Harbor Island, San Diego Wedding: Maggie and Brent

Harbor Island, San Diego Wedding: Maggie and Brent

Maggie holds Brent's face before she kisses him in the most utterly romantic way - she deeply loves this man! - and Brent smiles from ear to ear when he's close to her. These two wanted to wed with a bit of tradition, a bit of intimacy, yet also a sense of inclusion of all of their friends and family, both near and far. The result: a Jewish wedding ceremony overlooking the San Diego bayside attended only by their absolute inner circle, followed by a fun filled, food and cocktail flowing party at The Pearl for all of their loved ones a few days later. 

Maggie, your love for champagne, the Bachelorette, and absolute kind heart makes me so grateful we crossed paths. Brent, your speech and wonderful words spoken about Maggie had me holding back the tears. The genuine love you two share is so very evident and I'm beyond honored you chose me to document your entire wedding celebration. xo, Evelyn

A few days post ceremony, Maggie and Brent invited all of their friends and family for an amazing party at The Pearl Hotel! Maggie LOVES rose gold, so it was no surprise to see pops of this color throughout the reception's decor!

One of the best part's about having a reception on a different date than the ceremony? New dress, new hair do, and more portraits of Maggie and Brent!

Park Hyatt Aviara Wedding Inspiration Shoot

Park Hyatt Aviara Wedding Inspiration Shoot

I believe in timelessness: neutrals never go out of style and dressing up formally for momentous occasions is a must. These thoughts are what inspired this Park Hyatt Aviara classic wedding inspiration shoot wedding industry vendors who I admire and deeply respect!

With luxurious, lush foliage and Spanish colonial architecture, Park Hyatt Aviara was the perfect backdrop for this classic couple’s portraits. The bride was dressed in a Pronovias gown found at Downtown San Diego's Elle Bridal and with hair and make-up done by the talented and sweet Cindy Tran of Noir Beaute. The groom wore a classic tuxedo from Stitch & Tie like it was custom made for him! A little back story: I told Stitch & Tie, "My 'groom' works out. Can you ensure this will fit?!" and with just his measurements, they delivered!

The neutral colored bouquet and boutonniere from the amazingly warm LaVonne Crawford of Adorations Inc, made my heart fly: not only was it gorgeous, it smelled amazing.

Eoy this Park Hyatt Avaira wedding inspiration for the classic, San Diego resort wedding!

Bernardo Winery Wedding: Megan and Branden

Megan and Branden: each a calm soul who's smile grows wider in the other's presence. Nothing - not even the rain - phased them on their beautiful wedding day at Bernardo Winery because they were each marrying their best friend.

Complete 'foodies,' fans of games and the outdoors (as seen in their engagement session), and close with their friends and family, Megan and Branden's wedding reflected all of these factors: Megan's sister, Lauren, an exceptional pastry chef, baked an entire dessert bar for the wedding, and Branden's aunt, Loni, created not only every centerpiece and floral arrangement, but the gorgeous, succulent inspired hair piece Megan wore in hair along with her stunning bouquet. 

With hair and make up by Chelsea Giannini of Anchor Artristry, Megan was an absolute stunning bride who was praised by Branden in his welcome speech, noting how Megan has always supported his entrepreneurial dreams and has been a rockstar herself in her career, beating out 300+ applicants for her role in research at the San Diego Zoo.

Megan and Branden, I think the world of you two and the love you two share. I wish you the absolute best! You two make me thrilled to have brides and grooms as kind as you with equally as amazing friends and family. xoxo- Evelyn

Sunset Cliffs Wedding Portraits: Becca and Alex

Becca grew up just minutes away from Sunset Cliffs in San Diego; seeing the expanse and vastness of the blue, Pacific Ocean from atop the cliffs on her wedding day was something Becca dreamed of experiencing, so we matched her love for this location with her love of now-husband Alex by kicking off their day with a First Look on the cliffs. Becca simply stunned with her Katie May Collection wedding dress and together, Becca and Alex enjoyed a day filled with friends and family who joined them from San Diego, upstate New York, and even Europe!

Becca and David, thank you for having me document your wedding day! I wish you both the best in your life together! -Evelyn


Becca and Alex said their 'I do's' with a touching ceremony at Bali Hai Restaurant followed by a reception with a number of toasts and a perfect sunset overlooking downtown San Diego!

Estancia La Jolla Wedding: Nicole and Sam

Estancia La Jolla Wedding: Nicole and Sam

Tick tock, tick tock. Nicole was having her watch fixed at a local watch shop when she looked up to see a dashing gentleman and thought, "I'm going to marry that man." The problem: her friend, the watch store owner, would not introduce her to him. "He's unavailable," she advised; this man, Sam, was a widow, single father to a daughter, and not looking to date.

Having felt love at sight, Nina was delighted to cross paths with Sam later a holiday party where she introduced her charming self, and Sam became smitten. As a mother of two young boys herself, Nicole and Sam first bonded over parenthood, and their love story unfolded.

With Nicole's sons at her side as she walked down the isle, Nicole and Sam held a Jewish ceremony with their closest friends and family on the beautiful grounds of Estancia La Jolla gorgeously decorated with floral designs from Compass Floral.

Nicole and Sam, congratulations! Thank you for asking me to document your special day and I wish you both an eternity of happiness!
