A little personal update: Jack and I are still on the road on our yearlong honeymoon (in Morocco at the moment!) & currently nursing a massive we-love-and-miss-you Cape Town hangover. After the most incredible five weeks in the Western Cape, this South African-inspired Socal wedding is giving me all the feels.
San Diego couple Jenna and Andrew have a certain love for the outdoors – having traveled the world, frequented California’s parks, honeymoon on safari in South Africa & even gotten engaged in Yosemite National Park, it was important to them to find a venue that kept their party in the wild outdoors. Leo Carillo Ranch provided the perfect rustic space lending plenty of shady outdoor space.
Once the perfect spot was chosen, the couple took inspiration from Jenna’s South African heritage – bright colorful patterns, bold king protea florals (we couldn’t believe how many grow wild along the highways in SA!) traditional shweshwe fabrics and adorable African animal tokens for the tables. We’re also quite smitten with the couple’s colorful quilted chuppah, handmade by the groom’s mother.
