Amanda and Justin’s Hilton and Ultimate Skybox Wedding Day

This beautiful and fun couple describe themselves as “Two peas in a pod” and it couldn’t’ be more true.   They met at a friend’s party and they were both drawn to each other’s energy from the get go and it didn’t take long for the two of them to become what they like to call their “my forever +1”. They both love food, traveling, a little competition, laughing… and most of all family. And they couldn’t wait to bring all of their closest friends and family to downtown San Diego to celebrate their big day.  Their day started at Hotel Indigo, everyone was a buzz getting ready and anticipating their first look on the Terrace balcony overlooking Petco Park. After a toast with their entourages, a few photos with their fur baby and some special gifts, Amanda and Justin had their first reveal, finally getting to see each other as a bride and a groom.  Everyone then headed to the Promenade at Hilton Bayfront for their ceremony on the lawn overlooking the San Diego bay.  After their special vows, a tree planting ceremony and officially tying the knot, they were sent off with a bubble exit and a group photo as their reception continued at the Ultimate Skybox.  Guests enjoyed the vast views of San Diego in all directions and as the sun went down, the celebration kicked off with special dances, toasts, an array of fun food stations and sweets.  Then everyone kicked off their shoes and danced the night away!  It was so amazing to see this couple start this next new exciting chapter together!

LeeAnna and Jake's Wedding Day

Ah, LeeAnna and Jake... where do we start with this fabulous down to earth fun-loving couple and their dream wedding day...

(and it seems serendipitous to us that their wedding is the first we have posted since the pandemic began in 2020.)

 

Words at this point don't necessarily have to be spoken anymore to share the emotions and patience that 2020 required from the world.

We very much recall all the conversations with couples as the news hit about shutdowns and specifically remember talking to LeeAnna and Jake 60 days out from their original June 2020 wedding date and all of us coming to terms with the fact that another year of waiting seemed inevitable. LeeAnna and Jake focused their energies together on enduring this journey with the hopes that one day their dream would come to fruition... in the words of the bride, there were a lot of lows with very little highs during the shifts and pivots of COVID-19.

Patience prevailed...

To witness them celebrating with their family and friends was like watching a dream come true.

What we would have taken for granted pre-pandemic magnified the fact that their wedding day was here.

This journey we have all been through is a personal one and left us feeling amiss and made it hard to share any "highs" we may have experienced through a global pandemic.

Jake and LeeAnna's wedding day meant as much to us as it meant to them!

A true symbol that love is the strongest bond and if you can hold on tight and never let go of your dreams, there is a rainbow on the other side.

Congrats Mr and Mrs Thompson, you are one of a kind and we will always remember the laughter, joy and DANCING that you never for a moment took for granted.
