Featured: The Knot Southern California <br>Jeff & Kelsey’s Hotel Del Coronado Wedding

POSTED IN : Press & Features, Weddings

We have such exciting news to share about one of our most exciting couples and their delightfully exciting wedding (can you tell we’re EXCITED). Jeff and Kelsey’s oh-so-bright and cheery beach wedding at the Hotel Del Coronado is featured with a big ‘ol double spread in the current issue of The Knot Southern California Magazine! The magazine just hit newsstands, and we’ve been waiting on pins and needles for the issue to arrive like two kids waiting to duke it out for a bag of lollipops.

The scene at Casa de Youngren:

Jeff and Erin crawl lifelessly through the front door at midnight after 42 hours of travel home from New Zealand.

Erin spies the magazine lying on the dining table. She squeals.

Life suddenly springs back into Jeff’s eyes at the sight of the magazine. He rushes to the table.

Erin perceives his movements. ‘Accidently’ drops her 30 pound pack on Jeff’s foot and intercepts. She’s laughs mercilessly.

Erin snatches the magazine and turns away from Jeff so he doesn’t see the feature before she does.

Jeff limps to the table and slowly picks up a second copy of the magazine. The Knot was kind enough to send four.

 As you can see by our enthusiasm, this feature was much anticipated by The Youngren household and it definitely didn’t disappoint! Make sure to pick up your copy of The Knot Southern California to check out Jeff and Kelsey’s gorgeous Hotel Del Coronado wedding!
