Karin and Ricardo were married back in May at La Jolla Shores. I love La Jolla beach weddings!This wedding is extremely special to me, as I was also the officiant! Yes, you read that right! I was extremely honored when Karin and Riccardo asked me to perform the ceremony. Karin and her family have been a part of my life for well over a decade. She and her mother Bev offered me my very first job out of college at a full-service advertising agency. At this job, I learned so much about project management and event planning. It was a major stepping stone in me fulfilling a dream of being a wedding planner. They have always treated me like family, and I was so touched to be involved in this way.

Karin has always had a beautiful eye for design. She has the most incredible shoe collection I’ve ever seen. Her wedding shoes did not disappoint! I knew all of the details would stunning and unique to her and Riccardo.

Ricardo and Karin had an intimate group on the wedding day. Their wedding party was comprised of their three kiddos-Cruz, Cheyenne and Ricky. Since the wedding, they welcomed a little girl–beautiful Priscilla!

The dinner was set overlooking La Jolla Cove at Brockton Villa. If you haven’t been there, you really need to. It is a quaint, historical home, and Karin and Rick’s group took up most of the restaurant. It really felt as if the reception took place in a relative or friend’s home. Below are some of the sweet details.

Congrats to the entire family! I am so happy that your beautiful family is now complete! Thank you again for the honor of marrying you and assisting you during the planning process!
