Estancia La Jolla Resort Wedding

EW-cover-spring2014Featured in Exquisite Weddings Magazine!  Romantic and elegant with a fresh grey and coral color palette, Gaby and Clement’s Estancia La Jolla Resort Wedding was a perfect blend of DIY and beautiful styling by Bliss Events.  Flower filled glass globes and delicate chandeliers hung from the lush tree that they were married beneath.  Guests left finger print leaves and well wishes on a matching hand drawn tree of love.  Tree branch accents and the finger print elements were woven throughout the decor creating an overall theme that felt stylish yet natural.

The real show stopper, though, was Gaby’s gorgeous dress!  Just loved the fabulous back!!  Gaby & Clement are perfection together – stunning and sweet all at once.  We feel so honored to have been a part of such a fabulous day!


“Jen and Shane at Acqua Photo made us feel so special for our wedding day, they are just so easy going and smiling. Our families were from France and from Ecuador so it was definitely a bit challenging for the family pictures but they nailed it. On top of making it fun, the pictures are just outstanding and way above what we even expected.

Before the wedding, they handled our engagement session and it was extraordinary. Jen took care of us and made us feel comfortable, since both of us didn’t have any experience getting photographed. We basically had no idea what to do and Jen was so helpful, really telling us what to do and how – in such a manner that it was fun, and we were smiling the whole time. On top of getting amazing pictures, it was also such a great experience.

We are talking to them now to do a ‘rock the dress’ photo shoot so that we get to enjoy shooting with them one more time! We highly recommend them!”
