Veronica + Ramon’s San Diego wedding at Liberty Station + Marina Village

0032 Veronica + Ramons San Diego wedding at Liberty Station + Marina Village

 

Veronica and Ramon are such a fun couple … Kristy and I fell in love with them when we met and heard all about Ramon’s proposal including going shopping with her mother to pick out a new outfit including of course shoes! They planned their beautiful San Diego wedding which started with Veronica and her girls getting ready at the Lowes Hotel on Coronado Island.  After hair and makeup was done at Lowes, we headed back towards San Diego to the North Chapel at Liberty Station where they would have their ceremony.  Veronica chose to get ready at the church, so we were able to get into the bridal suite before the ceremony and after getting dressed we kicked out everyone other than Veronica and snuck Ramon into the bridal suite so that they could see each other before the ceremony and have a few quiet moments alone together.

As you can see from the details, Veronica and Ramon brought in a touch of vintage inspired details to their wedding including the flowers, printing for both the ceremony program as well as escort cards and details on the table as well.  They had beautiful centerpieces including bottles of wine for each table and even a wooden popcorn station during cocktail hour.  In addition to all the details put out for their guests one detail which Kristy and I talked to Veronica about at our first meeting and which Kristy created a pinterest board for was the cowboy boots hiding under her dress.

Veronica and Ramon’s reception at Marina Village in Mission Bay was fun and fantastic! They had purple uplights around the perimeter of their reception hall and the natural wood panels really tied in with a lot of their details.

Selecting images for the blog post was difficult to say the least, but to see just a handful of my favorite images from their fun day, click on the large image above, or any of the smaller thumbnails below. (OH! I had a blast making a composite of the Ramon and his guys.  They each had super hero t-shirts on under their tuxes so I photographed them at the reception and composited that image with a really dramatic sky shot … enjoy!)

Susan + Sascha’s Baltimore Wedding at the Louisiana Restaurant in Fells Point

 

092212 0026 Susan + Saschas Baltimore Wedding at the Louisiana Restaurant in Fells Point

I recently traveled back to Baltimore for Susan and Sascha’s wedding at the beautiful and unique location of the Louisiana Restaurant in historic Fells Point.  It was a beautiful day in Baltimore as Sascha and her girls as well as Sascha and his guys got ready in the East Harbor area.  We had time before their ceremony to do portraits of the bridal party, then hopped in the shuttle for the short ride across town through Fells Point and to the beautiful Louisiana Restaurant for their ceremony and reception.  The Louisiana Restaurant is just off of Broadway taking up the former façade of two baltimore row homes.

Susan and Sascha’s friends and family sat in the main dining room at the back of the restaurant and watched as Sascha and Susan exchanged vows and rings in front of a beautiful staircase.  After the ceremony we all rode the shuttle down to the historic Fells Point Pier for family portraits as well as photos with Sascha and Susan and their bridal party.  After the families and bridal party were shuttled back to the Louisiana Restaurant for the final half of the cocktail hour, Susan and Sascha and I went on to the Red Star … the site of their first date.  We photographed not only out front of the restaurant, but also beneath the tree just down the street which was where they actually first met.

As the clouds gathered and threatened to pour down rain, we finished a few final portraits before returning back to the Louisiana Restaurant for their reception.  It was a beautiful and unique wedding.

Barbara + Cherokee | Catamaran Resort and Spa Wedding in San Diego

0030 Barbara + Cherokee | Catamaran Resort and Spa Wedding in San Diego

I LOVE being a wedding photographer in San Diego!!!! Barbara and Cherokee had an amazing wedding at the Catamaran Resort and Spa in San Diego’s Mission Bay.  Continuing our streak of amazing weather weekends … yes, this is what San Diego is known for … Barbara and Cherokee could not have asked for a more beautiful day to celebrate their wedding!  Barbara and her girls got ready in one of the penthouse suites in the tall tower at the Catamaran resort.  This was the first time I had been in the tower, and the suite rooms were beautiful, with amazing light pouring in from the floor to ceiling windows.  Meanwhile, Cherokee and his guys were getting ready on the ground level of the tower.  With all it’s meandering paths, and beautiful grounds the Catamaran Resort served as a great location for photographs of Barabara and her girls as well as Cherokee and his guys before the wedding.  We were able to find quiet corners away from arriving guests, and hidden from each other since they decided not to have a first look before the ceremony.

