    jah regala - hallo! just commenting to say i did all three. pick me!– my fiance and i are fun, i swear. lol =)ReplyCancel

Gianne and Brian’s wedding day is one I will never forget. There are many reasons… one, because it was probably the hottest day in June (record breaking heat over 100 degrees) in San Diego county and two, they have a rad wedding date which is June 19. If you’re a local San Diegan, you know that this is the area code of our city. But one big reason I’ll always remember this day is the love and bond they have for each other and their families.

I believe Gianne is my “crafty” sister and is obsessed with DIY’ing things like I am. As I followed her Instagram, I would get excited seeing her creativity come to life AND also the fact that her family would help with said projects.

If you saw their engagement session I posted, they put a lot of emphasis not only on their relationship, but the memory of their fathers and their love for their family. Because I am Filipino myself, I understand the importance of family and loved that they shared this during their wedding.

Now on to the good stuff….

Rhea and Zooie are one of the sweetest couples I had the honor of working with. They both are from the Los Angeles area and decided to celebrate their union in our beautiful city of San Diego.


The couple got ready at a nearby hotel and we headed to the North Chapel and Admiral Kidd to spend the rest of their day celebrating.
