All the way from New Zealand to "Elope To San Diego" !

Susan and Schoen traveled all the way from New Zealand to be married with us this week!  When we asked them, "Why San Diego?"   They told us.... it was an easy decision, San Diego was half way between England, where Susan's mom traveled from and New Zealand...  They loved the idea of meeting at the beach in America!

Cynthia and Joseph traveled from Buckeye, Arizona with their children, their other family members and their friends to "Elope in San Diego".  Okay, we didn't have a hot sunny day lined up for them, however that didn't dampen anyones spirit!  A ceremony filled with laughter and joy!  And from a photographers point of view, we love the clouds-- no harsh shadows,no "squinting", great soft colors for the photos... and last but not least, it reminds us of Seattle and the great white soft box in sky :)

And from Scottsdale, Arizona... Kathryn and Ryan decided that San Diego was the perfect place to tie the knot with just their families.  We were excited to find out that Ryan use to live in Seattle... and played baseball for the Mariners as a pitcher.  They too had a cloudy Seattle day... something Ryan would know all about after living in Seattle. 

 Thanks for a great, happy week!

Our Foster Dogs Diego & Miss Peaches featured on iePolitics.com !

dog rescue. devore shelter. animal rescue, pet friendly weddings
Not only are we crazy for pet friendly weddings... we are also very active in the animal rescue community.  At any given time, we'll have a couple of extra foster dogs waiting for homes.... along with our 3. 

Our shelter of choice is Devore in San Bernardino, California.   It's a place in need of serious help.  It's a place where the many dogs rounded up in the community, or left by their owners... are simply killed euthanized because they don't have homes.  We are working hard to make some changes at the shelter, but it's not easy to swim upstream.

So the good news is that the folks at iePolitics have not only been there to let people know about Devore and it's problems, but they are becoming part of the solution!  They will be featuring dogs rescued from Devore that need  homes right away.  

We say "Thank you" so much from the bottom of our hearts.  It's so wonderful when people can use their talents and resources to help us help the dogs. 

So, without further ado.....we are also featuring our two foster dogs, Diego and Peaches from Devore Shelter.  Both in need of homes.

Miss Peaches was rescued the day before yesterday.  She is 10 lbs of love, not potty trained yet, nobody is perfect... she does hit the puddle pads perfectly!  She's beautiful and smart and sweet as pie.  Let us know if you might have room for her, she needs lots of attention :)  We are in San Diego, and I know she would fit under the seat in an airplane EASY!!

after a bath, a name and a few snuggles!   

And we are still working to find a home for our special needs German Shepherd, Diego!  He's a big hunk of love, he needs to be an only dog and would love a big yard to relax in.  If you were good with training and had experience with big dogs that would be great.  He's quite happy to sit in the sun on his big chair and wile away the hours!

Loving what we do for couples!

Just received the most wonderful,
warm thank you note from Jen and Rudy
who were married about a week ago on Coronado Beach.
They eloped to San Diego from from Las Vegas.
It's something we always call  "a reverse commute"....
since Las Vegas seems to be the elopement capitol of the world.

So many couples run away from Las Vegas to elope
with us on the beach.

Of course, San Diego and Coronado Beaches
are waaaaaaay more beautiful, don't you agree?

We really love it so much- when couples take the time
to share how happy they were with everything. 
Jen and Rudy,
thanks for taking the time to let us know how happy you were!

Christine & Steve

I wanted to take a moment to thank you both for your time and patience during our ceremony last week. Not only was it a big day for Rudy and I, as our wedding day and 8 year anniversary, but it was also the 1 year anniversary of the diagnosis of my father's ALS. It was a very emotional and celebratory day for our entire families. Thank you for being a part of it and thank you for making it memorable for all of us. And, most importantly, thank you for making it
easy - so we could truly concentrate on the real meaning of marriage: our joining of families and celebrating our love for each other. Take care, Jen.
