Estancia La Jolla Wedding | Meredith & Nick

​Meredith and Nick’s wedding at Estancia in La Jolla, California, was absolutely breathtaking!  It was a  perfect day for a spring wedding, and I mean perfect! On the day-of, I kept getting text messages from friends saying “I hope you have a wedding today, because it’s gorgeous out!”

Estancia had always been a special and nostalgic place for Meredith and her family ~ She and her family often had dinners there and spa days there, so the idea of having the most-special-day-of-their-lives at Estancia felt perfect. 

In Meredith’s words… her inspiration for the decor and ambience:
“The ambiance of the hotel was a huge plus, and we love the ranch-inspired architecture and Haciena-feel. The atmosphere worked super well with the decor and vintage furniture that we brought in, and I think it made our guests feel at home too. We used mis-matched antique chairs for the ceremony (from Adore Folklore), which created a unique-look and made for great photos! Being in southern California, and a huge succulent-lover, the bouquet was originally inspired by blue agave but it turned into something much more than just succulents. When I saw Proteas, I knew they needed a place in the flower arrangements too! Luckily, both of those flowers, olive branch, eucalyptus, plus garden roses and more worked beautifully together.”
​Meredith and Nick met {Meredith’s junior year of college} while living in Mission Beach. They were next door neighbors! It didn’t take long for these two to connect and before you knew it, they were spending dates at the beach where Nick taught her how to surf.

They fell in love all while going to Taco Tuesdays, movies, dinners, surfing many waves in the ocean and many, many incredible conversations.  They call La Jolla their permanent residence now and just spent their honeymoon on the Big Island Of Hawaii!

Meredith and Nick, I know the wedding-gods were shining upon me when we met, and our instant connection only grew from there!
I am so honored & blessed to have been your wedding photographer ~ I loved capturing your pure joy and love on your wedding day.  Wishing you all the best as you continue to embark on more Taco Tuesdays, surf dates, and tons of movies together!  Love, Patty xo

Meredith Keller - Thank you so much for blogging our wedding, amazing Patty! These photos are to die for and we will cherish them forever and ever! We were honored to have you capture our day and so very, very lucky for every vendor that helped make the day SO special. Being a hobbyist photographer myself, selecting a person to photograph the wedding was a big deal to me, but CLEARLY this was one of the best choices we made all 9 months of preparation (besides marrying each other, ya know). Thank you so much to everyone who made our day awesome, and to Patty for capturing it perfectly. Love Love Love!!!

All you need is love,
Meredith and Nick
