L’Auberge Del Mar Wedding | Nathan and Cassandra
Nathan and Cassandra have one of those better-than-fiction love stories that has my heart doing flips!
They met online while Cassandra was back in California visiting her parents, but never got the chance to meet in person before she returned home to the east coast. They kept in touch… and before they ever met in real life, their hearts couldn’t deny that they were completely smitten.
Without a doubt, they were in love before they ever truly met.
When Nathan and Cassandra FINALLY got to meet in person, they knew it had to be special… so they went to the most special place on planet earth: Disneyland!! 😍 (For their FIRST date- I mean how magical is that??) It didn’t take long for these lovebirds to just *know* this was it, and about a year later they made it official by getting engaged (in Maui, no less!).
Their wedding day at L’Auberge Del Mar was the perfect blend of beautiful, sentimental, and celebratory… the best way to sum up their crazy-awesome love-story.
Nathan and Cassandra have the kind of selfless hearts that others gravitate towards, and they deeply honor their family and friends. It was written all over their wedding day – from the precious heirloom jewelry Cassandra wore, to the way they took special care of their wedding party, to the many beautiful moments they took to honor her father, who had recently passed away.
And wow-ee, we adore the whole team that made this day SO pretty to look at! Melissa Barrad of I Do… Weddings and Events was their stellar coordinator, the florals by Parker & Posies were oh-so-beautiful (we love-love-love their team!), and our friends West Coast Wedding Cinema captured the day beautifully on film.
