I’ve got a sunny, warm California wedding to share with you this week. Kara and Taylor got married at Stone Gardens in San Diego, California this past June. Kara and I worked closely together on their custom watercolor wedding invitation sets. This wedding is full of lovely wedding inspiration from the pretty blush color palette, unique custom wedding dress, gorgeous florals, to the acute attention to details the couple included in the wedding day.

I really enjoyed working with the bride to paint their wedding invitation based on beauty of the ceremony and reception site, Stone Gardens. I worked from photographs of the location and created the pretty designs below.

I grasped the opportunity to ask a few questions to the bride after her wedding to learn and share what the lasting moments were of their big day. Here is the first question…

Allison: “What was your favorite detail at your wedding? (I’m referring to a physical detail like the cake, your dress, food, etc.)”

Kara: “My favorite detail from the wedding was my bouquet. It was 100% peonies (my favorite flower) and blush pink to match my wedding colors. It was a very exciting treat to end of having them. Since I had a late June wedding, the florist was doubtful that peonies would still be available, so I had a backup of roses and hydrangea. However, the week before the wedding, she surprised me with them. There was a few weeks in June where it had rained a few times and I guess that made the season last a little longer.”
