Rancho Bernardo Inn Wedding | Julie + AJ

There are few places in San Diego that are more romantic than the Rancho Bernardo Inn. They really know how to put together a fabulous wedding! I knew Julie + AJ’s wedding would be a HUGE party since they are both bartenders! We had so much fun together grabbing drinks at Herringbone La Jolla and taking their engagement photos all over the village.

Julie + AJ opted for a first touch instead of a first look, which was so emotional! They both agreed that their favorite moment of the day was seeing each other walking down the aisle. Julie said, “I thought I was gonna be an emotional wreck ugly crying down the aisle but the moment I stepped out I felt ready. I felt excitement like let’s do the damn thing! It was a moment I’ve been waiting for for so long. After that it was a breeze.” AJ said, “Not seeing her from the night before until that moment made it so much more special. After that is was dance party time!”

Rancho Bernardo Inn is known for their luxury feel and INCREDIBLE service! Having your wedding at RBI is an experience unlike any other. “The hospitality was unreal from the moment we stepped on property for our first tour of the venue to the day of our wedding. They had a bouquet waiting for me to walk around with during my tour to make me feel like a bride! I mean come on. How could you not die after that. “

Julie + AJ both had great advice for couples getting married. “Don’t stress on wedding day!! I know it’s hard not to but at that point things should be in play and ready to go so no stress or it will show in pictures and videos!!! Also to get a planner. Even if it’s just day of! It’s so so so important to have someone there running the show while you’re getting ready and relaxing.” I couldn’t agree with this more, and their planner Rachel kicked butt! AJ agreed, “Have fun and enjoy it! It only happens once and it goes by fast. Having a wedding planner is so important in letting you enjoy every moment of your special day. Also, don’t leave the dance floor!”
