Here's what our clients are saying
about their special day
Dear Christine and Steve,
Thank you for making our wedding day perfect in every way!
This was the best day of our lives and it was the two of you who really made that possible! The pictures are breathtaking!
And you surprised us with all these special detail shots too
(brooch on dress, shoes, hands held).
I've looked at the pics over and over and each one is just perfect!
How'd you do that?
We could not be happier with how Steve performed the service and the beautiful pictures that captured the moment perfectly.
Thank you so much!!

Bless You Christine and Steve!!!!
We love our Photos and our Wedding Day Album!!!
The pictures are fantastic. I felt like a queen and you made it so beautiful!
Plus there was a ship passing by in the background.
We love ships! What a gift from God for our special day...
not only to find the two of you,
but to be able to make the most wonderful event of our lives so memorable!!!
Thanks again for your sweet spirits and help on our wedding day!
Cheryl and Sam!! June 19, 2013 traveled from Minnesota
Thank you so much!!!
We really appreciate your willingness to let us be
so casual and untraditional!
Our kids had a blast - not having to be part of a stuffy ceremony.
We all loved it.
Renee, Russ and the girls Republic, MO July 2010
Christine and Steve: Thank you so much for performing our wedding.
It exceeded our expectations by leaps and bounds!
The weather was perfect and our families really enjoyed the whole experience. Roxee made a comment that Steve's demeanor
really helped to keep her calm and relaxed during the ceremony.
Thank you for sending the CD with our pictures!
The pictures are terrific and will be a nice addition to our post wedding party.
Our wedding day couldn't have been any better,
we appreciate everything you two did for us in making this our special day!
Roxee and Eric Moore Texas June 27, 2009
Thank you SOOOOOOOO much! The flowers were everything I could have dreamed of! We both love how quick and to the point our ceremony was, with two little ones running around.. there really couldn't have been a more perfect situation! We can't wait to see all the rest of the wedding photos...
Thanks again for our special day!
Shanna and James May 2010 Lemon Grove, California
Thank you again for the wonderful wedding
we had at Coronado Beach with your help.
It was all that we hoped for - just the right words for the ceremony and vows,
we were surrounded by beauty and nature and yet it felt very intimate.
We could tell that you both love your work
and knew instantly that we found the right people
to share this special day with us!
We received the pictures today and are just so delighted with them!
You captured the essence of us as a couple
and picked up on even the smallest of the "moments"
between us during and after the ceremony.
We are excited to share the rest of the photos with our family and friends.
They have already enjoyed seeing the photos on your blog
(even ones of other couples1) Much happiness to you both.
Abby and Holger Seidel May 2010 Palm Springs, California
Thank you for your wonderful elopement company..Awesome Idea !
You both made our wedding day a dream come true!
It was exactly as we expected and even more beautiful
and memorable than we anticipated.
The best-hassle-free and elegant wedding.
To be able to plan & make arrangements online....
within minutes and be confirmed with dates and flowers.... amazing!!
Thank you both a thousand times .
Carlota and Robert Kienke, Jr 7.15.09 Santee CA
We want to thank you for a very memorable wedding !
We could not have asked for a better ceremony
than the one you planned for us.
Thank for sending picutures so fast,
before my return to active duty.
Thank you very much also, for everything else you did for us.
We are both very happy we chose you for our wedding.
We wrote our own ceremony which was performed wonderfully by Steve
Christine, your photos came out beautifully.
We felt very comfortable with both of you.
I felt like I already knew Christine when we met at the wedding.
THANK YOU guys for creating a fabulous wedding!
Daisy and Michael Alfaro July 2009 Imperial Beach, CA
We could not be more pleased!
My husband is in the Army and Christine, you were very patient
and helpful dealing with us and all the very last minute planning.
The Ceremony; performed by Steve was perfect, just what we wanted; simply "romantic". The two of you make a fabulous team! Christine makes one feel comfortable right from the first contact,
as if you are talking with a friend you have know for years.
Like a friend, she is honest and explains exactly what you can expect
and not expect from their services. Our pictures are breathtakingly beautiful! Thank you both for making our beginning so memorable.
Again,Thank you both so much:-)
Vanessa and Omar July 14, 2009 Northern California
Thank You Sooo much for making our day so special.
I can't say enough good things about your services.
You guys were exactly what I wanted and
the pictures were more than I could have ever dreamed of!
On the day of the wedding when it was raining , we received a call from Steve, because Christine didn't want me, the bride,
to be upset that my day might be ruined by the rain.
Steve asked us what we wanted to do:
if we wanted to reschedule for another time or location.
We asked if we could wait another hour or so,
and he said that would be just fine.
After the hour passed...the sky cleared up and it was a beautiful day,
as you can see by the pictures!
You were both great throughout the whole thing
and I can't thank you enough!
If you're looking for a non-stressful wedding with beautiful pictures..ElopeSanDiego.com is the way to go!!!
Thanks again Steve and Christine!
Veronica and Carlos Montano from Tucson Arizona Nov 4, 2008
We had the most romantic wedding ceremony thanks to you guys!
First of all, the website alone is so detailed that you know
exactly what kind of ceremony you can have performed
by lovely photographs by Christine that are all over the site.
This elopement package is a great deal and perfect for couples
who don't want to make their wedding day some big "show"
but rather an intimate and personal day
between two people promising their lives to one another
-- which is exactly what we wanted.
Also, we had our dogs part of our special day -
Steve married us at a dog beach in Coronado
on the most beautiful sunny day!
And, Christine took these amazing photos of our puppies
smelling my bouquet of flowers,
the puppies looking up at us as we exchanged vows,
and then all of us jumping in the water and playing together.
It was truly the happiest day of my life and you guys made it happen!
Plus, Christine mailed our photos and CD
so that we could save them on the computer too...
in less than a week after the ceremony.
I recommend this elopement package and you two
to anyone who 's dream wedding is beach style and very small,
Catherine and Peter Chandler March 17, 2009 Flagstaff, AZ
We were married this morning by you Steve
and Christine did our photos...
within a couple of hours she had already sent us a few photos
as a preview before we get the prints and CD by mail.
She even took a few photos of us with my camera so I could e-mail my mom
and friends right away. We thought everything about the whole experience
was perfect, exactly what we had in mind when we initially started
searching for someone to marry us in San Diego.
I was also grateful for their recommendations for florists on their web-site.
I even plan to refer other friends to you in the future!
Amy and Daniel Wolters July 9, 2009 Yuba City, CA
Christine and Steve- We just wanted to send a quick note
to say thank you so much for your services on our
wedding day, July 7th in Coronado. The ceremony
was casual, quick and exactly what we wanted.
We know that you were a bit rushed and had other
happy couples to marry, but you did not make us feel that AT ALL!
Also, we received our photos and they are beautiful !
Each moment, whether with the family or private
between the two of us, was captured for us to
remember and cherish forever. You two truly make a great team
and your kindness, combined with your professionalism,
help to make our day perfect!
Thanks so much and best wishes to you both

