Although Jessica and Nima live in Arizona, they held their Super Bowl Sunday wedding in San Diego, at the Westgate Hotel. They exchanged vows on the roof deck of the hotel, in front of an intimate group of family and friends. It was a beautiful morning, with a sweeping view of downtown San Diego, and plenty of gorgeous California sunshine. There was definitely “game day” excitement in the air :)
While photographing, we took advantage of the huge windows at the Westgate. This gave us plenty of gorgeous, natural light, and enabled us to highlight Jessica and Nima’s stylish attire.
Because this couple had traveled from out of state, we felt it was especially important to incorporate as much of the city as possible. To capture the amazing architecture surrounding the Westgate Hotel’s deck, where Jessica and Nima exchanged vows, we employed a wide-angle lens.
By using off-camera flash, we were able to create dynamic, high key portraits, like the one below. This helped to mix up the style and mood of the day’s photography. We reserved this specific technique for the more elaborate areas of the hotel, in order to match the Westgate’s ornate décor.
After the ceremony, guests were treated to an incredible brunch buffet by the Westgate.
The dining selections included a fresh sushi bar, a white chocolate fountain, and custom crepe and omelet stations.
All in all, this wedding was a total touchdown. For more of Jessica and Nima’s “Super” Sunday wedding, please click here.
