Bali Hai Tropical Wedding – Part 2

You met Jacqueline and Ann in our previous post. This amazing couple called us for help planning their tropical San Diego wedding from Los Angeles.  They wanted to incorporate everything they love into their special day – so we found a way to include their fur babies as well as Muppets. The result was a playful wedding filled with personality and lots of joy!

The flowers by Flowers of Point Loma established the purple and white tropical color theme.

Tropical Wedding at Bali Hai

I am so blessed to have met Jacqueline and Ann. The couple was planning a San Diego wedding from Los Angeles and needed a local planner to help with the details. They had done a great job of selecting vendors to create a tropical paradise for their wedding. What I love most about this couple – besides their big personalities and love of laughter – is that they were concerned not so much with the look of the wedding, but about ensuring the wedding reflected their lives and their love for each other. By incorporating their three fur babies and their love of everything Muppets, this wedding could belong to no other couple than Jax and Ann. The perfect day was captured by Boffo Video.

Colorful Cambodian Wedding Celebration at Bahia Resort

If you are planning two wedding ceremonies and a reception for one day, you definitely want your couple to be as sweet and easy-going as Marlina and Richard. This gorgeous couple wanted a traditional Cambodian wedding ceremony to honor the bride’s heritage as well as a Christian ceremony. San-Diego-Wedding-Photography-17

The day started with the Cambodian ceremony. The couple looked like royalty in their colorful and detailed silk clothing. In the Cambodian tradition, the groom processed with his family and friends to meet his bride with an offering of platters of fruits and desserts. Once the offering was accepted by the bride and her family, the ceremony continued with a ring exchange, multiple blessings and music. There were multiple outfit changes, each more elaborate and beautiful than the next. San-Diego-Wedding-Photography-22San-Diego-Wedding-Photography-14  San-Diego-Wedding-Photography-18San-Diego-Wedding-Photography-21San-Diego-Wedding-Photography-24 San-Diego-Wedding-Photography-33 San-Diego-Wedding-Photography-50After the Cambodian wedding ceremony, the couple began preparing for their Christian ceremony to take place at the pond and gazebo at the Bahia Resort.
