Multicultural San Diego Wedding

One thing I absolutely adore about my job is getting the chance to hear brides gush so enthusiastically about their wedding days, and hearing Diana talk about her wedding day, you get the undeniable sense that it was the best day of her life. Diana, from Mexico, and Ian, from Scotland, met while in Spain and fell in love shortly thereafter. With this background, it’s no surprise that their wedding day was a fusion of culture and love, all captured perfectly by SetFour Photographers.

From the bride, Diana: I went to Spain for an exchange program and met the most awesomest Scottish guy ever (named Ian) and after a 6 month love affair we decided that an ocean was not enough to keep us apart. So 4 years and a few trips back and forth I got to marry him, and I’m oh so very happy!

Our wedding was on August 16th 2013, in San Diego, California at the Prado Restaurant in Balboa Park. We couldn’t resist the Spanish feel the venue had and decided it was perfect for our wedding since it reminded us of where we met. Our wedding was an explosion of love crafts and everything nice, a romantic evening and a merge of both our cultures while paying homage to where we met, all while keeping it small and intimate so everybody felt like an important part of it (because they were).

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Don’t be afraid to say no to people, and don’t be afraid to ask for help of family and friends (especially if you know they are particularly good at building things or crafts). Also give them tasks you know they will be good at, but always know and be aware that they are putting their time and effort into helping you to make your dream wedding happen so be grateful for that. Have a clear idea of what you want and have fun with it! And enjoy every second of the planning because it goes by so fast and don’t stress too much at the end of the day even if everything goes wrong it’s still the happiest of days for the bride and groom (at least it was for me). Finally, do a LOT of research and have a realistic budget.
