Oak Trees Ceremony |Nicole and Isaiah| True Photography | San Diego Wedding Venue

Posted on

Nicole and Isaiah got married under our ever-so-gorgeous Oak Trees and took full advantage of our surrounding property. True Photography gave us a look at the newlyweds’ pictures as they ventured onto the extended wilderness of the Castle. After they were pronounced husband and wife, Nicole and Isaiah’s guests were greeted by an open bar on our Upper Lawn. The tables were adorned by wooden slabs and black lanterns, accompanied by greens and florals by Simply Adina Floral Designs.

Nicole and Isaiah’s cake towered with layers of cheesecake made by The Incredible Cheesecake and the newlyweds later took night pictures – always a great idea at the Castle!

Adding That Special “Something” to Your Wedding

Posted on

It’s important that your wedding day is unique to you and your soon-to-be spouse.

Themes are a great way to customize a wedding and make it unique to your relationship, but what about making the experience unique for your guests? If you’re looking to add that special “something” to your wedding, look no further. We have compiled a list of special “something’s” that you can add to your wedding, making it an experience your guests will never forget.

Not your typical photo booth: Photo booths are very popular, as they allow guests to document in the moment experiences at your wedding, and have a take away. So how do you take something commonly used and make it your own? Our friends at @SDPhotoBus make the photo booth experience one you and your guests are sure to remember.

Retro cars: Cars aren’t always on newly-weds minds, but consider adding a retro car or truck to your wedding. It makes for a great photo op/accessory and isn’t your typical photo frame that you see at other weddings.

Mad Libs: This is a fun way to get your guests involved and let them give you newly wed advice! Title your Mad Libs, “Advice for Newly Weds” and allow your guests to fill in the spaces with fun date ideas, things to never argue about, places to visit and secrets to keeping a marriage strong.

Corn hole: It’s a fun way to let your guests let loose and enjoy a fun game between the reception and ceremony, and dancing! For a more personal touch, include initials on the corn hole boards.

Giant spin the wheel: You can make this yourself, or buy one and then customize it. Add a giant spin wheel with options to include “Kiss Your Date,” “Moonwalk Back to Your Seat,” “Toast to the Bride and Groom,” “Impromptu Speech” and “You Choose.”

Kristin and Ivan Say Their “I Do’s” | James Tang Photography | San Diego Wedding Venues

Posted on

On Saturday, October 17th, 2015, Kristin and Ivan said their “I Do’s” at the beautiful Mt. Woodson Castle. James Tang Photography captured every moment of this special day with perfection! This couple was amazing to work with and the ceremony went  smoothly thanks to Personal Touch Dining. This outgoing and extremely compassionate family had dance moves and energy that we will never forget, and we can thank Sound Prodigy for that!

Organic Elements created amazing bouquets and flower arrangements that gave a lovely design to the special day. We are so excited for Kristin and Ivan and grateful we were apart of their magical day!
