manuel and christina knew back in high school that they would be together forever. they said “i do” shortly after graduation. fast forward through 10 years of sweet married life and here they are, right back in front of their family and friends saying those same two words to each other. nothing’s changed but their chonies. their love is amazing. you can see it whenever they look at each other. it definitely commands more than any pre-written generic vows could have offered, so they wrote their own, and filled them with happy memories of the time they’ve shared together. their stories of dog beach and disneyland brought smiles to our faces.
christina and manuel, thank you so much for inviting us to share in your intimate ceremony. we feel so blessed to have been there. i hope you know that your love inspires everyone that knows you. on a side note, as you look through these images i want you to realize how ridiculously good looking you both are. you two look even more incredible than the last time you were in front of our cameras 3 years ago. seriously, you guys are making me look bad. whatever you’re doing, keep doing it.
may God continue to bless you both, and give you many many more happy years together.
manuel and christina weren’t the only one’s celebrating on the rooftop that day at the andaz hotel in san diego. it was raining men in the pool on the east side of the roof.
have you ever noticed that there’s always that one guy that somehow stands out in a crowd? besides me?
let’s check the score. padres win! petco park went nuts when tony gwynn junior hit an inside the park homerun. now back to our regularly scheduled wedding.
kim got this shot of manuel and christina while i was setting up for another one.
what’s a six letter word for manuel and christina? fierce.
another kim shot.
look at that, i commented just like kim… three words or less.
dark stairways were made for sexytime.
the ivy ultra lounge is pretty hot, but manuel and christina are hotter.
the view from the roof top ceremony site was choice. i love this city!
this was such a powerful moment. the amount of love and raw emotion during the reading of their vows was overwhelming, for more than just christina. several of the guests couldn’t hold back their tears of joy for this beautiful couple. manuel and christina’s words showed us all that their love is even stronger today than it was when they first said i do to each other 10 years ago.
this is what being married is all about. manuel and christina’s loving support of each other was such a beautiful thing to witness.
why can’t i multi-task like this. stupid boy brain, not wired right.
there it is! that’s what we all came to see. congratulations, again, manuel and christina!
let the rooftop reception begin!
when i used to go clubbin i would ask women, that i wanted to talk to, what they would like to drink.
A LOT of them ordered this. it’s my signature drink.
christina’s red wedding shoes were awesome! me likey bright colors.
manuel and christina had molten chocolate and plenty of goodies to dip in it. april missed out big time. she’s a freak for chocolate fountains.
now this is how you feed each other wedding cake. half the fun is licking it off.
the chant came often, and it came loud… SHOT, SHOT, SHOT, SHOT, SHOT, SHOT!
and when the gold tequila runs out, we tap the silver.
picking the theme for these ring shots was easy.
as the evening came to a close, manuel and his beautiful bride ended their reception the same way they did 10 years before, by dancing in each others arms to kenny g’s wedding song. it was the perfect end to a perfect day.
