When it comes to destination weddings, a place like La Jolla is hard to beat. When Erin + Anthony decided to return to her college town from their new home in Chicago to tie the knot, they knew exactly what venues would capture the essence of their dream wedding.
When you’re doing a destination wedding, you know your loved ones are making a sacrifice to get there. It’s super cool when couples have little welcome bags for their guests, showing their appreciation for their having come all that way to celebrate with them.
We love nostalgic touches. Erin’s mom had sewn a little bunny from her childhood blankie into her dress hem. Too precious! Anthony, by the way, proposed on Easter weekend of last year.
Even the littles need to carbo-load for the big show!
The Big Reveal! Check out Anthony’s expression (and reverse hand-grab) as he waits for their First Look!
There’s always time in the day for a laugh with Mom.
The ceremony took place at Mary, Star of the Sea just down the street from La Valencia.
It was like a reunion for this awesome group of friends, many of whose weddings and important events we’ve been privileged to capture!
They’re beaming, right?
Erin + Anthony, meanwhile, let us get some great shots of them overlooking La Jolla Shores.
As sunset lingered, we snuck out for a few snaps next to the mermaid statue overlooking La Jolla Cove.
We were so stoked to reunite with all these great folks, and join them for a picture to commemorate yet another amazing event! Thank you, Erin + Anthony, for continuing the tradition and allowing us to be included in your party!
