High School Sweethearts Celebrate Their Forever at a Coronado Wedding

Crystal and Mario are the quintessential high school sweethearts. They have been together for 15 years having both attended Monte Vista High School in Spring Valley, California where the pair fell in love and started the journey of a lifetime as mere teenagers. Until the day came when Mario realized that he couldn't spend another day not married to his best friend and decided to propose at sunset at one of their favorite beaches in San Diego, of course!

Their family and friends were ecstatic to celebrate their wedding day. Even their beloved dog, Scooter, was a groomsman (and you know how we feel about dogs!) Check out this lovely featured wedding with Crystal's chosen palette of plums, blues and lavender tones and a seriously adorable flower girl and ring bearer and yes.... they had us at 'dog groomsman'. 

This wedding was nothing short of the extravagant celebration the patient duo deserved. Crystal and Mario rang in their new life together at the gorgeous Coronado Community Center and what a celebration it was!

An intimate destination wedding shines as bright as the Coronado Beach sun

We just love this charming, love-filled, 'micro destination' wedding on Coronado Beach. Photographer Brit Jaye really captured the family's love and connection and made us wish we had been a guest with our toes in the sand, looking out to the sun kissed waters, our eyes filled with tears of joy, at this intimate celebration of love pulled together by family right on the beautiful beaches of Coronado.

Anna & Hadley tied the knot at their beautiful San Diego beach wedding on Saturday afternoon. The tide was low, perfect for some romantic portraits of the bride & groom by the ocean shore before the ceremony. Coronado Beach is an absolutely perfect wedding ceremony location. These two lovebirds planned their destination wedding in San Diego from Utah, and they really picked a gorgeous place to say ‘I do’! Friends and family made the trip from Utah to help co create the wedding [flowers and all!] and to be with the couple when they said ‘I do’ at their intimate beach wedding ceremony. Anna wore a beautiful vintage inspired wedding dress that was custom made for the occasion. Her flower crown made by her mother and seahorse earrings were the perfect details to finish her look.  Anna was escorted to her groom by her son (age 3). Her father, a clergyman, performed the loving seaside ceremony.
