San Diego Wedding

Heather and Chad's Coronado Community Center Wedding

Heather and Chad's Wedding at Coronado community Center and Paradise Point-14.jpg

Yesterday was a stunner here in San Diego. Perfect weather, clear blue skies, and all kinds of out pouring's of love! Heather and Chad's wedding party was huge and full of amazing and loving people, who were all there to support this couple in any way they could.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, all the familial love is my favorite part of a wedding day. It's overwhelming sometimes how awe inspiring that love can be. I'm not gonna lie, I shed more than a few tears yesterday witnessing this couple's joy and love. 

This sweet couple's story started through instagram, but really they had been in orbit around each other their whole lives. They lived in the same town growing up, their families had similar stories and vacations, and all those things played a part in why they were perfect for each other. But it's all about timing people! And these two came together at the perfect time, to fall in love. I guess the moral of their love story is keep your eyes and heart open, because love really could come into your life at any time and in any way.

So congratulations Chad and Heather! Here's to love and perfect timing! I can't wait to see where life takes you, and to get you the rest of these stunners.

The Big Fake Wedding San Diego at The New Children's Museum


I am so thrilled to finally be sharing pictures from The Big Fake Wedding in San Diego, from early in January. The Big Fake Wedding is such fun event, we get to put on a real wedding for a real couple and show of the talents of some amazing San Diego Wedding Vendors. SOOO there is a lot to share so I'm going to apologize in advance for the crazy long post. I've broken it into 3 sections so hopefully that helps. Each section focuses on a different part of the day. 

For Section 1 I focused on the details of the bride and her bridesmaids. The style inspiration was light airy and fun with a focus on shape form. Because of the space we really focus on architecture and industrial design, but the bride and groom were so light and fun that The New Children's museum was a perfect fit! 

I hope you love all these pictures, and the amazing fun we had with this real life couple!
