Cristie and Jimmy's wedding was so beautiful, it's been picked up all around the internet at some of the top wedding blogs in San Diego and beyond! Their epic party was picture-perfect from start to finish with gorgeous details like hand drawn calligraphy, stunning pink and cream florals, a perfectly draped tent for dancing, and a stunning sunset complete with romantic hot air balloons off in the distance. Their big day wasn't just beautiful, however, they also managed to throw a wild dance party to the tunes of Encore Event Entertainment, and their guests were LOVING IT! Amid the fog and lights, even the bride and groom were getting down and letting loose, and things got a little wild! Check it out, with other great moments from their day below:

Cristie's bridal accessories in muted tones of snow white, pale pink, and creamy ivory popped perfectly against the colorful background of the Santaluz Club in Black Mountain Ranch. Her gorgeous gown from Mia Bella Couture, with its bedazzled lace and stylish silhouette, looks right at home amongst the rustic, yet modern surroundings.

The girls got ready in the CUTEST matching PJs you'll ever see, sipping on drinks while the superstar makeup artists from A Toast to Beauty made them look their very best. Soon after, was time to take some seriously cute portraits of Cristie and her girls having a great time all around Santaluz. We had a blast with the bridal party while their second photographer was hanging with the guys:

Clearly, Jimmy and his friends are a bunch of goofballs who know how to have a good time! They were looking sharp in their grey suits and navy accent pieces as they romped around the club taking pictures. After taking some shots, both silly and sweet, of the groomsmen, the big moment of the couple's first look was upon us!

There were smiles and happy tears all around as the happy couple saw each other for the first time in their wedding attire. After a group shot, they started preparing to head to the church and down the aisle to become husband and wife!

After a sweet exchange between Cristie and her dad, the two took their places at the end of the aisle for that special walk, and the anticipation was tangible in the air as Jimmy waited patiently for his beautiful bride to come through the doors.

Their traditional Catholic ceremony was heartfelt and beautiful, and the setting itself, with its open, airy feel and vaulted ceilings, was almost as beautiful as the vows. The newlyweds looked absolutely overjoyed as they turned to face the congregation of friends and family as husband and wife, and they smiled constantly as they made their way back down the aisle. After some family photos at the altar, everyone headed back to Santaluz to get the party started! Cristie & Jimmy Wedding - HoffmanPhotoVideo-633Cristie & Jimmy Wedding - HoffmanPhotoVideo-633

We loved these huge wooden doors as a backdrop for some amazing couples portraits!

The reception tent at Santaluz was draped and decorated with beautiful blooms, chiavari chairs, gorgeous glass peices, and cute personal touches galore! The custom designed paper goods by Just Jurf were an amazing upscale touch and looked fantastic on the tables, adding a pop of pale pink to the classic white linens.

Bess + Braedon | Falkner Winery | Real Wedding http://www.hoffmanphotovideo.com/blog/2016/6/bess-braedon-falkner-winery-real-wedding Bride and groom under wedding veil overlooking Falkner Winery in Temecula, CA. Text Reading: Vineyard Elegance-Real Wedding-Bess and BraedonBlog title: Vineyard ElelganceBride and groom under wedding veil overlooking Falkner Winery in Temecula, CA.

The countryside surrounding Temecula has long been well known as San Diego County's "wine country," and, like most wine producing regions of the world, its natural beauty is hard to surpass, with rolling green hills stretching on for miles and clear, bright blue skies giving the area an inherent sense of peace. Nestled among the vines, up on a hill overlooking the valley, is Falkner Winery, the charming venue where our next featured wedding took place. Sweet, spunky Bess and her handsome groom Braedon chose Falkner as the place where they would become husband and wife, and really incorporated the essence of wine country into their big day, from getting ready at a gorgeous estate nearby with its own very own vines, to their DIY wine bottle table toppers, cork name card holders, and wine bottle stopper favors, and of course, their gorgeous ceremony site which overlooks Falkner's expansive vineyards.

Home base for wedding day prep was this incredible Temecula estate with amazing sweeping views of the surrounding mountains, sparkling pool, and its very own vineyard. We'll move right in, thanks!

These shots were a perfect way to cap off the day, incorporating this fun, feisty couple's love for wine and each other.  We're so honored to have been a part of their amazing wedding!

These high school sweethearts finally tied the knot on February 27, 2016 on the idyllic grounds of Wedgewood Fallbrook.

This darling couple was SUCH a joy to work with, and their story couldn't be sweeter! They met while working in the youth ministry at the very church where we captured their heartfelt ceremony, and they were surrounded by what seemed like the entire church community as they lovingly said their vows.

Fresh Florals | Gorgeous Bouquet Inspiration from Real Weddings http://www.hoffmanphotovideo.com/blog/2016/3/fresh-florals-gorgeous-bouquet-inspiration-from-real-weddings Spring has sprung again!

It's that lovely time of year where birds sing, the sky is bright and blue, and flowers are in bloom everywhere you look. Speaking of flowers, bouquets are a beautiful wedding tradition that we love to photograph at every wedding we attend. We’ve seen it all, from lush tropical cascades of orchids to simply sweet multicolored bunches of billy buttons and peonies, and we want to showcase some of our favorites so we can share the joy of springtime with you all!

1. Multicolored Rainbow by Whimsey Florals

This year, our team had the great fortune to be able to travel to the little town of Las Vegas to attend The WPPI Wedding & Portrait Photography Conference+Expo along with around 13,000 of our fellow photographers and media makers. We had a blast exploring the seemingly endless rows of gear, album companies, and demo booths, and we attended seminars by top industry professionals like Sue Bryce, Peter Hurley, Doug Gordon, Clint Mautner, and Roberto Valenzuela to name just a few!

Kat + Willem | La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club | Real Wedding http://www.hoffmanphotovideo.com/blog/2016/2/kat-willem-la-jolla-beach-tennis-club-real-wedding Their Proposal Story: After graduation, and nearly two years of long-distance dating, both Kat and Willem would eventually settle in for a new adventure in Portland. Willem thought he had the one when Kat agreed to watch 100-plus A's games in the summer of 2014. He knew he had the one when Kat didn't leave him after his meltdown in the hours following the A's collapse in the playoffs.With his mind made up, Willem planned his proposal. Knowing that Kat's only wish in life is to get a puppy, Willem put a deposit down for a Golden Doodle. He then bought a collar with the name of the couple's future dog (Andi, short for Anderson, if you're wondering) and placed the collar on Snowy, the Suyderhoud family dog. While walking Snowy on Baker Beach in San Francisco, Willem surprised Kat with the collar and the news of the soon-to-be arriving addition to their apartment. Moments later, Willem followed up with a proposal. Kat channeled her inner Marv Albert and said, "Yes!"

As you can see these two love birds had an amazing celebration at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club surrounded by all their favorite friends & family!

Christina + Ryan | Coronado Island | Engagement Session http://www.hoffmanphotovideo.com/blog/2015/11/christina-ryan-coronado-island Christina & Ryan could not have picked a more beautiful day for their engagement session. It was one of those perfectly sunny days on Coronado Island and they looked stunning. 

We had so much fun running around the Island capturing them in different spots and hearing about their wedding plans. We have known Christina for quite some time so it is very special that we get to capture this wonderful time in her life! We can't wait for the wedding day!
