Del Mar Fairgrounds Wedding
When a deputy and nurse meet there is only one place they get married: the racetrack (insert horse noises)! Well at least that is what happened when Dom and Emily got engaged because the Del Mar Racetrack was a special place for these two unicorns. The reason is that Dom grew up in San Diego going to the Del Mar racetrack with his family every summer, and the day Dom asked Emily to be his girlfriend he took Emily to the racetrack for beer-fest and ponies. That sadly was the highlight of that day because they lost all their money and it was pouring rain the entire time (yes it rains in San Diego –twice a year). Oh and did I mention they got engaged at the Del Mar racetrack as well?! So yeah the racetrack is special to these two and the moment Dom and Emily heard that the Del Mar racetrack allowed weddings on the paddock both their faces completely lit up like a 15:1 pony crossing the finish line in first place! So this adventurous couple booked the wedding venue, invited 120 of their closest friends & family, and then invited this Palm Springs wedding photographer to join them in beautiful San Diego to capture their Del Mar racetrack wedding photos! We are at the homestretch of this blog post so let me conclude with Dom and Emily’s wedding was a perfect day, and if you don’t believe me just check out a handful of the photos from that day below! Cheers!
THANK YOU Dom and Emily for inviting me into your world to capture the start of your journey as kick ass husband and wife! You two really were the best even though Dom made me feel slightly insecure with myself when I saw him walking around the Del Mar Fairgrounds without a shirt (VIP TICKETS TO THE GUN SHOW!). In all seriousness, I really enjoyed getting to know you both and capture you in all your glory. I wish you both the absolute best! Oh and let me give a quick shout out to Rachel from San Diego Life Events for coordinating this wedding like a true red-headed boss! You ROCK Rachel!
