San Diego Navy Wedding
August 4, 2016
It was a beautiful summer day in San Diego, surrounded by their closest family and friends. With the sounds of seagulls in the background, Andee and Aaron exchanged vows and beautiful handcrafted wedding rings. Halfway through the ceremony, their one year old son Tycho joined them, claiming Andee’s lightsaber and paper flower bouquet as his own. It was so special to watch them make their family official; it was definitely a moment we’ll never forget!
Andee + Aaron’s Navy wedding is also super special because it’s not every day that you have a wedding where not only does the bride wear a gorgeous crimson red wedding gown, but a one that also takes place on a ship! But, it’s not just any ship: it’s the world’s oldest active sailing ship!! Built in 1863, it’s currently anchored at the Maritime Museum of San Diego and it was totally rad being able to have access to the top deck for this unique wedding (sorry for not knowing the correct nautical term for it, Aaron!). Totally fitting that these two tied the knot on a ship though, given that Aaron is active duty in the Navy (remember when we shot his homecoming??).
After their brief but beautiful ceremony, everyone headed over to Rei Do Gado – a delicious local restaurant with those amazing traveling meat carving stations. Sooo delicious!!
A big thanks to Andee + Aaron’s RAD creative team for coming together for this beautiful wedding!
