Balboa Park Wedding at Saint Francis Chapel and The Prado

By, June 15, 2012

At Saint Francis Chapel and the San Diego Museum of Man, we love helping couples create a memorable experience that they can share with their loved ones for the rest of their lives.

We were honored to be a part of Jessica and Francis’ Balboa Park wedding.  This theatrical bride and groom became husband and wife at the Saint Francis Chapel. After the ceremony, the wedding commenced a few hundred yards away at The Prado!

My favorite moment of the day was watching the groom’s face as the bride stepped into the Chapel. Because we have a secluded bridal suite, it’s truly a surprise for the groom when she enters.

The affection shared between Jessica and her niece in this quiet moment just after the ceremony is beautiful.

Balboa Park at night can be breathtaking! This photo captures Saint Francis Chapel in the background and looks like a page out of a fairytale book! I love the dramatic lighting, and the contrast of Jessica’s dress with the rich sky.

The smile on Jessica’s face in this photo says it all – it conveys everything a newly-married bride should feel!

Jessica and Francis were so original. Their sense of style and fun made for an evening that felt like a Hollywood party.
