When you find a wedding venue like the San Diego Spiritual Retreat Center in Santa Ysabel, CA, you might fall in love like our bride and groom, Robin and Joe did! The venue is a bit of everything you'd want in your perfect day. Suited for both your ceremony and reception, making it the perfect choice for a full family packed, love filled day!
Typically couples book their engagement sessions with us before the big day. We enjoy getting to know our clients and learning what brought them together, as well as their unique love story. In this case, the wedding day was our first meeting. We had kept in contact leading up, and learned little things here and there about the couple. Upon meeting, we knew this day was going to be filled with laughter, joy and lots of love. Robin and Joe compliment each other perfectly and are so welcoming and humble. It was like spending a day with friends, which is what we love so much about our job!
With Ramona and Julian being our normal stomping grounds, we were surprised to come across the Spiritual Retreat Center. Nestled off the 79, on your way to Julian, CA, we never knew of its existence til this day. It's grounds are perfect for those romantic wooded bridal portraits., with plenty of room to roam and grab those large family shots as well. We especially loved the special planting ceremony that was included in the wedding. Little touches like that, make for beautiful memories to cherish for years to follow!
Congrats Robin and Joe! Thank you for trusting us to capture your special day, we are blessed beyond measure to meet couples and share in special days just like yours! We wish you a lifetime of happiness and love together!
