Grand Del Mar Wedding – Chris & Taryn

Grand Del Mar Wedding – Chris & Taryn

Congratulations to our new neighbors Chris and Taryn, who just moved from Los Angeles to just a few minutes away from us.  A move and planning a wedding must have been a breeze for this couple, whenever we spoke prior to the wedding the couple was relaxed and excited for the big day!  When Taryn told us during the initial consult that her daddy was a wedding planner and was scheming to make his baby girl’s wedding what he’d always dreamed about, we were eagerly anticipating how it would all come together.  Chris and Taryn’s wedding was truly dream like at the decadent Grand Del Mar Hotel in Del Mar, CA.  It seems that every time we turned around Taryn and Chris had fresh happy tears, it’s and inspiration to see two people so in love.  Deshun and I half-way joke about renewing our vows every weekend, hearing couples affirm their heart felt vows strengthens ours.  Love you guys!

Grand Del Mar Wedding – Chris & Taryn

El Cortez Wedding San Diego | Brian & Jennifer

El Cortez Wedding San Diego

Although Jennifer is an event planner herself, she knew how important it was to have a wedding event planner to make the day go smoothly for the couple and the guests.  Jenny from Luxe Events did a fabulous job of coordinating and designing this opulent wedding with gilded golds, blushes and champagnes.  The El Cortez is a dramatic venue in itself with spanish charm surrounded by  San Diego’s stunning skyline.  Rabbi Ian gives such heartfelt and meaningful ceremonies and in the video below you’ll see how beautifully this Jewish wedding came together.  We had a great time with the lively bridal party and the family that knows how to party, below are a few images that tell the story of Brian and Jennifer’s most special day.

Green Gables Wedding, San Marcos CA | Glenn & Danielle

Green Gables Wedding, San Marcos CA | Glenn & Danielle

One of the things that stays in our minds after the wedding is Danielle’s sweet face and just how calm but joyous she was as she got ready for the wedding.  Glenn didn’t have enough wonderful things to say about his ‘heart’ as he referred to her in the touching speech he gave for her during the reception, which had everyone in tears.  From the engagement session to the save the date cards/invitations and on to the wedding, the vision was to incorporate lace and rustic wood grain with the juxtaposition of glam chandeliers.  The design elements with the help of the day of coordinator Will at Green Gables Wedding Estate came together.  Love the little surprises that the venue left for Danielle in the bridal room, there were scrabble letters and a banner hung to welcome the bride. Some of our favorite newlywed photos of the day were the shots with the greenery surrounding the couple and the glowing twinkle light photos.  Thank you Danielle and Glenn for having us on your special day, Congratulations!!

Green Gables Wedding Photography and Cinematography | Dustin & Katrina

Green Gables Wedding Photography and Cinematography, San Marcos

Airy modern-vintage garden wedding at Green Gables wedding Estate in San Marcos CA.  Katrina and Dustin are fashion forward and creatively styled a personalized wedding theme around their interests.  Fun, family, friends and comedic moments captured on this love filled day.  One of the great benefits of our team capturing the day with stills and footage is consistent style of editing.  And with each of us photographing and filming throughout the day the coverage is seamless and allows for more candid captures.  Dustin and Katrina’s friends and family are energetic and fun loving, and by giving them space (with just the right amount of direction) allowed for their personalities to shine through.  This couple booked us two years prior to the wedding and we had been waiting for what felt like ‘forever’ for the big day.  While working on the title ‘Dr. and Dr.’ they wanted to leave ample to time to plan for the title of ‘Mr. and Mrs.’ and between medical school and studying they still had time for the cutest instagram posts!  We had the opportunity to get to know the couple by photographing the engagement session and sharing thai food together.  They introduced us to Bahn Thai, now one of our fav spots to eat when shooting in San Diego!  Thank you Katrina and Dustin for trusting us to capture your memories and allowing us to blend our style with yours, love you guys!

Ha ha, the ringbearer mimicking Dustin during the garter toss – priceless!

Look at how gorgeous the tent reception looks with custom up-lighting by Music Phreek DJ and his team.  Highly recommend adding up-lighting for ambiance in person and in photos!

Bryan & Karen’s Wedding | Twin Oaks Estate, San Marcos

Twin Oaks Estate Wedding Photography San Marcos, CA

This was one of those weddings that wherever you turned someone was laughing or crying. (mostly laughing…..I think)  There was so much love and emotion and we found ourselves getting caught up in it all, it’s a wonderful thing to capture this joy!  We got to know the couple a bit prior to the wedding – they invited us to stay in their guestroom the night of the engagement session.  A night of old records and wine!  They stay near the beach in Oxnard and it was special to capture the couple sharing in all the fun things they enjoy in the city and in Ventura.  Karen and Bryan’s Twin Oaks garden wedding featured succulents, corals and sage green.  The weddings dress was handmade by the mother of the bride, intricate rosettes adorned the bottom of the skirt – so so pretty.  Thank you guys for having us share in your day, we wish you many blessings in your marriage.
