Coronado Community Center Wedding | Carmellee and Alvin

By, June 03, 2016

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.

Day 6 of 12: Purple wedding color inspiration

By, December 24, 2011

Today is all about the color purple! Purple is one of the most popular wedding colors we’ve seen in 2011, perhaps because of its cool and warm attributes that work all year round.  Purple evokes romance and creativity, and combines the calming feeling of blue with the energy of red. Historically, purple is a symbol of royalty, wisdom and dignity – which is fitting for the bride and groom on their big day!

The boldness and vibrancy of purple can add a lush look to wedding photographs. Scroll down to see how purple can be incorporated into wedding details, such as bridal shoes, signage and jewel tone uplighting to create the mood at the reception!  

We’ll be here tomorrow on Christmas morning to bring you our next color of the season – RED!
