Kayla and Michael met while both is high school! These two were in marching band together and had math the same math class. They loved playing music together so it was a natural fit to start dating. They truly uplift one another through love and happiness. Always making one another laugh and being the others greatest cheerleader. Even at their young age, they knew what love really meant! They continued dating through college. While Kayla was on a trip to Eastern Europe, Michael made her ring for her. The week she returned he took her to Coronado to a very quaint little park on the bay to play ukuleles together… There, on the bench, Michael asked Kayla to marry him. Kayla couldn’t wait to say “yes.” These two love ukuleles, guitars…. cooking, exploring, cars/motorcycles, flying kites, movies, video games, snowboarding and walking on the beach. They also have a killer We have a big vinyl collection!!!
Roseanna and Nathan are such a great team!! Not only are they best fiends but they also both love the Padres, so much so that Nathan asked For Roseanna’s hand in marriage while at the Padres game on the big screen. She of course said “yes” with a few thousand onlookers. They picked the Oceanview Room for many reasons… the biggest one was the beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean!!! Oh, and the stunning sunset!
We had such a great two days with Maya and the Zagursky family. On Friday we got to shot Maya preparing for her ceremony with close family and friends. It’s so nice to watch Maya’s Dad and other family members facial expressions, while Maya was reciting her prayers. They all looked beyond proud of Mya and all her hard work. She did it!! On Saturday night we headed to Searsucker for Maya’s big bash! What a night. The kids danced the night away while eating cotton candy and the adults had a blast watching and eating amazing food from Searsucker! We want to send out a special thank you to Grandma Dolly and Aunt Jessica for being so wonderful!!!
Stacey and Roberto met online a couple years ago! They really loved hanging out and wanted to see were if “dating” thing could go. They find that they both loved traveling, hiking, movies, soccer, anything that they could do together together. Roberto knew Stacey was his forever lady, so he asked for her hand in marriage while on vacation to the stunning and romantic town of Uyuni, Bolivia on the salt flats. She of course said “yes.” What they both love the most about each other is their big hearts. Stacey and Roberto’s wedding was so beautiful. It’s not everyday that we get to head down south of the border to beautiful Baja California for a wedding. We really enjoyed the whole weekend of festivities. The food, the people and of course our amazing couple Stacey and Roberto!
We loved working with these two beautiful people! David and Jacqueline are so sweet with each other. They really made the day fun and effortless! I think you can see the love that they have for one another throughout the photos.
Brittany and Julian met back in high school, although they didn’t date at that time… knowing each other will help out 9 years later! Julian was going to nursing school and Brittany had worked as a nurse for a few years. They had a surprise baby girl in 2016 and then added another baby boy in 2017. Brittany and Julian have been together ever since! Julian and Brittany have it all!!! Julian asked for Brittany’s hand in marriage while at the San Diego safari park. They spent a lot of time there with their kids and it has always been a favorite spot of theirs! Julian and Brittany love that they can be themselves. Julian plays guitar to their kids and they often sing songs together! Of course Brittany can’t really sing well so it’s all in fun! They both love love love music! Instead of gifts they give each other experiences for birthdays and holidays. Hence the music theme wedding they had! They have been to Eric Clapton, Elton John, and are headed to Bonaroo in June. Sounds like a match made in Heaven!
Alessandra and Ryan met 10 years ago through mutual friends! They really enjoyed meeting each other and wanted to hand out more!!! Once they started dating and getting to know each other they found that they both liked to play VERY competitive mini-golf, discovering and playing video games together, cooking and baking and playing board games! They also love watching TV together (ranging from PBS docuseries to trashy reality TV.) Alessandra also noticed some qualities that Ryan has that made her feel like “yes, this is the man I love” Ryan is compassionate, loving and hilarious. Ryan understands Alessandra in a way that makes her feel un-judged and loved unconditionally. Ryan is always kind and respectful, and he always tries, even when it is hard. Ryan was also feeling the “love vibes” he loves that Alessandra understands him like she does, and she always makes Ryan feel comfortable to share his feelings. After 10 years of dating they designed the engagement ring together, so Alessandra knew it was coming. Ryan proceeded to “fake-out” proposing, by taking Alessandra to nice dinners, tying his shoelaces on romantic walks, etc. Then, while they were in a rush to leave their home, Alessandra ran by the door to their bedroom to find Ryan on one knee. Apparently, according to certain sources (Ryan), Alessandra bawled and said “Are you f**king serious” before gladly accepting. I love that!! Sounds like the perfect thing to say!! These two picked Birch Aquarium to host their big day, of a bunch of reasons!! Ryan studied marine biology in college and has such a passion for it, and Alessandra grew up going to the aquarium with her family every time they were in San Diego. The Birch Aquarium is a venue that promotes conservation, which they love and want to support, and allows their guests to learn and tour the entire place for the evening, making it extra special. It doesn’t hurt that it is gorgeous and the view of the coast are awe-inspiring.
Ashley had no idea that one day while walking the campus of San Diego Mesa College she’d meet her future husband! That’s what happen one special day when Luigi and Ashley’s path crossed. These two dated for 5 years before Luigi asked for Ashley’s hand in marriage. She is definitely worth the wait!!! Luigi proposed while heading to a concert at Humphrey’s by the bay! These two sweet souls love traveling together to different places around the world and experiencing different cultures and delicious food. When they are not exploring the world, they love to lounge around the house and cook together. For their honeymoon these two are off to beautiful Cabo… for what reason, you ask??? For the Taco’s!!!!
