vanessa + adam’s san diego boho wedding | san diego backyard

san diego boho wedding couple angle wings and gypsy steampunkMARRIED and 100% blissful! My good friends Vanessa and Adam, who are part of my neighborhood crowd in University Heights, are ridiculously in love and made it official with their San Diego boho wedding in her mom’s backyard, where they met a few years back. I was so stoked to be there to capture their explosive joy and uncontainable love. san diego boho wedding gypsy bride puts on makeup before her backyard wedding
Vanessa and Adam decided to get ready together, which I always just absolutely adore. gypsy bride helps her groom get ready for their san diego boho weddingsteampunk groom gets ready for his san diego boho wedding in momI love how Vanessa described their vibe…
She was playing the part of gypsy pixie punk rocking goddess and Adam is very suitably a sophisticated garden gnome. Perfection!!

These guys are so good like that. You can’t help but smile when you’re in their company. We actually met them on the patio at the hub of the neighborhood, Small Bar, and were instantly smitten with their positivity and warmth. Oh, if those tables could talk… quite the conversations about life, the universe, and everything that have taken place there!gypsy punk rock bride puts on corset for her san diego boho wedding on halloween
Ready for your angel wings, buttercup??! friend holds out angel wings for san diego boho wedding bridesan diego boho wedding bride puts on her DIY angel wingsVanessa chose to create a unique wedding outfit that reflected her personality and brought in a little piece of many people in her life. She collected scarves from friends and family and combined them to create a skirt. Absolutely brilliant and heart-warming! I think that gives you a pretty good idea of the kind of soul she has! san diego boho wedding gypsy bride puts on bell ankletAnd thank goodness Super Woman was on the helpful crew for the day! Naturally, people with big hearts tend to be surrounded by others with big hearts. I like that a lot <3  3 <3 supergirl at halloween wedding cuddles with dog. Adam helped Vanessa with the finishing touch to her ensemble… an aged ear of corn. Seems perfect as corn represents energy to do what is good and the actual good we can do—doing things that are loving and caring toward others. Well, if you know these two, you know that’s how they roll!  couple helps each other get ready for their san diego boho wedding Good work, team!!! girls high five while getting ready for a san diego boho wedding Adam and Vanessa’s amazing custom-created rings that don’t contain stones, but rather petrified wood cut from the same piece.

Adam was re-creating Vanessa’s mom’s backyard. This is the spot where Vanessa would come watch him work every opportunity she had.
