Scripps Seaside Forum Wedding | Angela & Kyle

By, May 27, 2016

Angela and Kyle were married at the Scripps Seaside Forum, a beautiful venue that hugs the shores of La Jolla, California. They chose this location because they are die-hard San Diego fans, and wanted to give their guests (especially the out-of-towners) a great feel for ‘America’s Finest City’. As you can imagine, there were some pretty amazing backdrops throughout the wedding day.

While photographing, we captured a nice variety of photos with Scripps Seaside Forum in the composition, helping to tell the story of the day. We always make sure to incorporate the venue in an artistic way, like the photo above.

In the photo below, we placed Angela’s Jimmy Choo shoes in the bright sun, which brought out their maximum brilliance. The blue sky and leading lines in the background gave extra attention to these amazing kicks :)

Kyle has a fun-loving personality and a great smile. It was important for us to bring out these qualities in the photos… as well as his love for the San Diego Padres (below).

Before the ceremony, the couple got ready at the nearby Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines, an upscale resort overlooking the legendary Torrey Pines Golf Course. Scouting this location beforehand allowed us to find this epic spot for the first look. We photographed from a distance so Angela and Kyle could have a quiet moment together.

Angela and Kyle had a huge bridal party, which is not surprising, considering how fun-loving and inviting they are. It was very important for them to have ALL of their closest friends stand by them on their big day. We were more than ready to direct traffic and come up with many configurations for this large group!

Angela and Kyle’s ceremony was officiated by their Pastor, Shawn Kennedy of Existence Church.

For the photo below, we placed our camera on an extended tripod, resulting in this cool angle.

We know how much thought and effort goes into the wedding details, and look for ways to incorporate them into the photos.

When he and Angela first started talking about getting married, Kyle mentioned that he envisioned a full-on sports themed wedding. Angela pretended to be ok with it until they got engaged, when she extinguished those plans…or so Kyle thought! As a surprise, Angela managed to sneak in fun baseball touches throughout the day.

Love 101 | Scripps Seaside Forum Wedding

By, March 04, 2015

Some people meet their soulmates in college, while others find each other later in life. Fortunately for Jacqueline and Ross, they both attended UCSD at the same time. With fate on their side, these two crossed paths, and began their life together.

When it came time to plan the wedding, this sweet couple decided to wed in the city where love blossomed – La Jolla.  Their venue of choice was Scripps Seaside Forum, which is fitting because it is an extension of UCSD’s campus. Let us take you on a journey throughout their day with the images we captured!

The couple tied the knot at Mary Star of the Sea, a Catholic church situated in the heart of La Jolla.

Following the ceremony, guests traveled down the road to Scripps Seaside Forum for the outdoor cocktail hour. To take advantage of the fabulous weather, we photographed portraits on the beach, and all around the property. It’s hard to tell that this wedding took place in January – it was sunny and in the seventies!

After cocktail hour, the party moved to the Scripps auditorium, where Jacqueline and Ross made their first appearance as husband and wife. To the delight of family and friends, the couple went straight into a spirited first dance. Not long after, guests were feasting on a scrumptious sit-down dinner, enjoying sentimental speeches, and being entertained by the father-daughter and mother-son dances.

As the sun set, the energy picked up. Everyone was out on the dance floor, showing off their skills. The most memorable move was Ross’s garter retrieval near the end of the night! ;)
