Lauren and Steve eloped last year.  Just like so many of our grooms, he is in the military and was deployed to serve our country.  (Thank you Steve!!!)  The couple always wanted a larger celebration of their love with family and friends so today, they will come together and share their love in Point Loma with First Comes Love’s Jenn helping to bring everything together. We are so honored to be a part of this very special day, especially for a couple who has sacrificed so much to make our lives safe.

LeeAnn and Raymund hold a very special place in our hearts!  We started working with this couple several months ago to plan their 300 guest wedding and fell in love with them and their beautiful daughter! Not only is this couple the sweetest ever, they love each other so much!  Having been together for 10 years, this day is one they have been dreaming of for years.  Today, we will get 55 people down the aisle (13 bridesmaids, 13 groomsmen, 8 flower girls, the bride, groom, officiant and 18 sponsors and parents) and help them throw one heck of a party!

Many, many congratulations LeeAnn and Raymund!!!  We wish you a lifetime of happiness!!!

It’s Lindsay and James’ Wedding Day!!!

17 Sep

Lindsay and James are such a cute, fun-loving couple and we are so excited to have the opportunity to work with them to make their dream wedding a reality. Their venue is one that is close to our hearts – Prado Balboa Park and they have some amazing vendors, who we know will create a very special day for the couple.

Our happy couple met through friends at USD six years ago and when James was ready to propose, he knew he had to do something special.  So instead of simply asking for her hand in marriage, James sent Lindsay on a scavenger hunt across San Diego to give her clues that led to the big question.  So from Lindsay’s favorite frozen yogurt shop t0 USD, James eventually led Lindsay to Fiesta Island where as the fireworks created a stunning backdrop, he got on one knee, opened a little box and professed his love.  She said yes and today they will get married amongst a beautiful garden backdrop.

A special thank you to Lisa of Elle G Photography for sharing their engagement pictures and many, many congratulations to Lindsay and James!!!

It’s Lindsay and Chris’ Wedding Day!

10 Sep

Today, Jenn is up at Villa de Flores in Rancho Santa Fe, celebrating our latest couple, Lindsay and Chris.  The couple, who we have been helping plan from New York, is excited to tie the knot with family and friends on such a perfect day to get married – 9.10.11!

They got engaged on a fun road trip on the East Coast.  Last June, Chris suggested a spontaneous getaway to Maine. He was unusually eager to take charge of planning the entire trip immediately, and Lindsay was more than happy to go along with it. With lots of daytrips on the schedule, the first stop was Kennebunkport. After walking through the seaside town, Chris suggested a drive along the water to see the rocky coastline and the old estates. They pulled over and walked out on the rocks, where they found a rustic bench overlooking the water. Chris got down on one knee, asked Lindsay to marry him, and she said YES!

CONGRATULATIONS Lindsay and Chris!!!  Thank you so much for letting First Comes Love be a part of your special day!

It’s Heather and Ken’s Wedding Day!!!

10 Sep

This morning, we have the honor of welcoming Heather and Ken into marital bliss.  This super cool couple is right up our alley.  The bride, who has been planning a beach inspired affair, has been an absolute joy to work with and last night when we met the groom for the first time at the rehearsal, it became apparent why they are so perfect together.  They are such a fun couple and we can’t wait to celebrate their lunch time reception at Bali Hai today with some pretty amazing vendors!

CONGRATULATIONS HEATHER AND KEN!!!! We wish you a lifetime of happiness together!  A special thank you to 8Twenty8 Studios for sharing their engagement photos with us.

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.
