ELOPING..It's the Ultimate for the OffBeat Bride!

It's true, we've always loved the offbeat bride,
and we just found a great blog to celebrate just that. 

And today on the OffBeat Bride blog ( say that fast 3 times)
they are talking about petticoats!  

Who knew they were making such a come back?

  The blog mentioned a great site for all things
colorful, crinoline and fun: 

For your petticoat to show a little, you'll need a short dress
...did we mention how PERFECT
that would be for the kind of beach weddings
we offer here in San Diego? 

It's true, we are still surprised at how many brides arrive in a cathedral length gown
fretting about getting sand on their gown. 
Not to mention the poor groom
sweating because he has been stuffed into a TUXEDO for the beach. 

We say, have fun, choose relaxed fun clothing that reflects the
simplicity of beautiful beach elopement. 

Here is the
"OffBeat Bride blog
for you to follow, have fun!

Wonderful Past Clients of Ours!

We were so excited to see this story about one of clients, Jon Kitna!  

Jon and Jeni are clients of our when we were in Seattle when he played for the Seattle Seahawks.    I had the honor of photographing their family and each of their little ones when they were tiny --creating beautiful baby portraits of each of them. 
beautiful baby kitna :)

Just saw this article which tells me they are very same happy, grounded,
generous, loving family they always were! 
Jon's grandmother use to live next door to Steve's mom in Yakima.

We've attached the article below....  we weren't the least bit surprised to see that Jon is donating his NFL salary to the high school he works out in Tacoma, Washington. 

I was delighted to find a current photo of their family taken at the Portland Fellowship of Christian Athletes
(which sadly, I didn't take and didn't see a photographer to give credit to....)

What a beautiful family!

another great story about his work:

Over 60,000 visitors and a new name to boot! Welcome "Barefoot San Diego Weddings"

We started our little "Elope San Diego" blog many years ago, and this month we hit over 63,000 visitors, and our YouTube video of wedding images hit over 17,000!  


In celebration of our success we have a new name for our blog 

 "San Diego Barefoot Weddings"

 It best describes what we offer.  
Unstuffy, happy,low stress ceremonies on the beach or in the neighborhood parks.

No arches...No chairs....No drama ! 

Yeah, there are plenty of other companies in the area that offer all the traditional hoopla, but that's not us.  At the end of the day, we happen to think your marriage is a whole lot more important than having an expensive, stressful wedding. 
This sentiment comes from a couple who have been married for 26 years, worked together and who have been a part of over 3500 weddings since 1987.

That said, we love to have a great time with you, to include your dogs, your kids, your close family and friends...but remember.. we only do tiny weddings for groups under 25.
We know we're not for everyone, and that's okay with us. 

The couples that do choose to work with us love what we offer,
and we happen to have a 99% approval rating! 

Check out our elopement packages here

Or give us a call, last minute weddings are our favorites :)
