As get ready to celebrate Dia de los Muertos this weekend, I thought it was the perfect time to share Jennifer & Kevin’s gorgeous wedding at the Cosmopolitan Hotel & Restaurant in Old Town San Diego! This beautiful hotel dates back to 1827 and is full of history and charm – the perfect place for a wedding! Jen & Kevin’s wedding was both elegant and festive! The courtyard was decorated with beautiful linens, milk glass, and each table had a unique floral arrangement. The colors were so enchanting – lots of greenery with pops of vibrant pink. The wedding cake was topped with the phrase “Love Grows Here,” and during the ceremony Jen & Kevin watered a tree together. It was such an endearing moment and a beautiful symbol of unity! The atmosphere was lively and fun, as family and friends celebrated at a brunch reception with delicious Mexican dishes and desserts and (one of my favorite features) a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar! Um, yeah… how much are you wishing that you were at their wedding right now??!! It was a blast! I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that Jen & Kevin have a lot of fun together. They are so happy together and so smitten with each other! We’re pretty smitten with them, too! They are such an adorable couple, and we are so excited to share more of their lovely wedding photos with you!

In September, we traveled to New York for Carolyn & Cristofer’s beautiful wedding at the Surf Club on the Sound in New Rochelle. It was such a heartfelt day with laughter and happy tears. Our exquisite bride Carolyn did two first looks. First, she shared a first look with her father at the top of a grand staircase, presenting him with a sweet handkerchief to say how much he means to her. Then she walked down the staircase to see the other man who means the most in her life, her very-soon-to-be husband Cris.

Friends and family gathered outside to witness Carolyn & Cris saying “I do” with a breathtaking view of the sound behind them. They were so excited that the day was finally here that they couldn’t quite get the words out. There were a couple moments that caused them both to stop and just laugh. I love when a wedding doesn’t stick to the script and has candid moments like this. These are some of my favorite images from their ceremony.

That evening, everyone enjoyed a gorgeous reception with tons of dancing! I think it’s safe to say everyone had a great time, and these two deserved to have such a beautiful wedding to begin their lives together! Congratulations Carolyn & Cris!
