This Vistonian wedding had so many perfect details that I was swooning the entire time. Between the cream and rust colored florals and the unique indoor venue, I can not choose what I loved more!
I am a sucker for earth tones colors and this decor delivered all the magical fall vibes! I also could not get enough of the candle lit aisle way, which was repurposed into the reception table decor. Most San Diego wedding venues are outdoor and do not allow candles or fire of any kind, so this was such a treat and I think it really created a romantic mood for the space.
The Vistonian is a gorgeous indoor venue located in Vista, California. It has so many beautiful photo-op spots surrounding the outside of the venue as well. You would never guess by the photos, but this venue is directly across from a shopping mall and some condominiums.
I used the beautiful tile wall, arched walk ways and green plant life in these areas to capture the beauty of the location and make the couple feel like they were in a private, secluded space. When I look at the vines scaling the walls, it makes you wonder if we actually transported to a garden in Italy instead of being on the side of the road!
One of my main jobs as a photographer is to be creative with spaces like this and framing each image in a way that tells a story. There were so many other awesome spots in the area that we could have walked to but we fell short on time.
I can’t wait to return here for another wedding and utilize some of those backgrounds! If you are interested a Vistonian Wedding, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
Brianna and Nathan are the most darling couple who make everyone around them feel so loved and comfortable. Once I spent some time with them during their engagement session, I could immediately tell how great of a match they were! Congratulations again to Mr and Mrs Cook!
