Rachael and Mike celebrated their union with the magical ambiance of Petco Park in the background. The couple said ‘I Do’ on the rooftop terrace overlooking the ballpark, as both are avid fans of the sport.
The day began with the ladies getting ready across the street at the Marriott. They looked amazing thanks to makeup artist, Kelsey and hair stylist, Nicole. These ladies had plenty of fun before the ceremony!
As did the gentlemen!
It was a perfect summer evening in San Diego, with a golden California sunset. Country Flowers & Antiques set the stage for a spectacular evening with beautiful hand crafted flowers that adorned the arch under which Rachael and Mike said their vows. Their wedding was officiated by their pastor, Ned from their church.
The style of the wedding was both rustic and romantic, incorporating blush colors with burlap, lace and crystal accents. Along with the flowers, Carolyn of Country Flowers & Antiques also enhanced the romance of the night with linens that created a gorgeous backdrop for accents placed throughout the reception such as hand crafted signage made by the couple.
Robby Ticknor of Ticknor Photography was able to capture the most fun moments of the day. The boisterous bridal party enjoyed taking photos in the historic gaslamp district dancing together across the street after the ceremony. This group was set to have a good time from the moment the day started!
The reception was a hit. Guests dined on backyard style cuisine artfully crafted by Bekkers Catering. The home run was the mashed potato bar! Friends and family were able to layer potatoes with their favorite toppings, a fun way to feast. Dave with Bill Calhoun DJ services blew it out of the park with the music. You can be sure there was plenty of dancing all night for this exciting celebration!
Sweet Layers created a glittery tower of desserts! With both a cake and small parfait style options, they added to the sparkle and magic of the event! When it was time to cut the cake, Rachael and Mike couldn’t have been more excited. The decadent desserts were almost too good to be true!
The stunning images of the ceremony and reception in the center of Downtown San Diego provided for a truly special evening. We wish this couple all of the happiness and love they showed on their special day throughout their life, and more! Rachael and Mike had a grand slam occasion on their special day!
