San Diego Elopement - San Diego, CA - Phillip & Amanda

Amanda and Phillip’s elopement in Torrey Pines was stunning. Not only was the scenery gorgeous, but the love these two share is what really made this day incredible. We started at the cactus gardens in Balboa Park, and then made our way over to the Torrey Pines Glider Port for their ceremony. Phillip had already picked out a spot (that ended up being perfect and is exactly the spot I would have chosen - his new name is Philltography), so we hiked there and started the ceremony! After they read the vows they wrote for each other (I cried, duh) and had their first kiss, we hiked around some more and explored Torrey Pines while taking photos!

When Amanda first emailed me, she let me know that they were both unsure of the type of wedding they wanted to have. At first, they were thinking of a big, lavish wedding (Phillip even wanted to ride in on a horse), but they eventually changed their minds and as time went on, they realized that they wanted their wedding to be about them and what makes them happy. Their day ended up being so stress free for them both, and they also were able to leave the next day for their honeymoon without a hitch! Check out the photos of the best day ever below!
