Crystal and Kevin celebrated their lovely summer wedding at the Hilton San Diego in Del Mar, adjacent to the Del Mar Fairgrounds and centrally located in San Diego County. Surrounded by their closest family and friends, they were married by Crystal’s grandfather and father in a very special ceremony on the outdoor ceremony venue, which was creatively decorated with beautiful purple drapery and purple flower vases. Other purple touches included the groom’s purple tie, and the purple ribbons encircling the bouquets. San Diego wedding photographer and San Diego Weddings of Distinction members, Amy and Maurice Wright of Theorie captured the couple’s wedding day celebration. Following the ceremony, the guests enjoyed cocktails on the lawn, while the bride and groom had their photos taken with their wedding party. Following their entrance to the reception the bride and danced their first dance. The bride wore a second, adorable, shorter cocktail dress to the reception that was perfect for dancing! Kevin’s SDSU hockey buddies toasted the couple and they all shared a hockey chant during the toasts. Everyone danced the night away before the couple cut their gorgeous wedding cake. Each of the bridesmaids’ bouquets and table centerpieces were decorated with a wedding inspired words like friendship, love, or cherish, inspired by Crystal’s love of words as a writer.
