Posts Tagged ‘Hotel Del Coronado’

This LA couple traveled down to San Diego to say ‘I Do’ in front of the iconic Hotel Del Coronado. On a beautiful breezy summer day, these two thought of everything to make their guests feel included and welcome, even supplying just the right footwear for the beach wedding ceremony.

Wedding Coordinator extraordinaire Susie Mintie had it all in hand and everything went smoothly thanks to her expert guidance.

To one of the most generous, kind and downright happiest couples I’ve had the pleasure to marry, Congratulations Mike & Kyle!

Lisa and Garrett’s August wedding at the Hotel Del Coronado combined the sophistication of that beautiful venue infused with celebrating Aussie-style.
The Australian bride’s family traveled all the way to San Diego. Except for Dad, who wasn’t able to make it, but was hooked in via Skype!

I loved working with this couple, and had a blast with Lisa, who taught me the correct pronunciation of “Aussie.” and introduced me to Australian treat – TimTams. yum!

Laptop was set up on a bellyhigh table so that the bride's father in Australia could hear his daughter say, "I do"

Hilary Medovich with the Del was fantastic to work with – she made everything so easy.
As did DJ Kelley. From the moment the music started, the dance floor was never empty.
And great as always to work with Mark Hillis – once again records it all beautifully with incredible and creative photography.
