We loved this colorful Spanish inspired shoot styled by Leilani Weddings. I mean, what’s not to love? From the bold colors, to the Villa Del Sol historic courtyard, and the adorable alpacas! Everything worked so perfectly together to give it an old Spanish feel. We loved all the elements that were incorporated to make this shoot an amazing one.

Villa Del Sol is one of my favorite venues. It offers some of the dreamiest light against all the greenery. It feels like you are entering an oasis the minute you step into the courtyard. The fountain brings so much serenity, along with the streaming lights, to set the ambiance and the breeze that comes through. One of our favorite backdrops is the historic California sign painted at the top of Villa Del Sol’s balcony. 

When envisioning the design for this shoot, we were deeply inspired by the Spanish flare and vintage feel of Villa Del Sol, truly a hidden gem in the heart of Fullerton, CA. We wanted to create a Spanish-themed styled shoot with a romantic twist that evoked emotion and made you feel as if you were transported to an entirely different country. We used the venue’s lush greenery as the framework with copper details and bright florals to complete the romantic mood.Our models had the best time drinking champagne out of vintage coupes and lounging on the intricate balcony that wraps around the entire venue. The extravagant flower crown and brightly colored lip on the bride coupled with the groom’s crisp casual look was paired perfectly with two alpacas (of course, with flower necklaces to match!) to transport you to a Spanish paradise.

[A few] of our favorite elements? For starters, the venue, Villa del Sol, couldn’t be more picturesque or perfect for the theme. Its grand courtyard exudes that old Spanish feel the designers at Leilani Weddings were going for, and we love all the lush greenery! Modern copper chairs and a stunning Tara Lauren gown continue to send us over the edge, but it is the combination of all these that makes this shoot extra special! We know you’ll love the Spanish wedding inspiration as much as we do…
