A Wedding at The Lodge at Torrey Pines with Crown Weddings

By, February 11, 2013

What appeals to us most is meeting couples in love, and designing a wedding that is the perfect reflection of who they are.

Throughout the wedding process, there are a lot of decisions to be made, and money to be spent. Our role is to help guide you effortlessly through the whole process, and connect you with vendors to suit your taste and pocketbook. Together, we put together a team of professionals who ensure that your wedding day is one to remember. We make sure that you are looked after, every detail is covered, and everyone is taken care of.

For the recent wedding of Maureen and Jon, we worked with Maureen to create a spectacular event at The Lodge at Torrey Pines.

Maureen really wanted to create a lush, stylish, fresh and vintage inspired wedding.

As part of her bridesmaids gifts, Maureen gave each of the ladies a cute custom wrap to lounge in while getting ready for the big day. What a great gift!

While getting ready at her parents’ beautiful home, the bride was very relaxed on the wedding day. Maureen looked absolutely stunning.

Meanwhile, the guys were also getting prepped for the big day. Really, how many men can tie a bow tie?  Luckily, all the groomsmen figured it out with a little help from the instructions manual. We love this photo!

The wedding party and guests headed over to the the gorgeous wedding ceremony, which was held at the Sacred Heart Church in Coronado. Everyone celebrated Mr. and Mrs. Buckley as they walked hand in hand down the aisle!

Following the ceremony, the wedding party made their way to La Jolla to take colorful beach photos. It was a warm and perfect San Diego day!

Being escorted in an Old Town Trolley was such a fun form of transportation to and from the ceremony. The Trolley also brought the bridal party to the beach, and to The Lodge at Torrey Pines.

On the lawn at The Lodge, guests enjoyed appetizers and delicious drinks during the cocktail hour. Maureen and Jon joined the guests after taking photos with the wedding party.

Gorgeous linens from La Tavola and lush florals from Splendid Sentiments made the ballroom at the Lodge feel cozy and inviting!

A planned surprise during the reception is always a highlight at a wedding. Maureen and the father of the bride surprised everyone by doing a hip hop routine in the middle of the father daughter dance, while sporting their Boston Red Sox hats!

The wedding was beautiful, and the couple had such a great time from start to finish, which was so evident in the images!

Funny Groomsmen Photo | Wedding at The Lodge at Torrey Pines | February 1, 2013

By, February 01, 2013

It’s Friday and we feel like laughing! For our photo of the week, we chose this hilarious photo from Maureen and Jon’s wedding day. It shows that in the final hours before the wedding, even the calmest grooms can get overwhelmed.

While the ladies were back in the bridal suite preparing for the wedding at The Lodge at Torrey Pines, the guys were also taking care of a little “business” in the park.

Just kidding! Even though everyone did a great job selling the shot, it was all an act.
