What?   A Wedding Do OVER???

We were just contacted by WeTv looking for weddings that were less than perfect, even damn near a disaster!  Seems they are casting for a reality show for a fabulous wedding "do over".  

We're happy to say that we can't think of a single wedding that we were a part of that would qualify for the dubious honor.  But please let us know know if you can think of one, we'd love to hear about it!  Email me, Christine at info@elopesandiego.com   Maybe we can help one of your friends have the wedding they had dreamed of ----sans the drama.

Veterans Day 2010

This day is a sobering reminder of all that has been given on our behalf, and a celebration of all that we enjoy because of those sacrifices. As we continue to fight abroad, many of our soliders are still in harms way.  We take time to think of each of them and all they do for us.

Steve and I have been touched and blessed to share so many happy moments with many brides and grooms and their families who are serving in the military here in San Diego and abroad.... and surprised by the number of couples who are BOTH serving at the very same time.

We say thank you and know that your service is appreciated and we love that we are a part of such an important day for you and your families.

We wanted to share some of the photos from our  couples who have eloped with us and are currently serving in the military.  Our son, Ben is in the photos above and Steve who is a retired Captain in the Army below.

If you have a last minute wedding or elopement in your future, here in San Diego,
we would love to help you have a beautiful, happy, affordable,
stylish wedding day on Coronado Beach with the ones you love.
While we promise lots of fun and a low stress day,
we can't promise that the Navy Seals won't be on the beach to share your day with you!

Record Heat Here in San Diego! It's a great time of the year to ELOPE with us!

Fall Is Our Favorite Time Of The Year! 

And it's great time to Elope with us...
Jennifer and Donny came from Indiana to spend the week in San Diego and get married and honeymoon. We LOVED her fun, blue dress and beautiful smile... her brother Steve traveled from Los Angeles and the five of us had a wonderful afternoon... seriously fun! Perfect weather and sunset.

The beaches are less crowded, we have beautiful sunsets and the temps are usually pretty mild. 

Okay, this week we hit 100 yesterday, and high 90's the beginning of the week but that's really unusual,  breaking records for November.  It was 93 degrees for Jennifer and Donny, and it's worth repeating, the most beautiful sunset ever.

Here in San Diego we can boast that we have the best weather in country pretty much all year around, that's why it's so perfect for Coronado beach weddings. If it's freezing in Chicago, it's warm here, if it's baking hot in Phoenix, it's mild here... if it's raining in Seattle, it's not raining here.....you get the idea!

Crysti and Barry's wedding day.... another beautiful fall wedding on Coronado Bay behind the
San Diego Convention Center at sunrise. Crysti and Barry traveled from Long Beach to spend their morning with us.  Just check out those birds...

AND MORE FALL STORIES .... We love Fall for other reasons as well...
 Halloween and Halloween Parties.  


We were thrilled to be part of the celebration for Second Chance Dog Rescue Party and Auction as they celebrated finding forever homes for 2000 dogs in just 2 years.  About 200 people attended the event at the San Diego Country Club Saturday night.   We donated a beautiful black and white photograph of "Curly" that we purchased while volunteering at Best Friends Sanctuary in Utah.  It was signed by the photographer Gary Kalpakoff (pictured with his horse).   Curly is one of the VICKtory Dogs rescued from the dog fighting ring of NFL player Michael Vick.  A wonderful story of a second chance.


We also got to hear the incredible story of "Nubs" brought back from Iraq by Marine Major Brian Dennis.  This is a dog story to beat all dog stories.  Major Dennis, fed and loved his new friend,  when it was time to leave, he had to make the tough decision to leave the dog behind to fend for himself.  Nubs would have no part of that.... found his way back to the platoon that had traveled over 70 miles away in the snow!

Of course we would have to mention our costumes... did I mention our costumes?

  BRIDE of Frankenstein, and Frankenstein. 
Steve called me his Mrs. "F" all evening. 

Happy Fall- it's not over yet, we have five couples that are eloping with us
and getting married this weekend
