Adam + Bethany | The Ultimate Skybox Wedding

Surrounded by their closest friends and family with mini champagne bottles in hand, Bethany + Adam’s rooftop wedding at The Ultimate Skybox, in Downtown San Diego was without-a-doubt breathtaking. At dusk, they tied-the-knot overlooking Petco Park, a 180 degree view of downtown San Diego and a killer ocean view.  Prior in the day, continuing the urban theme, Bethany and Adam both got ready at Hotel Indigo {also overlooking Petco Park!}. An intimate rooftop first-look was arranged so they could have peaceful and unforgettable moment before the busyness of their day began. Looooved their first look!

Adam and Bethany own a condo across the street from The Ultimate Skybox, so an “urban vibe” is what they really wanted to be surrounded by; they also call The East Village Home.  This is also where they had their engagement session so their urban theme carried on til their wedding day.   Bethany’s Lazaro dress {who he  personally autographed his sketch of Bethany’s dress the day she met him at a trunk show}, sapphire ring, her gold and sparkly shoes, the mashed potato bar, mini champagne drinks, lots of dancing, celebrating and all the modern love that came with it made their wedding day complete with “urban love”.

Adam + Bethany, I am truly thankful that our paths crossed (at a wedding networking event!) and thank you dearly for choosing me to document the abundant love you two shared that day at The Ultimate Skybox; it was a blast and an honor! Xo. Patty

Jackie + Tom | Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront Wedding Photography | Cape Rey Wedding

Every once in a while, you meet a couple and their love story stays in your heart. Jackie and Tom have that story, and it proves true love can happen a second time around. Both of whom have been married before, Tom a widower. They were just so absolutely in love when I met them at their consult and their wedding was so, so sweet! Their family priest came and held a ‘Catholic-like” outdoor ceremony where her 3 sons walked her down the isle. I’m so excited to share this wedding with you but 1st, Jackie’s story in her words…

 “We met while he was doing the remodel on my office.  I always said I would never meet anyone at work but God does work in mysterious ways.  We kind of laugh about it now.  We both love the beach and running.  We run by the beach as much as possible and actually ran by the land the Carlsbad Oceanfront Hilton sits on before it was built.  We ran by it all the time!!!  It just seemed natural that the Hilton Oceanfront would be the place we would get married.  We both know how lucky we are that we met each other.  It was certainly meant to be.

 Thank you Jackie and Tom, I was so honored to make these memories for you at  Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront | Cape Rey Carlsbad. I’m sooo happy for you both! Xo, Patty

Darlington House Wedding Photography | Eddie + Taryn

Facebook, when you really think about it, is fascinating for so many reasons, and I  marvel at it sometimes… It has also brought millions of people together, has reunited love and has sealed-the-deal on love for many.

In Taryn + Eddie’s story, Enterprise Car Rental brought them together {as friends}, and Facebook ‘sealed-the-deal’ for their love. I’ve got to mention that Taryn found ME on Facebook too!

In ’08, Taryn + Eddie met at Enterprise Rental Car but were just ‘friends’. When she left, she never expected to see Eddie again. But a year-and-a-half later, when Eddie poked her {a Facebook, “wink” of a sort, or maybe just a “hi”} to get her attention, it must have worked. Wonderfully! Taryn and Eddie shared a long-distance ‘friendship’ for 5 months until they mutually expressed that they both wanted something more.  You can tell that they were placed on this earth to be each other’s soul mates. They compliment each other perfectly (as heard in their family’s speeches… or maybe a little ‘roast’ for Taryn).

Five years later, and last week, they ‘sealed-the-deal’ forever, at the gorgeous and historic Darlington House in La Jolla, California.

Their outdoor, Mexican/American-themed wedding was adored by 100+ guests, where they sipped margaritas, ate amazing grilled salmon and devoured Churro Wedding Cake, amongst the most delicious mini desserts from Elizabethan Desserts in Encinitas {can I get an ahh-mazing!?, and yes, we had some!).

Taryn + Eddie, Thank you for inviting us to create your family’s memoirs and document your wedding day as you became husband and wife! Xo

Grand Pacific Palisades Resort Wedding Photography | Mike + Katie

You know that feeling of really wanting a certain bride to be your client? That’s how I felt when I first spoke to Katie. She was so kind, sweet and just very easy going.  She was planning a summer destination wedding in Carlsbad (she and her fiance live in Chicago) and thankfully we sealed-the-deal via Skype!

Katie and Mike met working as teachers at an international school in Malawi, Africa. Mike is from Chicago and she is from California, and their love bloomed all the way across the world while in Africa. A strong, sweet love.

They decided to have a destination wedding at the gorgeous Grand Pacific Palisades Resort and Hotel where the local brewery, Karl Strauss Carlsbad catered {yes, there was a lot of beer!}.

Katie + Mike…it was an honor seeing your love flourish on your wedding day and to meet all of the 130+ loved ones around you. You’re two of the nicest clients and you are perfect for each other! I wish you nothing but the best.

And, of course, a special shout out to my 2nd photographer, Leif Brandt! You rocked it as usual Leif.
