Nicole and Dan were married back in June at beautiful St. Malo in Oceanside. It was such a lovely and meaningful day, and one of the details that stood out was Nicole and Dan’s wedding ceremony. During the ceremony, they discussed meeting at a tough time in their lives, and specifically thanked and acknowledged many of their family and friends. This was certainly one of the most interactive and touching ceremonies I’ve ever witnessed, as well as one of the most unique! It was so refreshing to see a bride and groom speak throughout their ceremony, and add meaning in a variety of different ways throughout the day.

The ceremony took place at a private residence on St. Malo, with a view of the ocean. Dinner and dancing continued at a second estate, with an amazing garden. To see more images of their beautiful garden-inspired day, please visit the photographer’s blog:

Many thanks to the vendors that made this day complete!
