After some chilly and rainy weather over the weekend, the skies cleared up for Brittney & Dylan’s beautiful Carlsbad wedding at South Ponto Beach! As everyone enjoyed an intimate dinner reception at Vigilucci’s, they had a view of a gorgeous sunset! Here are a few sneak peeks from their incredible day!

Remember a couple weeks ago when I shared a sneak peek of the bride and groom that looked like they should be on top of a cake? That was our couple Karen & Nathan, and their wedding at Paradise Point Resort was a beautiful celebration of love and family! It took place in a gorgeous garden setting by the water, with seagulls flying over and the breezes blowing in from the bay! The ceremony was sweet and full of smiles and laughter. If we’ve learned anything from being around Karen & Nathan, it’s that they always have a good time together! You can tell that they are not only in love with each other, but they are also best friends!

The reception was kicked off by a cocktail hour on the water. Everyone had fun jumping into the photobooth from The Fotobox! Inside the reception, guests enjoyed a huge candy buffet and dancing their feet off to music played by Sound Prodigy! We had such a great time celebrating such an amazing couple! Congratulations Karen & Nathan! : )

We are so excited to share more photos from Genevieve & Jim’s wedding at the Hotel del Coronado earlier this month! It was such a beautiful and heartwarming event, full of friends and family, smiles and happy tears! There were also some very cool moments, like a plane flying by before the ceremony with a banner congratulating Genevieve & Jim. Matt went on the roof of the hotel to get an aerial shot of the ceremony. Cocktail hour began with Genevieve sabering a bottle of champagne. The newlyweds cut the cake with a sword. Now that I think about it, I’m surprised there wasn’t a trapeze act somewhere in there. It was a pretty adventurous day!

The reception was equally as emotional and exciting as the first half of the day! The entryway was lined with candles, and everyone enjoyed a beautiful dinner by candlelight. There were tender speeches (some that couldn’t even be finished because of all the joyful tears). Sweet and memorable dances. Then the music changed and everyone partied the night away! It was such an honor to be there to celebrate the marriage of two such wonderful people! Congratulations G & Jim! : )

We had a blast last weekend enjoying the beautiful Cherry Blossom Festival, but the highlight of our trip was meeting up with Meagan & Steven and their sweet pups Lola and Dodge for their engagement photos in Washington DC! There was an abundance of blossoms and cuteness going on! Here’s a little preview!

It was a gorgeous day in San Diego yesterday, and the perfect day for Karen & Nathan’s wedding at Paradise Point Resort & Spa! As many of their friends and family traveled from the east coast to join in their celebration of love, they were we given a proper San Diego welcome with blue skies and 70 degree weather! Karen looked gorgeous in a ruffle gown and sparkle from head to toe while Nathan looked incredible in his uniform! I said they looked like they should be on top of a cake, and they said, “We are!!” They had a custom cake topper made with what they were wearing! Too cute!

These lovebirds are getting ready to go on a long honeymoon, so I hope you don’t mind that there are a few extra photos in this sneak peek! I wanted them to have a few photos to help them remember their beautiful wedding day while they are relaxing and enjoying the beginning of wedded bliss! Congratulations Karen & Nathan, and have a wonderful time on your trip! : )

We had an incredible time last night with Genevieve & Jim, celebrating their wedding at the Hotel del Coronado! It was such a perfect day that it almost seems like we dreamed it, but the love between these two is undeniably real. Can’t wait to share all the stunning details, but first here’s a sneak peek from their beautiful wedding day!

It was so nice to spend time with Gerilyn & Thomas on their recent visit to San Diego! They were in town finalizing some details of their San Diego destination wedding, but it was extra special because they’ve been making their plans from opposite sides of the country also! Maybe it’s all that time apart that made this day extra special, but they were so cute as they cuddled up together. Thomas showered his sweetheart with little kisses and Gerilyn giggled and showed that shy but oh-so-sweet smile of hers! We can’t wait for their wedding this summer because we just can’t get enough of this adorable couple! Based on all the likes that their sneak peek got, I’m guessing you all can’t get enough, either! I’m excited to say that we have even more photos to share from their San Diego engagement session, which included the famous Gaslamp District downtown and one of the most stunning parts of the San Diego coast, the beautiful area of Sunset Cliffs!
