For Kirsten and Tom, the etherial beauty and seamlessness of their garden-inspired wedding at the Twin Oaks House & Garden Estate in San Marcos, CA was a day in May to remember. We first met this couple a few months back during their exciting engagement session at Marian Bear Memorial Park & La Jolla Shores in San Diego. On this day, set among cascading gardens of canopied trees, delicate blooms of flowers and angelic stone sculptures and fountains, Kirsten and Tom turned their long-time friendship into a lifetime commitment to each other, surrounded by their loving friends, family and loved ones. With endless moments of simple and pure romance, Kirsten and Tom took their first steps as husband and wife under a beautifully aged gazebo in the garden adorned with leaved flowers and blooms. As the day led into the reception, endless plates of flavored cupcakes, eclectic cocktail favorites and a picture covered table of their favorite childhood and coupled moments together surrounded the room with love and appreciation for the journey they have had together to this point in their lives. A day with no shortage of smiles and laughter, we are so excited we were able to capture their love for each other once again on their wedding day! Thank you to the bride and groom for letting us be a part of your big day, as well as the incredible Twin Oaks House & Garden Estate staff for creating a stunning day of celebration for this beautiful couple.
