Loews Coronado Bay Resort is just such a beautiful venue! You really can’t beat the ocean views and the Coronado Bridge in the background. These two had such fun getting ready rooms. They were actually facing each other in different buildings but it wasn’t planned that way. So we had to be a little creative to make sure they weren’t seeing each other from across the way!
I loved Jessica’s mug and the little flower girls and ring bearer were adorable. They bounced back and forth between the rooms and were the comic relief to ease the brides’ nerves. Lauren sent Jessica a very sweet gift of little maps from important places in their relationship. She absolutely loved it. Jessica gave her mom a sweet gift as well. And something I thought was so cute was that they could kiss because they were wearing the same lipstick. I have to try that with my mom or daughter someday!
Lauren was having too much fun with her wedding party, dancing and enjoying drinks in their personalized cups. She got a little nervous but I think all the dancing calmed her down. She got to have a little first look with her dad which was sweet. Then we all headed down for the first look once everyone was finished getting ready. They had a sweet private first look and then photo time with the whole wedding party.
One of my favorite things about Loews Coronado Bay Resort is the patio leading into the ceremony site. It’s just so lovely with some tropical trees and fire places. Lauren and Jessica had a pre ceremony cocktail time where the guests got to enjoy grilled cheese sandwiches, yum! We loved that they had each set of their parents include writings in the ceremony and they wrote their vows together.
The reception was gorgeous with beautiful flowers and an amazing cake. They had wonderful speeches and the entire wedding had no problem dancing the night away. We hope you enjoy this lovely wedding!
From the brides: We just watched our movies, and you two did such an amazing job! We absolutely love both the highlight film and the feature film! It’s amazing getting to re-live our wedding day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! <3
