The Hidden Castle Wedding, Part One|Roman and Zlatka

Beauty radiates from these two like warm sunshine.

I’m serious – when you stand near Roman and Zlatka, there’s an infectious energy that will invade your heart. No matter what you’re doing or where you are with them, you’ll feel warmer, happier, and just plain joyful.

So you can imagine the insane energy these two radiated on their wedding day! Especially once Zlatka slipped on her downright stunning Ines de Santo gown – one of my FAVORITE gowns of the entire year! It made this already gorgeous girl simply angelic.

And when Roman wrapped his arms around his once-in-a-lifetime love at their first look, the day went from happy to heart-bursting joyful!

Now, as you look through this wedding you might wonder if we were somehow transported from the hills of San Diego to the hills of France. But no, my friends. This very limited, very hidden estate venue called The Hidden Castle is modeled after a 15th century French chateau is right here in our beautiful city!

In fact, Roman and Zlatka’s guests flew to San Diego from all over the world (Ukraine, Bulgaria, Russia, and even China were all represented!), and they didn’t tell their guests where the wedding would be.

Instead, they had shuttles bring everyone to the mountaintop venue as a complete surprise! The 180 degree view alone from the terraces of the estate were enough to delight every single person – even the two of us!

Victoria Schroeder executed the perfect event, Alex of Blush Botanicals crafted the heart-melting florals, and Quixotic Weddings captured the entire story on film. Talk about a dream team!

We began this dream wedding with Roman and Zlatka prepping to see one another for their romantic first look…
