San Diego Wedding Photography Blog | Cary Pennington » Stunning wedding photographs from San Diego

I’m always excited when I have the opportunity to photograph a wedding at the beautiful Estancia Resort & Spa in La Jolla. The landscape of the property is lovely with its Spanish feel and all of its trees and succulents and offers great backdrops for some great photos. Camille and Josh hosted a beautiful wedding with a classic but elegant look of red roses, white calla lillies and hints of teal, champagne and gold colors. All favorite colors of the bride! Their ceremony took place on the Olive Lawn where they had a very sweet exchange of wedding vows.

La Jolla Women’s Club is located in the heart of La Jolla Village, just one block from the Pacific Ocean. It offers a beautiful setting for any special event, with its exquisite private gardens and ocean views. Emily and Doug chose the Women’s Club because Doug lived in La Jolla and wanted a wedding venue close to the beach for fun in the sun and fun they had! The day before they had a beach olympic games with family and friends and then had their beautiful wedding the following day.

Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala is the first of the 21 missions and known as the Mother of the Missions. It was founded on July 16, 1769 by Blessed Junipero Serra and it was designated as a Minor Basilica in 1976 by Pope Paul VI. The Mission today is an active Catholic Parish in the Diocese of San Diego, located in the Mission Valley area of San Diego. It’s beautiful inside and out with all of its unique details and the perfect location for Carrie and Steve’s special day. The both of them met at a Jack in the Box drive thru window after walking home with a group of friends one night. Maybe Jack in the Box can offer a “match maker” on their menu. While not planning a wedding they love Padres baseball and traveling together.

    Love the bride’s dress and the color of the bridesmaids’ dresses. My favorite shot is the ring bearer with the glasses on. Super cool. Great work, Cary!

    The shot of the ring bearer with the glasses on is awesome. Great work, Cary.

The Rancho Bernardo Inn displays a rustic, picturesque setting and has some great landscaping throughout the property for beautiful photo opportunities.  I met Tania back in 2008 at her sister’s wedding where she was a bridesmaid.  Years later, Tania and Tony were introduced by her sister and brother in law, Daniella and Ricardo.  At first they were only friends, but eventually Tony got the courage to ask Tania to be his girlfriend.  Unfortunately, Tania rejected him!  However it didn’t take long for Tania to realize how great of a man Tony is, and she agreed to be his girlfriend.  Their ceremony was held at the Promenade which has beautiful views of the golf course and makes a great backdrop with the trees.  The reception took place in the Bernardo ball room with its cool wood beam ceiling and some amazing wedding details.  The colors and the up lighting made the ballroom look amazing! Here are their engagement photos at the Grand Del Mar
