Levyland Estate Carlsbad Wedding

I love everything about this couple and well their entire family for that matter. I cried and laughed so many times during this wedding I lost count. Brianne and Mark are just plain wonderful and I could not have been more thrilled to be apart of their big day. Weddings like this- that are incredibly meaningful and exceptionally fun are why I love my job. 


Levyland is an incredible venue that sits on a picturesque lagoon just beyond the ocean. One of my favorite stylistic decisions Brianne and I made was to hold the ceremony in a unique location on the property. In order to keep with the rustic atmosphere of the wedding we decided to have the ceremony in one the the parking lots instead of the grass lawn. I know what you are thinking BUT this was not your typical "parking lot". In May the lot was covered in wildflowers and boy do I mean covered! 


Can you believe Brianne made all the signs herself?! She blew me away with her hidden talent! 


It was such a special touch to have both Mark and Brianne's parents wedding photos on display. I can honestly say it was amazing to see these two families and the amount of love and support they have for Mark and Brianne. One of the most memorable events of the night is when Brianne's father surprised the newlyweds and performed a traditional Hawaiian song during the reception.
