Romantic wedding invites

Nestled in the quaint town of Juilan, just a short drive from San Diego rests Sacred Mountain’s private ranch and retreat center. When Savannah and Mitch pictured their dream wedding they wanted a place that encapsulated all of the things they love like mountains, family gatherings, delicious food and picturesque landscapes. The first time they stepped foot on Sacred Mountain they were in love and knew it was the perfect venue for their big day.

The crisp mountain air set the scene for a relaxing morning as Savannah and Mitch prepped to say their “I do’s.” The venue even came with this amazing bust to showcase the wedding dress. Savannah fell in love with the intricate details and blush under tones of this BHLDN dress and I mean, come on, how could you not!

One of the best parts of Sacred Mountain is their retreat center that is able to house immediate family and bridal parties for the weekend. This was great for Savannah and Mitch since most of their family and friends were coming in from out of town. They loved being able to have the rehearsal dinner at the retreat center and then all stay together for the evening!

There’s something really special about waking up in the same house as all of your favorite people on your wedding day and Sav’s girls were the picture of perfection in these blush dresses that morning!

I love it when the guys have fun socks, aren’t these ones amazing?

Mitch and Savannah opted to forego a first look but still wanted a few minutes together before the ceremony and this garden terrace gate made for the perfect spot!

I cannot say enough about these beautiful blush bouquets that Laura from Bluebell Florals put together, aren’t they romantic?

Savannah and Mitch built this amazing backdrop for their wedding, I love the floral accents arranged throughout the mountain made of triangles!!

One of my favorite parts about Sacred Mountain Julian is this picturesque ceremony site’s mountain backdrop. It was absolutely breath-taking to witness their vows overlooking the world.

Heather from Amorology designed and planned their big day, you can see her craftsmanship, love and creativity in every little detail!

The mix of marble, copper and whites was a dream on the tables. The Hostess Haven provided the an incredible tablescape for their big day!

Savannah and Mitch love dessert and wanted to showcase what Julian is famous for…pies!

These stone top tables by Farm Tables and More were a dream!!!!!

Something I love about Savannah is that she dances through life, she always has. As a trained ballerina everything she does exudes creativity and grace. I knew the man she married would join in her dance and twirl her through life.

The day ended with an epic sunset, dancing late into the night, lots and lots of pie and a cup of warm cider. It couldn’t have been more perfect for these two.
