This Small Courthouse Wedding turned into an Intimate Wedding with a few friends and family there to witness the joining of these love birds in holy matrimony! It’s definitely the way to go to celebrate an easy and fun Courthouse Wedding Day in Downtown San Diego!

“All you need is love” is so true! I’m constantly reminded, how important Love truly is, with each and every couple that I have the pleasure to meet. Somehow I have managed to meet the most beautiful and loving couples that are truly the best people. You know, those people you are referring to whenever you say, there are still good people out there? Not only did this couple show me what true love is but so did their amazing group of close family and friends!

These soon-to-be newlyweds met me over coffee and that’s when their story unfolded for the first time. Having been through so much in their lives, they found each other and knew pretty quickly that it was the real deal!

There are so many different ways to celebrate non-traditional marriages these days. How do you know which is right for you? The main thing that I believe it comes down to, is asking yourself, what is the most important thing to you on your Wedding Day? I’ll go more into that here..

Just because you may be having a quick wedding, doesn’t mean that you have to go solo at it (or should i say as a duet). And it definitely doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have some beautiful wedding photography to remember your day by. It’s just as special as big wedding with 300 on the guest list! In fact, I believe it’s even the more special because it’s a day that’s literally just about the two of you!

An outdoor wedding for your San Diego Civil Marriage Ceremony at the San Diego County Administration Center with a Harbor front view is a beautiful location that is perfect for your family and friends to join in on.

You have two options: indoor or outdoor wedding. If I can stress one thing, do the outdoor ceremony. I don’t care if there is rain, June Gloom, snow, wind, or white walkers are on their way. The indoor location Doesn’t compare to the outdoor one, there is no question that crazy weather would be worth it. Your friends and family can stand together and watch the two of you officially start your lives together, the photographer is able to get some beautiful photos, and then you have time to have your first portraits together as a married couple in a beautiful and historical location!

One bit of advice: Don’t forget your marriage license!

San Diego Wedding

San Diego Wedding Photography

Recently, I was overjoyed to have been found by a wonderful couple from out of town. I knew as soon as I heard their voices over the phone that they would be awesome to work with! Destination Weddings are becoming more and more popular, especially here in San Diego and Southern California. For several years, soon-to-be newlyweds have been upping the game. Elopements are taking couples and wedding photographers to new locations and requiring adventurous journeys to get there.

The first time we met we both traveled to Palm Springs where we took beautiful engagement photos during an Engagement Session in the desert. It was really hot but we managed to get quite a bit of the Session finished before we hit 100 degrees and called it a day. A few months later, their wedding brought us back to the same location and we were able to explore something a bit more rocky and cooler in Palm Springs. This city is such an amazing place to be married and capture both engagement and wedding photos. Within a small area, you have desert, sand dunes, mountains, and meadows.

We started the day at a wonderful venue in a Catholic Church that was extremely accommodating. It was gorgeous and had Old Spanish Mission vibes. It is such a unique little church in the middle of downtown Palm Springs. After that, we packed into some cars and headed a few blocks to the couples portrait session location. We piled on some warm clothes, grabbed the Photography Permit for the top of Mt. San Jacinto and headed towards the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. We had quite a bit of snow and the largest crowd ever to deal with so we only managed to grab a few photos in our time frame, but I will say, they were perfection and I can’t wait to get back to the mountain! Here are some photos from their wonderful, blessed day!

The reception was held a short drive away in a little town next Palm Springs. The Venue continued on with the old Spanish Vibes. If you’re looking for a great Wedding or Reception Venue, check out this beautiful spot in Indian Wells.

...and as you’ll learn, I’m definitely obsessed with wedding cake! Tell me your favorite kind of cake in the comments section!? Mine is this vanilla soaked cake from Freed’s Bakery in Las Vegas!

WIth Lots of Love and Good Vibes,
