Katie + Ryan :: The Wood Shed

Katie + Ryan’s intimate destination wedding holds a special place in our hearts! Being from the East Coast, our couple knew a destination wedding was the right move since they both love to travel. San Diego is a sentimental location being that they fell in love with the ocean, deserts, mountains, food, and craft beer scene of the beautiful city. They wanted their guests to be able to experience the excitement of discovering and exploring a new city and spend quality time together just as San Diego meant to them!

The Wood Shed Venue, apart of Booze Brothers Brewing Company in San Diego, was the perfect wedding venue because it is modern, unique, and essentially houses the minimalistic and modern feel that inspired their wedding design. The beautiful multicolored wood walls, ware-house style atmosphere, and living plant walls were all unique elements that really made the space feel homey. Bonus: it’s also a craft brewery! The design was inspired by K+R’s travels to the Caribbean (their original designation wedding location!). We combined a natural minimalistic vibe with hints of deep ocean hues, fresh whites, tropical greenery, and metallic elements as an ode to the tropical atmosphere that they love while also keeping the vibe fresh. Rebecca Eichten Art + Design nailed the vision by creating this lively and modern design. Another really important aspect for our couple was the food! Their menu included a mix of their foodie favorites from past travel, such as lobster rolls, street-style tacos, churros, and a coffee bar! Since the guest count was an intimate gathering of 25, we incorporated family-style dining to enhance the cozy ambiance. Give us intimate parties any day - it’s our favorite kind to design! Katie + Ryan were ultimately the perfect NGE couple, and we still can’t believe how perfectly their design, vibe, and personalities just clicked with ours!
