Outdoor Weddings: Tips to Remember – Tip #1

Ahh, we all LOVE our beach and our beautiful SUNSHINE here in San Diego!  Newscasters have it easy here, temps average 70-80 degrees with little chance of rain or otherwise. However... there we were, again in mid-September, with OVER 100-DEGREES hitting the thermostats inside and out, causing harm to our favorite delectable condiment:  BUTTER CREAM!  [...]

Hawaiian-Themed Vow Renewal

Real Wedding :: Briana + Steve

The phrase goes: "like father, like son," yet for this real wedding feature, we challenge that idiom. To start, backtrack a few years.  It was the wedding of Cheyne (pronounced like Shane) + Megan, and let's just say: it was a huge deal!  The couple had just won the "Amazing Race" together, and as a [...]
