a few of our critters...

And some really wonderful news, one of our awesome brides Sara S is our FIRST bride to step up and offer to be a foster mum for our pups, by doing this for us, she helps us to save more dogs by multiplying homes for them until they are adopted.  

Thank you Sara, she saved Snickers last night, on her VERY last day....Sara drove all the way to San Bernardino to rescue her.  She even gave her the cutest name EVER....

As  you can see Sara has her hands full,
but she is making the time to help us.  THANK YOU!!!

A great day for ice cream!

coronado beach weddings, elope to san diego, eloping san diego, destination beach weddings san diego, elopement wedding packages, christine haslet photographer, steve haslet san diego wedding officiant, san diego wedding

One should never be too busy to stop for ice cream .... 

What a great way to start your life off as a married couple!  

Katy and Jon were on their way down to the beach to say their I do's.. and were overwhelmed by the smell of baking waffle cones.. 

We all looked at each other and said..."Why not" ? 

  While their family and friends were waiting for them down at the beach, they stopped in for snack.  And as it turns out, it was "on the house"  FREE ICE CREAM!  

What's better than that, I ask?
Thank you Moo Time Creamery at The Hotel Del Coronado

congrats katy and john

SAY IT ISN'T SO........

weddings in san diego, christine haslet, elope san diego, eloping in san diego, san diego wedding ceremonies, beach weddings in san diego, san diego wedding officiants

Say it isn't so.....America's Rash Retreat From Marriage???

We were more than a little surprised  to find the latest data showing that unmarried adults now almost outnumber those who are married.  

And within a few years, the majority of adults over 18 will be single.  A first!  

You can read the entire article here, it's pretty interesting turn of events. 

Here is a our new video of couples who decided that marriage was just right for them... and eloping with "Elope San Diego" was the coolest, most affordable way to celebrate their love....  done and done !! 

Okay, it's true.....we're a little biased, because THIS year we'll not only be celebrating  25 of years of marriage, but 25 years of marrying couples!

elope san diego, eloping to san diego, rave reviews fro our  Elope San Diego's elopement packages! 

This week we received some wonderful thank you notes from some of our very favorite clients! 

Christine and Steve –

Just wanted to thank you once again for the absolutely amazing wedding photos. Last night I finally got around to making my wedding scrapbook (yes, I know it’s been 5 months) and the pictures make me smile. You really captured the romantic, playful  feel of our big day. You are the best! Thank you.

Christine and Steve,  I was taking a walk down memory lane and looking at your website.I am so grateful for your pictures, the ease and beauty of that day, and Steve making the ceremony so special.  It was everything we wanted!

Love,  Rachel & Adam Lyon 
August 13, 2008,  Coronado

Steve and Christine,

Steven and I would like to thank you for being a part of our day and making it special; we couldn't have asked for a more perfect ceremony and stress free day. We just received the pictures (wow, that was fast!) and they are beautiful! they took us back to that special moment. I can't believe how busy Coronado beach was that day and how talented you are in capturing just us and our family in the photos! Very impressive!
I may have a couple referrals for you; it seems like we are not the only ones out there who just want to keep it simple and intimate and that's exactly what you provide.

We wish the best for you both and to all the happy couples you meet.

We love hearing how happy we've made you!!  Know that if you are considering an elopement on the beach, a destination wedding on the beach, think about eloping to our beautiful beaches in California, specifically San Diego beaches, we're in!
(for very small groups under 25 people)

christine and steve

Seems we have the greatest job on the planet, SERIOUSLY!!

We say nuff already!!!  .... see this story here... although if this was her aisle to walk down, she may be texting her wedding coordinator to say WTH what THE heck?  We've heard of backyard weddings, but is  this a "front yard" wedding?   LOVE the stop sign in the background.  You don't see enough of those at weddings these days....

Six MoRe Pups Adopted this week-- Rescued from death row! Before and After...

jackson now!   3 months old
Woof!  Woof!  Something to really howl about this week...

This week we found homes for six more dogs that we rescued on their very last day from a very high kill shelter in San Bernardino about 125 miles from our home. (A shelter with a paltry 25% adoption rate for dogs)

We found incredible, loving homes for Rocket, Bella Bee, Bailey, Harley, Lola and Jackson.  You can see their before and after pics-- you'll be able to see why we do this work and what a change a day can make for these critters.

jackson at the shelter
Harley and Lola are the puppies that were born at the shelter, 5 puppies all together, we  rescued mom and babies just 12 hours after their birth.  All of their brothers and sisters were adopted earlier.  Mom dog, Lulu went to live in Malibu with Connie several weeks ago.  A happily ever after story if there ever was one for each of these dogs.......

Why are we telling you about this?  Because we're SO EXCITED to be able to do this work.  We also wanted you to know that If you are even thinking about a adopting a dog, we have some great ones right now... and if you live far away, please, please  go to your local shelter!  About FOUR MILLION healthy, homeless dogs are killed each year.  You can be part of the solution.  You don't have to be crazy dog people, like us....and have dogs everywhere.  But you can help in other ways.  We have a website with our pups, and a place to donate to help our cause. It's located at: 

We also want you to know that if you can't adopt one of our dogs, or any dog for that matter.  You can help us by sponsoring a dog.  With a monthly donation for food, that's $20.00 or to help us "a dog a month" for $80.00. Wonder what we do with your donations?  Donations to our 501c3 help us with adoption fees, pay vet bills, vaccinations, worming, shampoo, mani's and pedi's, food, toys, blankets, spay/neuter, flea treatments, meds..whew.....

Bailey now
Our fee to rescue a dog is $80.00, that goes to our shelter, and includes the spay/neuter.  Think about this: you could save a shelter dog in honor of your wedding day for $80.00.   How cool would that be?  We'll keep you updated all the way through the process until they are adopted. Think about it.   It's the most fun tax deductible donation you could make all year!

bella bee now

Our next adoption event is THIS SUNDAY, October 30th at the Canine Carnival in Ocean Beach here in San the DUSTY RHODES DOG PARK.  10-4. 
You can see Maggie, our Senior Bernese Mountain Dog mix, Rosie the Chi, Leon and Jack both Chi's, Holstein and a few others-- all looking for great homes.
