Justin & Fatima at Ethereal Open Air Resort
Let us start with Fatima. Oh Fatima. With a name like that, you know she's going to be special, and special she was! We were honored to be referred to Fatima through a friend from our church. Justin & Fatima planned their whole wedding from San Francisco to have a destination wedding locally here in San Diego. From our first initial meeting with the couple, we knew this was going to be a beautiful, and elegant wedding. Fatima's loud and quirky personality paired with Justin's more- reserved, but witty personality made for such an incredible dynamic that really came across well on film.
When we first stepped onto the grounds of the venue, we immediately were at peace. Ethereal Open Air Resort is tucked away amongst so many trees, you'd miss it if you drove by. The rustic decor and earthy design of the venue, really made the thematic visuals of this wedding pop. One of our favorite moments through out the day was the separated time they had for their first look. On the property rests an older rustic barn that was perfect for showing off Fatima's dress. The duo had an extended moment while seeing each other for the first time. The natural light coming in through the opening of the barn doors made it exceptional for a mini romantic session. Dive in, and enjoy this roller coaster of adventure and emotion!
