I have been OBSESSING over Megan and Jonathan’s Ethereal Gardens wedding FOREVER. This incredible wedding day seriously came straight out of my DREAMS. This venue has quickly become one of my FAVORITE venues in California. Every single moment from this bohemian, romantic wedding day blew me away. I am SO excited to share the photos with you, and tell you even more about this unforgettable Ethereal Gardens wedding day.
I’ve know Megan and Jonathan for quite some time now, and they are no strangers to my camera. I know one thing for sure about Megan… girl has AMAZING taste. When I found out she was engaged, I knew for a fact that her wedding day was going to be breathtaking. When I found out it was taking place at Ethereal Gardens, I knew I would literally never recover.
Why I Love This Venue!
Ethereal Garden’s in San Diego California has genuinely become one of my top picks for wedding day venues. Nestled in the rolling hills of Escondido, this venue effortlessly combines romantic and natural elegance. This venue is a gorgeous spot, with lots of natural, blooming photo opts, allowing you to be really creative with your vision. This venue features a huge, wide-open meadow, brick and timber chapel, a lush open vine greenhouse, a rustic orchard barn, dreamy twinkling lights, and more…the sky’s the limit. Megan and Jonathan really leaned into the natural elegance and romance, while incorporating lots of their own bohemian touches. I could not have IMAGINED better venue for these two lovers. Every single detail fell perfectly into place, and I was SO inspired while editing.
Megan and Jonathan’s Wedding Day!
Megan and Jonathan both spent the morning with their friends, and this bridal party was SO fun! I couldn’t get enough of Megans bridesmaids blush, pink robes especially when paired with her bridal robe. Megan had the cutest first look with her bridesmaids, and I love when brides opt for that! First looks are always SO special, and I love the look on Megan’s bridesmaids faces when they see her. Megan’s dress tied in with her entire wedding day vision flawlessly! I was totally obsessed with the combination of lace and beading, and her crazy long train.
Ethereal Garden’s outdoor garden wedding ceremony left me speechless. There was so much incredible, natural beauty surrounding the altar. I love how Megan chose to incorporate lots of simplistic, modern and bohemian details. Megan and Jonathans ceremony was romantic and sentimental to say the least. These two share such a sweet love, and it felt so surreal to finally be watching them promise forever! During the ceremony, they incorporated a unity candle lighting. This detail was such a simple way to add a really memorable touch to their ceremony, and it was downright adorable!
I’m still drooling over Megan and Jonathans romantics. Like, come on. They both looked FLAWLESS. It was such a beautiful day in California, and I was obsessed with the way the setting sun was glowing on these lovers. Having them in front of my camera is always a good time, and this day was the best of all. The reception space shared a similar vibe with their ceremony, and was decked out in romantic, lush details. The tables-capes felt super earthy and bohemian, and I love how they turned out!
Every single person found themselves on the dance floor as the sun went down, and this group knew how to party. I had so much fun dancing alongside Megan! I will never EVER forget this wedding day! These photos turned out better than I could have ever imagined, and I am so excited to share them with you!
