Wedding Wednesday: Victoria & Abel

5/2/2015  |  The Prado

It was an intimate, beautiful and classic wedding at the historic Prado in Balboa Park. The ceremony was so emotional the onlookers from outside the wedding were crying. The wedding was the true example of what true love looks like.

Wedding Wednesday: Lisa & Michael

10/4/2014  |  Wedgewood Wedding and Banquet Center

A blend of Michael's Military traditions and Lisa's love for Spanish-Colonial Style architecture was the setting for their 2nd marriage to each other (they first married each other in the courthouse before Mike's Afghanistan deployment). The theme they hoped to convey was the romance they share together, coupled with their lighter philosophy on life. An open bar was a must, as well as having their guests dress to impress with a black tie formal request. The couple called it a date night out for everyone and included a fancy hour with wine and cheese prior to the start of the ceremony. By the time the guests got to the photo booths...well lets just say the pictures were epic. The newly wed couple ended the night with a cappuccino bar and fun with sparklers.
