We recently photographed the Coronado Community Center wedding of Carmellee and Alvin. According to Carmellee, Alvin is a quiet but silly guy, and the perfect compliment to her free spirit. When they first met at work, it was instant butterflies, and love at first sight. This perfectly paired couple chose San Diego as a destination wedding spot, and we were excited to capture amazing images for their big day.
The purple blooming flowers at The Coronado Community Center went along beautifully with this purple-themed wedding.
Because most of the bridal party and guests were also from Sacramento, the event was a little extra special for everyone.
Flower crowns were made available for the guests, which added a playful hippie vibe (below).
During the wedding, Carmellee and Alvin held a coin ceremony, which is an old Filipino tradition. The coins represent prosperity and financial security in each other. For added significance, Carmellee used the coins from her mother’s wedding in the Philippines.
Getting Ready Location: Glorietta Bay Inn (Penthouse Suite)
Wedding Venue: Coronado Community Center
