Today’s real wedding is taking us to warmer and tropical places. Sam and Pat married in August at the San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas, California. I’m from NY and Patrick is from FL so we treated our wedding as a destination wedding,” real bride Sam explained. “We had lounge seating, a food truck, and ice cream cart. Oh and mullet wigs to kick off the dance party and a double decker British bus to take us to our afterparty.”

Sam looked absolutely stunning in our Devon gown. She purchased from Lovely Bride in New York. “I wanted a simple and classic silhouette. Devon is chic and timeless,” she said. We are so excited to share these photos with you! Enjoy!
