Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa Wedding - Photos + Highlight Film // Shellie + Myles

One of the many things I love about being a San Diego wedding photographer is the opportunity to photograph engagements and weddings in such beautiful and diverse locations. My job is even more fun when couples play into their surroundings and plan beautiful events that work so nicely with their venues. This was certainly the case for Shellie and Myles’ vibrant bohemian wedding at Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa.

When it comes to my photography style, I like to think of myself as fun, free-spirited, and romantic — so when I receive inquiries from couples like Shellie and Myles, who describe themselves as adventurous, goofy, and caring, I know right away that we’ll be a great match!

With these two, I was lucky enough to work with a fun couple who also happened to have great style and such unique details at their wedding. The pair played into the old, Spanish-inspired architecture of San Diego's, Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa, by choosing boho-inspired details and highlighting bold, warm colors. Everything they picked really reflected the cultural influences of San Diego + the bohemian vibes of Southern California.

Two of my favorite details of their wedding day (other than working with the lovely bride and groom, of course!) were Shellie’s bouquet and the bridal party attire. Her bouquet, created by Native Poppy, was a bohemian dream. It formed a perfect textural combination of ombre peaches, oranges, and deep reds, complementing the color theme of the décor and bridesmaids dresses. I loved its organic feel, asymmetry, the combination of so many different stems.

Shellie’s bridal party slayedddd the “mismatched dresses” look! The combination of various and complimentary warm colors added vibrancy to the photographs and was so flattering to the venue, wedding theme, and tones. I couldn’t get enough of these ladies, and the adorable flower girl.

Most of the unique décor, including the gorgeous burnt orange fabric signage, was hand-picked and handmade by Jessica Williams and her team at Crowned Events. They did such an amazing job at coordinating and designing every detail of the wedding to make sure everything was on time and would become the bohemian wedding dream it was.

I loved how happy and laid-back Shellie and Myles were and I loved every second of their wedding day. I hope you enjoy these photos + video as much as I do!
