We just loved hearing about Nicole and Marc’s story! Marc had dreamt of living in California and that theme ran through the day. He had a California flag with his name embroidered on it, and the speeches were so sweet talking about how he achieved his dreams. We especially loved during the first look when they talked about how they were walking on the boardwalk and thought it would be awesome to get married in San Diego. And then not long after, here they are!
They got ready, married and partied all at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. It was such a cool venue. They got the neatest room for getting ready with big windows and incredible views. The guys had a little trouble with the bowties but they looked dapper when they finished getting ready. The ladies had a great time together and Nicole gave them such a sweet speech to thank them all for being there.
Marc and Nicole had their first look on the balcony overlooking the San Diego bay and then the ceremony was inside. Marc’s dad officiated the ceremony had they had amazing personal vows. After the ceremony, the guests all moved to another room for cocktail hour while Nicole and Marc did fun photos down on the boardwalk.
The reception was in another room on the same floor, the light pouring in from the big windows onto the beautiful cake and lovely flowers. They had lots of really great speeches to lead everyone through dinner and then to dancing. The sunset was beautiful so they went back out on the balcony for some more photo time. They did a hora, cake cutting, a bouquet toss and a garter toss (which ended in someone going the the ground for it!) and then into fun dancing time.
We really enjoyed getting to know these two and hope you get a glimpse of who they are through their wedding film!
