What was the most memorable moment of your day?
The fireworks on the beach going off immediately following the speeches was pretty cool, the food was awesome, everyone had fun dancing. At the end of the night we went for a walk on the beach with a few friends which was pretty neat. I can’t really point to one thing, the whole day was just perfect.
Any advice for future bride/grooms?
Eliminate as much stress as possible by keeping things simple and not worrying too much about details. Trust professionals to do their job, that’s why you hired them. Hire a day of coordinator, it’s totally worth it. I also personally was very glad we kept our guest list small, everyone present was a good friend and I had time to spend quality time with everyone.
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
Beyond the fact that San Diego was having a record setting heatwave, no, everything was pretty perfect.
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We stayed in Coronado, and it was the best decision ever. After the wedding, all I wanted to do was relax. Having to travel somewhere else would have been stressful. And Coronado is beautiful, so why go anywhere else.
