The Lodge at Torrey Pines Wedding | Andrew and Shannon

A traditional and meaningful ceremony. An enchanted garden reception. A picture perfect celebration designed by Emily Smiley Fine Weddings.

It was a picture perfect setting. Guests enjoyed dinner and toasting beneath linen draped canopies while watching the pink sunset fade away over the rolling hills of the golf course that disappeared into the endless blue of the pacific ocean beyond. In fact, everything about Shannon and Andrew’s day was picture perfect. The gorgeous venue, the breathtaking church, and the lovely couple. It just couldn’t get any better.

And beneath the visually stunning setting was their incredible hearts. They said ‘I do’ in the church at the University of San Diego, the place where Shannon and Andrew met and have a long history of family legacy, and we stopped by the sanctuary where Andrew said goodbye to his father many years ago, so Andrew and Shannon could savor his memory on their wedding day. They honored their parents, laughed with their siblings, and cherished their friends.

Shannon and Andrew are simply picture perfect people because of their picture perfect hearts.

Their wedding at The Lodge at Torrey Pines reflected everything about these two wonderful people. Emily Smiley and her team at Platinum Pro designed and coordinated a breathtaking reception on the lawn overlooking the world class golf course.
