I met Katie and Freddy last year for their engagement session and had the most amazing time capturing their love story. I could not wait for their wedding day!
They are from back east and decided that San Diego was the perfect location for friends and family to celebrate their wedding. And even though they live near a beach, they said the San Diego beaches are just that much better.
Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa was the first venue they visited, and they instantly fell in love. They loved the beautiful mission style architecture, the gardens and lawns throughout the property, and of course the big ballroom for their reception. They also got extremely lucky because their wedding coordinator Korie Younger from Bliss Events was married there last year and knows the property intimately.
There were many special touches that Katie and Freddy had throughout the day, but the one that will stick in my mind forever was the sixpence from Katie’s grandmother. Her mom slipped the coin into her shoe before the ceremony for good luck. It was a very emotional and magical moment for them.
