November 2010

There is a certain charm to this western themed wedding that  warms the cockles of the heart. Perhaps it’s the juxtaposition of a formal wedding gown paired with a good ole’ pair of cowboy boots, or maybe it was the trusty flask tucked into the saloon style garter belt. Either way, Jennifer and Brett threw a hoot-n-any they won’t soon forget at Old Poway Park with its turn-of-the-century California setting and running steam locomotive as a picture perfect western backdrop.

Spearheaded by Blake Miller of ProMotion Entertainment, decades flew by as the music took a turn from country to disco, finishing the evening in the 21st Century with some good old fashioned dance music.

Everybody’s meetin’ at the Town Hall to celebrate the union of Jennifer and Brett.

Congratulations Jennifer and Brett! You make a beautiful pair.



This fun loving couple married  at  Alcazar Garden in Balboa Park, inspired by the gardens of Alcazar Castle in Seville Spain. Following the ceremony Jessica and Russell celebrated Hawaiian style, turning a private backyard into an exotic paradise.

Before the ceremony Jessica and Russell amused themselves, mingling with Spanish Baroque painters of the 17th Century while photographer, Scott Draper, captured priceless candid moments. Jessica was so comfortable in front of the camera, it was no surprise to find out she is a former model.

Jessica was a radiant bride with a contagious laugh!

Scott captured Russell’s sense of humor, who managed to remain “cool” just moments before the ceremony.

“What are you doin’ after?”

The bride’s bouquet and groom’s boutineer adeptly tied the Hawaiian theme into the ceremony with vibrant and unique florals designed by Jennifer Culhane Celebrations

The reception, held at a private home, added to the charm of this intimate reception. Coordinated by Jennifer Culhane Celebrations, every last detail was arranged to create a festive Hawaiian celebration.

Fitting with the theme, this delicious looking cake sprinkled with real purple flowers was baked by Harina Dulce.

It wouldn’t be a Hawaiian Party without hula dancers.

Guests joined in with their own style of hula dancing!

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Gore!
