San Diego Museum of Art Wedding

On the first day of spring, Jessica and Peter held their San Diego Museum of Art wedding ceremony and reception at Balboa Park’s oldest museum.

Bridal Prep at the U.S. Grant Hotel

We began their wedding photos at a location near and dear to me:  The US Grant Hotel.  My wife and I were married there a long time ago and we make a point to visit every so often to remind ourselves of our beginnings. The hotel has long been renovated since our wedding there, but the old-time charm remains.  

Jessica was gorgeous in her Amsale gown, while her bridesmaids wore dresses by the same wonderful designer.

Bridesmaids put the finishing touches on the back of her gown and her beautiful heels.
