Thank you to Paul from Paul Douda Photography for sharing such a lovely wedding story!








Here's their story!


When we asked Caitlin & Dan what their wedding style was, they responded they just wanted to have a fun and a relaxed day. At the end of the night, Caitlin said it was exactly the wedding she hoped for. Caitlin & Dan got married at Kona Kai Resort in San Diego right on the harbor sand. The day was perfect and warm (as most Fall nights are in San Diego) and they were surrounded by only 25 of their closest family and friends.


They had lots of games such as corn hole, ring toss, Chinese checkers and an extra large Jenga! When it came time for their dinner, every guest sat at the same table to break bread and celebrate the happy couple. It was the perfect set up! To top the night off, Caitlin & Dan shared their first dance with their toes in the sand and roasted marshmallows with their closest loved ones. We were so honored to have captured such a perfect day for this beautiful couple!











Caitlin & Dan's Proposal Story: 

After meeting online on Bumble, Caitlin & Dan instantly hit it off! After several years, Dan knew it was time to pop the question. After having dinner at their favorite sushi restaurant, they decided to take a walk around Balboa Park. Unbeknownst to Caitlin, Dan was trying to find the perfect setting for her to turn away so he can pop down on one knee but Caitlin kept turning around too fast. After arriving at Caitlin's favorite tree in Balboa Park, Dan knew she would get lost in its grand beauty. While she was gazing up at the tree, he knelt down and proposed right there and the rest is history!
