Exciting I-Dos at The Lot San Diego!

The Place!

The venue at Lot 8 is a converted parking lot with wooden walls full of succulents and plants that has a modern, rustic vibe. It was the perfect location for the wedding of Jared and Lauren who envisioned a relaxed celebration in a unique space.  This wedding included spotlight pieces such as, a trailer-turned-bar, a live edge wood table, decorative tires filled with plants, wooden barrels, and many more adorable touches.



Wooden farm tables were brought in for dinner which kept with the vibe of the venue. Centerpieces were created with eucalyptus and accented with candles along the tables. The greenery mixed with grey embellishments tied in with the natural style of the place! Continue reading

Natural + Love Filled Wedding at The Dana


A beautiful wedding, a sweet bride and a group of wonderful guests are some of the ways I would describe the wedding of April and Troy.  The color palette of soft ivories, greys and greens brought the design of the wedding day all together. It was a very special day for the couple for a few reasons.  The couple included lucky money in the wedding favors for their guests who traveled from all over to share this special day with them! The lucky money was every dollar tip that April had made in her younger days that she had been saving in a shoe box for her wedding day. April had been dreaming of her wedding since she was a little girl, however, at one point during their relationship Troy mentioned that he would “never” get married!

Since the dress is on the simple side, brides might wear a fun yet delicate headpiece to bring in color, sparkle, or interest. Most often the bride will wear her hair down with loose curls or a relaxed braid as opposed to a tight updo.
