The cliffside beaches of Sunset Cliffs in San Diego are utterly dreamy! What a perfect location for an anniversary session for two California natives. Lianna Marie Photography captured this sweet session that features soft waves, sandy toes, and a serene couple in love.
Lindsay and Jamin are celebrating 3 years of marriage and wanted to showcase their love with a gorgeous beach anniversary session in San Diego. As California natives who used to live real close to Sunset Cliffs moved a little more inland and haven’t explored the beautiful sunset cliff beach of San Diego in quite some time so they decided it was the perfect location. As you can see it definitely was. They wanted it to be romantic and soft to showcase the love they have for each other.
If you’ve been loving the painterly trend in weddings, you will fall head over heels for this shoot captured by Kathy Beaver Photography! It is filled to the brim with romantic and serene details you can’t miss. From the custom monogram invitations to the live painter to the hand-painted wedding cake, every moment is a dream. But the show stealer is the stunning impressionist landscape painted ceremony backdrop!
Our theme was The Art of Weddings, which was inspired by the fine art painter Lucy Reiser’s work and the eight foot painting that she created as our ceremony centerpiece. This shoot began with the question of how we incorporate and invest in the fine arts through weddings. We wanted to see how many ways we could incorporate the fine arts in the shoot and included as many local artists and artisans as possible.
We started with a truly unique, one of a kind backdrop that could also be kept and used in a couple’s home. This lead to the commission of a large scale, 8 foot by 6 foot painting by Lucy. For this design, the ceremony backdrop mimicked the stunning views from The Greystone Inn, which is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

If you love vintage and romance, the Edwardian era is for you! This stunning garden Edwardian wedding shoot from XO and Fetti is a vintage lover’s dream with plenty of pearls and flowing florals. The color palette of soft yellow and blue is perfect for springtime and we love the pop of floral print!
For this shoot, we wanted to capture the romance of long summer afternoons and garden parties of the Edwardian age. Our vision blossomed from the art nouveau aesthetic of our venue – The Christmas House Inn & Gardens of Southern California. We pulled inspiration from the classical charm of the architecture and the picturesque color palette of the gardens, using various shades of blues, peaches, and golds to create soft, timeless images.
Our bride is wearing a delicate lace dress and classic pearls that evoke the magic of Edwardian fashion, while our groom looks dapper in a complimentary tweed suit. In our stationary, we included a custom drawn crest, a hand written love letter, and vintage postage. Everything from the table linens to the cake design were prepared with this theme in mind.
