Katie + Scott at the Admiral Kidd Club, San Diego

Katie has been many things to me over the years- a roommate, a (sorority) sister, a partner in crime, and above all, an amazing friend. When Katie and Scott first started dating in college we were all excited because it felt like my group of friends hadn't lost a member (as it often feels when a friend falls in love), but gained one. Scott became a permanent fixture in our lives and their wedding day was pretty much the culmination of all the reasons why I love the two of them as a couple. Not only are they adorable (Katie is an elementary school teacher, Scott is a firefighter- doesn't get much more perfect than that) but they are fun times a million. There is never a dull moment with the two and laughter is guaranteed!

Coming up on full blown 'wedding season' soon, I had my mind set on enjoying their special day thoroughly as a guest and only a guest. No working for me that day! And I did enjoy it to the fullest. Katie and Scott planned the whole thing themselves, and did an amazing job infusing the day with so many personal details. I just had to share the pictures with you (all courtesy of Photography by Chana and Don) when Katie e-mailed me the link as they are gorgeous, and her team of wedding vendors all had a part in making the day the memorable occasion that it was. Enjoy!

Her Pronovias gown was divine!

Their fabulous photographers took them to an amazing location- complete with breathtaking ocean views and a charming lighthouse- to take pictures before there ceremony

Katie's favorite color is purple, and I love how she chose a deep plum shade as the main color for the wedding details. It turned out so vibrant!

Scott and his groomsmen are all filled with personality, as I'm sure you can gather by their aviator sunglasses and air jumps. It is so great when the guys let loose and have fun with the pictures- let the good times roll!

The ceremony was right on the bay- such a fantastic location, with the downtown San Diego skyline in the distance

Each of the tables was named after a year of Katie and Scott's lives, and included a picture of each of them from the time. Some were just HILARIOUS! It really encouraged guests to mingle, and walk around to look at the other tables.

My favorite part of the night was when Scott and his groomsman Loren performed a choreographed breakdancing routine. The crowd was LOVING it!
