It’s Michelle and Rafi’s Wedding Day!!!

4 Sep

It’s the weekend of Michelles!  Two of our brides from this weekend share the name and both are celebrating their weddings on Mission Bay, but their weddings are quite different.

Today’s celebration is a traditional Jewish ceremony on the sand.  Complete with a hora, ketubah and breaking of the glass, Amy and Lindsay can’t wait to help this very special couple tie the knot. A very big thank you to our studio mate – Darryn St. John Photography for sharing their fabulous engagement photos.


It’s Teri and Pete’s Wedding Day!!!

11 Jul

Sometimes we work with our couples closely via phone and email.  One of the things we love about San Diego is that couples from near and far choose America’s Finest City to celebrate their wedding.  A few weeks ago we got a call from a bride, Teri, who lives out of town. She found us through her photographer and was looking for day-of coordination for her wedding.  When she told us her wedding day, July 11 (a Monday), we instantly knew she was a perfect fit for us.  We worked closely over the past few weeks via phone and email to iron out all the final details and were so excited to meet her in person this past Friday.

Teri and her fiance Pete met on July 11th at the river and wanted that to be their wedding anniversary.  It didn’t matter to them that it was unconventional, in fact, we think that is so them.  He proposed one year ago, back at the river, where he wrote out the words “Will you row with me through the river of life?” and today, they will be married in the heart of Balboa Park.  We cannot wait to help them celebrate their wedding this afternoon, especially with an amazing team of vendors.

A special thank you and YOU ROCK goes out to Chana and Don who shot their engagement shoot on Friday, edited their photos on Saturday and had enlarged prints ready for the wedding today!


It’s Jennifer and Jeff’s Wedding Day!!!

9 Jul







Jennifer and Jeff met at work.  Both taught at the same school and between teaching kids to dance and grading papers, fell in love.  Three years later, here we are, on their wedding day.  Jeff proposed in Hawaii on a kayaking trip and the couple in bringing the beachy romance of their engagement into their wedding.


Plumerias that they grew in their own home will adorn the ceremony site and warm guava will highlight the outdoor deck on Breakers Beach in Coronado, where guests will watch the sunset over the Pacific as Jennifer and Jeff dance together for the first time as man and wife.


Thank you Jennifer and Jeff for including us in your wedding and a special thank you to our friend Stewart from Stewart Bertrand Photography for sharing these images from their engagement shoot.

It’s Annie and Demetrio’s Wedding Day!!!

9 Jul

Annie and Demetrio are two of the sweetest people we have had the pleasure of working with.  When we initially met this couple, they had a vision of a country style wedding in Valley Center.  Over the past year, we have worked together to create a wedding that is extremely personal and ties in cultural and family traditions.  From farmers market flowers to whoopie pies from Annie’s native east coast, their wedding is sure to have guests leaving saying WOW!  A special thanks to de la cruz photography for sharing these great pictures from their engagement shoot with us!

An early congratulations to Annie and Demetrio!  We can’t wait to share in your special day!!!

It’s Emily and Ricardo’s Wedding Day!!!

18 Jun

Emily and Ricardo are about as cute of a couple as can be.  He’s from Brazil, she’s from California and today, in the walled garden at San Diego Botanic Garden they will be married.  The couple will use the natural beauty of the gardens paired with a very fun upscale BBQ theme to create an “only in San Diego” affair for their guests, many who have traveled from Rio to celebrate this special occasion.  Many, many congratulations to Emily and Ricardo!!!!

A special thank you to Photography by Anjuli for sharing their engagement photos.

It’s Amy and Brian’s Wedding Day!!!

4 Jun

Amy and Brian are getting married today, at the intimate and beautiful Thursday Club in Point Loma. Overlooking the water, this amazing couple will exchange vows followed by a quintessentially San Diego reception with family and friends.  Since most of their guests are from out-of-town, we’ve worked with the couple to incorporate elements of San Diego that they love to personalize their wedding.  From escorting their guests to the venue in an Old Town Trolley to serving local craft beers this celebration is going to be fabulous.

We are in love with the vendors we get to work with on this wedding too! Ceremonies by Bethel will be marrying them, Photos by Chana and Don will be capturing the day, Coast Catering will be serving delectable delights, Concepts Event Design and Classic Party Rentals will make the space pop, Sumi’s Oven is creating cakes for each table, Blush Botanicals is providing beautiful flowers, Pete Goslow will be serenading the crowd and AC Makeup will be highlighting the beauty of the bridal party.  And of course, the ladies of First Comes Love will be there to bring everything together.

CONGRATULATIONS AMY AND BRIAN and thank you for including us in your big day!

A special thank you to Photos by Chana and Don for sharing their engagement pictures.

It’s Zena and Dave’s Wedding Day!!!

14 May

Zena and Dave met nearly four years ago through friends. Dave + Zena + Dave and Busters = a perfect match.  She is Palestinian, he is Swedish and Norweigan and together, they will fuse Jordanian and American traditions for a bicultural wedding this evening at Bahia.  The couple, who works together, will celebrate with a zaffe, a procession of drummers, dancers and singers.  We can’t wait to share all of the fun details but in the meantime, thanks to Darryn St. John Photography for giving us a peek at their engagement photos.
