San Diego Courthouse Wedding

Jared + Anne

Jared and Anne had a beautiful San Diego Courthouse wedding in March, and I was extremely lucky to document it. 

From the moment I met with the couple, in my office, I knew that I was the right person to photograph their wedding. They wanted a laid back wedding, with only their closest family and friends, and they were very excited to chat about their special day.

I arrived at Jared and Anne’s home early afternoon, and they were both getting ready together. Even though they had a really casual atmosphere, they were both very enthusiastic about the day. 

The couple live in Little Italy, so the idea of an intimate, San Diego courthouse wedding sounded great. Before we started the walk to the wedding ceremony, we decided to hit a few locations around their condo for some portraits. Because it’s a part of town that most of the buildings have been recently remodeled, so we were able to find a few interesting locations.

After arriving at the courthouse, we had some legal business to take care. The couple signed the marriage license, and we headed to the courtyard, for a very quick ceremony, witnessed only by their best friends and closest family.

I had some time to spend with the couple before they had to meet their guests at the happy hour, so we decided to take a little walk around Little Italy, and hit Balboa Park, for some more portraits. Jared and Anne seemed to be having a great time, and were really cherishing their wedding day.

It was time to take Jared and Anne back to their guests. We headed back to The U.S Grant hotel, where the recently married couple had some drinks with their loved ones.

The wedding reception was the next day, and it was an atypical rainy day in San Diego. It happened in the gorgeous new space in Little Italy, the Herb and Wood Restaurant. Bride and groom enjoyed their time with their loved ones, laughing with their guests the entire time. And, of course, they found time to take a few more portraits inside the industrial looking location. 

I would like to thank Jared and Anne for having me as a part of their beautiful wedding. It was one of my favorite San Diego courthouse weddings to date, and I’m very honored to have documented it.
