Yesterday’s Wedding Fiesta here in Cardiff was so unbelievably fun! Mark and Jessie, and their entire family partied it up right on the sand in my home town. These two are always down for an adventure, from their travel around the world to their wedding day. They were up for anything! After getting ready at the cozy cute Cardiff by the Sea Lodge, we were able to shoot their intimate first look on the rooftop of the inn, with 180 degree views of the ocean as their backdrop. Jessie stunned in her gorgeous lace dress, and Mark’s jaw literally dropped when he saw his gorgeous bride.
After we left the Inn, we cruised the 101 into Encinitas and got some amazing shots with the classic red VW van they rented for the day. We made a pit stop at Swami’s and made sure to grab a few more shots with the van before we headed to their Seaside ceremony site. It was a blast! I especially loved that once we got to the ceremony everyone kicked off their sandals and was barefoot the rest of the evening. And my favorite part of this party, was the theme. Margaritas on the beach, delicious tacos and colorful florals everywhere.
Congrats Mark and Jessie! I hope you love this sneak peak, and I had a blast capturing your day!