Shari and Rob Campbell San Clemente, California October 2, 2009
Steve and Christine,
We just received the photos. They are really wonderful. As a matter
of fact, the entire ceremony/evening was just exactly what we were hoping
for. We put a lot of trust and faith in you both and we were not
disappointed, not in the least. To the contrary, we feel we received far
more value and perfect memories then we paid for. Steve, we have received
compliments on the words you spoke and Christine, we look forward to the
compliments we will undoubtedly receive from your work. What an incredible
service the two of you provide!!! It is apparent that you both love what you
do and care deeply about the quality of your work.
Although we only knew you
for a short time, you will always have a part in mine and Sherri's story.
With as much THANKS and APPRECIATION
as can be expressed in a short note,
The blissful newlyweds,

a special one for us.

Kara and Dustin Koerper Traveled from Spokane, Washington
for a Coronado Beach Wedding on 6.25.07
I wanted to take the time to write and let you know we received our pictures.
They are beautiful! You are an awesome photographer.
It was worth every penny we spent. We will treasure them always.
I had one blown up and put it above my fireplace
in a pretty frame and everyone comments that it looks like
something out of a magazine.
Usually wedding pictures end up in a drawer, not these.
I will cherish them in to my old age. Steve,
The ceremony was beautiful and you did just as we asked.
You were dressed so professional and you were awesome.
You made us feel as though we were the only couple
you were marrying that day and we all know how busy you were.
You were in contact with us to give us information and it made us feel so calm.
To the both of you Christine and Steve,
I wish you all the best with your business.
Your website is awesome and delivers exactly what it says it will and then some.
May God give you both long lives and
bless you as you truly have a gift for people.
Thank you again and feel free to use this testimonial!

but you both were so friendly and warm that we instantly relaxed and enjoyed

traditional wedding without sacrificing beauty, elegance and moments
that are truly beautiful and well preserved.
Thank you so much for making our last minute wedding dreams come true.
The pictures are awesome!
