Jenny and Alex’s wedding celebration was spread over three days as most of their guests were traveling from the UK and they wanted to create a memorable wedding weekend. Most of the planning was also done from the UK and they took a DIY approach with much of the wedding relying on friends and family to help pull the event together.

Jeremy & Joshua made their commitment of love in Balboa Park in the Inez Grant Parker Memorial Rose Garden. The park has always been one of their favorite places in San Diego. The circular ceremony set in the middle of the garden was made even move special after their vows when the Officiant Rebekah announced them “Over the Rainbow.” It was a beautiful ceremony in the afternoon followed by their reception at The Lafayette Hotel.
They had about 100 attendees from all across the nation. Just about every out of town guest stayed at their favorite hotel and loved it. The Lafayette
had SO many levels of charm; the pool, the VIP cabana, giant chess, Red Fox Room, Hope 46 & an over all Old Hollywood charm. Not to mention that it lies in their beloved North Park community. They made their grand entrance to the hotel walking through the beautiful lobby where they toasted with Rosè bubbly & tasted tapas with their magical guest. They still threw in some traditions, like cake cutting and first dances with their mamas, but when they toasted at the beginning of the event, they requested to simply have fun and celebrate the day with them. At one point they jumped in the pool, followed by their wedding party jumping in with them!
