alisa and matt's wedding at the grand del mar in san diego




i am super stoked to do this post!
why, you ask.
because it features one of the hottest couples on the planet!
alisa and matthew kicked off our 2009 wedding season at THE GRAND DEL MAR right here in sunny san diego. it was the perfect day, at the perfect location, with the perfect couple, for the perfect intimate wedding.
Yes, it was that perfect. :)
see for yourselves.
we present to you, alisa and matthew.




and their son, Kingston. isn't he precious? this is one of his GQ poses with iPhone in hand.










alisa's smile makes us smile. can you tell she's happy to be married to matt? :)




























alisa and matthew's combined hotness nearly burned down the library.






















the rings just had one thing to say.
do i dazzle you?




thank you so much alisa and matthew. you set the bar extremely high for 2009 (or any other year for that matter). you are both wonderful wonderful people and we could not be happier for you. congratulations! may you both have a long happy life together.
we also want to send a warm and very sincere thank you to your family and guests. everyone, and i mean everyone, was so kind and very patient while we stole you away for pictures.
while we're handing out thank you's, we want to also send a BIG one out to your pal and ours, jennifer. without her, we would have never met. mahalo jennifer!!

Yummy stuff always!
