Romantic Mediterranean wedding inspiration
Event design company Bustle Events (aka the gals behind this incredible wedding) just launched their SoCal HQ, and what better way to show off their San Diego side than with a swoon-worthy shoot at The Rancho Valencia Hotel? After scrolling through this Mediterranean-inspired love story shot by Shane and Lauren Photography, we’re pretty darn excited to have ‘em so close by!
A little something blue in the form of a romantic lace dress…

Marina says, The team of vendors was so much fun to work with and helped bring my vision of a romantic, undone, and vintage feeling design to life. The Rancho Valencia Hotel is stunning and made for the perfect Mediterranean backdrop for this shoot.
Native Poppy listened to my vision and knocked this one out of the park. I asked for wild, undone, and a bit crazy with pops of coral, peach, yellow, and lots of wispy greens and she delivered! Her creations were absolutely stunning and really made a big impact! Adding floral to Smore Sweets‘ lemon naked cake really made it stand out and come to life.
(PS See those dip dyed candles peeking through? Marina created them for a simply DIY.)
Still cannot get over this bouquet!
