Grand Del Mar Wedding, Part One
CJ and Elizabeth
We knew that CJ and Elizabeth’s wedding day would have all of the elements we adore about our #TYweddings… timeless style, meaningful traditions, and so many emotional, holy-wow-this-love-is-deep moments.
CJ and Elizabeth are a beautiful couple inside AND out (Jeff and I have been head-over-Youngren-heels for them since their engagement session in Balboa Park!), so Jeff and I just knew everything would be amazing.
But it’s safe to say that their wedding day at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar was TOTALLY beyond our expectations!
It was SO rich with dreamy goodness that our classic-loving photographer hearts were nearly bursting!
CJ & Liz chose the Grand Del Mar because of its timeless, traditional vibe, and could envision all of their magical wedding day moments happening here…
They could see their guests enjoying a perfect San Diego evening out on Aria Lawn, dancing to the Mariachi music, and surrounding them in love. And just as he had predicted, the moment when CJ saw his stunning bride walk down the aisle in the Capella Chapel was the most magical, and so full of happy tears (for both them and their families!).
Eeek! I can’t wait – let’s dig into Part One!
