Though they both went to school in San Diego, it wasn’t until after they left California that they met as colleagues in Arizona. Katie and Scott fell in love in Phoenix, and are soon to begin this new chapter of married life in Boulder, where Scott will begin an MBA program and Katie will start teaching.Taking advantage of their knowledge of San Diego, the couple organized a wonderful weekend for their out of town guests.Beginning with a Mexican dinner in Old Town, and festivities at the new Gaslamp Marriot, complete with views into Petco Park.
Pouring champagne in the limo to begin, the bridal party took the limo up to USD, Katie’s alma mater, and there we created some portraits on campus.
It was very simple ceremony, in the grand Don Room at El Cortez. Candles in glass votives lined the aisles, reflecting off the polished dark wood floors.
The Don Room was flipped for the reception, and the tables srrounded the dance floor. I even found out the Scott hand painted the numbered table centerpieces.
The bouquets of roses were a delicate porcelain pink, the bodice was hand beaded, and bridesmaid dresses were a lovely shade of dark grey to set off the pinks in the flowers.
After the ceremony, friend and family celebrated, danced, and toasted the couple throughout the night. It was a beautiful wedding, and wonderful to share the delight with Katie, Scott and their families.
