Karina and Travis: a sliver-screen themed soiree
As if it were the setup to a great romantic comedy, Karina and Travis met on the CBS lot and fell in love. Since they connected through the entertainment industry, and since they’re both really into movies, they decided that movies and TV would have to be incorporated into their wedding. As wedding photographers, we love it when couples come up new and fun ideas to make their wedding unique. But not only were Karina and Travis’ wedding details fun for us to shoot, we absolutely loved working with these two! As you can see from the photos, of course they’re in love. But they also really seem to like each other and seemed to enjoy every aspect of the day… not to mention the fact that they are a beautiful couple and take great photos.
Karina and Travis were married at The Prado, a beautiful and romantic venue in Balboa Park. (Karina’s parents were also married here) Their event was perfect. Soft, romantic flower arrangements in white, yellow and orange (provided by the amazing Adina of Simply Adina Floral Designs) were offset perfectly by the teal bridesmaids dresses and men’s accessories. And the movie-inspired theme came together seamlessly, thanks in large part to the oversight and execution by The Best Wedding for You‘s Julie Scrivener.
But first… Karina and the ladies rented a super cool loft condo in the Gaslamp district, where they prepared for the big day. I love the contrast between the soft, feminine dress and the urban backdrop.
And yes, I know, we probably didn’t need to post this many photos of the dress and shoes, but there were just too many fun ones and I couldn’t choose.
Have you ever seen more adorable wedding shoes in your life?
Karina decided to get dressed in the upstairs brides’ room at The Prado.
I said I had fun with these ladies and I meant it! Because they were so on the ball, and ready in plenty of time, we were able to get in lots of great photos before the ceremony. Super funny, amazing attitudes, and yes, even punctual – Karina had the perfect crew.
The Prado is such a romantic place for a wedding
I just love how happy these two are!
Now for the movie themed reception! The ballroom at The Prado was a beautiful location for the happy event.
The bride and groom sat at a Princess Bride themed sweethearts table.
And of course, what is a movie without popcorn and candy?
In keeping with the theme, each table was decorated with a different movie or TV show. I may need to create a separate post just to show more of the unique table centerpieces — again, Adina‘s work was just amazing! And if I’m not mistaken, guests were specifically paired up with certain tables. For example, parents sat at the “Father of the Bride” table and coworkers sat at “The Office” table. So much fun. Here are just a few examples.

Karina and Travis – throughout the wedding planning process, you two have been fantastic to work with. You were so easy going and fun, and you had so many great ideas, we looked forward to this wedding from the day you booked us. And you didn’t disappoint! Everything turned out so great – we are just so grateful that you asked us to help you capture it! Thank you two for being such amazing clients – I really hope you love the photos as much as we do!
