Kristina and Justin’s wedding was full of adventure! The day started with the ladies getting ready. Carmen Tafoya of Hyde Edwards Salon and Spa gave the ladies hairstyles to make them even more gorgeous for the big day. Kristina’s close friend provided makeup services. This beauty team helped Kristina to radiate on her special day.
Because this lively couple are also school teachers, their guests arrived in style… in school buses! Thanks to Grand Pacific Charter, they were able to share their school experience with their close friends and loved ones. The couple and their bridal party chose another mode of transportation. They arrived in a stylish wood paneled bus called Big Woody from Big Woody Transportation.
The Spanish Village is where it all took place. This venue is an artistic village tucked away in Balboa Park. Its vibrant colors made it a lively environment for such a spirited couple.
Because it was an outdoor evening wedding, the couple thoughtfully left a basket of wraps for the ladies to borrow if they got chilly. Guests were able to find their tables by picking up a handcrafted vintage styled place card hanging in the gazebo.
From the margarita bar and roasted pig to the delicious homemade Julian pies everything on this couple’s day radiated originality. Their ideas were outside of the box which helped to represent their genuine love for one another.
Guests raved over the delectable dinner. El Indio provided mouth watering Mexican cuisine which kept everyone going back for more! Bruce of Battleson Entertainment created a festive atmosphere and kept the celebration going all evening. Bruce is highly experienced, has a calm demeanor and is always a joy to work with.
The couple’s close friend, Maria has a talent for creating gorgeous floral decor. Thanks to her, all the bouquets and centerpieces for the day looked spectacular.
Aaron and Samantha of A+S Photography did a wonderful job of capturing each and every special moment of this couple’s fabulous day. From the I Do’s to the pie cutting and more, A+S treated the day as if it were their own, never missing a beat.
We wish this wonderful couple the very best! Thank you Kristina and Justin for allowing At Your Side Planning to be part of such an amazing day.
