USD & Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club Wedding Photography | Marissa & Craig

We’ve been dying to show you these images from Marissa and Craig’s wedding!  Marissa and Craig tied the knot at the USD Founders Chapel in San Diego, CA on July 25, 2009.  The Founders Chapel is an absolutely beautiful wedding ceremony location at USD.  The USD campus is so beautiful to begin with!  But it paled in comparison with Marissa.:) She was a stunning bride and had her eye on every detail.  The wedding party split up to get ready – the bride and her family were at the Doubletree, and the groom and groomsmen got ready at the Grand Del Mar (in Del Mar, CA) – and wow, is it GRAND!  It was so wonderful to be back in San Diego to photograph a wedding!

Here are some of our favorite images from the wedding day.  The entire event was coordinated by Erin Melton of Behind the Bride, who was not only super fun to hang out with, but was an amazing coordinator.:) She will coordinate wherever you are, so if you’re in San Diego or San Francisco, look her up!
