San Diego wedding photographers at Scripps Seaside Forum in La Jolla California

we go to maui for 6 days… 6 days! we come back and the clocks have shifted, it’s raining, and it’s freezing outside.

wth.

happy winter everyone! to which i hear a grumble from kim’s side of the desk. if you know her you’ll know she hates winter. like, hate hates it. think jim carrey’s grinch that hates winter. i, on the other hand, love it! of course we call anything under 70 winter in san diego.

i have just the thing to warm everyone up on these cold november days… our smokin hot couple julia and patrick. they got married in october at the incredible scripps seaside forum in la jolla. the surf is pretty chilly right now, but they warmed it up about 20 degrees that day.

these two are so darn cute! if you get within 100 feet of them you can literally feel their love for each other. that’s something we found out during their engagement session in san diego and again witnessed it at their first look on their wedding day. julia was frontin like she wasn’t going to cry, but once she turned to patrick and saw him crying, her tears flowed like wine. ours did too. darn you two! you nearly crumbled kim’s robot shell. *wink*

the whole day was so relaxed, and everything went perfectly. coordinator cathy did an amazing job! patrick’s brother’s paolo (who is funnier than he-zell) & dj p-jay (who’s a dj for power 106 in LA) had the house jumpin all night. julia, patrick, and the whole bridal party busted out with a choreographed dance to the lmfao party rock anthem. i was totally going to join in but then i remembered i’m the world’s whitest white boy.

as if the group dance wasn’t cool enough, julia and patrick’s first dance together was another awesome routine to beyonce’s love on top. they can dance son!

good music was a big part of this wedding. speaking of good music, we recently found out that julia knows one of our other musically talented grooms. she went to ucsd with wilbur, see catherine and wilbur. how crazy is that? it’s a small world after all. have fun getting that song out of your head now.

julia and patrick, i hope you know how happy we are to have met you. we absolutely adore you guys! every image of you makes us smile. we hope they make you smile too.
