Real Wedding: Amanda & Ben

Although this native Los Angeles couple attended the same high school together (and even had their yearbook photos right next to each other) they did not meet until after college. Once they finally crossed paths, the rest was history!

Ben and Amanda searched up and down the West Coast for a perfect place to celebrate their big day and finally found their dream venue to hold their reception.  They decided on  Paradise Point, San Diego.  This real wedding ceremony was held at California’s first church and one of its biggest landmarks, The Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala. The intimate location gave the guests a sense of warmth, culture, and simplicity.  The understated elegance of their ceremony was carried through to the reception where the gold, ivory, and pops of navy tones created a relaxed and natural environment.

Our favorite part? Amanda and Ben’s amazing ride! Vintage cars, red pumps, and gold accents- what more could you want?
