The Thursday Club Wedding
For Kristen and Jeremy, it was all about creating a memorable experience for their San Diego destination wedding. They planned a great Thursday Club wedding and put together a fun celebration for all of their friends and family that traveled to San Diego.
The day started at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina Bay Tower for some getting ready photos. The girls got ready in one of the high-rise suites. When I arrived, the girls were just about done with hair and makeup and ready to go from robes to dresses. But of course, not before doing a Fireball shot toast.
When your friends and family are all from out of town and staying at the same hotel, it’s a great idea to get a big party bus for transportation for the day. They reserved the Silver Star from San Diego Limo Bus which made transportation for everyone simple.
The ceremony was a short and sweet ceremony officiated by Bethel. Bethel personalized their ceremony by collecting some quotes from the Kristen and Jeremy separately, answers to questions that they both got to hear for the first time during the ceremony. It made for some fun moments. Another fun moment during the ceremony was their high five before their first kiss as husband and wife.
One of the things that couples have loved about my photography at the Thursday Club has been the sunset photos that I will do during weddings. I’ve always wanted to go down to Sunset Cliffs, but on a wedding day, there is never enough time. We had the perfect combination of things that allowed us to do so this time around. Since I knew Kristen and Jeremy were excited about sunset photos and sunset would take place at the beginning of open dancing. I asked them if they would want to take 30 minutes during dancing to go down to the cliffs and take some photos, which they were very excited to do. The results were amazing!
After that, we returned back for some dancing and more drinks. The craft beer flowed and the dance moves continued on the dance floor until the final song. It was a very fun night with some great people!
