Located in historic Balboa Park, Saint Francis Chapel is one San Diego’s favorite choices for wedding ceremonies. The Chapel is positioned across the street from the main entrance to the Museum of Man, and is a non-denominational sanctuary. Notable features of this venue include an “old mission” style, and an ornate gold altar.
Honey and Armando, one of our beautiful couples who exchanged vows at the Chapel, were so sweet and genuine. They were truly a pleasure to work with. Below you can see a few of our favorite images from their day, from Honey’s moment of quiet bliss before she entered the Chapel, to the concluding wedding party at the Hard Rock Hotel.
I love this moment of serenity as the beautiful bride gets ready to enter the Chapel. Everything about this image is classic and timeless, like the bride herself.
In these images, you can tell how much the bride and groom love each other. Their joy and sense of fun really comes through in this shot, and I love how they’re framed by the ornate doors.
It is so fitting that wedding photos were taken at Balboa Park’s giant tree roots – it’s a perfect metaphor for their new life together. I love the contrast of textures between Honey’s crisp white dress and the gnarly roots.
Everything about this photo is beautiful: the late afternoon light, the rich colors, the wooden bridge, and of course the lovely couple!
The whole event was romantic and sweet, from the decorations, to the vows, to the bride and groom themselves. This was such a charming day!
