Karen and Rodger’s commitment to supporting local artists and including personal artistic elements touched nearly every aspect of their San Diego wedding. The couple commissioned San Diego Weddings of Distinction wedding photographers and artists Amy and Maurice Wright of Theorie to capture the wedding day in their well-known colorful and modern fashion. The couple also brought in local flamenco guitarist and fellow San Diego Weddings of Distinction member, Anthony Garcia, to entertain guests before the ceremony and throughout the cocktail hour. A talented musician, Garcia’s playing perfectly matched the European inspired atmosphere of the wedding location, Azul Restaurant in La Jolla. The bride and groom chose additional local and non-local artists to provide hair and makeup, custom jewelry design for their engagement and wedding rings, the bride’s wedding dress, the hand died groomsmen’s silk ties and boutonnieres, the silk flower corsages and hair accents for the bride and bridesmaids, and wedding invitations. The bride, an artist herself, created the place settings as well as the little flower petal boxes place on chairs at the ceremony. She even painted a portrait of the couple for the guests to sign at the reception. The images created by Theorie perfectly reflect the vibrant colors and artistic details of Karen and Rodger’s San Diego wedding.
