Franciscan Gardens Wedding bride and groom kissing

Jackie and Matt’s elegant wedding at Franciscan Gardens at San Juan Capistrano this past summer was so beautiful and intimate.
The sage green and gold trend is something that I am LOVING for weddings! It displays a simple, but enchanted look to any wedding day.

Jackie incorporated pops of color in her wedding shoes which were STUNNING!
