California couple Lisa and Julien were wed on a sunny San Diego afternoon this past summer. Their private estate reception carried a classic summer Italian wedding theme with deep blue glassware, hand-painted dinner plates, and an abundance of fresh lemons. Each place setting was complete with a little bottle of limoncello. 

Southern California wedding photographers Dear Lovers shared more about this sweet summertime wedding with us:

"We had the pleasure of photographing Lisa & Julien's gorgeous seaside wedding at Hacienda Loma, a private estate in the heart of Sunset Cliffs in San Diego, California. Planned by the amazing Karina of Couture Events, their ceremony and reception was adorned in luminous white florals, lemons galore, and the sweetest hints of coastal blue tones! The entire lush venue was transformed into an elegant and summery space, with views of the Pacific Ocean and a warm, sunshine-filled atmosphere."

"The bride wore a classic, fitted gown, with whimsical lace details in the bodice. Her bridesmaids wore blue gowns which flowed beautifully in the coastal breeze. The groom was dressed in a grey linen tux, with a blue ribbon-wrapped boutonniere. The groomsmen donned classic black suits. The bouquets and florals, so beautifully designed by Posies Flowers, were spread throughout the Hacienda and paired with lush greens. All of their components complimented each other so nicely, with a summery seaside color palette."

"We are so thankful to have captured such an incredibly sweet couple, with so much love for each other and the people who surrounded them. We've never seen such a large, joyous dance party! Here's to a lifetime of dancing, belly laughs, and lots of love."
