Jacqueline + Thomas – La Jolla Shores Hotel Wedding

Jacqueline and Thomas are just the cutest!! They traveled all the way from Texas to have a Southern CA beach wedding. The La Jolla Shores Hotel was a beautiful venue. They got married in November and had the absolute best weather. They gave each other gifts and wrote each other cards. I just loved Jacqueline’s boat shoes, perfect for walking down the sandy aisle. She had a gorgeous bouquet with photos of lost loved ones attached and adorable vow books. She and her mom just were so cute while they were getting her ready. They were telling stories and laughing. The guys had a good time getting ready as well. They had really sweet suits and just relaxed while overlooking the ocean.

Jacqueline and her dad had a first look together that was so sweet. Then she had a first look with Thomas and they took a bunch of photos with all of their close family and friends. It was so wonderful to see so many people who care about them traveling to their wedding!

They had a sweet ceremony on the sand overlooking the waves. The two wrote sweet vows and the officiant had some wise words for them. There were flocks of seagulls flying overhead and there were the most beautiful blue skies that day. I loved the little flower girl coming down the aisle so slowly and carefully.

The cocktail hour was so lovely and I thought the driftwood name cards were sweet. La Jolla Shores Hotel has such a nice patio for cocktail hour. All the cute signs that they found to decorate with were such a great touch. The reception was on another beautiful patio facing the ocean and sunset. They had a few more really cute signs and beachy decor around the tables. Jacqueline’s dad gave a touching speech along with the wedding party. And everyone had a great time on the dance floor while enjoying a beautiful dessert spread!

Hope you enjoy!
