San Diego beach wedding on Coronado Island
When you think of a beach wedding in San Diego there is possibly nowhere more iconic to say I Do, than on the sand outside the Hotel Del Coronado. Jesse and Mia celebrated their wedding day with close family and friends in the middle of August and had a small, beautiful wedding on the coastline along Coronado Island. From reading their vows to one another overlooking the downtown skyline, to running along the massive sand dunes at sunset, their wedding was a dream, take a look at a few from their day.
If you are in the wedding planning stages and searching for ideas on what to do for your wedding, we highly encourage taking a look at all of the different options there are! From the nearby mountain ranges to the most beautiful open coastlines in the world, California has it all! Being from San Diego we love this stretch of the Southern California coastline and love Jesse and Mia’s idea to have a small beach wedding in San Diego. Coronado, although touristy, offers such a unique vibe and is surprisingly very mellow compared to local spots such as La Jolla and Mission Beach. Coronado offers a laid back, upscale east coast type setting and is perfect for small weddings on the beach in California which we highly recommend!
As local San Diego wedding photographers we have been privileged to work with some of the most amazing wedding planners in San Diego as well as top wedding venues in San Diego, however there is nothing we love more than a casual wedding with your close family and friends to celebrate your wedding. We love being able to be a part of such an important moment in a couples lives and celebrating that intimate moment in a different setting that is special to you guys is simply amazing. Today there are so many creative ideas and plenty of companies that offer rentals that cater to remote locations, if having a destination wedding or elopement inspires you and looking for somewhat of a different idea than the traditional wedding, you should go for it! It is your day and will only occur once. As mentioned, if you are a nature fanatic and love the outdoors such as the mountains, why not choose a wedding under the sequoias? A fan of the vast open desert? With endless miles of desert and cacti take advantage of nearby places like Mojave Desert or Death Valley! Guests that are there to support you will find a way to make it to your wedding, and will look back and say wow, that was pretty incredible. Those that push the limits are the ones that stick out, and after shooting so many weddings throughout California, we find the same can be said about an epic ceremony and reception party. So, if you are in the beginning stages of planning your wedding, and still trying to decide on what your dream wedding looks like, we would love to talk ideas and see if we can help with suggestions! Enjoy one of the most fun times in your life, and let it be just that... FUN!!!
