Not only are Summer and Stuart a magazine-worthy, gorgeous couple… they are the sweetest, perfectly goofy couple. Their wedding was stunning from beginning to end, and I feel so truly honored to have been a part of it. I’ll admit I struggled putting this blog post together, but only because from the 1100 final photos, I first narrowed it down to 275 top favorites! Then, ultimately found a way to select 117 to share with you here.
In August, my hubby, daughter, and I hopped on a plane for beautiful San Diego (Charlotte’s first flight!). For me, there’s an extra level of excitement and anticipation whenever I get to photograph a destination wedding and even more so when I’ve never met the couple. What a thrill! Although with all our pre-wedding chats and coordinating, when the time came to meet Summer and Stuart, I felt like we were old friends. I tagged along for some casual photos of their rehearsal and then snapped a few of their beautifully decorated rehearsal dinner. Their venue, Paradise Point Resort, offered breathtaking views at every turn. The huge resort makes you feel like you’ve traveled to a remote island!
A giant congratulations to Summer and Stuart!!! Wishing you both soooooooo much happiness and continued laughter.
((The fantastic list of creative vendors is at the end of the post)).
These photos below perfectly sum up what a fun couple Summer and Stuart are. While snapping away, I say, “look up” and this is what I got. Through my laughter, I correct myself and say, “no… look down”… they clearly win a modeling award for following directions.
