El Cortez Wedding | Brandon & Christine

Brandon & Christine love exploring the city together, and San Diego is rich with hidden gems of culture and history. So, after getting ready for the day with this adventurous and adorable couple, we set out for one of our favorite places: the gorgeous and historic Marston House at Balboa Park. This was the perfect location for Brandon & Christine’s First Look! We brought them to our favorite, secluded spot, where red bricks curve into simple arches, and rustic wood benches are set beneath colorful wall tiles. We turned Brandon around, had him close his eyes, and then had Christine join him. On the busy wedding day, it was wonderful for Brandon & Christine to have time to laugh, smile, cry, hold hands, and just enjoy being with each other, just the two of them.

We walked the sprawling gardens with Brandon & Christine and their awesome friends, soaking up the sun and smiles, before heading off to The North Chapel for a beautiful, traditional ceremony full of laughter and warmth. The Don Room at El Cortez was absolutely stunning, combining playful fun with picture-perfect elegance. We loved the personal touches and details — from the games during cocktail hour to the hand-labeled favors! We took some time for more portraits of these two in beautiful, downtown San Diego before heading back for the party at one of the most fun and stylish venues in the city!

Congratulations, Brandon & Christine! We are so happy for you, and we already can’t wait to see you again!
