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.

Angie and Paul were married in San Diego at the Prado at Balboa Park. The couple hired Theorie photographers Amy and Maurice Wright to provide professional photography for their wedding. The ceremony was held at the Prado’s picturesque outdoor garden terrace, the perfect venue for their summer wedding. The reception was held in the Loggia Room, one of the Prado’s more intimate banquet rooms, which features an adjacent outdoor patio where guests enjoyed the cocktail hour. Though the couple lives in San Diego, it was a destination wedding for many of the friends and family, who traveled to San Diego from as far away as Hawaii, Florida, Ohio and North Carolina. Something fun that Angie and Paul do for each other for birthday presents is to give each other an activity they can do together, like whale watching … or first dance lessons! And as Paul would leave soon after the wedding for an overseas deployment with the California Army National Guard, learning to dance together was some extra special time they could spend together.
Paul left for deployment soon after the wedding. As Angie wrote in a note to Amy and Maurice upon viewing the wedding photographs together for the first time, “It meant a lot that we got to look at our pictures together before he left.” The photography beautifully captured their celebration, including all of the special and memorable moments, flowers and other wedding decorations, plus the essential portrait photography to complete the photos.
