Located in San Deigo, California is the hip and happening neighborhood of North Park filled with culture, art, entertainment and some of the best restaurants in the city. Amongst the many ahead-of-the-trend saloons and local fooderys is hidden gem, Jaynes Gastro Pub, a casual yet chic bar & eatery serving modern British pub fare & drinks. Jayne's is naturally just one of those spots that you dream of having a gathering at. With a twinkle light patio and urban vibe anything is possible. Well, for Krista and Daniel their dream came true. 

They had been going on dates to Jaynes Gastro Pub for years before deciding to ask permission to use the space for their wedding. Krista and Daniel’s wedding was the first ever at the Pub. The brick flooring, market lights, and tall hedges made this back patio an ideal space for their intimate 75 guest wedding. Not only was there sentimental value in the space but it fit Krista's effortlessly romantic southwestern vision like a glove. We teamed up with wedding photographer, Brogen Jessup to give us the inside scoop on the day, details and newest venue to the San Diego area.

In Los Angeles, the coolest spots can be found anywhere. Now, that’s not necessarily suggesting that each and every diner and dive bar in the City of Angels is of equally awesome merit, though it honestly feels that way on some blocks. Instead, it’s more a curious case of finding your favorite escape in anything from an abandoned warehouse to a mysterious mansion to a parking lot.

So it doesn’t seem too surprising — if you’re from California anyway — that a spectacular farm-to-table experience awaits you in a magical alleyway tucked on the eastern edge of Downtown Los Angeles. Indeed, in the very colorful Arts District, Sarkis Vartanian welcomes you to his enchanting urban oasis, The Daily Dose Cafe.

Tuscan villa weddings never cease to inspire. There’s something so magical about that fragrant Italian air, the rich history, and the gorgeous architecture. And Italians seem to host weddings with such an air of simplicity, like it’s no big deal to host a dinner party for fifty or sixty people outdoors, under the clear Tuscan sky. Sara and Patrick’s wedding at Villa Catureglio has us all in total fantasy land over here, what with the Chestnut hunt in the mountains, vineyard tours, and the gorgeous meals they celebrated with.

Sara and Patrick recently filled us in on all the details of their wedding planning from afar. They worked with the creative and brilliant duo, Elyse and Katie, at BW Theory in Austin to make all their great ideas into a reality.
