With the San Diego Bay in the background, Brooke looks absolutely beautiful in this “Bella” gown by Hayley Paige. Shown in ivory, this sweetheart neckline, embroidered lace, fit to flare dress includes a cut out in the back of the gown.  There are lace and flower appliqués added to the silk organza skirt giving this an exquisite look. This dress retails at $2,750 at The White Flower Bridal Boutique. Her divine bouquet was created by Artistic Florals.

We love the bold contrast between this modern bridge and this sensational gown by Eve of Milady. The sheer beaded bodice with a sweetheart neckline and drop-waist ball gown with silk satin skirt will be sure to impress. This dress retails at $3,700 at The White Flower Bridal Boutique. She holds a yellow calla lily bouquet designed by White Wedding Day Events.

Excited for her big moment, Geraldine looks magnificent in this Martina Liana, Parisian, silk chiffon and French tulle ball gown. It is the little details such as the textured skirt and crystal buttons that makes this gown a true sensation. This dress retails at $2,300 at The White Flower Bridal Boutique. To complete her look, this bride has a stylish up-do, crystal necklace, and carries a simple, yet elegant bouquet created by White Wedding Day Events.

Waiting for her grand entrance, Brooke shines in an ivory, fully beaded Swarovski crystal bodice with a tie natural waist by Martina Liana. This dress is complete with an A-line skirt with Parisian silk chiffon ruffles and flowers retailing at $3,200 at The White Flower Bridal Boutique. Here she chose to accessorize with silver, crystal embellished sandals and an ivory flower hair clip at the base of her up-do, designed by Sandra Nicole Designs. She carries a unique bouquet from Embellishmint Floral and Event Design Studio.

Brooke looks dazzling in this Hayley Paige “Harper” wedding gown. This ivory, strapless, Swiss-dot, fit to flare gown is complete with a ruched bodice with flower detailing at the waist. This gown retails at $2,310 at The White Flower Bridal Boutique.  To glamorize her bridal look, she chose to wear a classic up-do with a large white silk flower and a crystal bracelet both from Sandra Nicole Designs. Her exquisite white hydrangeas and peony bouquet is from Artistic Florals.

Geraldine sparkles on her big day in an ivory Eve of Milady wedding gown. This sweetheart, strapless, drop-waist ball gown includes a beaded flower bodice and full tulle shirt with a chapel train as well as a Swarovski crystal belt. This divine gown retails at $2,900 at The White Flower Bridal Boutique. To finalize her wedding day look, she accessorizes with a crystal and pearl headband and a crystal bracelet.

Dressed in a elegant plunging neck ball gown, Geraldine has a secret, her gown has hidden pockets, designed by elyseREUBEN Couture, priced at $2,100. She accessorized her modern look with a diamond sash by Chloe and Paige and stunning earrings by Sandra Nicole. Her Artistic Florals designed hand-tied bouquet made with orange French tulips and bear grass finishes the look.

Who says you have to wear white? Geraldine looks stunning in this gorgeous black and white gown, designed by elyseREUBEN Couture. Her jewelry is from Sandra Nicole Designs. The beautiful bouquet is by Artistic Florals.

Love definitely conquered distance for this couple that met in college and then were separated for three years as Rebecca finished law school. Rebecca and Paul got engaged in the same spot where his grandfather proposed in Germany during the time of World War II. After finishing law school and moving to San Diego, Rebecca planned her gorgeous and vibrant outdoor wedding with her beloved future husband.
