Our Son, Ben is a Chaplain at the VA in Fargo, and helped to make this Veteran's Wedding Dream Come True!

Our son, Benjamin who is Chaplain at the VA in Fargo, just shared this story with us about one of his patients, Eldon. It was the dream of Eldon,  to walk his daughter down the aisle at her wedding. 

 It seemed all but impossible as he was so ill. 
Ben was part of the team that made that happen for the vet,
just a few days before he passed away. 

You can see the story here: 

Ben has helped us with weddings in the past on Coronado Beach too!

Twenty years and counting! Congrats Nicolle and Paul :)

This is the kind of story that I love to tell !!!    About a couple who lived happily ever after.... and I was there to see the beginning of their journey together, their wedding day.  August 25, 1995!

It was such a beautiful wedding,  that I managed to capture a shot that received a National "Fuji Masterpiece" award.  A few months after their wedding in 1996, I entered in competition and won that year for the best wedding party shot for 1996 :)   I wish I could find the photo, but it's buried in mountains of photos... someday to be organized.

Love this marker of time, it was the last day I was 39 --when spent the day with Nicolle and Paul, Anthony our youngest son, who was my assistant that day, he was invited to ride in the limo with all the "guys".  I'm not sure but I think he had his first shot of tequila that day :)

Congrats and thanks for sharing this with us!
I miss Seattle, but only Seattle in summer.
Here's to the next 20!

Summer is flying by!!!

dog rescues in san diego, rescue dogs, rescue dog adoptions, lucky pup dog rescue
dog friendly weddings, lucky pup dog rescue adoption center

The summer is just flying by, can't believe it's been over a month
since I've been here to share. 

Another busy summer, and we t
hank all of our couples for making
us San Diego's Most Trusted elopement company! 

NINE couples got married this week on Coronado Beach.
We hear all the time how much couples just LOVE that we work
together as a married couple,
because so many of the other "elopement" companies in San Diego
just send random wedding vendors to their weddings.
I guess there is something to be said for
working together as a team :)

Congrats to each one of you,
we know you had a fantastic time
at your wedding because we did too!
And so much fun in San Diego. The weather has been perfect,
well, maybe a little too hot. Sorry about the parking at the hotel.
Thank you for sharing your
happiest day with us!
We were excited to extend 2 military couples our
"$99 Saturday morning" special this week.

When we're not hanging out on the beach with our happy couples,
we rescue shelter dogs!  We talk about it all the time, and hope
we're not boring anyone--

In 2011, we founded our 501c3 non profit dog rescue
and since that time, we've been working to towards opening an adoption center.

So happy to announce that this  month,
we are opening San Diego's FIRST
retail adoption center for shelter dogs!  

Lucky Pup Dog Rescue Adoption Center

So exciting, many more lives will be saved by having our pups
seen by more adopters. Those who don't want to go to the shelter
will find groomed, spayed/neutered, microchipped, happy dogs! 
Our dogs come from the highest kill shelters in Southern California,
in San Bernardino County and Moreno Valley where
dogs are killed after just a few days of being picked up.
  The situation is dire and time is of the essence. 

Our grand opening will be on August 30 2-6pm
in UC Marketplace 3855 Governor Drive,
just next door to Sprouts, in the kiosk.
San Diego, California 92122

Thank you to all of our amazing volunteers, donors and adopters.
We love you!
A special thank you to "Chive on California" peeps
who donated over $ 18K to open our center
and support our rescue work
and UC Marketplace owners who donated our space.  

We always love to have new dog loving volunteers,
and know that your donations are tax deductible.
When you give to your neighborhood rescues,
your money works in your community. 
We offer the exact same tax deduction
as the big box animal organizations
without the overhead they have. 
IRS 90 0753223

po box 3484 san diego, ca 92163 

GRAND OPENING  August 30 Sunday 2-6pm dogs welcome

Our next fundraiser!  Oct 22 2-6pm Mission Brewery
room for 300 peeps and their dogs! Let's pack the place for the pups!
