San Diego Wedding Photographer | Orange County Weddings

Weddings somehow have a way of taking on a life of their own.  If you’ve recently tied the knot, you definitely know this.  If you’re in the midst of the planning process, you will soon know what I mean…Michelle and Tim held an intimate wedding at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego on a beautiful winter afternoon.  When I first met with them, they weren’t planning on having a bridal party, just wanted to keep it simple.  The more the merrier though, right?!  Bring on the bridesmaids and groomsmen, woohoo!  Tim and Michelle are such a beautiful couple, so much respect and love for each other, it just oozes from them.  Enjoy the images :)

The grounds of the MCRD San Diego were awesome- dramatic architecture, perfectly groomed grass and huge palm trees.Marine Corps Recruit Depot wedding

Their ceremony took place in the chapel, where Michelle’s daddy not only walked her down the aisle, but officiated the ceremony as well.San Diego wedding photography

The reception was also at MCRD San Diego- at the Bay View Restaurant.  Michelle bought 80 POUNDS of candy and there were 65 guests!  I still have cream soda & coconut Jelly Bellies in my pantry :)OC wedding photography
