Christine and Zach: old and new traditions

We were so excited to photograph Christine and Zach’s wedding, especially after having such an amazing time with them on their engagement shoot. We really loved how much of themselves they put into coming up with themes for their engagement and wedding – incorporating their interests. Their engagement session featured Zach’s retro car, while their wedding was all about their love of craft beer.

I especially love capturing weddings that bring together families with different cultural backgrounds. Christine and Zach’s wedding day began as Christine’s family hosted a traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony, inviting Zach’s family to participate. Zach’s family had traveled to San Diego from Michigan for the wedding.  Then, after taking some photos at the Torrey Pines Gliderport, we headed to their wedding venue for a western ceremony and reception.

32N Brewing Company was the perfect spot for their craft beer themed celebration. A Black and Tan pouring ceremony, customized coasters for each guests, and decor featuring hops and growlers all made for a cohesive and fun experience for everyone involved. In honor of Zach’s family, the bar even featured a guest brew from Michigan: Bells Brewery.
