Tim & Jessica’s Mt. Woodson Castle Wedding

Tim and Jessica like to keep it simple. But, on their Mt. Woodson Castle wedding, they made it beautiful.

I had a great time strolling thru Ocean Beach and Balboa Park for Tim and Jessica’s engagement session. I was extremely excited for their upcoming  Mt. Woodson Castle wedding, and October couldn’t arrive fast enough.

The day started with Jessica and her friends getting ready for the wedding in the castle’s bridal suite. Mostly from out of town, they were eager to help the bride with anything she needed. Tim and his groomsmen were casually putting on their suits in the room next-door, while having a few beers.

When bride and groom were ready, we headed to the front of the castle, where we decided to dothe first look. Tim was anxious, but it all went away after he saw how beautiful Jessica looked on her wedding dress. One of my favorite things from Mt. Woodson Castle weddings is being able to incorporate the castle architecture in the background of some photos.

It was a beautiful ceremony at Mt Woodson lower lawn. The oak trees and the sun setting made it for a breathtaking background. Their family and close friends witnessed Jessica and Tim exchange vows and rings under the trees. They both walked out of the aisle with huge smiles on their faces. 

The celebration proceeded to cocktail hour, while I stole the couple for a few portraits around the property. We enjoyed some great lighting coming from behind the oak trees, and created some timeless images together.

The speeches were filled with great memories, brought by their closest friends and family members. After dinner, the party finally moved to inside the castle. Lots of dancing, and a piñatawith the word “LOVE” was definitely the highlight of the evening!

I would like to thank Jessica and Tim for trusting me the job of photographing them during such a special moment. Along with their friends and family, they were a joy to work with in every step of this journey.
