Alli + Tyler: Engaged!

August 16, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

They flow together as a dynamic unit, Alli and Tyler. Having known each other and been in each other's lives for nearly a decade, they can communicate with just a look, a nearly imperceptible gesture, a touch. She is funny and sweet. He is attentive and loving. Together, they just make sense.

Throughout our time together, Tyler proved that he is the perfect gentleman. He treats Alli with respect and absolute care, and when he holds her in his eyes, they communicate deep affection. At their engagement session, we laughed and immediately had a comfortable rapport.  They are easy to be around, and definitely easy to love.

Alli and Tyler are getting married next year at the Lodge at Torrey Pines- a beautiful venue over looking the ocean.  Being the quintessential San Diego couple that they are, these two love the outdoors and wanted to show off how gorgeous our city is in their engagement photos.

We had a picture perfect day at Presidio Park overlooking San Diego.  The sun cast the perfect golden glow over our setting as these guys showed off their adorableness.  Can you believe how sweet they are??? And Alli came with three killer dresses :)

 

Alli and Tyler, you guys truly have something special!  I could not be more excited to shoot your wedding, and for the amazing adventure you have in front of you.  You're totally going to rock this marriage thing ;)

 

Hugs,

 

Crystal

Jesus & Claudia Gastelum Wedding Ceremony {VIDEO}

June 04, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Jesus and Claudia were married in the historic Mission San Diego de Alcalá. Founded in 1769, this mission was the first one on the west coast and claimed to be the birthplace of Christianity in California. The modern building is a replica of architects best estimation of the design of what the original church was many years ago. 

Jesus and Claudia had a gorgeous wedding with a welcoming message from the pastor, scripture readings from the bible, and beautiful hymns from the musicians. I couldn't help thinking of all the beautiful ceremonies that have been performed at this historic church and the great legacy that Jesus and Claudia can claim as part of the history from this church.

Claudia is perfect for Jesus because he brings a calming confidence to her when she is anxious. Likewise, Jesus loves to display his love for Claudia in little ways like gifts for her during busy times. Claudia is best friends with Jesus and they are excited to grow their relationship now that they are married!

 


RB + Shannon- Married! {Video}

May 28, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

The sun streamed through the palm branches above, and the canopy fluttered in the soft breeze as RB and Shannon took each other by the hand and tenderly pledged to love and be loved for the rest of their lives.  These two had eyes only for each other as they said their vows.  Surrounded by the love and affirmation of their family and friends, RB and Shannon tied the knot on a picture perfect San Diego day at Marina Village.  

I think every couple's day is unique and filled with a meaning that they themselves instill in their moments.  When I reflect back on RB and Shannon's powerful ceremony, the word I think of is hope.  It was shining in their eyes, woven into their vows, and evident through every hug given to family and friends that day.  It was prayed over them, wrapped around them, and evident to absolutely everyone in attendance- they were boldly facing the future together, with so much hope in their hearts.

RB and Shannon, we were humbled to share such a tender day with you.  Thank you for letting us see your love for each other, and letting us be there to capture it for you.  We hope you'll look back on this video as the beautiful beginning to a very long, happy adventure together.

 


Jana + Mark: Married! Part 3

This wedding was so full of awesome that we had to give it THREE posts!  I'm so happy to share my reception favorites today!  I can't help but smile when I look through these- the night was full of dancing and laughter.

 

This.first.dance.  Incredible.  Totally choreographed, totally graceful, totally Jana and Mark.

 

 

I loved that they did a dessert bar!  There were so many wonderful homemade goodies for the guests to choose from.  They were hovering close to the table all night ;)

 

Bryan absolutely loved this part.  Mark decided he was going to cut his cake with a sword.

 

Then set the stage for some payback from his new wife.

 

The toasts were full of tears and laughter.

 

And their guests sent them off to their honeymoon in style!

 

Jana and Mark- thank you so much for letting us tag along with you on this incredible day.  You two are so full of life and love for each other.  Marriage has been an amazing adventure for us, and we know it will be for you guys as well.  Happy trails :)

 

Hugs,

 

Bryan and Crystal
