Ethereal Open Air Resort Wedding | San Diego | Kelsey + Zack | Joelle Julian Photography

When I first moved to San Diego, my good friend from high school, Amanda, showed me the Instagram account of a friend she went to college with that also lived in San Diego. She thought maybe we could be friends. I was instantly curious about this girl that appeared to be a real life mermaid (those that know Kelsey, know exactly what I’m talking about) and knew I needed to befriend her!
So I’m new to San Diego and trying to build up my business in this new state. I wanted to do a photoshoot with a super rad couple that would completely fit my style. I thought of this Instagram mermaid girl and decided to reach out to Kelsey and ask if her and her boyfriend would be willing to do a photoshoot with me. We did, it was amazing and our friendship was born! Fast forward FOUR years and I’m now shooting their WEDDING DAY!

Their day was completely relaxed and chill starting with Kelsey and her girls having their hair and makeup done at an Airbnb by the ocean.

We took photos in the wilderness, perfectly matching Kelsey and Zach’s bohemian and adventurous style. Kelsey looked like an absolute VISION in her two piece dress and converse kicks! She didn’t want to wear an elaborate dress, rather wanting to be comfortable and feel like herself. She nailed it.
Zach of course looked incredibly handsome as well in his casual pants and vest.

The real star of the show was their dog, Moose. He tagged along the whole day and I’m sure was so happy to see his parents become husband and wife.

Kelsey and Zach were married at Ethereal Open Air Resort in beautiful southern California. Ethereal is a super cool lush venue with endless photo opportunities that we took full advantage of.
