Tina + Eric | Cuvier Park & Bistro Pazzo

Tue, Jun 14 2011 04:33 | Permalink Tina and Eric were married on a perfectly sunny afternoon at Cuvier Park in La Jolla, overlooking the ocean. It was a beautiful, intimate ceremony preformed by Bethel of Ceremonies by Bethel. Some of their closest friends flew out to join them. Some of you might know or recognize Mr. Eric Scott Gold of Classy Event Group (if you're looking for a wedding DJ, photo booth or venue, click that link). Their reception was held at Bistro Pazzo in La Jolla. If you know him or his now wife, Tina, I'm sure you can imagine that we had a great time!

Thanks Eric and Tina for having us as part of your wedding day. And for letting me dog sit during the ceremony :)


We Love Enticing Tables

We really really do...they beautify anything from the average table to cupcake and cake stands to ceremony decor and we have fun working with them.

Here's a few photos from our photoshoot with them at the Coronado Island Marriott.

Caroline + Scott | Grand Tradition Estate

Thu, Apr 21 2011 10:22 | Permalink We met Caroline and her mom at a Bridal Bazaar and we loved them right away. Caroline actually came back later in the show and booked us on the spot! We encourage this type of behavior, although we know it's rare :)

Caroline and Scott met in college and had an incredible romantic wedding on really the most perfectly beautiful San Diego day! We did their entire wedding with two cameras, plus some surprise third camera footage from Tara and her little new HD cam!

Here is their romantic wedding day highlight from the Grand Tradition! I shouldn't spoil the video, but I definitely got a bit emotional seeing the carriage ride in with her dad. That really is magical. I loved seeing their parents watching them during the ceremony and Caroline & Scott "dancing" with grandma via skype at the reception. Caroline is a cheer coach and all her girls were there to cheer them on at various parts of the reception. Adorable.

Kathryn + Nathan | Same Day Edit | Estancia La Jolla

Wed, Apr 13 2011 02:11 | Permalink We call our same day edits the "Mad Dash" because we literally dash around like mad (behind the scenes of course) at your wedding, editing the ceremony and making sure everything is perfect to show your ceremony highlights at your reception.

Kathryn's mother and sister hired us for this as a complete surprise to the couple and everyone in the room! Once we were done and 110% satisfied with what we made for them, we were ready to show it! After dinner we started off by playing a photo montage of the two of them growing up, and then of them together. Just as the presentation came to what looked like an end, we surprised the crowd with beautiful shots of Kathryn & Nathan's wedding.

As we stood nervously in the back of the room a guest next to me was crying and laughing. I'm pretty sure she had no idea I was part of team behind the showing, but it cracked me up as she said "SHUT UP, OMG, is this live? Where is this coming from? How did they do this?" and then when it ended she said "OMG, Bob, you're totally hired for my wedding." I considered her tears and comment a major success on our part - thanks girl in the blue dress :)

Here is the same day edit or "Mad Dash" as it was shown on their wedding day. Thank you to Kathryn's mother and sister, Gloria and Gretchen, their incredibly helpful and patient coordinator, Jamie of Ever After Events and Laurel at Estancia for helping us make this magical moment happen for them.

Great Great Great job to their wedding video and mad dash team: Bob, Bryan and Jonathan!!!

p.s. The flowers you see in the ceremony are by Organic Elements, ceremony was officiated by Bob Stevens and the guitarist you see playing in the beginning is Joe Bigham of Bop Gun

Leica + Ryan | Bali Hai, San Diego

Wed, Apr 6 2011 02:47 | Permalink We met Leica at a Bridal Bazaar just two months before their wedding. When we met them in our office we were blown away by how nice they were and Bob was excited to work with them at the newly remodeled Bali Hai!

Their morning ceremony was bright and colorful, a really joyous occasion. The Barongs (traditional formal Filipino shirt) worn by the groomsmen looked great in the sunlight, accented by the purple of the bridesmaids dresses and flowers. They ended their celebration with a gorgeous dove release and boated off to their new life together :)

Thanks Leica and Ryan! Hope you enjoy your photo preview!

Leica, waiting to see her groom

I was blown away by these two photos of Leica. She looks amazing

Leica was actually named after a high end old school film camera! Her father enjoyed photography and loved the camera enough to name his daughter after it! Our photographer, Bryan has a Leica camera sticker on his iPhone....we thought it was an ironic coincidence.

Money Dancing!

San Diego Wedding Party Bridal Show

Tue, Mar 29 2011 04:42 | Permalink  San Diego Wedding Party Bridal Show at the Hard Rock Hotel this past Sunday was awesome! What a busy and fun show. We met with tons of awesome couples both at our booth and at the consult-a-thon, videotaped the fashion show, interviewed several vendors about their show experience and had some time to take a few photos too! Enjoy:
