Rachel + Colin : Westgate Hotel Wedding

MCCUBBINS18.jpg

This past Saturday I had the distinct pleasure of photographing Rachel and Colin's Westgate Hotel wedding in downtown San Diego.  The Westgate Hotel is a real gem, a little slice of classic European styling right smack-dab in the middle of America's Finest City.  It's subtleties were perfectly suited for Rachel and Colin's elegant affair. And the light--ohhh, the light--was incredible, unlike anything I've seen inside a venue in San Diego.  Soft, creamy, like ice cream on a hot summer evening.

Rachel and Colin's ceremony was held on the hotel's rooftop terrace, with stunning views of downtown.  The reception was held in the gorgeous Versailles Ballroom, where Rachel and Colin's design tastes melded perfectly with the room's decor.  That is to say, let the environment do the work; Rachel and Colin did just that.

A huge thanks to Cara from Luxe Special Events for coordinating the evening.  She did a marvelous job pulling together all the pieces and making sure the night ran smoothly.  And thanks as always to my associate photographer, Mike, for his fantastic work and steady demeanor.
