Stephen and Mae invited close family and friends to their coastal chic La Jolla Real Wedding at a private residence in beautiful Bird Rock. They said their “I Dos” at a park overlooking the ocean just a couple of blocks away from the reception. The couple shares a special love for this park since it’s close to their favorite coffee shop, Bird Rock Coffee Roasters. Every Friday for the past 3+ years, they’ve had a 7 a.m. date at this exact spot.
The wedding included personalized details such as pre-ceremony cold brew coffee for their guests. The bride’s parents grew the flowers used for the ceremony arch and reception decor, and her aunt made gold earrings for the bridesmaids.
Stephen and Mae fell in love with the idea of a taco truck, so their favorite taco shop, The Taco Stand, created a pop-up taco stand and cooked up tacos and quesadillas with homemade tortillas, chips, and guacamole. For dessert, they had a whole dessert bar that included vegan coconut macaroons and mini donuts. At the end of the night, guests got to take home wedding favor bags with roasted coffee beans special ordered from a local coffee shop.
