Go big or go home!! Tyler and Lyndsey elope to San Diego

I mean, if you’re going to elope and do a small wedding, you might as well go big and have the smallest of weddings and do it during the 4th of July weekend… because, why not… they’re Canadians. LOL.

The awesome Deborah Young, a very well respected wedding officiant from San Diego called me and asked me if I was willing and available to shoot a very small and very short wedding a whole 3 days before the wedding was to take place as she apologized for the last minute request. The couple was coming on vacation to sunny city and wanted to get hitched… in a spur of the moment kind of way…

“hmmm… well, let me see if I’m available”

**flipping through the pages of my imaginary paper calendar**

“Yes Deborah… I believe I am”

That’s right… 3 days later, I was at Tyler and Lyndsey’s wedding which included all but 4 people: Deborah The wedding officiant, the couple and yours truly at Seagrove Park in Del Mar at Sunset. I had never met the couple for obvious reasons but we had a fantastic time! they are lovely people and I felt immediately comfortable with them.

Now, believe me that’s up close and incredibly personal. As you can see in the pictures, there’s no reason for me to be anywhere but right with them… all up in the grill.

I was involved! I had never been a witness at a wedding but I guess I can cross that off my bucket list now.

I hope you enjoy the photos… I am very proud of them.

The wedding of Mélanie and Steve was a small affaire as they wanted to keep it a small personal event to the people closes to them but it’s a small affaire to me. I care about the couples I work with and this one was no different. It was a beautiful wedding and it could have been with a nicer bride and groom.
