Long sleeve bridal gown with deep neckline inspiration | L'Auberge Del Mar wedding

Heather and Justin, the sweetest couple, had the most beautiful and intimate San Diego wedding! It was held at the L’Auberge, a luxury resort located in the heart of Del Mar. The venue overlooks the Pacific Ocean from one of Southern California’s most scenic coastal villages. That said, I was thrilled when I heard they chose this award-winning resort for their wedding as I know there will be tons of picturesque spaces! Check out some of my favorites from their big day!

L’Auberge Del Mar Wedding With Simply Gorgeous Events

The ceremony and reception took place on the Pacific Terrace at L’Auberge, and it had the most breathtaking view. It was an intimate ceremony that transformed into a beautiful evening space for the reception. I’d also like to mention that Kayla of Simply Gorgeous Events planned their wedding beautifully! She crafted a classic event with a hint of rich emerald and crisp black. Moreover, The team at To Be Designed arranged the most elegant white florals with lush greenery. Though one decor really struck me, it was the horseshoe seating chart. Heather is a horse lover, so they used horseshoes to creatively incorporate that into the event!

Along with the theme, Justin wore a stunning open button emerald green suit that matched his eyes. On the other hand, Heather wore the most beautiful long sleeve backless slit gown that made her glow even more. She paired it with the loveliest suede emerald green stilettos by Jimmy Choo.

As the sun started to set, we had the loveliest candlelit al fresco dinner with the most beautiful view. The tables set with hints of emerald and black, props to Kayla of Simply Gorgeous Event for creating such a lovely evening space! To top it all off, we snuck out to the beach at sunset, and it was so much fun!
