Tara and Matt’s Beautiful Day in Del Mar

Nov 15, 2012

When Tara was a little girl, she saw a bride in Seagrove Park in Del Mar and told her Dad, “I want to get married there one day.” Twenty something years later she meets the love of her life and moves to New York with him…and they come back to San Diego to get married in Del Mar, up the road from the park she saw as a little girl! Such a sweet story.  Tara and Matt have a really great story.  In fact, it was published in a New York magazine!  And we were lucky enough to get to photograph these guys in the two places that have been the setting of their story, New York City and San Diego.  Their engagement shoot in Central Park was so much fun! And it turned out to be a little sampler of how fun the wedding day would be.  Surrounded by family and friends from near and far, these guys got married under blue skies, with bright sun and an ocean view.  The celebration continued on the rooftop for a candle lit sunset dinner. And the partying continued on in the ballroom where much fun and merriment was had! It all ended with a bright sparkler exit. I’d say this was a perfect day! I hope you enjoy some of Rick and my favorite moments from that perfect day…
