Remember Karina and Alex from the last post? If not, click here to check out their engagement photos.
Karina and Alex got married on a gorgeous spring San Diego day. The day was filled with lots of love for Karina and Alex and you just couldn’t help but to feel it all day long. It was definitely a day that Maurice and I were touched to be part of.
Their wedding ceremony took place at one of San Diego’s historic Catholic Churches, Mission Basilica San diego de Alcala. The aisles were decorated with bold red flowers which matched the bride’s bouquet. Karina and Alex may have had a traditional Catholic Ceremony, but it was also filled with light moments that had the church erupting with laughter.
Their reception was held in the historic El Cortez‘s famous Don Room. Filled with all their close friends and family, you could feel the love for the couple bursting at the seams. The night started with some heartfelt and sincere toasts to the couple, which were amazing and made you get a sense for who the couple was and how much they are loved. Alex’s romantic poetry for Karina adorned the Groom’s cake and also decorated each table. To quote one of my favorite ladies of fashion, Rachel Zoe, I died : )
It was special touches like the poetry that made this wedding stand out. Probably the most special touch of all was that Karina wore her Mother’s Wedding Dress! It was updated to reflect the today’s style, but if you are curious about what to do with your wedding dress today, you just might want to save it because your daughter might want to wear it when she’s ready to get married.
To Karina and Alex: We wish you many years of joy, laughter and most of all love. It was a pleasure and honor to be apart of your special day.