I met with Barbara a week before their wedding to talk about the timeline and go over details for their wedding.  They had decided to incorporate sweets and candies into their wedding, and themed the tables around some of their favorite sugary confections.  She explained that she and Cherokee had gone crazy on Etsy buying little details for their wedding day, and when I met with Cherokee, I saw what she was talking about … Cherokee and his guys had personalized socks, and sunglasses with hipster mustaches built in.  Their wedding was held on the lawn at the Catamaran Resort overlooking Mission Bay.

I had such a difficult time making selections of my favorite images for this blog post, so I apologize to Barbara and Cherokee for taking a bit of extra time getting this online.  Every time I thought I had my favorites selected there was another one there that I wanted to add.  Eventually, I had to make my selections and know that all the images will be on Pictage, and Barbara and Cherokee can select their own favorites.  To see just a handful of some of the beauty and fun from Barbara and Cherokee’s wedding, click on the large image above or any of the smaller thumbnails below.

Heather + Sean’s Los Altos Garden Wedding


0040 Heather + Seans Los Altos Garden Wedding

 

Heather grew up in Los Altos Hills, just outside of Palo Alto, and Stanford University about a half an hour south of San Francisco and due west of San Jose, California.  Her family still lives in the home that her mother grew up in and her grandmother still lives there as well.  So when Heather … aka “Biz” moved to Maryland and met Sean she always knew her wedding would still be back in Los Altos where she had grown up.  Sean on the other hand, is a native Marylander, and I had the pleasure of photographing his sister Noelle’s wedding several years ago before I moved to San Diego.  So I was thrilled when Sean contacted me to see if I would be able to travel to what would be for both Sean and Heather, their destination wedding in Los Altos Hills.

Kristy and I traveled north to San Jose on Friday before Heather and Sean’s wedding, and spent the afternoon scouting locations for portraits.  We found that next to the garden where Heather and Sean were holding their ceremony as well as cocktail hour and their reception there was a beautiful Redwood grove with amazing light filtering through the ancient and giant trees.  The next day, Kristy and I met Heather and her girls at her family’s home while the girls got ready.  From there we went to the Sequoia grove to photograph Heather and her girls before the ceremony.  Later, Sean and his guys would meet us here, and I absolutely loved the Maryland belt buckles that Sean had given to all of his groomsmen.  Heather’s lace dress, her girls pale blue skirts, and Sean and his guys linen pants were such classic looks for their garden wedding.

The ceremony was presided over by a close friend of Heather and Sean, while both of their father’s provided words of wisdom about marriage.  The cocktail hour was hosted in the garden beneath the giant redwood trees and family photos were strung between the trees.  The main hall of Shoup Park had been transformed into a beautiful space and even included the Maryland flag proudly displayed by the stage.  Sean’s grooms cake was a bucket of steamed maryland blue crabs with Old Bay and Natty Boh! LOVE the Maryland Pride!

San Diego Marina Village Wedding | Holly + Adam

072912 0015 San Diego Marina Village Wedding | Holly + Adam

Holly and Adam went to the same High School in Maine together, but didn’t know each other until they were working together at a ski resort in Lake Tahoe, California.  Among a small gathering of their closest friends and family members, Adam and Holly were married at the Marina Village in Mission Bay, San Diego.  Although they didn’t have a “theme” for their wedding per se, they incorporated purple in their color scheme, not because it’s simply the most popular color to hit the wedding world in the past year, but because Adam is a HUGE Ravens fan! (YAY Adam!!!! … we’re totally hanging at Dirty Birds this year!)

Holly and her girls got ready at Marina Village in Mission Bay, while Adam, and his family were busy setting up the Dockside room for their reception and getting the bar all ready.  Since Adam works in the restaurant industry, he had a firm grip on all the bar needs, as well as organizing the catering and even hand made the cupcakes for their wedding.

One of my favorite moments from Holly and Adam’s wedding was their first look.  After all the stress of getting the entire day together, worrying about how to get the keg hooked up for the reception, decorating the reception hall not to mention all of the little details they handled that I don’t even know about.  The emotion of the day caught up to both of them, and Adam was by far the most emotional groom I’ve ever photographed when he saw his future wife for the first time on their wedding day.  First looks can be so great, and for both Holly and Adam, you could feel the tension just evaporate, you could tell that the details no longer mattered, they were able to be in the moment and truly enjoy their wedding day.

Since the majority of their guests were traveling into town from other parts of the country, they decided to have Mexi-Cal cuisine for their reception including individually made street tacos, guacamole, salsa fresca and some local San Diego microbrews at the bar. During the reception DJ Daniel got and kept the dancefloor going, and even had Holly take the turntables while one of her guests took the mic for a song.
