San Diego Botanical Gardens Wedding - Encinitas, CA / Casey & Russell
Ian and I first got to know Casey and Russell because they are pals with Kristin and Dimitri [see their wedding pt1+pt2], one of our favorite couples from San Diego. Right from our first phone conversation we knew we would love them. Casey is a pure joy: friendly and sweet with an infectious smile and laugh. Russell is super funny and charming. Apparently we're not the only ones who think they're awesome - Casey and Russell had a huge bridal party to stand by them as they took their wedding vows.
For their wedding, Ian and I ventured to the San Diego Botanical Gardens Wedding Venue, a beautiful outdoor space. It's a wide open garden complete with different habitats of plants- from rain forest to desert it even boasts the nation's top bamboo collection. No joke, it's huge! The ceremony was held in a walled garden and then we had free reign to shoot in the rest of the property. Always a treat for us.
All in all these two had a celebration of their love that was perfectly in line with their personalities. Congratulations Casey and Russell!
