Cheyenne + Christian - a fairytale romantic wedding at Mount Woodson Castle, San Diego, CA

June 06, 2017  •  10 Comments

Their romance was the stuff dreams are made of, and their fairytale wedding at Mount Woodson Castle in San Diego, CA, a real dream come true!

Cheyenne and Christian first met when Cheyenne was just 17 years old  - and you know what they say about young love - It's a flame; very pretty, often hot. So when Christian went up to Santa Barbara for college, Cheyenne made the 3+ hour drive north to visit him frequently, determined not to let their love's flame go out. Over the years it became more and more apparent that these two truly were made for each other, not just star-crossed young lovers.  And after a 2 year engagement, they finally took their vows with promises of forever in a stone-walled castle fit for a real life Princess. 

Cheyenne was just about the prettiest bride you ever laid eyes on, and Christian couldn't keep his eyes off her all day. And who could blame him? With her dark locks swept up under a sparkling flower tiara, and her whitest white princess gown with lovely beading and tulle layers, Cheyenne was beyond beautiful. She was breathtaking. 

And their wedding was every bit of classic elegance that you might expect for a fairytale castle theme. With groomsmen and bridesmaids in classic black, pure white flowers with mixed silver and copper accents throughout, dimly lit candles, and romantic tunes, every last detail spelled d-r-e-a-m.  Even down to their Grand Exit, when a white vintage Packard Classic car swept them off on their very own "happily ever after".
