It’s Ashley and Matt’s Wedding Day!!!

8 Oct

Ashley and Matt are getting married today at the Hilton Mission Bay!  With the water as their backdrop, they will say “I Do!” in front of 100 of their closest family and friends.  We have LOVED working with this super sweet couple to create their dream wedding, which includes a toes in the sand ceremony followed by a moonlit reception under the stars.  The bold color scheme of oranges and purples will pop in the outdoor setting.

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 Chiara and Scott’s Wedding Day!!!

20 Aug

We’re on our way to one of San Diego’s top venues, the Grand Del Mar to celebrate the union of Chiara and Scott.  This couple has touched our hearts.  Initially planning a wedding in Carlsbad, they were left in quite the predicament when their venue’s construction fell behind.  With one month before the wedding, we worked to move the venue, get the vendors up to speed on the new venue and communicate to guests the change.  But it all worked out flawlessly and today, the couple will tie the knot in a stunning sanctuary followed by an open air dinner (where guests will enjoy wine produced by the father of the bride – so cool!).  Then guests will move into the Capella Room for dancing.

Their engagement – Scott and Chiara took a trip to Kaua’i in the summer of 2010 to run a marathon. Chiara thought the race was to be the highlight but little did she know there was another reason Scott was so nervous.  At sunset, overlooking Hanalei Bay, Scott made a toast…which turned into a proposal…which turned into a YES!

We can’t wait to celebrate with this dynamic duo.  CONGRATULATIONS CHIARA AND SCOTT!!!  We wish you a lifetime of happiness together!

It’s Katy and Ben’s Wedding Day!!!

13 Aug

Sometimes, when you know, you know.  Our wedding for this evening is a super sweet couple Katy and Ben.  They came to us a few months ago, newly engaged and beaming about each other and how ready they were to be married.  Having been together for just under a year, the couple met in Washington DC.  He’s a Marine, she’s a lawyer and when duty called Ben to San Diego, he couldn’t bear the thought of moving without Katy.  But he didn’t want to move her out to the West Coast as his girlfriend, he wanted her to be be his side no matter where his service called him.  So he got down on one knee and asked Katy to marry him.

With just a few months to plan their big day, we created a wedding that breaks the traditional mold.  And what will happen tonight is exactly the vision the two had in mind.  An indoor ceremony, surrounding the couple in white and candlelight, followed by a lounge style reception washed in peacock colors.  Instead of a formal sit down dinner, the couple has brought in lounge furniture, sheer white draping and food stations (we can’t wait for the mac n’ cheese bar).

An early congratulations to the stunning couple.  We wish you many years of happy wedded bliss!!!

CONGRATULATIONS KATY AND BEN!!!!  A special thank you to Darryn St. John Photography for sharing their engagement photos!

It’s Adriana and Christian’s Wedding Day!!!

16 Jul

Adriana and Christian met through friends and today will exchange vows and be married with a full Catholic mass at St. Mary’s.  After, Lindsay will help them celebrate with dinner under the stars at Handlery followed by dancing in a draped and romantically lit ballroom. Congratulations Adriana and Christian!!!  We wish you a lifetime of happiness together!

Thanks to Sutography for sharing their fabulous downtown engagement session with us!

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 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!!!
