Michele and Chris had a beautiful La Jolla Cove Suites Wedding. The wedding ceremony was held on the venue’s rooftop. The view from the rooftop is breathtaking, it overlooks the La Jolla cove and out to the cliffs above Scripps. For Michele and Chirs the view from the La Jolla Cove Suites was particularly special, because the cliffside where Chris proposed would be in view just behind their ceremony archway. These two love birds decided to be traditional and get ready on opposite ends of the hotel, each having their own suite with a balcony to look out as they primped. Michele’s Longtime friend is a talented violinist. He began to play when it was time for the wedding ceremony to begin as flocks of pelicans lazily flew by over head. The weather for their wedding could not have been more perfect with a slight breeze and a few little white puffy clouds in the sky. Chris and Michele had one of their really good friends officiate the wedding for them, which is always a special touch that rinds close to our hearts. One of our favorite aspects of their ceremony was their anneversary wine box. They chose an amazing bottle of Tobin James red wine and placed a letter to sac other and two wine glasses in a beautiful wooden box. With all the items in they closed it and locked it with a key. On their fifth wedding anniversary they will finally unlock the box and enjoy the wine together. So romantic!
We have to say that Michele and Chris are two of the sweetest people we have had the pleasure of working with. Their families had some truly amazing speeches at their wedding reception and it was clear to us that Michele and Chris go out of their way to make sure everyone is happy and taken care of. We feel so lucky to be a part of their special day, and it has been wonderful getting to know them and their amazing families better. This was a group that loved to have fun and the dancing just never seemed to stop. It was a pleasure capturing their wedding day for them. Check below for all the Vendor information.
