Great wine, lush vineyards, a golden sunset, and rustic details are a winning combo. Emily and Ian gathered their dearly beloved on a gorgeous day in Temecula to share a long anticipated day. After months of planning and perfecting every detail, this beautiful bride and her groom could finally soak in all the rewards, and even better, share it with their favorite people ever. Even their precious pup came to see the celebrations briefly after the ceremony! But beyond the details and all the smiling faces, what touched us most was how much Emily and Ian truly completed each other…and that alone is priceless.

Who would have thought the first time we’d get to photograph a bagpiper in a kilt would be at a vineyard! Emily and Ian honored each of their families with some Filipino and Scottish traditions at their ceremony. Amidst rolling hills of vineyards, we witnessed their excitement as they anticipated the moment they would finally tie the knot after years of being in love! With words they had waited so long to say to one another, they sealed their vows and a bottle of wine in a special box for a future celebration, and officially marked the beginning of their happily ever after.

Dinner started just as the sun was setting, and their table set up of driftwoods, succulents, and soft florals was nothing short of charming. Dining under the canopy was the perfect way to take in the surrounding scenery and feel completely retreated from city life. All their little details were so fun and thoughtful, like their cute handmade signs at the sweetheart table, and a candy bar that included cigars and beef jerky for a proper celebration! Needless to say, all their months of hard work paid off, and their guests enjoyed every moment of their evening at Europa Village. Best of all, there was a very happy bride and groom who could now call each other “husband” and “wife”. Congratulations, Emily and Ian!

June 6, 2014Weddings

Maui might just be one of the most dreamy destinations ever. And with just a handful of your closest and dearest there to share a spectacular week with you, it’s nothing short of epic! Jenny and Weijian decided to get away from busy life in New York and unwind on the beautiful island of Maui. It was our first time ever in this part of Hawaii, and we were so thankful that they planned a whole agenda of activities for everybody to take in the beauty of this island. Yet after enjoying dinner at the Luau, driving down winding paths on the Road to Hana, snorkeling with sea turtles, and eating more Ahi Poke that we could imagine, there was still business to be done. It was time to get these two married! Or Maui’d, as they say (smile).

They spent the week at the beautiful Wailea Elua Village, and spent their wedding morning dropping jaws as they prepared for this long-awaited day. Though everybody around them was elated and snap-happy with their cameras, we decided to let our bride and groom have a little time to themselves and spend some time just with each other (and us…) around the resort. It was such a gorgeous day to soak in all the palm-tree-lined walkways and the blue Hawaiian waters, and an even better day to realize you were about to marry your favorite person in the world.

They tied the knot at Kukahiko Estate, enjoying waterfront views and the tropical sounds of their own ukelele player as Jenny walked down the aisle. We all enjoyed an intimate, beachfront dinner just as the light started to fade on the horizon, listening to stories about our newlyweds and feeling like we were part of their family. Soon enough, the party moved indoors where this small crowd surprised us by how much of a party just under forty people could throw! Needless to say, it was a memorable week capped off by an epic party. We can’t wait to come back to Maui again!

La Jolla is probably one of our favorite places to go on dates in San Diego, with its beautiful coastline, wonderful restaurants, and the hint of romance in the air. While this area definitely has a special place in our hearts, it’s also a treasured spot to many other couples out there, including Tina and Jonathan. Both working in the Navy, they had to spend long months apart from each other while Jonathan was deployed, and yet during one of their reunions back in La Jolla, Jonathan got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife. We revisited the very spot in Scripps Park where he popped the question, and strolled down memory lane along with their beloved little Einstein, who was just an absolute delight to spend the afternoon with! We also wandered over to the lovely Scripps Seaside Forum to relive a little bit of our own memories. Because, yes, it was where we had our own wedding (smile).

We will always love La Jolla…as will Tina and Jonathan. And Einstein.
