Brandi + Mike | Bali Hai Wedding Photographer

Brandi + Mike were married on a warm summer day near the San Diego Bay Harbor. Their love for sailing & boats was apparent in their nautical-themed reception at the Bali Hai Restaurant’s outdoor wedding venue. As their sailboat sat docked just outside their reception, at nights-end, they sailed away with a warm goodbye from all of their guests (I wasn’t able to capture this but hopefully will post a photo at the end!).   Mike also proposed to Brandi on his sailboat, and, you guessed it, we also had their epic engagement session on their boat {see here}.

I have only sweet and amazing things to say about Brandi and Mike and I consider myself very lucky to have captured their love story… Their first look, Mike’s bow-tie, her dress, their amazing friends and family, and a vendor team that made the day impeccable… everything was perfect.

Thank you Mike and Brandi for trusting me to be by your side and to document your epic wedding day! xoxo, Patty

Stephanie + Brian | San Diego Botanical Garden Wedding Photographer

One of my favorite things about Stephanie and Brian’s intimate wedding at the San Diego Botanic Gardens is that it was all about family for them. Stephanie & Brian’s son and daughter were very much involved in the wedding ceremony and reception. They even held their baby boy during their first dance. Love! And, of course the property is something marvelous.

Stephanie and Brian tied-the-knot in front of 70 of their closest friends and family on perfect July afternoon at the San Diego Botanical Garden Wedding lawn. Their ceremony started off with an impromptu “selfie” from the bride’s brother (that officiated the ceremony) and he continued to make everyone laugh with stories about the two of them throughout the ceremony. The entire day and evening was so relaxed, filled with so much joy and thankfulness for love.

Stephanie and Brian, thank you so much for the honor to document your wedding day. I feel as if we are old friends and I’m so grateful to have met you and your sweet family! Xo, Patty

Melody + Jared | Levyland Estates Wedding

The morning I arrived at Melody and Jared’s destination wedding at Levyland Estates, in Carlsbad, California, the first thing I saw were the flowers; Hundreds of peonies, ohhhh the lovely white and pink peonies! As I marveled her wedding filled with personal details: a Polaroid station, balloons that spelled “hooray”, Instagram #’s & candy everywhere, I remembered, “Oh, this is Melody, all Melody.” So creative, organized, & the kindest girl you will ever meet.

I have had the pleasure to get to know Melody and Jared over the past two years through photographing their engagement photos {wine bar + jcrew-inspired engagement session} and I photographed Melody’s Boudoir shoot as a surprise for Jared. They are the nicest & coolest couple with whom you will want to kick back and hang out with.   And, so thoughtful and kind!

So, when it came time to seeing them exchange their vows, of course this girl {me} shed some tears. So did they. And so did everyone else. It was moving to see so many people adore them & their love for each other. And, it made me love them that much more.

Melody and Jared, I am touched by all of the kindness you have shown me over the past 2 years, and I am so happy for you and your new life together. I am honored to have documented this time in your lives!  xoxo, Patty
