Ben and Annie are pretty great. With some couples, you have to crack jokes to loosen the mood and make them smile, but that wasn’t the case with the Easton’s. They were smiling from the moment we met them. Everything came together so well on November 7 in San Diego. From the perfect Southern California weather to the boat race happening outside the wedding venue, the stage was set for a picture perfect (or video perfect…see what I did there?) wedding. The couple is from the Los Angeles area but they chose to have a San Diego wedding at the Kona Kai Resort because of the special significance it holds for the couple. To be honest, you would be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful setting. Did we mention the couple arrived at their reception on a sailboat? You should probably watch their video.

Failla Wedding Movie

Nick and Gina are both nurses and are among the kindest couples I have been around. In fact, if I ever get injured I hope it’s somewhere near their hospital because I have a feeling they take great care of their patients. Their May 30 ceremony at Palm Event Center was a near perfect day for this San Diego couple. It was a fun celebration of family and friends, which also featured some of the best dancers I’ve seen at a wedding in a long time.
