Real Wedding: Teale & Darren

These high school sweethearts tied the knot with an intimate ceremony and reception at the charming Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa.

While most high school crushes last only a few months, this high school love only grew stronger over the years. Teale and Darren, both San Diego natives, met as early teens while attending the same high school. In fact, Darren professed his love to Teale in her Freshman yearbook! Fifteen years later, Darren surprised Teale with a proposal on her favorite childhood beach. Their intimate wedding at Rancho Valencia, captured by Half Full Photography, was full of whimsical, delicate details – the flower crown being one of my favorites!

Love Teale’s enchanting flower crown?
