Modern Sophistication: Christian + Robb's Wedding in San Diego

Getting married on your birthday isn’t something we hear of everyday, but Robb said marrying Christian was the best birthday gift he ever received. The lovely couple married in San Diego at the oh-so-romantic Balboa Park Art Museum. Remember it from this real wedding?

The beautiful invitations were made by Bella Figura, Letterpress, calligraphy by Wendy Ware Designer, and it perfectly reflected the sophisticated theme Robb and Christian wanted.

The day was full of modern flair and refined sophistication. Wedding planner Thomas Bui from Thomas Bui Lifestyle went above and beyond to create an elegant and magical experience for the couple and their guests.

The ceremony took place in the Art Museum’s Sculpture Garden with the iconic Museum of Man Dome & Tower as the backdrop.  The beautiful moments were captured by Joseph Matthew Photography.

After the ceremony, guests were then invited into the museum’s open-air courtyard for dinner and dancing with sparkling chandeliers over head and elegant flowing white draping enhanced the space.

Feast tables surrounded the dance floor and were decked with candles, white peonies, white roses, green cymbidium orchids and succulents. The dance floor was center stage and the scene of much action including the couples first dance, toasts, and lots and lots of dancing to the live tunes of local San Diego band Siren’s Crush. As the reception came to an end, the party didn’t stop but instead moved inside San Diego’s Art Museum for an after party with late night snacks, cocktails and a DJ spinning tunes to keep everyone on their feet.
