Palamor Hotel Wedding in San Diego | Erin + Mitch

Palamor Hotel Wedding in San Diego | Erin + Mitch

Can we just take a moment to appreciate our mutual love of rose gold? And especially rose gold so boldly displayed at this intimate rooftop wedding in San Diego?

Side story time: When I was about 9 months pregnant with my first baby (my belly was soooo cute and huge!! #babyfever), my husband and I did a mini baby moon at Hotel  Palomar in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego (downtown). I booked us a couple's massage, we stayed up eating candy and drinking wine in bathrobes, and had an amazing time. It went down as one of the best weekends/memories of my life. (Also we used to live in San Diego... hence to reason I try to book ALL the weddings on the west coast!)

So, when Jessi (Jessi Field @iamjessifield) asked me if I wanted to go to San Diego with her and second shoot this wedding, I was like F YES. When she told me where the wedding was, I about passed out.

Then we went on to have the best few days ever shooting this wedding (the bride was *literally a model*), dancing at my old country bar haunt, and hiking Sunset Cliffs barefoot with gorgeous people. Also we got a little food poisoned and hungover one too many times but ehhhhh. Small details. 

Thank you Jessi for those amazing few days I still pine for all these weeks later! 

You know how sometimes the universe just makes you feel like you're exactly where you should be? This wedding was that for me. I'm truly loving my life, friends, work, and family right now. UGH.

Outdoor Live Oak Plantation Wedding | Kelly + Andrew

This was legit the best wedding ever. The timeline was smooth, the weather was perfect, the couple was gorgeous, and all the guests knew how to party!! I may be biased cause there was a healthy amount of SoCal people there.

I'm usually all for first looks, but Kelly and Andrew decided to wait to see each other until the ceremony. There were doors hiding Kelly so that she couldn't be seen before she started walking and when I saw Andrew and Kelly's reaction to each other, I knew they made the right choice. 

Sorry not sorry for the overshare in this sneak peek, but it was all so good. There were so many tears and so much love and so much kindness. I loved the entire family. 

How incredibly lucky am I to be able to hang out with amazing people and cry happy tears while working every single time. Also cake - I'm slowly becoming a cake connoisseur and I'm not mad about that ;)

Ps. Sharon and Doug, please adopt me.
