Diana & Lorenzo’s exquisite, ornate wedding in September at the local island paradise Bahia Resort & Hotel on San Diego’s Mission Bay was a day of elegant glamour and gleaming romance. As guests made their way to the beautiful secluded tropical garden ceremony, Diana & Lorenzo’s first look at each other said it all. With irresistible smiles, endearing kisses and a natural affection rooted in love, everyone could see it, but most of all feel it. As they concluded the Hand Ceremony with their families symbolizing the unity of their pasts and new family bonds, and said “I Do” under the lush leaves and fronds of cascading palm trees, they began their new journey together hand in hand down the aisle, surrounded by the floating bubbles and endless smiles sent their way from their friends and loved ones. As the reception began, features including a live pianist, a decorated table of cherished childhood memories and loved ones, glittering crystal chandeliers and endless glasses of champagne filled the room as guests danced the night away in the grand ballroom. A day and night of romance and sparkle, we are so happy we were able to capture this memorable day for our bride and groom. It was a pleasure working with wedding coordinator Gina Hundley of San Diego Weddings by Gina, DJ Richard Wayne and the incredible venue and event staff of the Bahia Resort & Hotel in making this day one to remember!
