San Diego Courthouse Wedding | Emily + Dan

As a San Diego courthouse wedding photographer, I love when clients want to add a second location to their San Diego courthouse wedding. It can be a nearby location like the cactus garden at Balboa Park, or Sunset Cliffs, etc. In this San Diego Courthouse Wedding | Emily + Dan chose Coronado Beach as their second location. It is a special place for them where they would take long walks together throughout their relationship. You can also add an adventure location to your session like this engagement session at Mount Laguna. Whether you choose to add a second location or just keep it to the courthouse, know that the courthouse has much to offer as well!

Another great thing about having your wedding at the “Marriage Hut,” another term for the ceremonies at the San Diego courthouse is that you can bring your dog!!! I have had a couple clients now bring their pets. Dressing them up is optional but it is certainly adorable. Make sure they are leashed. I think it’s so fun to include the entire family!

Something I have learned is that they recently implemented “walk up Wedneday’s”. No appointment needed to get married, it is based on a first come, first serve basis. I have had one client do this and I believe we only waited around a little over 30 minutes. Not bad for the early afternoon. They were very organized and would approach us every time they needed something from us. I was very impressed!

Another tip when booking your ceremony time is the following. Either pick the early morning time slot or as close to sunset as possible. If possible, have your ceremony be 2 hours or 1.5 hours before sinset. The other option is to schedule the formal portrait session for later. See what you can work out with your photographer. Regardless of the time you end up getting though, your photographer will definitely have lots of areas to work with.
