Fairmont Grand Del Mar Wedding, Part One <br> Greg and Amelia

POSTED IN : Resort, Traditional, Weddings
FILED UNDER :

For every minute, every day, and every year that Greg and Amelia waited to find each other… it was all so incredibly worth it.

Greg and Amelia have poured themselves into their careers and their loved ones for a long time, but they wanted to find that person to share the little moments with. That person that just gets it.

So they waited patiently, they hoped deeply… and when they met, it didn’t take long for them to realize THIS was the person they’d been waiting for.

(And when Jeff and I spent more time with these lovebirds at their Rancho Santa Fe engagement session, we saw what they feel: that it just fits.)

When their wedding day finally came, Greg and Amelia wanted to soak in every moment. They wanted to spend as much time together as possible on their wedding day – because they didn’t want this long-awaited day to pass by in a blur.

So we did what we do best: we savored with them. Jeff took his time with Greg, I took my time with Amelia, and we slowed down every moment possible when they were together.

And my friends, it was a beauuuutiful thing!

Greg and Amelia chose to celebrate their wedding day at the gorgeous Fairmont Grand Del Mar, and every element of their wedding day was classic, classic, classic!

Merilee of EverAfter Events designed a breathlessly perfect day, and Amelia was a VISION in her classic wedding gown. SO gorgeous!

I’ll begin with the first half of their incredible day… just before the ceremony in the gorgeous  Capella Chapel at the Grand Del Mar (Jeff and I have total heart-eyes for this place! Take a peek at the ceremony in part two!)
