San Diego Beach Wedding | Katie & Jay


You're in for a real treat!  Katie & Jay's San Diego wedding was vibrant and creative and sweet and funny and such a joy to be a part of it all!

I flew down early Friday morning with my hubby Mike for a little beachy getaway; a chance to trade in blazing sun for ocean breezes and vineyards for sand.  Ahhh....

Some of the highlights:

  • The florals were some of the prettiest I've ever seen.
  • Ombre! Bridesmaid's dresses, groomsmen's suits, the origami birds, and even the ink for the signature tree (which Katie's mom lovingly drew!!)
  • The men grew mustaches for the occasion.
  • The party bus was a blast and there may have been an unnamed pregnant someone who did a little pole dancing.
  • We were all in tears during the father-daughter dance.
  • They flew in their priest from Oregon for the ceremony and it was his first ever marriage. He was amazing!
  • Instead of serving a traditional dinner or even buffet, they did small plate stations which allowed the guests to continue to mingle and choose the food they wanted.
  • The photo booth was a hit!
  • Thankfully no photographer was harmed in the making of the Encinitas sign photograph.
  • Every little detail was carefully created and it was an amazing day!
