We had the pleasure of joining the rehearsal lunch at Tom Ham's Lighthouse. The weather was absolutely superb - the kind that makes you feel bad that you're enjoying high 70 degree weather while the rest of the country is in a winter freeze. The view of San Diego is spectacular from Harbor Island and reminds me of how blessed I am to call myself a, "San Diegan."
It was such a beautiful gathering of both families and friends. Vaness and Daniel both wore their wedding colors - her in shimmering gold, him in bold red. Too cute!
The two families together.
I somehow managed to not be in any other photo but this one with my big ol' mouth. :)
I love Vaness' smile and how just lights up her whole face.
The bride and groom's welcome speech.
Vaness looks even smaller with such a huge camera! :)
10 shots later...
Proof that neither Daniel nor Vaness' dad could stay away from the camera... and I completely understand. :)
Tristan's (Daniel's younger brother) speech.
Daniel's tie even has gold in it! :)
Eliza's (Vaness' younger sister) speech
The food was super yummy and very well displayed! I loved how every dish came with an orchid. :)
Spinach & artichoke dip with house-made potato chips
Calamari strips with pineapple jalapeno dipping sauce
California Gold Salad
Adam (and most of the other guests) had the shrimp basket.
I had the club sandwich. YUM!
And what Vaness & Daniel celebration would it be without a delicacy from Hans & Harry?! Adam and I are hooked!
Practicing for the wedding day!
Vaness and siblings.
And of course, boys being boys. LOL!
Coming up next! Bridal slumber party!
