“I first saw Nina in passing in college and thought to myself, “she is hands down the most beautiful woman at school.” Time went by and luckily, we were introduced to each other on the first day of my new internship – she was my co-worker. Over the first year we grew closer as friends… just friends.
While Nina was with her girls on a birthday trip in NYC, I revealed my feelings in true “Miguel” form…. I ordered a pink gorilla singing telegram! At an upscale restaurant in front of her friends, an embarrassing pink gorilla danced and sang a short poem I wrote for her birthday. It finally struck Nina that I had feelings for her and I managed to break through the friend zone! Seven blissful and adventurous years later, we’re here.
I have never met a more beautiful, loyal, intelligent, strong, and driven woman. I cannot believe that that same beautiful woman who left me speechless just passing by in college, will be the same woman that says, “I do.” – The groom, Miguel

A major perk of having your wedding at the Coronado Community Center is that the room is a blank slate. It is a big spacious room with big open windows looking out to the harbor which is perfect for executing any type of style wedding.
Sugar and Scribe desserts always look delicious!
One of the best parts of our job is getting to pick awesome vendors that will execute the style and vision that the couple is looking for. That was definitely the case for this wedding and we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out!
