It’s happy here, indeed! Jilli and Joey’s smiley personalities could only be matched by a beachside celebration complete with palm fronds, whimsy and colorful painterly details, so boy are we hooked. Their watercolor wedding brings vibrance into play from the tropically printed bridesmaid dresses to the rich donut bar that has us inching closer to the screen. Check it out with us below!

California wedding photographer, Elyse of Plum & Oak Photo, has a spirited personality of her own, so we can see why she’s the perfect match to capture J+J’s wedding day.

From the coordinator, Megan of Festive Event Planning: Jilli and Joey’s wedding day was a reflection of their relationship – colorful, joyful and full of love! As avid beachgoers (they got engaged on the beach in Big Sur) and San Diego locals they opted to celebrate with more than 200 family and friends at the beachside Dana on Mission Bay in San Diego. In designing the day, Jilli sought to bring a sense of tropical glam to the design – as reflected in the watercolor and hibiscus-accented paper goods by Twinkle and Toast and the most magical arrangements of monstera, protea, dahlias, roses and more crafted by The Dainty Lion Not to mention Jilli’s STUNNING, form-fitting mermaid gown!

Some more special details included the table “numbers”, which were, in fact, places the bride and groom had vacationed together, a colorful donut bar with goods from the couple’s favorite shop in downtown San Diego, and a special appearance by the couple’s pup, Kona, who served as the sweetest flower girl!”
