The Prado at Balboa Park Wedding – Christine + Alex

The Prado at Balboa Park is a National Historic Landmark and offers a gorgeous setting for weddings.  On a November day, it was beautiful out with mild temperatures and clear skies.  This day was the day that Christine Garver and Alex Maggio were set to say their vows and proclaim their love for each other. They met in college at Yale and they chose one of the most popular venues in San Diego to host their wedding.  The beautiful bride, Christine, is an up and coming actress who has starred in episodes of The Mentalist, Criminal Minds, Dexter and several episodes of Mad Men. Alex the cool groom, is a recent graduate from UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television as a playwright. I’m excited to follow their career and see where it takes them.

The Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel Wedding – Sandra + Wayne

Not much can top a Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel Wedding.  The hotel is amazing!  It was so beautiful all the way around with spectacular views of the Pacific ocean.  Back in 2007, I had the privilege of photographing Wayne’s sisters wedding, so when he called to tell me he was engaged to Sandra and asked me to photograph his wedding, I jumped right at it!  I was very excited and what a way to see old friends.  Both Sandra and Wayne are attorneys in Arizona, and they met while being coworkers for a firm. Wayne fell instantly in love and had to build up the nerve to ask Sandra out, but when he finally did, the rest was history.

The Prado at Balboa Park Wedding – Alyssa + Damian

The Prado at Balboa Park  is such a fun, iconic place and was perfect for Alyssa and Damian’s October wedding.  These two are such a sweet couple and it was a pleasure getting to know them throughout their wedding experience.

The beautiful bride, Alyssa, wrote a few words to describe her wedding experience and why the Prado was the perfect place for her and Damian:

“Right after we got engaged in New Orleans we knew we wanted to get married in an iconic and historical site in San Diego.  The Prado at Balboa Park was the perfect fit with it’s monumental structures & Spanish style decor.  It completely matched the romantic and intimate vision that we had.  Hiring Cary Pennington from the beginning was a no brainer.  Right after we left his studio we knew that was it.  His unique style fit our taste perfectly.  We wanted a mix of candid shots and portrait shots in a variety of color schemes.  The experience with Cary was very easy going and positive.  He was relaxed and made us feel at ease the day of our wedding.  We really let him have full control of the day and let his vision guide us.  The photos from our romantic, intimate and beautiful wedding at the Prado turned out stunning.  Cary captured our special day perfectly and for that I thank him for his creativity and the true love he has for his passion.”

Thanks so much Alyssa and Damian!
