What are the most important things that LGBT couples should consider when planning their wedding?

I think this is very market specific. In San Diego, the date and time are the most important considerations for our San Diego LGBT Beach Weddings. Coastal locations are less busy or more busy, depending on the day of the week, time of day, and time of year. We have tons of experience working at the beaches, coastal parks and cliffs in San Diego and can help couples choose the best location, based on each couple's specific vision.

In your opinion, what are the main benefits to getting married?
Having the legal right to formally express and affirm your love and commitment for each other would be at the top of the list!

Once an LGBT couple decides to get married, what should their next steps be?
  • Choose a wedding date or dates
  • Determine your budget
  • Decide on style / size of wedding... large, small and intimate, casual, formal, reception hall or restaurant
  • Decide on location... beach, park, backyard, resort, golf course, church
  • Search for gay-friendly vendors

Do you have any advice for LGBT couples planning their wedding?
Just have fun and don't stress too much about the details! It doesn't have to be perfect and you don't have to make everyone else happy. Embrace the wedding planning process and hire someone with experience to help, if it is in your budget, follow your heart and enjoy the celebration of your commitment to each other!

Top Wedding Photographers in San Diego!

I think everyone will agree that your wedding photos may be one of the most important aspects of the wedding experience. Although I’ve always appreciated art, I don’t have some nostalgic story about being passionate about photography since I was 5 years old. I actually didn’t discover my love of the camera until planning my own wedding so many years ago. As I reviewed each photographer's portfolio, I realized the power and importance of great photography that captures every element of an event... the emotions, the celebration, the exquisite detail and the spectacle... and the unexpected!

It is my love of photography and experience behind the camera that has given me the opportunity to work beside some of the best photographers in San Diego. As a result, I have hand-picked an award-winning team of creative photo artists that work on our Southern California seaside beach wedding packages.

We know just how much time you have spent envisioning and planning your dream wedding. Your wedding photos are the lasting component of your wedding experience and my professional photographers will capture your entire event as it unfolds.

san diego wedding photographer photojournalist Don't Trust your Precious Memories to Anyone Else! While San Diego seaside weddings and barefoot beach elopements are our specialty, we also love doing modern portraiture for the other exciting seasons in life that we experience.  I am so thankful for the opportunity to document each couple, each wedding, each family…it means I’ve been able to be constantly surrounded by precious moments and meaningful relationships. It’s always a great reminder that it’s the moments, not things, that move us. It’s those moments that we will capture... so you can remember.

Enough about us... we want to hear all about you and your love story... and how we can create the memories that will last a lifetime!

Dog-Friendly San Diego Beach Weddings! Woof!

Your San Diego Puppy Love Beach Wedding Experts!  We understand that pets are people, too, and we welcome your canine companions to join in the fun as you exchange your wedding vows on a San Diego beach at sunset!. Our Elope in San Diego and full-service Classic wedding packages can be easily customized to include man's best friend. Shoreline parks, toes in the sand and ocean front wedding sites... so many beautiful San Diego locations to choose from. Let us help you find the perfect pet-friendly location to express your love for each other and your pups!

The #1 Rule for a Dog-Friendly Wedding Is to Stay Flexible and Have Fun! A go-with-the-flow attitude will go a long way when including animals in the mix. Like children, your pup's behavior may be unpredictable, and being able to laugh about it will help you stay relaxed, having fun and looking great in your photos!

Coronado Dog Beach Weddings & Elopements!

A San Diego beach wedding with your dogs can be fun, rewarding and unique experience for both pets and their owners! We are San Diego's Puppy Love Experts and are happy to share some helpful tips to help keep your dog-friendly beach wedding stress-free and fun for everyone!
  1. Relax, laugh alot and have fun!
  2. Don't forget the doggie treats.
  3. Assign a human escort for your dog who will be responsible for your pet's care before, during and after the ceremony.
  4. A wedding can be a long, stimulating event and can elicit uncharacteristic behavior. Take your dog for a walk and bathroom break before the ceremony to help her stay relaxed during the ceremony. Remind your doggie's caregiver to watch for signs of anxiety -- barking, pacing, drooling, and whining -- which may indicate your pup has had enough, and may need a break from the excitement.
  5. Keep your pet's wardrobe simple. A sparkly bow tie collar, hair clip or bandana can add a festive touch without the risk of itching or chewing.
  6. Be sensitive to your guests. Just because you love your dog doesn’t mean your guests will. Some individuals, including vendors, may be allergic to or scared of your pet. You want all your guests to leave with fond memories of your big day so be sure to inform everyone ahead of time that the wedding will be pet-friendly.
Deciding to have a dog-friendly San Diego beach wedding can be a fun, memorable event or a "paws-itively" poor choice depending on guests, wedding location  and your pet’s personality. Your wedding is a celebration of your love and the start of your new life together. With a little forethought and planning your dog can be part of the fun. Woof!
