It’s so exciting to share Chase and Matt’s same sex wedding photos from their Hotel Del Coronado wedding!

Same Sex Wedding at San Diego’s Iconic Property

The Hotel Del Coronado meets all the requirements for Chase and Matt’s perfect San Diego same sex wedding venue. For instance, the venue has sophistication and an amazing “wow” factor. In addition, the Hotel Del Coronado has amazing decor and spectacular views. In conclusion, the Hotel Del Coronado is the perfect venue for their San Diego wedding!

I really love shooting the entire process of a groom getting ready. For example, I love to play with interesting angles of the groom putting on his bowtie. In addition, grooms tend to give me a little more leeway when it comes to making really creative portraits!

Groom Chase poses in yet another amazing portrait location at the Hotel Del Coronado.

A Coronet Room Reception for Their Hotel Del Coronado Wedding!

Chase and Matt’s reception was held in the glorious Coronet Room, the smaller but no less exotic ballroom next to the famous Crown Room. The Coronet Room is smaller and more intimate, but still big enough to seat plenty of guests.

Chase and Matt paid special attention to their speakeasy-themed bar, which featured signature cocktails and lovely florals designed by Isari Flower Studio.

Matt and Chase’s speakeasy-themed reception is the result of lots of work with their amazing vendors.
