Wedding: Balboa Friendship Garden

I had the privilege of photographing a beautiful wedding at the Japanese Friendship Gardens in June. This awesome couple are honestly just the sweetest and genuine people. They are two people that are truly meant for one another and it was so much fun to be a part of their day. They met in high school, went their separate ways in college and then found their way back to each other. Now if that isn't real love, heck I don't know what is. They really knew they were made for each other, figured it out, and they did the best thing possible....they got married!

The wedding and reception were at the Balboa Friendship Gardens in Balboa Park. This place is absolutely stunning, the grounds have surprising beauty around every corner. I had no clue this place was even here until I took this couples engagement photos! Definitely a secret treasure in San Diego.

We had a great time at the wedding; the food was delicious, everyone danced, there was a lip sync competition, kids with glow sticks ran around and danced until they tuckered out. Beautiful wedding and evening full of family and friends. Congratulations to Ken and Karen, you two are my peoples!
