San Diego Elopement

Living in the midwest, it is not everyday where I can go to a beach and create a luxury experience for two people in love. This past February, a luxury beach elopement is just what I was able to do! Joy Bijedic, Being Joy Photography, and I styled and planned this luxury elopement experience for Malwina and Shane. This happy couple was originally from the midwest and both relocated out to San Diego due to their jobs. Everything turned out beautifully and Joy and I could not be more proud of this experience. We had a rock star team of vendors that was able to come together and pull off a romantic dinner on the La Jolla Cove beach.

San Diego Love Fest

Stephanie was interning at the Wide World of Sports complex in Disney World and Alex was working for a marketing company on special assignment.  One day at work, Stephanie was scheduled to work security… Don’t get me wrong, Stephanie is a strong girl, but not very intimidating!  Sometimes, the universe conspires to put you in direct path with your future spouse. In this case, it put Stephanie on a direct collision course with her future husband, Alex! Stephanie, having been originally from California moved to Florida for the Walt Disney internship and Alex was currently living and working in Florida. After Stephanie finished school and Alex applied for a new position, he followed her and his dreams across country as they made a new home in Sunny San Diego.

Joy from Being Joy Photography captured their love as we visited some of the most iconic locations in San Diego on an unseasonably cold and windy day. Stephanie proved to be a complete bombshell in the custom Alyssa Kristin bridal gown and her flowers were provided by Wyld Blooms. Stephanie’s hair and makeup was provided by Flora Hair and Makeup. Stephanie and Alex, you both were such troopers braving the cold and wind! You deserve a lifetime of love and happiness and I wish you nothing but the best!


Sometimes, being a business owner, you get to create epic work. Like out of this world beautiful work. This week, I was commissioned to create such work and I am SO EXCITED!  Here is a sneak peak of where I will be for the next three days. Creating stunning photos of love, life and marriage. Follow along with my Insta stories @ashleynicoleevents_Inc or the photographer @beingjoyphotography to get more behind the scenes details! California, we are in love with you!

This is a sneak peak of our two day photo shoot. Apparently, Joy and I brought the Windy City with us, because San Diego reached record breaking lows with 40 mph wind gusts. It was quite the chilly day. Real life couple, Stephanie and Alex were such troopers braving the temperatures and looking stunning while we dragged them all over the city. We ended our day with some of the most adorable seals…San Diego, you have our hearts.
