The Westgate Hotel

Highlights of the Westgate Hotel

This luxury hotel is a tribute to the anteroom in the Palace of Versailles. The Grand Lobby is noted for its magnificent antiques, crystal chandeliers, and Persian carpets. The hotel is located right in the heart of San Diego, and has plenty to offer in terms of wedding photography, as you will see below.

Both the lobby and the mezzanine level of the hotel are ornately decorated, and joined by a fancy winding staircase. They are the perfect setting for fairytale-like wedding photos. There is an abundance of natural light coming through the elegantly draped windows, and plenty of classic furniture to use as props.

Groom Inspiration | Photo of the Week

By, August 23, 2017

For our Photo of the Week, we’re bringing a little groom inspiration (groom-spiration?) With his white shawl lapel tux, and black bowtie, our groom Charles hit it out of the park. His ensemble was perfect for his chic wedding to Nikia at the US Grant. A look this classic deserved a solo stylized portrait! 

When photographing Charles, we couldn’t help bringing out his wistful expression and infectious smile. Enjoy :)Portrait of a handsome groom
