Monica and Kristian – Immaculata Wedding

Monica and Kristian had a beautiful and amazing fun wedding this past fall. They got ready at the Hilton Mission Bay which is also where their reception was later. It was such a nice day with the coastal breeze flowing into the getting ready rooms. Monica was all smiles all day, laughing with her sisters and wedding party and the cutest little flower girl. After she got her dress on, she shared some special moments with her mom and dad. Monica and Kristian sent each other really sweet gifts and the guys all said wonderful things about Kristian.

Their ceremony was at the gorgeous Immaculata on the USD campus. They had a traditional Catholic ceremony and the priest was so entertaining! He actually sang the song Kung Fu Fighting during their ceremony and I have to say that is a first for us. It was so great. The two also handed out communion together which was also a first, but such a great way for the couple to greet their guests.

After their ceremony, they took some beautiful photos on the USD campus. The reception was back at the Hilton Mission Bay. The guests all joined cocktail hour overlooking the bay as the sun went down. Our favorite detail from cocktail hour was the names of the cocktails themselves! Anyone out there an Office fan? They not only used those names for their drinks, those are actually the names of their cats! They also had some live music during the cocktail hour and during dinner time.

They had invited a large amount of guests so they started out with a huge group photo after the grand entrance. Entertainment included a photobooth, wonderful speeches, and tons of dancing. They had a beautifully fun and joy filled day and we hope you enjoy their highlight film!
