We caught up with Emily to recap her wedding to Paul at St. Joseph’s Cathedral in downtown San Diego. They followed up the ceremony with a contemporary reception at the Scripps Forum. Check out a few of the images we captured of the gorgeous couple, and see what Emily had to say about their big day:
Meghan of True Photography: Thanks for taking the time to answer a few questions about your wedding for our blog! I’m interested to know what was most important to you and Paul when planning your wedding?
Emily (Bride): We didn’t want our wedding to feel “typical” or manufactured. We wanted the focus to remain on marriage, the whole purpose of the day, and not to get lost on all the things that become insignificant once the event is over, like party favors and material things.
Meghan of True Photography: If you had to choose, what would you say was your most memorable moment from your wedding day?
Emily (Bride): Being at the altar. Ironically, that was when were all alone, just the two of us, up there with the priest. It was really surreal and special. All the hand squeezes and sideways glances that no one else could see or know about. That is special and still stands out to me.
Meghan of True Photography: You were such a beautiful bride and we absolutely loved photographing you and Paul. Can you tell us what your experience was like working with True Photography?
Emily (Bride): True Photography was great. If I could describe the experience I would say “easy and efficient”. We wanted to be able to enjoy a little bit of the cocktail hour with our guests, and Mike made that happen, without sacrificing photos we wanted. The pictures truly captured the essence of the event.
