Colorful San Diego wedding: Katie + Keith

May 9, 2017

Thought we’d start this wedding right off with one of Jenn Emerling‘s rad portraits of Katie + Keith, isn’t it sweet? These two wanted their San Diego wedding to be colorful and tons of fun, and To La Lune and lots of our other guide members made it happen. We’re thinking each and every one of their 130 guests was pretty thrilled to be part of all this action…


They found Christy of To La Lune via 100LC! Christy says, Katie + Keith are the epitome of fun! From the very beginning of planning + designing their wedding day I knew I was in for a treat when they wanted bold happy colors, a radical dance party, ice cream sandwiches, and a way to incorporate their sweet pups, Rudy & Louie. Their Scripps Seaside ceremony featured ring bearers proclaiming it to be the Best. Day. Ever! And K+K exchanged vows amongst their family and friends, framed by towering palm & overlooking the vast blue Pacific Ocean.  

Katie’s bouquet by Catalina Neal Floral + Design was brimming with ranunculus, peonies, and gardens roses with lots of textured foliage.

Katie + Keith chose the Yeah! Weddings package which included a photographer, DJ, and videographer. They loved having Jenn Emerling document their day.


On a favorite memory… There was the most amazing sunset that night. Keith and I took a few minutes while guests were getting seated for dinner and went to the upstairs balcony at the venue by ourselves. There were a bunch of surfers in the ocean who had all stopped to watch the sky. It was so peaceful and a really nice time to just feel grateful. Our next favorite part was the epic dance party and equally epic pool party the next day. 

Katie says, The best thing I did was choose Christy as our planner. Oh my, she is the absolute best. She has mermaid hair, never stops smiling (not in a creepy way), and is just so so cool. During the planning process she helped us figure out exactly what we wanted then executed it to a degree we could not have imagined. She also had the best recommendations on vendors and I truly felt like I joined a super rad, creative girl gang with her, Peanut Press, and Catalina Neal.

See what inspired Katie on Pinterest. Congrats, guys!
