Scripps Forum Wedding : Lindsey+Jonathan


It wasn’t just a pretty place in La Jolla, it was the place. The park that changed everything for Lindsey and Jonathan. Careful and cautious to not spew words with little weight, Lindsey waited to tell Jonathan how she felt about him. She waited for the perfect moment…which happened to be on a weekend trip to California. They drove to Mt. Soledad and sat gazing onto the Pacific Ocean in its full splendor. I love you, she said just above a whisper. And in that moment, they knew everything changed.

Years later, Lindsey whispered the same words, but this time she was looking into the eyes of her husband-to-be. Jonathan and Lindsey live in Texas, but planned a destination wedding in a place close to their hearts: La Jolla, California. With palm trees stretching to the sky, they walked into each others’ arms and soaked in the gravity of the moment.

Surrounded by their closest friends and family, they vowed not only to be the salt of the earth, but to live their lives in accordance to love, devotion, and tenderness. It was a perfect day for two very perfect people.

Lindsey and Jonathan, so glad you enjoyed Antigua and spent time relaxing in the sun! Thank you for the honor of documenting your love, but–moreso–your friendship. I can’t wait for you to show me the Tex Mex ropes in Dallas one day soon, but until then I wish you nothing but joy and happiness. You deserve nothing less. Much Love and Appreciation… j*

The day started perfectly in La Jolla, just outside of San Diego with truly spectacular weather…the day before it rained, but the skies cleared for a stunning backdrop…

Lindsey and the bridesmaids prepared at a nearby hotel then headed to Mt. Soledad, where Jonathan was eagerly waiting…

I absolutely love when clients opt to see each other before the ceremony…the moment belongs to them and they have the freedom to take photos at places that truly represent their love. And there’s also plenty of time for extra photos!

Initially Lindsey wasn’t sure about seeing Jonathan before the wedding ceremony, but by the look on her face, she made the right decision…

After the First Look, we headed to the wedding ceremony at Scripps Seaside Forum along the coast…

The wedding was beautiful and personal since they asked their Dallas pastor to marry them…such a sweet ceremony…

It was a really bright day, but the windows from Scripps Forum reflected light marvelously for wedding photos…

Jonathan and Lindsey are avid Polaroiders (yes, I make up words), so they bought loads of film to document their day…what fun detail for instant wedding pictures!

We headed to the beach for more wedding photos and sunset treated us nicely…or maybe the bridesmaids were so awesome they made any light look good…

Wedding photos under a pier? Sign me up!

It was so easy photographing Jonathan and Lindsey…they’re so in love they simply fell into each others’ arms effortlessly…

A special thank you goes to Lindsey’s sister, Marisa, who perfectly planned the wedding. She’s a former planner, so she beckoned bygone days marvelously for such a delightful wedding at Scripps Seaside Forum.

The First Dance…

I had to include a few reception photos because everything is bigger in Texas…including the dancing shoes. This group loved to party and I had a blast documenting all the fun!

No words…
