San Diego Featured Wedding: a Lovely Church Affair Shines with Family, Love and Mexican Traditions

Jeff and Susana Smith both held one thing to a high standard when planning their wedding-- their family. There are many, many factors that go into wedding planning (as you may have already figured out), but family was the one that the two agreed upon should be held at the utmost importance. Susana had just recently lost both her parents, so her brother stepped in to give her away.  With her in spirit, Susana's parents were kept very close to her throughout the wedding. She had their pictures sewn into her bouquet. Her dress was also custom designed and hand made by her family's business in Mexico. After the ceremony, family and friends joined the happy couple for a reception dinner in Old Town Historic Park to capture the love in photos with a traditional Spanish rustic backdrop. Susana's daughter was also in the mix as her Maid of Honor. On the other side of the aisle, Jeff asked his son to be his Best Man. Be sure to check out this truly family affair resplendent with spirit, joyful yellow florals and details and tradition.
