest, most sincere, and equally entertaining speeches I’ve heard (and I hear a lot of speeches as a wedding photographer!). I’m so honored I was able to capture all those genuine smiles, tears, and belly laughs for them to cherish for years to come.
Congrats Fatima & Justin! May your future together be constantly surrounded by this much love and more.
As always, big thanks also to my incredible second shooter Paige Nelson.
