Doris and Joe met rock climbing and bonded over their shared love of travel and extreme sports. When it came to the adventure of marriage, they chose the breathtaking San Ysidro Ranch for an elegantly rustic garden wedding with a Parisian inspired theme, tying the knot in front of a small gathering of family and friends. Doris and Joe had actually almost booked a large reception in San Fransisco when they fell in love with San Ysidro Ranch, and deciding that an intimate affair was what they really wanted.
Their beautiful wedding was featured in Magnolia Rouge Magazine as well as the Magnolia Rouge blog.
Doris says, “I always knew I wanted a wedding dress that was light and airy – preferably a combination of chiffon and lace. Something classic and romantic that would be beautiful for a garden wedding. I went to three bridal salons within a 48 hour period and found ‘the one’ at Jinza Couture Boutique. It was actually originally a very simple spaghetti strap dress, but Jinza had the same vision as I, and she practically created the dress from scratch for me.”
