A Wedding With Two Rotties!!  

Pauline and Henri traveled from Arizona to elope on dog beach with Steve and I. Rex and Hank their beautiful rotties made the trip and were included in the ceremony. 

We love it when that happens!

If you're thinking about including you pups, we've been offering dog friendly ceremonies since 1987.  Now that we have a dog rescue here in San Diego, we seem to be getting so many more couples who want to include their beloved dogs. 

Know that we're that best choice,
we've been doing dog friendly weddings for over 25 years!

Tiny Beach Weddings and Elopement Packages 
for groups under 25 
San Diego's Most Trusted Elopement Company

**  Tips for dog friendly weddings **
~ Run your dog in the morning  or have a friend do it for you 
~ Bring lots of treats
~Remember anything can happen, so if you want everything 
PERFECT, a dog friendly wedding won't be that, or even close!

A worst case scenerio...we had a bride who was pee'd upon by a passing dog...
she was great and didn't mind at all :)

It's worth mentioning that there are other dogs on the beach,
because it's a free place to have your wedding, and it's also a "leash free" area.

Happy Anniversary to US :)
Celebrating Family

We're celebrating our 27th anniversary today!   Once a year we officially pull out this photo and celebrate how life is full of surprises.   This is the very beach where we do our  elope weddings- who knew that a couple of pups from Seattle would end up having Coronado Beach as their office?  

Steve and I have been joining happy couples in marriage starting just 3 months after our own wedding, in September of 1987.  Since that time, we've also been raising a family, starting a non profit dog rescue, working together side by side through it all.

We know this place by heart, it's part of our story.  It can be part of your story too ...

We absolutely love the updates from our happy brides and grooms!
Fiona and Edgar eloped with us a few years back
on Coronado Beach, CA.
We couldn't believe they traveled all the way from Scotland
 to elope with us here in San Diego.  They make their home in Edinburgh.

Now the proud parents of two little girls. 

Isn't this photo the cutest thing ever? 

And  their wedding day many moons ago with Steve.

Eloping is not only fun, but it's smart!

Networking With our Colleagues !

A huge shout out to Pastor Mike Mitschke!
He always helps us with our San Diego wedding licenses
when couples can't get to the courthouse. 

Today, we received a call from a couple who were planning to get married at the courthouse in San Marcos tomorrow.
As you may know San Marcos in on fire,
the roads have been closed, schools are closed. 

We sent the couple over to Mike,
he lives nearby and we know that he will do an awesome job
issuing the marriage license
( he is one of the county notaries) and then marry them. 

He's been doing weddings for over 50 years.   
Thank you again, you are a great friend.

Spring is in the air-- Love is in the air !

Smart couples from all over the country
decided to Elope to Coronado Beach with us.
Saved a ton of stress, money and had a fabulous time!

It's Easter weekend, and it's oh so true,
eleven couples have chosen to "Elope to San Diego
from all over the country:
Wisconsin, Utah, Arizona, Louisiana and many couples
from San Diego and other parts of California.

Thank you for choosing us,
we feel so lucky to have such great couples to work with. 

Not everyone decided to have our photography package, along
with their ceremony, but those who did will be thrilled in a few weeks when
their photos arrive in a pretty little pink box.

We're sharing a few pics and it's only Friday night...
and will have more photos to share later in the weekend. 

Thank you Pastor Mike for getting the license for Perry and Kerstin!
They weren't able to get to the courthouse,
and he delivered the marriage license to their hotel. So
they could have a last minute wedding on
the waterfront behind the
convention center.

And, to top it off, I've been brushing up on my Instagram...
who would ever think you could get such cool images from a cell phone ?

Don't Let A Little Thing Like RAIN Ruin Your Wedding Day in San Diego !

last minute weddings: 858 945 8341.  elopement packages, elope to san diego, beach weddings in san diego,happy weddings, happy couples, happy elopements, happy elopement packages, happy beach weddings, happy san diego eloping

Just LOVED this article I found this morning..
uplifting and inspirational- and only takes a few minutes to read:

It made me of one our favorite couples, Marci and Todd.  
To say that it rained on their wedding day
would be to put it lightly. 
It poured, it showered, it was a monsoon, a heavy drizzle, a downpour....
it even made our years of doing weddings in Seattle look mild ! 

Marci and Todd laughed, they enjoyed it and made the best of it,
because they were happy to be getting married
and have their loved ones with them.
It turned out to be one of their happiest days, and ours too. 
Says so much about attitude and perspective


we always start out in life with such a happy face :)
