So-Cal girl meets Nor-Cal guy, fall in love, marry by the ocean.

We were thrilled to capture Mark and Amy as they said their I Do’s amongst closest family and friends at the historic La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla, California. The bridal party got ready in a suite overlooking the ceremony gardens and beautiful oceanfront. The most emotion part of the day was watching Amy’s 97 year-old father walked her down the aisle. I had to wipe tears between my captures. It was so beautiful watching him tear up as he saw his little girl come down the stairs. The California sun held steady as the ceremony took place on the lovely lawn overlooking the hotel poolside guests. Cocktail hour followed and we took the newlyweds down to the waterfront for some portraits. Lunch and laughs were held in the Verandah Room to follow. The purple and white accents glowed as the guests enjoyed the afternoon. Toasts were an important part of the festivities, laughs and tears were abundant. Everyone took their departure back home and we stayed to capture some more bride and groom shots as the sun was setting in Southern California. This was a true family affair and we were thrilled to be part of it all during this special day for Amy and Mark!
