amy + stephanie – catamaran hotel

I met Amy and Stephanie at the Bridal Bazaar, and from the moment we met, I totally knew that they were my couple!  One problem – we had originally planned on being away on vacation over their date, so I told them that we’d figure it out (if we were going or not) and would let them know soon.  Shortly afterward, I received an email from them, with even more information on who they are, and a picture of them doing the 3 Day Walk together (something that I had done for six years, including …

It’s About Time! Marriage Equality Wedding Giveaway

It’s About Time!  Truly, that is how so many of us San Diego wedding professionals felt on July 1st, when we could finally celebrate our LGBT couples FULLY!  For years we had happily been celebrating the love and commitment and connection of all of our couples, but with our LGBT couples we could only do so 98% of the way – as I could never pronounce them legally married and could never sign a marriage license.  Now all of our couples’ relationships can be treated as equal, and a group of us wanted to celebrate …

Carrie and Alynn – Embarcadero Marina Park South

I received a note on Facebook in June from the partner of a cool woman I had known for a few years already (as Carrie was our fantastic cat sitter), asking if I would be available for their celebration in September, and I was so excited to hear from them!  Luckily, as I was already booked on that date for a later wedding, and had been for almost a year, I was glad to hear that it would be earlier in the afternoon, so we could make it work. The three of us got together …
