This Cabrillo National Monument wedding was a true coastal, cliff-side dream come true!
Lexi and Miguel wanted a small, intimate crowd and an epic location to say their vows to each other. This San Diego National Park certainly delivered with its stunning ocean views and iconic lighthouse!This place is so extremely underrated and I always suggest it as a must-see for out of town visitors.
As we were driving to the ceremony location, I started getting weather alerts for a high wind advisory and to proceed with caution. A wind warning at a cliffside wedding might intimidate some photographers but I knew that the powerful wind would just add an extra adventure factor to the photos.. I was so right! Lexi also wore the most perfect bohemian dress from BHLDN that flowed so elegantly in the breeze! I couldn’t stop swooning over it the entire time.
First, we started the day with a touching first look between the bride and groom. This private moment was really important to them and I always feel so lucky that I get to witness moments like that. Seeing the love, joy and excitement for what’s about to happen always makes my heart swell!
Then, after some fun wedding party photos and a heartfelt ceremony, we explored the monument to take advantage of its many stunning backdrops. Lastly, Lexi and Miguel headed off to their intimate reception and started their new lives at husband and wife!
All in all, I absolutely love this Cabrilo National Monument wedding and hope I get to return for another one soon!
