Real Wedding: Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines

By sdwedding

Karen is a big fan of the show “The Amazing Race” so Mitch decided to have the day mimic the show by sending her on a 17 hour non-stop, jam packed adventure through San Diego and LA. With 15 friends and family texting and calling in clues to Karen’s phone throughout the day, the couple went to 11 different locations for a special surprise or task to complete. At the last pit stop, Mitch got down on one knee and proposed with a custom-made ring.
 Mitch and Karen were married at the Hilton La  Jolla Torrey Pines overlooking the Torrey Pines Golf Course and the Pacific Ocean. Sparing no expense the couple created a personalized, comfortable and elegant wedding for their family and friends. During cocktail hour, guests were entertained with the ePod talking photo booth and Cuban cigar roller providing hand-rolled, custom banded cigars for all guests to enjoy while relaxing on the lounge style furniture. Each guest found a personalized note from the Bride and Groom at their seat that held a shared memory and a special thank you.
The couple plan to take a 3 week honeymoon to Japan and China where they plan to climb Mt. Fuji and ride camels across the Gobi Desert.
